B-Grade 80's Horror Fun,
This review is from: Alligator/ Alligator 2 - The Mutation  [DVD]  (DVD)
A must for fans of 80's horror flicks.
Alligator: Playing off an urban legend a baby alligator is flushed down the toilet and manages to survive in the sewers feeding off the discarded animal corpses dumped by an unethical chemical company that was performing hormone experiments. Years later the hormone riddled bodies have turned the baby alligator into a gargantuan killer that's hungry for human flesh. With enough gore to satisfy most horror fans Alligator is a fun b-grade romp through the genre with plenty of memorable moments and scenes.
Alligator 2 - The Mutation: Following the original movie fairly closely we once again see an ordinary alligator turned into a blood thirsty monster, this time after being mutated by toxic chemicals illegally dumped into the sewers. While the acting and storyline are a step down from the original movie most horror fans will be more disappointed by the very noticable drop in the amount of gore. Though not as good as the original Alligator 2 - The Mutation is definately worth a look and features horror movie notables Dee Wallace Stone (The Howling) and Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th)
