Editorial Reviews

A group of college friends rent a houseboat for their spring break. Ready for lots of fun in the sun, the group finds a nest of large eggs in the marshlands. One of the kids can't resist and brings one of the eggs back to the boat. What was suppposed to be a week of relaxing fun turns into sheer terror.

By Jeffrey Leach HALL OF FAME on June 9, 2004
Format: DVD
I can't say for certain whether Tobe Hooper's film "Crocodile" was the one to kick off the spate of low budget beastie flicks currently plaguing video store shelves. It might have been the one, though, since Hooper's activities have been known to attract copycats. Perhaps this director is simply ripping off his own work, as he was the one who made the atrocious "Eaten Alive" back in the late 1970s. That film involved a killer crocodile (or was it an alligator?) wreaking havoc in the bayous of Louisiana. Well, "Crocodile" is a much, much better film than "Eaten Alive," but it isn't anything to brag about to your friends. It's sort of sad that Hooper's film career has had more downs than ups. "Crocodile" will probably not rescuitate his flagging career. While the movie is often fun to watch, we need to be honest with ourselves and admit that we have seen this all before. Aside from "Eaten Alive," the 1970s and early 1980s saw a huge number of similarly themed films. You had alligators roaming through sewers, piranhas preying on swimmers, and sharks shutting down beaches. I'm guessing these movies have something to do with the human need to believe in civilization. By conquering whatever nature can throw at it, humanity proves its own inestimable worth and confirms its position as ruler of the earth.
Before we can believe we are truly superior, we must make the requisite number of sacrifices to nature. In the case of "Crocodile," that means a bunch of college age kids heading out to a lake for a few days of summer fun. You've got Brady (Mark McLachlan), Claire (Caitlin Martin), Duncan (Chris Solari), Kit (D.W. Reiser), Annabelle (Julie Mertz), Sunny (Sommer Knight), Foster (Rhett Jordan), and Hubs (Greg Wayne) serving as the soon to be victims.

A group of teenagers plan a fun filled Spring Break on a house boat. One day the group stumble upon a load of crocodile eggs (most of them smashed already). Goofing around they break one and steal another. The next day they wake up and realise that the boat managed to drift away and none of them have any clue where the hell they are. That's not their only problem, for the mother(named Flat Dog) is extramly mad and wants revenge. After reviewing Blood Surf I remembered that I hadn't reviews Crocodile, so here it is. I highly enjoyed this flick and seriously think it should of gone to the cinema so it's ten times better then a few movies that have gone to the cinema, it's got quite alot of scares, I can't count the amount of times I jumped out of my seat. The movie has some cool gore and a nice script and is helped by some likable charicters. This is a great started for all the young actors in this movie, each one of them look to be having a blast in their roles and do a superb job as well. I still can't believe I didn't get a chance to see this on the big screen it's so good. I found myself into this movie very quickly it was truly a brilliant movie, I have my DVD ordered. I highly recommend this movie to any one of you (but there is a little bit of cheese, Croc pushing a car into the water to distroy the evadence anyone??) but who cares, it's to damn entertaining.

I can enjoy a bad movie if it is funny, creative, or at least entertaining. "Crocodile" is one of those movies, even if it is not very good.
Two main problems:
1) The characthers are hard to tolerate. You even root for the crocodile. Really. They are childish, obnoxious and plain stupid.
2) The movie steals from everywhere. It starts with a comparison between sex and pizza, taken from "Threesome". Horror scenes that seems to be taken from "Night of the Living Dead", "Anaconda" and other are probably to "honor those monster flicks" (yeah, right).
But there are some nice scares, and the last scenes are so foolish that you have to laugh in an enjoyable way. At least the movie keeps you entertained and it even surprises you.
By the way, regarding other reviewers that complains that the movie is cheap (an usual comment on "B-movies"), please remember that the best horror flicks ("Night of Living Dead", "Halloween", "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", other) were very cheap. I am not comparing "Crocodile" against these classics, but it shows that is not the money and technology what counts.

This movie doesn't have that much originality. It's just another one of those giant monster in the water films. You don't really have to pay attention to it that much, and it's just made to entertain. If you like creature films that are on the SYFY channel or giant monster movies, you might like this one. It isn't anywhere nearly as gory as PIRANHA 3D, and it isn't as good as that film either. It also isn't as good as the original PIRANHA or ALLIGATOR, but it's still a fun film. It has got some gore but it isn't over the top, and there's only a slight bit of nudity. It gets very fun in the second half of the film, but I thought that it should've been a little bit gorier. The story involves a guy who steals an egg from a giant crocodile. This causes the monster to hunt him and his friends who are vacationing around a lake in the woods; this is basically the setting for this film, so there's some nice scenery here. However, the film does lack atmosphere and would've been better if it had more suspense. Even though Tobe Hooper's directing here isn't nearly as good as TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, this is still a decently directed film. There's no extreme gore, but you get to see some blood spraying with the crocodile eating people. The film moves decently, and the tone of the film isn't depressing. It looks like a SYFY channel monster movie, and it's a lively film; the dark and depressing tone of some of Hooper's other films isn't here.

The menu screen for the DVD is good, and the quality of the DVD is excellent.
