Delta Heat is a 1992 film directed by Michael Fischa and written by Sam A. Scribner. The buddy police film was shot in New Orleans, Louisiana.[2] The screenplay was originally written by Bruce Akiyama to be a television pilot, commissioned by Sawmill Entertainment, but after producer Richard L. Albert made The Forbidden Dance, he decided to hire writer Sam Scribner to expand the script to feature film length. During production, producer Albert spent six hours in the bayous north of New Orleans convincing alligator hunter Bob Raymond to catch 40 alligators which appear in the final scene.


A Los Angeles Police Officer (Edwards) investigates the death of his partner in the swamps of Louisiana. He enlists the help of an ex-cop (Henriksen) who lost his hand to an alligator years before.
