A young woman goes searching for her father, and when she finds him, has to protect him from a congregation of alligators.
This is a nice, taught and well-paced film with no pretensions; it just wants to scare the piss out of you. There are several breath-holding scenes along with some good shocks and it builds on the story as it goes very nicely. I was really impressed by Kaya and how well she maintained her character’s level of resolve.
I did think that people shrugged off some really nasty injuries too easily and some scenes were a little too telegraphed, but this is a minor gripe.
I highly recommend this as a tight little thriller. Be sure to hit the loo before you go in. No scenes after the credits roll, so feel free to crawl out once they start rolling.
Flytrap rating: 7.5/10
