Box Office



 Case: The "Alligator" revolves around a massive killing that alligator spreads panic and death in the sewers and the streets of Chicago.

One of the most entertaining horror movies with animals (or do monsters?) in the 80s was arguably the "Alligator". Despite its low budget, the cliche, calling them characters and fake standards for today's deadly alligator, this film manages to win our sympathy once at least provides us with 90 minutes of genuine entertainment, action and bloodshed.

The killer alligator lives in the sewers of Chicago and attacking unsuspecting victims arriving at dens. The film's protagonist is a an unlucky police officer named David who works with a erpetologo to detect and stop the hungry alligator. Initially the police claims about the existence of the alligator are not believed but after the death of a reporter who before dying managed to capture with the lens of the wild animal, city authorities mobilized to exolothreysi. The alligator would not be at all easy opponent and continues to sow panic, most sewer and beyond. At the same time, with the help of David erpetologoy continue their struggle chasing the alligator.

Horror Trivia

The "Alligator" is the last film in which participated the veteran actor Dean Jagger (Vanishing Point, White Christmas, etc.).

As mentioned don't expect surprises from "Alligator". Usually in such films the surprises and innovations are not ordinary feature but we enjoy for the frenetic pace, the aggressiveness of lethal animal-monster and the violent effects of this aggression. These items are fully on "Alligator" making the film enjoyable and impressive not only for the era and the present. The oversized alligator gives no chestnuts in exterminating anyone with enjoyable way the unfortunate that we found on the street. There are hard-hitting scenes in which we see she's put the victims whole in the oral cavity and the Devourer. The film stands decently and in interpretive piece unlike many similar subsequent films that become completely fake and annoying.

The origin of the alligator has the jazz when the seeing of small animal that was ending in the sewers through a toilet basin and then feeds on the dead mutant animals until they get the huge size (36 feet!). The "Alligator" is a wonderful version of the shark from "Jaws" in the environment of the city sewers in even more beastly form though. If you like horror movies with animals and aquatic monsters ' then the ' Alligator ' should be one of the next choices.


Movie Highlights
