A group of college friends rent a houseboat for their spring break. Ready for lots of fun in the sun, the group finds a nest of large eggs in the marshlands. One of the kids can't resist and brings one of the eggs back to the boat. What was suppposed to be a week of relaxing fun turns into sheer terror.

This movie doesn't have that much originality. It's just another one of those giant monster in the water films. You don't really have to pay attention to it that much, and it's just made to entertain. If you like creature films that are on the SYFY channel or giant monster movies, you might like this one. It isn't anywhere nearly as gory as PIRANHA 3D, and it isn't as good as that film either. It also isn't as good as the original PIRANHA or ALLIGATOR, but it's still a fun film. It has got some gore but it isn't over the top, and there's only a slight bit of nudity. It gets very fun in the second half of the film, but I thought that it should've been a little bit gorier. The story involves a guy who steals an egg from a giant crocodile. This causes the monster to hunt him and his friends who are vacationing around a lake in the woods; this is basically the setting for this film, so there's some nice scenery here. However, the film does lack atmosphere and would've been better...
Okay usually I don't like CGI films but this one took a bite out of me.Tobe Hooper(Director of Poltergeist and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1&2) along with F/X artists from the Tom Savini school makes this a fun romp thru the swamp.You will find the usual group of teenagers runnning afoul of one pissed off reptillian parent of a Crocodile.A B-movie that is fun and inventive despite so many other films in this Genre.I ordered this from supermart and it was delivered in no time-a few days later-and the quality of the film and the sound are great.If you like movies like Orca-the killer Whale,Jaws,and Alligator,then this is a must have for any true mother nature gone wild DVD collection.While there is one scene of CGI that will have you thinking that this Crocodile should be in the olympics there are several convincing scenes/mock-ups of this Beast that will impress you.Next up:Crocodile 2 the sequel which i saw on the sy/fy channel and also will be adding to my collection-soon!
This movie is terrifying! I used to love swimming on a warm summer's day. Not since seeing this movie! Tobe Hooper delivers once again. The real horror is that this could happen to you. I think it was "very loosely" based on an attack that happened in Australia a few years back. Of course the victims in the movie are a group of very attractive young people on a houseboat. The terror is palpable and I highly recommend that you add it to your "must-see" list!
