Mega Python Vs Gatoroid
After a species of giant python invades the everglades, park rangers breed mutant alligators to counter the threat. Soon, the battle between massive pythons and enormous gators threatens all of Florida.
With a synopsis like the one above, you should already know that Mega Python Vs Gatoroid isn’t going to be a serious, or well produced film. Hell, even the films name should have given that away!
The funny thing is, I’m not sure what is worse, the acting or the special effects. Though I’m gonna go for the special effects.
But in all seriousness, you’re not going to be watching Mega Python Vs Gatoroid alone, or without a cold drink (or 2) in your hand. It’s the kind of film that you rent or buy and invite a few mates around and have a good laugh at.
The special effects are so bad that you can’t help but laugh, but the best bit is in the middle of the film, and you have to have grown up with some kind of infatuation with Tiffany.
In the middle of the film, 80’s pop sensations Tiffany and Debbie Gibson have a fight, rolling around, crashing into tables, smearing food all over each other, and then, inconceivably, they end up fighting in a lake. Then suddenly they both stop, look around and listen, and Tiffany says “I think we’re alone now,” pauses, and then “there doesn’t seem to be anyone around.”
Awards it won’t win, but Mega Python Vs Gatoroid could possibly garner a cult following.
