Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Two bored young practical jokers inadvertently scare up a heap of trouble in their backwater Mississippi town when they re-create the local myth, Gator Face, a swamp creature said to be half alligator and half human. Their little prank proves so effective that soon the town is swamped with media types. But things become serious when the National Guard begins combing the swamps and the real Gator Face shows up.
