Michael Reilly Burke,
Ah, yet another bad movie I caught on the Sci-Fi channel. I have developed a very unhealthy addiction to B-movies lately. I bet every time I watch one of these, it shaves a year off my lifespan.
There's nothing of real interest in this one, but after watching it, I started wondering: how come carnivals are always so incredibly evil in movies? Every movie carnival I've ever seen has a spooky Gothic atmosphere, the only ride is a ferris wheel, and all the carnies look and act like Satan's minions. I remember carnivals being FUN when I was a kid, but filmmakers seem to hate them. I'm not sure who or what started this, but I suspect Ray Bradbury has something to do with it.
As far as the alligator goes, it is not very scary. The ending sequence, with the heroes trapped in the water with the gator, is rather exciting, but there is not much else. This is obviously a Jaws rip-off, but the truth is, sharks are scarier to watch than alligators and that's all there is to it.
