Daniel Day Lewis lobbied hard for role of Bradley Turner. Tobe Hooper refused to cast him as he thought he "lacked range and screen presence". See more »
In the first scene, the guys in the car have the front windshield sprayed with water, but in the next shot, the windshield is dry, then it is sprayed again for the first time; then it looks like the windshield wipers had been turned on, but the characters were not shown doing that. See more »

I came across this flick combined with part 2 on a sell out of DVD's. Naturally I picked it up because I saw the name Tobe Hooper and for special effects I saw KNB, what could go wrong.
Everything goes wrong. I have seen all the classics directed by Hooper and they were all great, so many to mention but let me just say Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) but this one was rather good on the part of directing but I guess that's all that worked. The effects are for the most part CGI and one of the kind that looks like done by old computers. The croc never looked believable and made moves that a croc never could make. He even jumps into the air. But it's really the script that sucks. This has nothing to do with the croc, this has everything to do with love stories and affairs.
The CGI is laughable but the story goes that it was meant to be a bad movie on all accounts. I just can't believe that KNB or even Tobe would go for such a flick. And what was the part that KNB did, the croc in the water? Nothing is gory or whatsoever and aren't they known for their gore?
The acting is also something that good have been better. But most of the actors were doing their first flick here and it really shows. You just couldn't care about who is going to be eaten by the croc. I haven't got any problem with bad movies but this one really had nothing to offer. I rather would go for those old Drive-in flicks or exploitations but this, no thank you.
