It lives 50 feet beneath the city. It's 36 feet long. It weighs 2,000 pounds...and it's mad...! Alligator, the frightening movie with a sense of humor, comes to DVD for the first time ever this September. Veteran screenwriter/director John Sayles' (Lone Star) script* finds the perfect blend of comedy and horror, making this an entertaining romp through the sewers of Chicago. With newly re-mastered picture and audio, the DVD also features an on-camera interview with John Sayles and audio commentary with the cast and crew.

Twelve years ago two incidents occurred which bore no similarity until now. After returning from their Florida vacation, the Kendal family decided their pet baby alligator was too much of a nuisance and flushed him down the toilet. At the same time, Slade Laboratories was conducting secret hormonal experiments with animals and the carcasses were disposed of in the city sewer. The baby alligator fed on the dead dogs... and after twelve years its body chemistry took on grotesque mutations. When several brutal murders are discovered, David Madison (Robert Forster) is put on the case to find the so-called Jack-the-Ripper killer. But this is no human psychopath ? it is a ravaging animal-turned-monster bent on destroying everything in its wake
