Killer Crocodile - A Killer Crocodile Movie

Killer Crocodile is an apt, if unimaginatively named Killer Crocodile, Italian horror movie from 1989.  I hadn't even heard about this one even when doing my research first time around for Killer Crocodile Season.  I stumbled across the title quite by accident while looking into something else, so of course I had to share.

Alligator - A Killer Crocodile Movie

Alligator is a 1980 Killer Crocodile movie, I did want to cover it during Killer Crocodile Season, but at the time I was unable to acquire a copy, so I'm covering it now.  According to some circles, it's supposed to be the JAWS of giant crocodile movies, but I shall be the judge of that.

Black Water - review (Killer Croc Season)

To be fair, I should have read more about this one before I did my Rogue review, but it was a last minute replacement as I couldn't get a copy of Crocodile.  Black Water was released in 2007, the same year as Rogue, it's also an Australian film, based in the Northern Territories, also in a mangrove swamp and it's also based on a true story, which you can read here.  Now that Rogue has set the bar for Australian giant crocodile movies, we'll see what Black Water brings to the table.

Mega Shark versus Crocosaurus - review (Killer Croc Season)

In 2009, The Asylum made a movie called Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus, I haven't actually seen this movie, but I did watch a review for it from Bad Movie Beatdown.  In 2010, they made a follow up with tenuous connections to the original film called Mega Shark versus Crocosaurus and the vague crocness of the Crocosaurus landed it on my list of giant crocodile movies.

Dinocroc vs. Supergator - review (Killer Croc Season)

Oh boy.  Well, I'm not entirely sure why I'm doing this to myself, but this one is going to be a doozey.  In 2004, famous B-movie maker, Roger Corman produced a movie for the Sci-fi channel called Dinocroc, about a genetically recreated Suchomimus, spliced with a modern crocodile, escaping from a lab and terrorising the locals.  Roger Corman wanted to make a sequel, Dinocroc 2, but the Sci-Fi channel told him that sequels didn't do well for them.  Roger Corman, being awesome, decided to make it anyway, but changed the name, that film became Supergator, this time about a genetically recreated Deinosuchus, escaping from a lab and terrorising locals.  Realising that Roger Corman is a crazy awesome lunatic who cannot be stopped, Sci-Fi eventually caved on the sequels and in 2010, Corman produced Dinocroc vs. Supergator.

Rogue - review (Killer Croc Season)

Rogue is a 2007 Australian horror film, which only made four and a half million back on it's twenty five million (Australian) dollar budget.  I was saving it for later, but I was basically very impatient and decided to just go ahead and watch it now.  I have generally had good experiences with Australian cinema, my favourites include Strictly Ballroom, Muriel's Wedding (I know it's a chick flick, but I like it, ok?), Black sheep and Gabriel, so because of this I have hope that this one might actually be good.

Lake Placid 3 - review (Killer Croc Season)

Lake Placid was released in 1999 to mixed reviews, but was a box office success.  Audiences enjoyed it's mix of horror and humour, it had good effects and a great cast.  This, however, is Lake Placid 3 a 2010 made for Sci-Fi/Syfy low budget sequel.
