Review:'s pretty to look at (thanks Sergio Martino) except for the ridiculous "attack" sequences, at least the scenery is nice! The plot is about a tourist resort in Africa that Barbara Bach and friends have come to visit for a modelling shoot. While they are partying it up the natives are getting eatten by a *cough* giant alligator. The natives blame the tourists and well things get less friendly from there. They don't even try with the big alligator, seriously bad, you can see that they are using some sort of alligator bone I think for the jaw, but mainly cutaway seens and orange water is what you'll be treated too. The thing is that it's so excrusiatingly boring that by the end when something does happen I'd already given up and didn't care. If you want to see an alligator movie, Alligator (1980) should be much better crunch for your rubber alligator buck!
