Critic Reviews for The Alligator People
Screams and explosions ensue, and no movie was ever harmed by having a Lon Chaney on board.
No excerpt available.
Professionally made cheap thriller that's enjoyably silly.
Audience Reviews for The Alligator People
Classic 50's sci-fi horror. If you have any interest in these types of movies then this will not disappoint you. This is not the best out there and it's definitely not for big fans of modern horror/sci-fi disaster films (not films about disaster, rather films that are pure garbage, i.e., The Day After Tomorrow).
Ungodly slow at the beginning, it picks up steam later on. Basically a retelling of the Isle of Dr. Moreau. Why is it mad scientists are always in sme delapidated old mansion in the "woods/swamp" and have like a bazillion dollars in super scientifc equipment? Were they able to buy said equipment from the money they saved on gardners and home maintainence?
This is a very strange movie, part mystery, part horror, and part horrible movie. I wouldn't recommend it, but it's an interesting B-movie anyway.
