When a giant alligator begins randomly killing college students during Spring Break, a local sheriff (Joe Lando) partners with a local alligator expert (Zoe Bell) as they attempt to stop the killings before any more die.


Little does anyone know, the attacks are not as random as they seem — but actually, something more sinister seems to be at play…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

“A couple of lame twists here and there can’t do much to save the uninspired plot from dragging itself until the godawful ending. The banal directing, the cheap editing and cinematography, the terrible CGI… Freshwater fails in all departments, including the unfitting piano score and the amateurish, stilted acting…” Should I Watch It

“There was no horror, no tension and no gore bar a plastic looking arm that looked like and floated like it was made of….well, plastic. There was appalling, grating piano music throughout the entire film and the story was laughable. It has none of the charm or allure of cheap late night killer croc/shark/octopus etc. films on the Sci Fi channel.” Fallen
