Mega Python vs. Gatoroid is a 2011 American monster film by The Asylum, directed by Mary Lambert, and starring pop singers Debbie Gibson and Tiffany.
A group of animal activists, consisting of Doctor Nikki Riley (Debbie Gibson), Gia (Arden Cho) and Ben (Patrick Hancock), break into a house and steal dozens of exotic pythons before setting them free into the Florida Everglades.
Their actions inadvertently cause the snakes to grow into alarming sizes and threaten the ecosystem, as they kill over seventy-two alligators in a matter of days. Due to the threat of the invasive species, Park Ranger Terry O’Hara (Tiffany) issues permits to the local hunters to exterminate the pythons – much to Nikki’s dismay. However, the hunters themselves – including Terry’s fiancé Justin (Carey Van Dyke) – are quickly eliminated by the giant snakes.
Vowing to avenge her fiancé’s death, Terry and Angie (Kathryn Joosten) take boxes of anabolic steroids from Angie’s grandson Manny (Chris Neville) and inject them into dead chickens before feeding them to alligators.
Several months later, Terry meets Doctor Diego Ortiz (A Martinez), who warns her that an all-out war between the giant pythons and the mutated alligators in the Everglades has begun. Meanwhile, former Monkees drummer/singer Mickey Dolenz appears as himself…
“Oh, yeah, the movie: seen better, seen worse. Big snakes, big gators, blah, blah, blah. Actor A Martinez, a fixture in 70’s cop shows, looks like he might be wondering where the payroll line is. He spends most of his time in the movie looking irritated. Hey, Mr. Martinez, you should see how the rest of us on THIS side of the camera are looking; I’ll show ya irritated!” Juggernaut of Stupidity
“Overall, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid is a boat load of fun. It’s completely cheesy, sassy and knows exactly who its audience is and caters specifically to them. If you like your cheese, this is totally for you and is extra special goodness for folks of the Tiffany/Debbie Gibson rivalry generation” Movie Moxie blog
