Bluray Cover for Severin Films' KILLER CROCODILE: Limited Edition
SEVERIN FILMS BRINGS FABRIZIO DE ANGELIS' EXPLOITATION CLASSIC TO BLU-RAY DISC!

It's been ages since I first experienced KILLER CROCODILE on a bootleg DVD, so you can imagine how happy I am to finally be able to upgrade! On September 24th, Severin Films brings this classic Italian creature feature to Blu-ray with a new 2K transfer, and lots of new extras! Plus, if you're one of the lucky 4,000 that snaps up the limited edition release, you get KILLER CROCODILE 2 as well! I cannot convey how excited I am for this title Vault Dwellers! To find out if you should share in my excitement (you totally should!) continue onward for a closer look!

KILLER CROCODILE (1989)

Synopsis: More than a decade after the Spielberg blockbuster, a dream team of shock maestros – including producer-turned-director Fabrizio De Angelis (DR. BUTCHER M.D., EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS), screenwriter Dardano Sacchetti (BAY OF BLOOD, DEMONS), gore guru Giannetto De Rossi (ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND) and Oscar-nominated composer Riz Ortolani (MONDO CANE, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST) – created one of the most ridiculously entertaining JAWS rip-offs in ItaloSleaze history!

When a humongous crocodile begins chomping on a tropical island community, a group of idealistic young environmentalists will clash with a crusty redneck hunter to destroy the monster reptile spawned by toxic waste. Richard Anthony Crenna (Roswell), Sherrie Rose (TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT), Ennio Girolami (GREAT WHITE) and Hollywood legend Van Johnson (THE CAINE MUTINY) star in this Crocsploitation classic!

Disc Specs:
Not Rated | Color | 94 minutes | Region A
