Link is from March 2005.

Could someone be trying to drum up interest in that godawful "Primeval" movie? Possibly?

Anyone remember that cheesy movie "Alligator" from the 80's where the family flushes the baby alligator down the toilet and it grows up in the sewer and then kills a bunch of people?

/didn't think so

Bah. This isn't about the stupid movie coming out. I'm the subby and was just checking out the website when I stumbled upon it. Had no clue about the movie until I read the Boobies. Checked it out. Yup. Looks stupid.

Got some facts wrong too. 20 feet long, not 30. Right at 2,000 pounds too. Sue me. I'm hungover.

Why would hundreds of people continue to go in a river where such a fearsome killer lived? Are they morons? Oh wait, it's in Africa.

I heard that croc has been killed since by soldiers

Not your fault. I saw the ad today during the games and, wondering what "serial killer" it was based on, went to the internet. The movie website makes it sound like a great slasher flick.

The IMDB page... not so much.

So do they find him? How does it end?

The sign by the river said 'Camp Crystal lake', so maybe that explains it.

In fact, the articles I have read seem to suggest that he has not been captured or killed. They say he's fairly crafty...heh ...kind of makes me laugh a little bit...they tried catching him with a live goat and later a dead cow but he seems to like the taste of human flesh much, much more...less fur, maybe?

I KNOW the movie will suck. There is no way it can be at all good.

But, interesting that this giant thing keeps feasting on fisherman and swimmers...

buttless_pants I remember that damn thing. I was about 7 and my big brother came home from the theater and told me about it over and over until I was f'n terrified.

I farking knew it, they're plotting against us, you could see it in their eyes. I mean Steve Irwin is dead, it's the perfect time to strike. I just hope they aren't in it with the alligators too, God save us.

and no steve irwin to save us

I totally remember that movie. The scene that really sticks out is when the gator gets into a swimming pool, and meanwhile, these kids at a party blindfold another kid and push him off the diving board.

/grew up with a pool in my backyard.
//wouldn't swim at night for a long time after seeing the movie.

Not a single Crikey to be seen

Hell, I'm 32 and I still check for gators before jumping in a backyard pool.

The same way that I check subways for dachsunds dressed as rats after seeing "Deadly Eyes" so many damn times on HBO.

I remember that movie. Some company was putting steroid infested dead animals down there and the alliagtor was feeding off of them, so it got to be huge and pissed off, got out of the sewers and starting killing people. I think I've seen that movie several times. Not sure why, just have.

Maybe instead of trying to kill the crocodile, they should stay away from it and leave it alone. It's only doing what it's been born to do. Should have a sign that says, "Get off my sand bar!"
 
2007-01-02 09:18:44 AM
I'm kinda wondering why this ended up in the tech section. I think Fark needs a "wildlife" tag where all the stories of people living with thousands of dead animals and stories like this would end up.

Why would hundreds of people continue to use roads where hundreds constantly die?

Right there with you man. I had that exact same experience.

FTA: Barr's credentials include a doctorate in biology and the distinction of being the only researcher to have bagged all 23 species of crocodilians.

I must still be half asleep as I read that as 'banged' not 'bagged' the first time.

If I know my comic books, this is the point where Steve Irwin will rise from his grave to save us. The gods see that we have no chance without him.

Repent now!
For the time of the Second Coming of Irwin is upon us!
