Lisa (Sian Altman) is about to get married. She’s gathered all her friends for a fairy tale weekend away at a mansion to prepare for the celebrations. However, something is lurking in the grounds and before they know it, a giant crocodile has set itself upon the wedding party as one by one the guests are picked off by the reptilian intruder.
Obviously, her day is ruined, but Lisa, her husband to be Charlie (George Nettleton) and their friend Dylan (Mark Haldor) are not letting the croc get away with devouring their loved ones. So, it’s time to put the proceedings in order.
Croc! or Croc Vengeance in some territories is a very low budget horror movie that seems to know what it is and offers little else. Shot in the English countryside, Croc! is an example of what can happen when an audience will just watch anything.
You know exactly what you’re getting into when you watch a movie like Croc! Although it seems that although the filmmakers seem to know its audience. However, that doesn’t mean that they don’t still try and make something passable. It’s just a pity that they didn’t get there.
There are many questions that are raised by this British indie horror although the one that you may already know is why you are watching it in the first place. However, questions such as ‘where did the croc come from?’ ‘How is a badly rendered CGI crocodile able to sneak up on people so easily?’ and ‘Why did they buy Jason Mamoa from Wish?’ are never answered. Although that does seem to be part of the fun of watching a horror movie, even if it did have a higher budget and recognisable cast.
Croc is not reinventing the wheel and the audience knows it as well as the cast and crew. There are attempts at drama such as a vicar having a crisis of faith and an infidelity, but the audience knows that it’s all filler until the next kill.
Perhaps don’t buy Croc! at full price when it becomes available, or even when it drops to half price. Just be safe in the knowledge that one day you may find it on a bad horror channel and the British film industry is alive and well.
