NDMD 11 news station is broadcasting on the upcoming events. News comes in that a local farmer, Jack Straw, has unearthed a prehistoric skull and is fast to respond to the find. Sammy, the local news commentator, makes a call to her boyfriend, Mathew Debrie. Mathew, a recently graduated Paleontologist, is quick on the scene. As he slowly polishes off the dirt, he is amazed to find that it is the skull of a monstrous Crocodylus, a Nile crocodile whose only evident existence was thought to be deep in the African continent.
Mathew calls his close friend, Dr. David Williams, a fellow Harvard student, who takes an immediate flight from New York to Pleasant Creek. On his arrival all hell breaks loose as a young boy was savagely taken by a gator while he was fishing in the lake. A tooth lodged in the child’s buoyancy vest confirms a reptile but this is no GATOR ATTACK.
Crocodylus will release on November 15, 2017. The Creature Feature Horror production is produced by Stained Glass Eye Entertainment.
The Crocodylus trailer is full of mystery and suspense. After receiving a fishing rod as a Birthday gift, a young boy goes out fishing with it. This turns into a terror trip, there is something deadly that stalks the lake. Given the title of the movie, I assume it’s a crocodile.
The trailer is minimal in its delivery and this is a good thing. It still produces an eerie vibe to it. Next, the clips of people panicking are backed with a dramatic theatrical score. This is a unique music heard in killer crocodile, alligator, and shark movies. The cinematography looks up close and personal, and it works for this film.
Creature Features are fun productions, and almost anything is possible with this theme. Humongous, man-eating crocodiles taking over quiet towns is an exciting pitch. However, this idea has traveled many times in Horror cinema so it looks familiar. Likewise, the blandness of the trailer is enough to stir up intrigue.
