Directed by Alexandre Aja, as Hurricane Wendy, a category 5, bears down on Florida, Dave, played by Barry Pepper, finds himself in Coral Lake trying to board up his old family home. He’s injured by a giant gator that got into the basement through an overflow drain. His daughter Haley, played by Kaya Scodelairo, comes to find him, and the two are isolated by the rising waters and swarming reptiles. There are alligator point of view shots of thrashing legs, deadly bites, hairsbreadth escapes, and a mounting body count.

I had the opportunity to sit down with talented producers Sam Raimi and Craig Flores during a press day at the LA ZOO (Los Angeles Zoo).

Let’s check it out why they decided to make this film, why Kaya was perfect for the role, the toughest part, and more.
