Gator Bait follows Desiree (Playboy  “Playmate of the Year” Claudia Jennings) who lives deep in the swamp with her family and hunts Gators and deadly snakes for food and fun. Ben Bracken (Ben Sebastian) and Deputy Billy (Clyde Ventura) want to force Desiree into having sex with them. They try and catch her in act of poaching gators so they can blackmail her.  Ben not so sure the plan with work, because when his older brother tried to rape Desiree, she cut his balls off. The plan fails and while Desiree is escaping Billy accidentally shoots Ben and sinks his Dad’s new boat. Billy to stay out of trouble tells his father, Sheriff Joe Bob Thomas (Bill Thurman) that Desiree killed Ben and sank the boat. The Sheriff  enlists Daddy Bracken and his other two boys to find Desiree is the swamp.

Desiree wears a burlap outfit, she kind of falls out of it from time to time, but never do we see the hero of the movie nude. That’s left to her little sister. The movie is violent and all the men are mean or spineless. Not sure how it got to be called a classic of any kind.

Watch it if you like low-budget sleazy movies (that’s why I watched it)—-03/10
