Alligator II: The Mutation (1991)

Joseph Bologna stars as night shift cop David Hodges in what’s basically a PG-13 remake of the original Alligator movie (1980).

Deep in the sewers beneath the city of Regent Park, a baby alligator feeds on the experimental animals discarded by Future Chemicals Corporation. Nourished by toxic growth hormones and other mutating chemicals, the gator grows immense in size and voracious in appetite.

Bologna is good, and so are Richard Lynch as knife-throwing Cajun gator hunter Hawk Hawkins, and Steve Railsback as Vinnie Brown, a killer real-estate developer.

The giant gator attack-fest is OK but too much time is spent on the rookie cop and his new love interest.

Also with Brock Peters as police chief Speed; Dee Wallace-Stone as Hodges’ lab technician wife; Bill Daily from I Dream of Jeannie as the corrupt mayor; soapie star Holly Gagnier; Woody Brown, and Professor Tanaka (as a wrestler called Tokyo Joe).

The film was made for ABC-TV but was picked up for theatrical distribution by New Line.
