Alligator (Collector’s Edition) chomps 4K UHD in February

There really was a time when there would be ads in the back of comic books offering to mail you a live baby alligator to raise at home. While this seems like a cool idea, the alligator grew fast. And then what was a kid supposed to do with it? Most disturbed mothers tossed the toothy reptile into the toilet and flushed it away like a dead goldfish. What happens when they get into the sewer system? That’s what Alligator is all about. This drive-in giant monster staple gives a fierce account of a reptile that isn’t happy just eating whatever gets dumped down the drain. The movie stars Robert Forster as the hunter who has to go into a stinky world to protect the people of Chicago. The fans of the film will get to see even more of the subterranean world since Scream Factory is releasing Alligator (Collector’s Edition) that will include the film on 4K UHD and Blu-ray. This is one of the best of the nature gone crazy films from the 20th Century. Here’s the press release from Screen Factory:

The Alligator Army Open Thread, Vol. CXLVI

That was a pretty neat and tidy coaching search, huh?. Fun (?) fact: I didn’t want to write up a hot board for what became the hiring of Billy Napier, because I think those are mostly useless unless the writer has some inside information to impart — like the tidbits about post-Todd Grantham firing defensive coordinator candidates having met with Florida that some reporters dropped into those hot boards a month ago when everything was different — to the masses. If anything, I was going to put together a hot board of hot boards — The Hot Board Matrix — and both point to how predictable this search was likely to be and to the lack of any candidates that could be construed as front-runners other than Napier himself.

Black and White and Red All Over

The original fabrics can be found here: and I have manipulated the colours by making them truly black and white and then inverting the colour. The darker versions were used in the black columns and the lighter ones in the white columns. No disrespect was intended for the original designers of the fabrics or the companies producing them. My embellishment with the alligator is my attempt at humour.
