Verdict on Croc!

Characters

Lisa is the bride-to-be who has been planning her wedding for years, this is meant to be her dream wedding with friends and family. She is delighted to have her father attending and when things start to spiral out of control, she wants to see everyone safe.

Dylan is Lisa’s father who has a reputation among Lisa’s friends. However, he is an expert on animal behaviour and uses his skills to keep some of his friends safe and deal with the crocodile.

Charlie is the groom and finds himself drawn to other women quite quickly. He sees the first attack but can’t explain why, as he was going against his bride.

In the supporting characters, we have friends and family who have different reactions to the crocodile and the personal problems they are facing.

Performances

Sian Altman is the lead in the movie, along with Mark Haldor. The two are strong enough without taking the film by storm or reaching the bonkers levels the Lake Placid cast did. A lot of the movie is about bigger reactions to the crocodile or the aftermath of the attacks.

Story

The story follows family and friends that come together for a wedding, only for them to find themselves being attacked by killer crocodiles. It sees the group getting split up and needing to figure out how to survive and escape the threat.

In a typical creature feature-styled story, we see the group of survivors needing to band together against a threat. It uses the unusual location for a crocodile to be, to keep it needing to be human factors needed to fight back. Everything is a lot of fun with the story, never taking too much serious about how things unfold.

Themes

Croc! Is a creature feature horror that takes us to a Tudor mansion where a crocodile invades a wedding. There is plenty of crocodile munching down on humans, which are all very similar, often using the reactions to add to the horror. This location gives us a remote location that isn’t used to defend against wild animals.

Final Thoughts Croc! Is a blast creature feature.
