It lives 50 feet beneath the city. It’s 36 feet long. It weighs 2,000 pounds… and it’s about to break out! A baby alligator is flushed down a toilet and survives by eating discarded lab rats that’ve been injected by experimental growth hormones. But when the once-tiny family pet escapes the sewers and goes on a rampage in the city, it’s up to an easygoing detective and a herpetologist to stop the carnage. Written and directed by animal attack movie veterans John Sayles (PIRANHA, THE HOWLING) and Lewis Teague (CUJO) and starring Robert Forster (JACKIE BROWN) in one of his most memorable roles, ALLIGATOR is a sly thriller with a surprising amount of bite!
