saw this yesterday. what a fall off for Tobe Hooper the director of Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

this is one of the mose cliche'd, generic 'teenagers-in-trouble' films ever made...

there's the two loved-up teens, the token goofy prankster, a bunch of nondescript other ones who might as well have "waiting to be eaten" written on their foreheads....then of course the obligatory tale of an old local monster legend around a campfire, at which point someone comes out of the darkeness and scares everyone, but of course it's the prankster guy...lol what a joker.

the "crocodile" is less convincing than a sock puppet. it just looks like some kind of computer animation...minus the animation. it looks like a disinterested piece of tree bark. and the end sequence where a baby crocodile hatches out of its egg in the girl's hands just before she's about to be eaten, so the mother croc carries it away thereby saving the girl from death, is too ridiculous for words.

any opinions?

I have always held out a glimmer of hope that Tobe Hooper has at least one more great, classic film in him.  But with every single new film that he comes out with, my hope quickly diminishes.

Yeah  I think with Crocodile his credibility could be over, as a film maker.

The Crocodile movies were pretty bad (yes, there's more than one), but Hooper only directed the first one.  By the way it was released in 2000, not 2006.

I think he did a pretty good job with Mortuary (2005), which was a SciFi original.

His next project is Stephen King's  "From a Buick 8".

Let's face it, the man has never matched TCM.

I actually like Hooper despite TCM.  Eaten Alive, Poltergeist, Lifeforce, The Funhouse, etc.  The guy used to be a good director.  I tried watching Mortuary and I couldn't make it past the first half hour or so.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
