Tobe Hooper, best known for directing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, seemed to have ditched trying to get back to the big time at this point in his career and was instead carving a niche for himself directing commercial low budget romps, like this enjoyable killer croc opus.
A group of teenagers decide to spend the spring break getting drunk and boating round some lake in Southern California. However, the lake happens to be inhabited by a rather large, not to mention unfriendly, crocodile and after they disturb its nest, it decides to upturn their boat and start snacking on them.
Escaping cross-country, the survivors try to hike to safety. But it would appear this croc isn't about to give up its prey and proceeds to pursue them trough the woods, carving a trail of death and destruction in it's wake, as more and more of them fall prey to rampaging rubber croc (or CGI model depending on the scene) along with a few hapless locals.
Low budget and corny, but highly enjoyable. This may be a bit of a comedown from Tobe Hooper's "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" days (it sure won't win any awards), but it's still a very fun film and is probably the best DVD I've got change for a fiver from.
