Crocodile is a 2000 American horror film, directed by Tobe Hooper and released direct-to-video on 26 December 2000. It was followed by a sequel, Crocodile 2: Death Swamp, released in 2002.


A group of friends including Brady Turner, Claire and Duncan McKay go out on a boat trip on a lake in Southern California, but their joyful weekend turns into horror, when a giant killer crocodile called Flat Dog searching for its stolen eggs, picks off anyone who gets in its way. Can they all escape in one piece or will they slowly and painfully fall to the mammoth reptile.

Critical ReceptionEdit

AllMovie panned the film, in particular its special effects.


  • When Brady and Claire are making out in the woods, Brady puts his hands around Claire's neck, but in the next shot Brady's hands are at Claire's waist.
  • In the close-up of the old man talking and flying in the helicopter, the paintwork on the helicopter is dull green. When the helicopter lands, it is a brightly shining color and looks waxed.
  • Claire, Brady and Duncan jump from a blazing boat, but there are no flames by the time they get to dry land.
  • Several times through the film Flat Dog changes size.
  • When they are attacked on the boat, Claire jumps with her book bag, she forgets it in the water, but a few scenes later, she is carrying it.
  • In the first scene, the guys in the car have the front windshield sprayed with water, but in the next shot, the windshield is dry, then it is sprayed again for the first time; then it looks like the windshield wipers had been turned on, but the characters were not shown doing that.
  • It was shot at the same time as Blood Surf.
