'Gatorcane' tells the heroic tale of one man's quest to save the residents of Florida as he tries to figure out why alligators are attacking from above. The trailer is produced by Sentinel Studios.
The 'Sharknado' inspired 'Gatorcane' is "genius," according to an award-winning journalist based in Phoenix.
And she's only seen the trailer.
In a video clip on RightThisMinute.com, anchor Gayle Bass shows off the Orlando Sentinel original production 'Gatorcane' to her fellow anchors. She screens several clips, including a shot of alligators falling on the University of Florida football stadium better known as The Swamp.
"I think this is genius," says Bass.
The hosts of the web-based show go on to compare and contrast the dangers between a real gatorcane and a real sharknado.
"The main thing that makes a gatorcane more realistic is that gators can live on land and out of water," one of the hosts says. "Once they are dropped on the residents of Florida they can maneuver and go eat people. Whereas a shark, they are just stuck on the ground."
She's right, of course. Sharks on land with their little flippers are about as useless as a Tyrannosaurus rex in a chin-up contest.
What do you think? What's more terrifying? A 'Sharknado" or a "Gatorcane"?
In other 'Gatorcane' news, Alabama's most-visited news website AL.com also featured the Orlando Sentinel's animal/natural-disaster film. (Full disclosure: I worked for The Huntsville Times for almost three years.)
