RACEHORSE SCREENING ROOM

"Alligator"

(1980)

Director: Lewis Teague

Writer: John Sayles

A late 70s creature feature "Jaws" ripoff that is way better than it deserves to be for a few reasons:

  1. quality special effects for such a low budget

  2. several cool and eerie alligator eyeball close-up shots

  3. a good cast that takes everything completely seriously, led by the late, great Robert Forster and natural 70s babe Robin Riker.

  4. a John Sayles script that interjects his world view with many anti-corporate, anti-capitalism messages, culminating in a slaughter during a wedding of the elite. Eat the rich indeed.
