Alligator is one of those all-timers. It doesn’t get old. Each time you view it, it gets better and better. The whole nature horror trend that ran through the 70’s and 80’s needs to make a comeback. It’s an amazing genre that gave us some of our favorite killer animal cult classics.
The synopsis for Alligator goes like this:
“From director Lewis Teague (Cujo, Cat’s Eye) and screenwriter John Sayles (Piranha, The Howling) comes an unstoppable thriller with bite. After returning from their Florida vacation, the Kendal family decides their pet baby alligator is too much to take care of and they flush him down the toilet. At the same time, Slade Laboratories is conducting secret experiments with animals and disposing of them in the sewer. The baby alligator, fending for itself, must feed on anything it can … including the dead animals. Now, twelve years later, when several murders happen in the city of Chicago, David Madison (Robert Forster, Jackie Brown) is put on the case to find out who … or what … is killing people.”
