OK, this is a bad sign. I can’t even find a promotional poster nor nothing with the ‘stars’ of the movie and the name on it! Oh well, onwards and upwards.
Right, this is getting ridiculous. IMDb doesn’t even have a synopsis for this epic battle movie. Mr Corman, you’re really making me work here, and I’m not happy about it!
So *ahem* the movie is about a hot MILF in the middle of nowhere who is some sort of scientist on some island somewhere. They use some sort of growth ‘stuff’ (am I getting to technical?) to create a gigantic crocodile and an equally large alligator. And lo, Dinocroc and Supergator were born. Then escaped. But, more importantly, the hot MILF is none other than Delia Sheppard, Penthouse Pet from April 1988
I’m not even going to continue with a synopsis. Basically, two monsters rampage through a jungle, eating folk. The only way to kill them is to pit them against one another. Wait, haven’t I heard of something like this before?
This is, as you’d expect, this is a Syfy Channel exclusive. In other words: no one else would touch this with a ten foot barge pole. The only good thing going for this film is that the ‘stars’ of the movie make a quick appearance and are continually seen eating people.
The two creatures are, unfortunately, CGI but even for having zero budget they’re pretty well done. Not exactly Jurassic Park but, hey, waddya expect. Speaking of Jurassic Park, it would seem the sound men have done some *ahem* ‘liberal borrowing’ of sounds from said movie. Oh, and scenes. Big jeep pursued by one large reptilian beast. Coincidence? I think not.
The movie also features David Carradine in one of his last performances. His last performance being somewhat kinky and eventually snuffing him. So, it seems that if you’re famous your last movies are always your worst, so that you don’t go out with a bang.
There is some gore in the movie, but it’s all CGI’d and done pretty badly:
… but, hey, what can one expect from a Syfy original movie.
All the deaths are your usual ‘oh I’ll just stand here by the water here and get gulped’ or ‘I’ll just stand here, cover my face with my hands, and wait for the inevitable’.
All in all, not impressed. At least it didn’t take its self seriously, which is just as well really. It was OK, but it didn’t quite beat Megashark vs Giant Octopus for all out bizarreness…
