9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By 100% great 150% horror lover on 22 April 2007
Format: DVD
I never really liked much of

the 80's

apart from a nightmare on elm street

and afew others!

This however was fab!!!

In 'Alligator' a pet alligator is flushed down the toilet. Once in the sewers it feeds on contaminated dog flesh used in illegal experiments. Mutated by chemicals it stands thirty-six feet long with an insatiable appetite for flesh. 'Alligator 2' sees the continued fight against the mutant alligator in the sewers. This time the task is assigned to a cop and his rookie assistant.

Very gor, but not

scary, highly

fun!!!

I RECCOMEND THIS!!!

I remember seeing this film years ago,so when I spotted it on Amazon I just had to buy it.
It is a classic if not predictable type of horror movie,although by todays standards probably a bit tame.
The plot is very good with plenty of gore along the way.
Alligator 2, which is also in this set is a poor attempt at a sequel.It just doesn't compare to the original.The acting and the story is very weak.If you buy this as I did purely for the original Alligator film then you won't be dissapointed.
As with many sequel films the first is in this case always going to be the best.

After the success of Jaws, it was inevitable that the imitations would follow. Usually that means cheap script, wooden acting and laughable special effects. This double-bill bucks that trend and although well made, it has to be said that Alligator is the superior of the two while Alligator 2 - The Mutation is somewhat mundane.

Alligator is based on the myth that alligators which were bought as pets and had outgrown their homes were flushed down the toilet and had now grown to giant proportions. What could be more frightening than the thought of a giant predator living beneath your feet, ready to break out at any moment and start chewing on unsuspecting residents? The special effects are superb, no CGI back then so a giant alligator, fully functioning was built for some of the attack shots. Then the cast put in a fine turn, most notably Henry Silva as the inebriate, arrogant white hunter who doesn't realise what he is up against. This is horror/comedy at its best and in my opinion is more entertaining than Jaws.

Alligator 2 - The Mutation is not actually a sequel but a film in the Jaws mould. A giant predator turns up at a small town just as the residents are preparing for the annual town fair, which just happens to take place by the lake. Of course there is the town mayor who will let nothing get in the way of this annual money-spinner as well as the corrupt developers who want a return on their investment. The final production feels like it was made as a TV movie with some clips from the first film edited into this one. Not as good as the first one but as a double-bill it is worth checking out.

Aligator is still as I remember got to watch it all but I've check just to make sure it's ok don't no about second one yet till I watch it all seen bits don't think it beats first one especially since they use same music as kingdom of spider just add that spark scare to film but if you've not seen it a good watch if you like that sort of thing depends what you like from a film I've watched most films horrors mostly and I think it's ok

Alligator is surprisingly good for an aging, low-budget monster movie. Having watched this as a kid and loved it, I thought I might be remembering it through rose-tinted glasses but that's not the case. Despite the budget limitations, the special effects are actually pretty good: much more convincing than the dodgy CGI of Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus and the like which is now so prevalent. The acting's also pretty good for this level of film with Robert Forster putting in a good performance in the star role and Dean Jagger is a splendidly unscrupulous villain. Things are also helped by the fact that the concept isn't too far outside the possibility of reality.

Alligator 2, on the other hand is every bit as bad as you would expect. Forget the fact that the new twist (it's venomous!) is pretty redundant when the alligator's 30' long and kills instantly: there's so much bad about this that it barely registers. Glimpses of the monster are limited to a metre of its hide or a flash of its jaws, as though there wasn't even the money to make the full monster. the defining scene is a bizarre one where, just before the rampage begins, the film's villain holds court on the world's smallest ferris wheel. It's comically ridiculous.

But never mind the second film's shortcomings: just consider it a bonus disk and enjoy the first film as a genuinely decent film.

This double feature pack from Anchorbay U.K. is definitely worth it for the first film - you won't regret it. Alligator is one of the many real-life monster films that followed hot on the heels of Spielberg's Jaws. In some ways you could almost think of it as Jaws-with-legs. It has a lighter tone than that film (mainly due to a slyly funny script), but boasts some admirable carnage (which starts right from the outset with some alligator wrestling) and an excellent performance by the always dependable Robert Forster. Highly entertaining, and never taking itself too seriously, Alligator is a great popcorn muncher. You never have to exert yourself too much mentally, just sit back and enjoy the ride, eco-horror "look what we're doing to nature, isn't-science-evil" message. Sure, the special effects are a little hokey (nice use of miniatures with a real alligator, though), and there's a decided lack of seriousness, but this is a hell of a lot of fun. I think this is a pretty good flick which has dated a little, but still has a lot to recommend it.

Alligator begins with a scene of alligator wrestling which takes place in Florida. We witness one of the alligator wrestlers being bitten and, soon after, we see a little girl buy a baby alligator. Once taken home, the baby alligator is ceased by an irate father and flushed down the toilet. Cut to a few years later and the little girl has grown up to become an attractive herpetologist. Moreover the alligator has also matured. Having been feeding upon the dead animals that are dumped in a nearby sewer in New York by an inhumane (not to mention illegal) testing lab, the alligator (called Ramon) has now digested enough dodgy chemicals to grow to about twice the size of a limousine!
