Take a Bite Out of the Trailer for RoboCroc
For the majority of this trailer you’ll probably find yourself thinking this film looks like a Syfy knock-off of Piranha 3DD but with a crocodile terrorizing a water park instead. Except this is no ordinary crocodile - it’s RoboCroc!
When a top-secret unmanned spacecraft disintegrates on re-entry, its mysterious military payload crash-lands in the crocodile habitat of a place called Adventure Land, a combination water park, amusement land and world-famous crocodile exhibit. Following its pre-programmed instructions, the payload – a next-generation nanotech-based combat drone – finds a host in the form of the park’s prize twenty-foot Australian Saltwater crocodile, Stella. She is the largest saltwater croc in captivity. Immediately upon infecting its host, the drone payload’s nanobots begin to transform Stella from an organic, living creature into a lethal killing machine with only a single directive: survival! Before Chief Zoo-keeper Tim Duffy and reptile biologist Jane Spencer are able to figure out what’s going on, they find the park taken over by the government team responsible for the secret project. As the crocodile continues to transform, it escapes the crocodile exhibit and enters the water park, running amok, killing dozens of patrons. But that’s just the beginning…
Mr. Syfy Corin Nemec (too numerous to list) and genre icon Dee Wallace (Gremlins, The Howling, E.T.) star in this Syfy-bound flick from UFO International Productions.
Going to take a wild guess and speculate that most of the movie will play out like a Lake Placid sequel set at a water park until the last 10-15 minutes when we’ll finally see this croc in full robotic “Terminator Gator” glory.
That UFO Films uploaded the trailer to YouTube with the title misspelled as “Robocrock" makes you wonder if it was merely a typo they’ve failed to correct or if that’s their way of telling us they think their own movie is a crock.
