Massive bonus features for Alligator 4K UHD in Feb

Disc Announcements, News

Alligator came out during that time when Hollywood discovered that giant mutant creatures could eat people. The movie quickly gained a following with the fear of what happened to all those pet alligators that were mailed across America from ads in the back of comic books. Where did they go when moms flushed them down the toilets? In this case, they didn’t go too far, but they grew out of control as they lurked in the sewer system. The film is getting upgraded to 4K UHD with a mouthful of bonus features including the television version. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory with all the details:

Los Angeles, CA – It lives 50 feet beneath the city. It’s 36 feet long. It weighs 2,000 pounds… and it’s about to break out! Alligator (Collector’s Edition) comes snapping on February 22, 2022 in a 4K UHD™ + Blu-ray™ combo pack from Scream Factory. Special features will be announced at a later date.

Customers ordering from will receive a rolled 18×24 poster featuring the brand new art while supplies last. 

From director Lewis Teague (Cujo, Cat’s Eye) and screenwriter John Sayles (Piranha, The Howling) comes an unstoppable thriller with bite. After returning from their Florida vacation, the Kendal family decides their pet baby alligator is too much to take care of and they flush him down the toilet. At the same time, Slade Laboratories is conducting secret experiments with animals and disposing of them in the sewer. The baby alligator, fending for itself, must feed on anything it can … including the dead animals. Now, twelve years later, when several murders happen 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.
