ALLIGATOR (Theatrical Release USA 1980)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Alligator may be a typical 1980s-style B-grade film, but it works as a great horror movie with all the right bells and whistles. The movie uses good storytelling, excellent timing, and the correct buildup of musical scoring to create ambience that competes with some of the best edge-of-the-seat entertainment out there. Know that it is not a high-profile film, but it is a fun watch. Know that it is not a family view film due to gore and some sexual scenes.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The movie is slightly reminiscent of Spielberg’s Jaws series and catches the horror factor very well throughout the movie. If this is the emotion looked for, this film provides it realistically, repetitively, and professionally. No lack here in a horror film. Good watch; worth buying the ticket.
