This crazy, erotic sci-fi romp tells the story of a top secret military experiment that turns burly soldiers into sexy nymphomaniac babes who turn into gators when they reach orgasm! The film stars Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and scream queen Brinke Stevens who reveals her finest assets. A cult classic ripe for rediscovery, Repligator offers non-stop fun and plenty of topless babes.
What we got here looks and come across just like those late night HBO movies from back in the day, only the soft core dry humping isn’t included. And that really is a shame because a movie like this needs all the dry humping and women making sex noises that it can get. Why you ask? That is because the rest is rather awful. It has a few funny moments and you even see a few familiar horror favorites, but that is about it for Repligator. But let us give the movie a little credit, because as bad as it is it has hit DVD twice and even had a special VHS release from Massacre Video. But the movie on its own just seems flat.
Some have praises the film for its throwback feel to really old school science fiction films or classic Roger Corman releases and I can sort of see that too. I just don’t think the quality is here and the end results are harmless, but they are also very forgettable. Some people find these types of films so bad that they are good, I’m not sure I’d agree in this case. Still, it’s different strokes for different folks.
