The Big Alligator River
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Vampire bats and cobras arent the only sentient creatures disturbed by blasting in the steamy jungles of Southeast Asia. When construction for an exclusive Club Med-style resort encroaches onto territory that the Kuma natives hold sacred, their alligator god Kroona takes it personally.
Another collaboration between director Sergio Martino and screenwriter Ernesto Gastaldi, the creative team behind such seminal Italian gialli as THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH, TORSO and ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK, this paradise-set eco-nightmare boasts lush locations and an extremely high body count.
Also in the cast are distinguished stage and screen actors Mel Ferrer (BLOOD AND ROSES, CITY OF THE WALKING DEAD) and Richard Johnson (THE HAUNTING, ZOMBIE), as well as Italian players Bobby Rhodes (DEMONS, DEMONS 2), Romano Puppo (STREET LAW, THE LAST SHARK) and child actress Sylvia Collatina (THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, MURDEROCK). Who lives who dies only Kroona knows!

The Evil Below and The Great Alligator (aka Alligator, Big Alligator River) are my favorites. Evil Below is noteworthy for its unusual mix of demonism and undersea horror. A Caribbean treasure hunt thriller with borrowings from Satan's Triangle and Jaws.
But The Great Alligator is better still. Cheesy, shamelessly derivative, stunningly stupid, and enormously enjoyable. In other words, your typical low-budget Italian ripoff.
You already know the plot. You've seen it before. Here it is again: A greedy white businessman (Mel Ferrer) opens an ostentatious hotel in a third world jungle. His timing is awful. Something in the river has begun killing people.Read more ›
