Killer Crocodile 2 title

 

Killer Crocodile 2Well it seems that the film makers wanted to get as much mileage as possible out of their giant rubber croc, as just one year after the exceptionally cheesy "Killer Crocodile" came out, this even cheesier sequel was unleashed onto an unsuspecting public... WHAT THE BLOODY HELL FOR????

Directed this time by special effects man Giannetto DeRossi the story picks up more or less from where the previous film left off and stars in a similar vein to its predecessor, as another couple get munched on at a lake, before we are treated to some scenes of the employees from the chemical company from the previous film getting their come-uppance when the killer croc starts snacking on them.

Anthony Crenna and Thomas Moore reprise their roles from the previous film, returning to hunt down the new killer croc. Only this time they’re joined by a nosy news journalist played by Debra Karr.

Looking even more rubbery and fake than before, there are some absolute howlers in the film as the croc upturns a motor boat full of school kids and nuns, then proceeds to chomp on them. Three guys in a cabin refuse to believe their friends story about a giant croc in the swamp, then right on cue it bursts in through the side wall and devours them and then there are numerous local folk who end up as Croc food.

Dumber, cheesier and stupider, this really is one of those films that is enjoyable for all the wrong reasons. So if you liked the last film, then you should have a blast with this!

Film score : 4/10.

Terrifying Trivia.

  • This was only the second film that Gianetto DeRossi has ever directed. The first one was the Italian film "Cy Warrior : Special Combat Unit".
     

  • Although Riz Ortolani is credited for the music again, the soundtrack was basically rehashed from the first film to save on money.
     

  • Filmed back to back with "Killer Crocodile".
     

  • Anthony Crenna appears to have sunk back into obscurity after appearing in the film. Indeed, aside from some minor bit-part roles, his only major film credits appear to be Killer Crocodile 1 & 2.
     

  • Script co-writer Dardanno Sacchetti also worked on "City of the Living Dead", "The Last Hunter", "Cannibal Apocalypse", "House by the Cemetery", "Cut and Run" and "Demons 2". He also did uncredited work on "Zombie Flesh Eaters" and "Amityville 2 : The Possession".
