The Flood trailer: Casper Van Dien battles alligators in a flooded jail

Casper Van Dien and Nicky Whelan battle alligators in a flooded jail in the trailer for Brandon Slagle’s The Flood

Just yesterday, we shared the news that the “nature run amok” horror thriller The Flood is going to receive a theatrical, VOD, and digital release on July 14th, courtesy of Saban Films. With the release date so close, we knew a trailer would be available soon – we just didn’t expect it to be this soon! The trailer for The Flood is now online, and you can check it out in the embed above.

Directed by Brandon Slagle (Attack of the Unknown) from a screenplay by Chad Law (Daylight’s End) and Josh Ridgway (Howlers), this project could be described as “Crawl meets Assault on Precinct 13”. Here’s the synopsis: A horde of giant hungry alligators is unleashed on a group of in-transit prisoners and their guards after a massive hurricane floods Louisiana.

The film stars Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Nicky Whelan (Hall Pass), Louis Mandylor (Rambo: Last Blood), Devanny Pinn (Battle for Saipan), and Randy Wayne (Hellraiser: Judgment).

Daemon Hillin produced The Flood, with Amy Covell co-producing. The list of executive producers includes Mark Boot, Carolina Brasil, Matthew E. Chausse, Jordan Dykstra, Ryan Francis, Landon Gorman, Joseph Lanius, Kulthep Narula, Rachvin Narula, Joe Simpson, Ellen S. Wander, Simon Williams, and co-writer Chad Law. James Cullen Bressack is a co-executive producer, and so is Anselmo Martini.

I’m not sold on all of the moments of alligator action in the trailer for The Flood, but overall this looks to me like it could be an entertaining movie. I’ll gladly give it a chance and check it out in July.

In addition to Crawl, other alligator horror movies include Alligator (of course), Alligator II: The Mutation, The Great Alligator, Supergator, Dinocroc vs. Supergator, Jurassic Predator: Xtinction, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, and The Alligator People. Crocodiles get way more horror attention than alligators do: Black Water, Rogue, Eaten Alive, Lake Placid, Primeval, Croc, Crocodile, Killer Crocodile, Dinocroc, MegaShark vs. Crocosaurus, Crocodile Fangs, Supercroc, Dark Age, Blood Surf, etc.
