Of all the Jaws clones, this is both the best and the worst of the lot. It deals with a gigantic alligator, who is running loose in the sewers and the streets of Chicago, munching on the various people who pass by. Only a tough cop (Robert Forster) and a scientist (Robin Riker) can put a stop to the creature's eating habits, before it makes a complete mess of the city.

I'm really divided on this one. I think it's a good spoof on the cheesy monster films of the past few decades. The hilariously clunky effects are proof that the filmakers are not attempting to take their subject seriously. Still, there is the major problems of some really bad acting and times when the filmakers try to make it more of a full-blown horror film, and less of a spoof. It's not perfect and it's far from the greatest of horror films. It's the type of movie that has to be seen at a drive-in theater to be truly appreciated.

My Rating = Two Stars
