From The Press Release
Code Red, in association with Kino Lorber, will reissue on Blu-ray Sergio Martino’s The Great Alligator (1979), starring Barbara Bach, Claudio Cassinelli, Mel Ferrer, Romano Puppo, and Fabrizia Castagnoli. The release will be available for purchase on February 2.
Synopsis: Meaner than Jaws… More bloodthirsty than Piranha… Here comes The Great Alligator, a blood-soaked tale of jungle greed and just desserts from cult director Sergio Martino (Torso). Barbara Bach (The Unseen, The Spy Who Loved Me) and Claudio Cassinelli (Screamers, Slave of the Cannibal God, Hands of Steel) head into the steamy jungles of Southeast Asia where construction for an exclusive resort is treading onto territory that the Kuma natives hold sacred… and their alligator god Kroona takes personally. Paradise turns into an unrelenting nightmare in this outrageous giant creature feast also starring Mel Ferrer (The Visitor, Eaten Alive), Richard Johnson (The Haunting, Beyond the Door), Bobby Rhodes (Demons, Demons 2), Romano Puppo (After the Fall of New York, Street Law) and child actress Silvia Collatina (Murderock), with a screenplay co-written by the legendary Ernesto Gastaldi (All the Colors of the Dark, The Grand Duel) and a pounding score by the great Stelvio Cipriani (Bay of Blood, Tentacles). Find out who lives and who dies in this essential ’70s shocker, now remastered from the original negative for the first time in HD!
