REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 24-Jun-2006)

The Alligator People is a surprisingly captivating flic about atomic human mutation in the alligator-filled swamplands of the American deep south. Unlike many bombs from the 1950's horror genre, The Alligator People lives up to its sexy title -- and it does not hurt to have steamy Bruce Bennett of Tarzan fame in the fun flic's cast. If for no other reason, watch Alligator People for the credibility it gives to the often tired notion that low-budget means low impact. Let The Alligator People put its bite on you the next time you're in the mood for roughing it in the Cinemascope wild. Frank Recchia
