Top 13 Killer Animal Flicks!
Every intelligent movie watcher tries to take a lesson away from each film they view. Sometimes the filmmakers hide the lesson within the folds of the film, urging the savvy viewer to seek it out. Other times the message is quite clear, as is the case in Alligator. The message this film is broadcasting is simple…for god’s sake don’t flush baby alligators that you purchase on vacation down your toilet because sooner or later they are going to come across some wonky experimental growth chemical in the sewer, grow to 36 feet long and terrorize Chicago. As life lessons go, this is a pretty good one to keep close to your heart. Alligator is another fun, giant-beast-on-the-rampage film that has spent its existence getting audiences to cheer for the monster as it makes its way through a pile of tasty bodies.
Lake Placid (1999)
Everything about Alligator was ramped to a ridiculous level in Lake Placid. Another animal attack flick with a pretty impressive cast which included Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda, Oliver Platt, Brendan Gleeson and the unforgettable Betty White. Any film that has the former “Golden Girls” star utter the line “If I had a dick, this is where I’d tell you to suck it!” is golden in my book! Lake Placid was a creature feature on performance enhancing drugs. Great comedy, awesome monster and a story with a quality twist. What more can you ask for in a good killer croc pic?
