Well done Jaws recreation replaces the shark in the ocean with an alligator in the sewer system. This alligator apparently fed on dogs that were used as test subject to experiment a formula that supposedly made the them grow twice their size within several months. As a result of his feeding habit, the formula got into the alligator's system and he then began terrorizing the city. The script has a few problems and the acting is so-so by a virtually unknown cast, but Alligator proves to be exciting just below the level of Jaws. Followed by a sequel in 1990.
