DVDDrive-In Review

It’s 1891: Lieutenant Claude de Ross (Claudio Cassinelli), a military doctor, and a few newly escaped convicts are shipwrecked on a mysterious tropical island. They soon come across a strange couple: the sadistic Edmund Rackham (Richard Johnson) and the beautiful Amanda Marvin (Barbara Bach). The doctor finds out that Amanda’s father, professor Ernest Marvin (Joseph Cotten), is a mad scientist who is experimenting on horrible human-fish mutations. While Professor Marvin is convinced that he’s doing his research for humanitarian motives, Rackham has other plans, since he has discovered an incredible secret lying beneath the island.

In the tradition of the classic ‘animal revenge’ movies “Jaws” and “Piranha” comes Sergio Martino’s Alligator, a blood-soaked tale of greed. Third World exploration and karmic comeuppance starring Barbara Bach and Claudio Cassinelli. Vampire bats and cobras aren’t the only sentient creatures disturbed by blasting in the steaming jungle of Southeast Asia. When construction for an exclusive Club Med-style resort encroaches onto territory that the Kuma natives hold sacred, their alligator god Kroona takes it personally.

Exploitation meets animal revenge flicks like JAWS and ANACONDA in this gory jungle romp by Sergio Martino (GAMBLING CITY). Barbara Bach (THE SPY WHO LOVED ME) and Claudio Cassinelli (WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO YOUR DAUGHTERS?) star as patrons of a tourist resort in Africa. The natives worship a shapeshifting god named Kroona, which they believe manifests itself in an enormous, man-eating crocodile. When a few of the locals perish in the crocodile’s jaws, the natives conclude that Kroona has been angered by the encroachment of the resort onto his sacred grounds, and they set about massacring the Westerners. As the survivors try to escape on a boat, they must fend off the bloodthirsty croc while the murderous natives await them on land. Written by Ernesto Gastaldi, who wielded the pen behind Martino productions like TORSO, ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK, and the canonized giallo THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH, this eco-horror film also stars Mel Ferrer (BLOOD AND ROSES, CITY OF THE WALKING DEAD) and Richard Johnson (ZOMBIE).

Somewhere deep in the jungle a chemical corporation dumps tons of toxic waste in a still active volcano. Two environmentalists try to expose these illegal ways of getting rid of hugely dangerous waste, but they get caught by the vigilantes working for the company. One of them, the super-hot Maria Giulia Cavalli, manages to escape and she is saved by a snake farmer who lives alone in the jungle. Together they try to bring down the company, but it’s too late. Years of chemical poisoning have spawned a deadly monster that is set out to exact revenge on the humans that have unknowingly brought him to life.
