Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past.
Not to diminish its brilliance, but this trailer is worth watching simply to hear Lon Chaney yell, “I’ll kill you alligator man!”
It’s suspense done only the way crappy B-movies from the 50s could achieve. What horrid monster has come from the depths of a science lab in deepest Louisiana? Why is a young woman convinced her husband has been turned into a scaly killer? Why does Lon Chaney have that hook?
All answers will be revealed in stunning black and white! Why they haven’t remade this is beyond me.
Think you know what it is? Check the trailer out for yourself:
