ALLIGATOR
1980, British Lion-Columbia Distributors, 92 min, USA, Dir: Lewis Teague

Twelve years after a baby alligator is flushed down the toilet, it grows to mammoth size in the city sewer system (thanks to a diet of hormonally enhanced animals improperly disposed of by a local research facility). When bodies start popping up, Chicago detective Robert Forster is the first - and only - authority figure to grasp the reality of what is happening. Screenplay by John Sayles.
