DinoCroc [DVD] [2004]

A groundbreaking scientific experiment yields an unstoppable killing machine with a taste for flesh in this cautionary tale of terror from visual effects artist-turned-director Kevin O'Neill and executive producer Roger Corman. When the Gereco Corporation begins experimenting with a revolutionary rapid-growth hormone, a nightmare is born. As prehistoric ferocity and scientific innovation come together to create a creature capable of unimaginable destruction, the peaceful residents of Grant Lake must rely on the skills of a brutish Australian reptile hunter and a rag-tag band of brave souls including the stressed-out local sheriff and the local animal control expert to destroy the creature and once again bring calm to the waters of their lakeside community.

Overview

Synopsis

DinoCroc
"It feeds on fear!" read the advertising tagline for this Roger Corman-produced shocker. What could be scarier than a rogue crocodile, except maybe a rogue dinosaur? How about a combination thereof -- a DinoCroc? Hoping to create a cheap alternative to expensive prescription medicines, the greedy Gereco Corporation genetically manipulates a small supply of DNA from a prehistoric creature called the Sarcosuchus. Suddenly revived and very hungry, this ancient "DinoCroc" kills indiscriminately (in some very gory scenes that border on the grotesquely hilarious), but has a special fondness for human flesh. Professional herpetologist and crocodile hunter Dick Sydney (Costas Mandylor) is brought in from Australia to stop the rampaging beast, with the grudging assistance of female scientist Paula Kennedy (Joanna Pacula) and the more willing cooperation of Sheriff Harper (Charles Napier) and his ever-imperiled daughter, Diane (Jane Longnecker). Along the way, the viewer is treated to gratuitous dollops of sex and bad language, which along with the excessive violence earned the film an R rating in its original form. The climax is right out of the movie Them, with a bit of urban legend-spinning thrown in. Filmed under the title PrimeEvil, DinoCroc was given a very, very limited theatrical release before it aired over the Sci-Fi Channel on April 24, 2004. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
