The Flood | Louis Mandylor Interview on CGI Alligators, Water, and Filming in Thailand

Louis Mandylor in The Flood

Louis Mandylor wanted projects that’ll push the envelope of his acting skills. With The Flood that came along, he got to work with familiar friends with director Brandon Slagle and actor Casper Van Dien and new challenges with CGI alligators and tons of water.

The Flood stars Van Dien (Starship Troopers, Alita: Battle Angel), Nicky Whelan (Hall Pass, Halloween II), and Mandylor (The Debt Collector, Rambo: Last Blood). Slagle (Frost, The Dawn) directed the movie from the screenplay co-written by Chad Law (Section 8, Close Range) and Josh Ridgeway (The Sector, Howlers).

Here is the official 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.
