Croc! will be released by Uncork’d Entertainment on DVD and Digital on October 4, 2022. Rent or buy via Amazon Prime

Croc! Is another highly entertaining horror film from the Jagged Edge production team,” said Keith Leopard, the President of Uncork’d Entertainment. “Like Jagged Edge’s recent Kingdom of the Dinosaurs, which we released in September, it’s absolutely super fun!”.

“This movie is ridiculous and I mean that in a nice way. There are just times that you want to watch crocodiles chomp down on the entire wedding party and this delivers exactly that. Man, everyone is losing the deposit on their tux rentals. Of course the bride fights in her wedding dress.” B&S About Movies

“There are attempts at drama such as a vicar having a crisis of faith and infidelity, but the audience knows that it’s all filler until the next kill. Perhaps don’t buy Croc! at full price when it becomes available, or even when it drops to half price.” Battle Royale with Cheese

“Director Paul W. Franklin puts our group into plenty of scary scenarios although it has to be said that the amount of people who fall over and get eaten is quite ridiculous […] It’s not perfect but it will satisfy some animal attack horror fans, and prove relatively entertaining.” Bloody Flicks

Croc! is almost always ridiculous when any rational thinking is applied to the action as it unfolds. For example, this crocodile can open swimming pool doors. The many deaths in the jaws of the beast are rarely, if ever convincing. And almost all of the hapless victims stumble to eye level with the CGI Croc! before they are eaten.” Brit Flicks

“Britain’s answer to American giant Asylum has churned out yet another low-budget, but oddly entertaining, tale of carnage. Not one for those that need their characters layered and plot ironclad and free of holes, with the right frame and mind and crowd, Croc! has the potential to be a silly but fun way to waste eighty minutes.” 2 out of 5, The Hollywood News

“True, the finale is disappointingly tame, and yes, some of those kills get quite repetitive. But, at a sleek 80 minutes, the film never outstays its welcome. With its tongue planted firmly in its cheek, even the stiff acting and weird dialogue (taking in theological theory alongside all that croc-talk) is kind of fun.” Horror DNA

Likeable, silly, low-budget British schlock […] It slightly resembles that [REC] sequel set at a posh wedding – inevitably, the bride goes into bloody action still wearing her white dress and veil – but there’s also a streak of ladette comedy of embarrassment.  But mostly it’s about a SyFy Channel-standard computer effect chomping on bloody limbs.” The Kim Newman Web Site

“With its hilariously gratuitous sex scenes, ropey CGI, highly questionable human behaviours, and endless asides on the messy quagmire of married life (which the featured creature improbably embodies), Croc! unapologetically emerges from the B-movie swamp. Even the title is a pun on the film’s sh*t status.” Projected Figures

“While it lacks the kaiju-sized thrills of Chinese films like Crocodile Island or the gore and outrageous plotting of Italian films such as Great Alligator River and Killer Crocodile, Croc! Is an enjoyable bit of monster mayhem. It’s also good to see some of Jeffrey’s films, which are frequently exploitation adjacent, start to deliver content that matches their plotting.” 3.5/5, Voices from the Beyond
