Herpetophobia is an irrational fear of reptiles, has been explored in a lot of horror films/monster films in the past, Anaconda and Python being two of my favorites. Another title came to mind while watching this trailer; Lake Placid.
Of those, Lake Placid being the only one that specifically focused on an alligator. Considering it is wrongly considered to be a flop by the majority. This film will be a bold attempt, and I personally can’t wait to see if they can pull something off.
Setting this story in the middle of a hurricane situation gives this a completely different dynamic, and one that seems like something out of a dream.
It’s set for a July 12th release.
