A baby alligator is flushed down a Chicago toilet and survives by eating discarded laboratory rats injected with growth hormones. The small reptile grows gigantic, escapes the city sewers, and goes on a rampage.

The original Australian version of the film was edited down to secure a more commercial M rating (known as the "theatrical version") by removing 4 scenes of graphic violence. The cut scenes included footage of explicit gore and blood-spurts in the death of 3 of the characters plus the final killing of the razorback itself. The UK Anchor Bay and Australian Umbrella releases contain the theatrical version, though the 4 deleted scenes are available as extras on the Australian DVD. See more »
Call me stupid, but this is actually one of my favorite horror flicks. The story's about a giant wild boar munching on Aussies in the outback. Our hero goes in search of his wife...she's missing out there. Many interesting ideas come forth in this movie. I especially like the kangaroo killing brothers Benny and Dicko (hehe). The way the movie portrays them is interesting, contrasting the life of the outback trash to the much more civilized life of Bill, the hero. I also enjoyed the use of weird settings(the desert with that "horse") to create atmosphere. Overall, I enjoyed this flick a lot, and I think most horror fans would if they look beneath the seemingly ridiculous plot.
