When I first heard about Sewer Gators I didn’t have high hopes but sometimes you find a gem in these indie horror movies. They are either a horror masterpiece you will talk about for years. Or one you just talk about for years.
Sewer Gators from writer/director Paul Dale revolves around a small town in Louisiana, plagued by alligator attacks stemming from the local sewer system. Climbing out of toilets, faucets and even the kitchen sink. It is up to the town Sherriff, a gator specialist and a gruff hunter who is only interested in looking after themselves to save the town from the threat below their rear ends.
Sewer Gator doesn’t take itself too seriously thankfully and is great for laughs. The town is full of stereotypical characters and plenty of cheesy lines to go with it. You can sense some of the inspirations for the different characters which was a cool side activity while watching. Some of these included the mayor from Jaws or even Burt from Tremors. Let us know who else you can pick.
The CGI budget for Sewer Gators often worked to hilarious effect. There are plenty of gators on screen, but only one is rendered in CGI. The rest are, well I will leave that up to you to experience. Along with some awesome sound bites to set the mood.
At the end of the day Sewer Gators is a low budget indie movie. The acting is as you would expect as is everything else but the team did the hard work putting it together. With some truly corny scenes, and some brilliantly bad practical effects it has found a home in my head and I am not sure why. Maybe it is the theme song at the end.
Sewer Gators is just under an hour long and coming to VOD, DVD, Blu-ray, collectible VHS and YouTube on June 3rd. Grab your friends and have a good laugh seeing a truly ridiculous premise that offers a lot of laughs and fun.
