Ragin' Cajun Redneck Gators 2013 5 out of 10
What a great title for a cheesy Syfy channel movie. Add in the fact that the description for the movie is Toxic Moonshine turns a bunch of gators into killing machines.....Need I say more? It had all the ingredients to be a great bad movie. The bad shine even turns the people into gators about halfway through the movie which lends itself to what should have been a ton of chessy fun.
Somehow it just wasn't as fun as it could have been. I mean the toxic moonshine mutated gators were actually not that large or scary---so it mostly played about like a normal killer gator movie. Then the movie had so much potential when somehow the people that were either bite by a gator or ate the toxic moonshine gator meet started turning into gators. The transformation from people to gators was too quick and I think they wasted the potential for a hilarious spin, which would have been a bunch of toxic mutated gator people running around like infected zombies trying to bite people with their gator teeth. That would have been much more fun to see. Anyway it was decent for a killer gator movie...but it could have been so much more if they had just fully embraced the cheesy storyline and taken it in a different direction. There are still things to like about the movie like the silly Romeo and Juliet sub plot between a boy and girl from two warring hillbilly clans. The duel between the 2 heads of the clans at the end that is like a gun battle wild west style in the middle of the street (that features a guy with a gun vs a guy turned gators shooting spines out of his back). The movie counts on the love of Duck Dynasty type folks that are really big on TV right now. I once saw a Scooby Doo episode that did this story much better. Anyway if you like killer gator movies enjoy.
