ALLIGATOR (1980) Summary

He lives 50 feet below the city. It is 36 feet long. He weighs 2,000 pounds … and he’s about to explode!

From director Lewis Teague (Cujo, cat’s eye) and screenwriter John Sayles (Piranha, the howl) comes an unstoppable thriller with bite. After returning from their vacation in Florida, the Kendal family decide their baby pet alligator is too much to care for and they flush him down the toilet. At the same time, Slade Laboratories conducts secret experiments with animals and disposes of them in the sewers. The baby alligator, on its own, must feed on everything it can … including dead animals. Today, twelve years later, when several murders occur in the city of Chicago, David Madison (Robert Forster, Jackie brown) is put on the case to find out who… or what… is killing people.
