The following text is from the DVD cover:
“Imagine all the fury of a prehistoric carnivore combined with the ferocity of the largest crocodile known to man and you have the makings of nonstop terror. Run for your life as Gereco Corporation’s experiment to manipulate a rapid-growth hormone gets out of control, and a ravenous monster gets out of its cage. Now the residents of the once-peaceful Grant’s Lake have only the talents of a crude Australian reptile hunter, the short-handed local sheriff, his daughter the animal control expert, and her boyfriend, to save them from the insatiable jaws of a beastly feeding frenzy.”
DinoCroc is rated R for some creature violence/gore and language.
If you see a DVD with “Roger Corman” emblazoned across the cover and the title of the film is “Dinocroc”, you’re probably not expecting Shakespeare. And you’d be entirely correct. Dinocroc is exactly what you would expect it to be a bad B-movie monster flick with cheesy special effects, mediocre acting, and a silly plot. As long as you’re expecting that, then Dinocroc can be a guilty B-movie pleasure that you can laugh at and enjoy while reveling in the sheer cheesiness of it all.
Dinocroc has a fun by-the-book concept. Scientists revive an extinct species, it breaks out of a lab and begins terrorizing a small town. There’s nothing original about it, but it’s the fast food of B-movie concepts it’s cheap, fun, and you know what you’re getting. The Dinocroc monster looks terrible. Kids on home computers could probably create a better monster. The thing doesn’t even swim like a crocodile. It actually dog paddles. But all that’s really irrelevant. It’s B-Movie goodness.
I’d recommend Dinocroc to anyone that likes cheesy monster movies or anyone that watches silly B-Movies on the Sci Fi Channel. This one will be right up your alley.
