Supergator is a 2007 horror film from Roger Corman starring Brad Johnson and Kelly McGillis. The music was by Damon Ebner.

Background[edit]

After Corman produced Dinocroc in 2004, he wanted to create a sequel to be named Dinocroc 2. However, Sci-Fi Channel turned down the project after claiming that sequels did not do well for them.[1] Corman decided to go ahead with the project, but under the name Supergator.[2]

Plot[edit]

Professor Scott Kinney is an American geologist monitoring a local volcano when the Supergator, a Deinosuchus recreated from fossilized, preserved DNA escapes from a secret bio-engineering research center/laboratory. Along the way, it eats thirteen people, including two lovers, three drunken teens, three models, two tourists and a fisherman. It also eats Alexandra Stevens and Ryan Houston.

Kinney joins forces with another scientist, Kim Taft, and a Texan alligator hunter. They pursue the monster as it heads down river intent on destroying a luxurious resort packed with hundreds of tourists. Conventional weapons have no effect on it at all and Kim is eaten, so they, with the help of Carla, plan a trap for it using a fake volcano. They lure him on to it, with the Texan alligator hunter as live bait. The Supergator gets him and is blown up with poisonous gas, strong flames and a shotgun.
