รีวิวหนังสัตว์ขย้ำ หม่ำมนุษย์ : Crocodile (2000)
Crocodile (2000) Most movie buffs recall their first R-rated movie experience, and regardless of the movie’s actual quality, the experience is usually awesome. Mine reminds me of Emma Stone’s character in Zombieland. She makes a comment that her first R-rated flick was Anaconda (check out my review from week 2 if you haven’t yet), and the fact that it was R-rated makes it awesome enough; the quality of the film matters little.
Crocodile holds the distinct honour of being the first R-rated film I ever watched
, and twelve years later, I’m re-visiting this killer creature feature. I think this movie might be part of the reason low-budget killer animal films are an odd passion of mine.
A group of colourful college students go to a swampy lake for a spring break getaway on a tiny houseboat. One of the girls shows her bare ass to the camera before the opening credits even conclude: a clear indicator of what audience is being targeted. Before I go any further with the plot summary, I have to comment on both the lake and the houseboat.
The lake is one of the nastiest looking lakes I’ve ever seen in one of these animal amok movies. I don’t know where they filmed this movie, but I think they used at least three different locations, because there are aerial shots where the lake looks long and deep and surrounded by pine trees, then there are shots on the lake where it looks fairly sparse with trees and the water’s murky, and then when it’s close to shore (which is most of the time), it looks like a desert, with dusty shores, cactuses, green water no more than knee-deep, and more mud than water! It’s wildly inconsistent, but I’m just going to assume it’s a very large lake spanning multiple sub-environments.
As for the houseboat, it has to be the smallest houseboat I’ve ever seen. There’s one room and a deck above. That’s it. It’s an insignificant detail, but it just stood out to me as being very peculiar. ดูหนังออนไลน์
