Director Lewis Teague had audiences looking behind their backs for 1980's Alligator, presented in a 4K restoration.
A baby alligator is flushed down a toilet and survives by eating discarded lab animals that have been injected with growth hormones. The now gigantic animal escapes the city sewers and goes on a rampage, pursued by a cop and a big-game hunter.
Praised by critics for its satirizing of genre cliches, Alligator delivers the bloody goods while aware of its own zaniness.
