Storyline

Excitement and joy descends upon a small mid Florida town called Peaceful Creek commencing Spring Break 2017. NDMD 11 news station is broadcasting on the upcoming events,. News comes in that a local farmer, Jack Straw, has unearthed a prehistoric skull and is fast to respond to the find. Sammy, the local news commentator, makes a call to her boyfriend, Mathew Debrie. Mathew, a recently graduated Paleontologist, is quick on the scene. As he slowly polishes off the dirt, he is amazed to find that it is the skull of a monstrous Crocodylus, a Nile crocodile whose only evident existence was thought to be deep in the African continent. Mathew calls his close friend, Dr. David Williams, a fellow Harvard student, who takes an immediate flight from New York to Pleasant Creek. On his arrival all hell breaks loose as a young boy was savagely taken by a gator while he was fishing in the lake. A tooth lodged in the child's buoyancy vest confirms a reptile but this is no GATOR ATTACK...... Written by Firecreek Entertainment LLC

It's like 'Birdemic' with better effects but no charm.
14 June 2020 | by featurecreatureshowSee all my reviews

First some praise, most of the effects are practical and the gore (body parts in particular) are decent especially for such a low budget film. Also it's only 70 mins, so like ripping off a very sticky and painfully stubborn bandage. Now, for the negatives, story was bland, acting was abhorrent, dialogue was somehow both boring and confusing, characters were two-dimensional if any dimension and the monster is just a gator-boy. Like 'Jaws' (a bit too much like, even referencing it) the main driving point is the interactions and struggles the characters face with each other rather than the monster itself. In order to do that you need believable and interesting characters and dialogue which this film has neither. Every conversation is hurried, with little pause in-between one another's sentences, leaving little time for the audience to process what was just said, as if it actually matters. The dialogue is either exposition or really poor attempts to add flavor to a character, and is delivered with the enthusiasm as an oak tree. I can probably prattle on about how bad the monster is, or how conveniently lazy the story is at progress its plot but I won't. This movie already took up enough of my time. A so bad it's boring kind of film.
