Teague, an American director, has worked often with John Sayles as screenwriter for his films, and with Roger Corman and Dino de Laurentiis as producers. Teague's films often center around characters who are terrorized by some force from without. In Fighting Back (1982), the threat comes from violent criminals; in Cujo (1983) a family is menaced by a rabid dog. Teague's direction has a liveliness that occaisionally compensates for the harshness of his films and their violent subject matter. Leonard Maltin writes Alligator (1981 -- probably Teague's most successful effort to date), "If you've got to make a film about a giant alligator that's terrorizing Chicago, this is the way to do it -- with a sense of fun to balance the expected violence and genuine scares."
