CORMAN'S PREHISTORIC CROC

Just as Godzilla will be celebrating his 50th anniversary in 2004 so to will another B-movie icon as this year marks director/producer Roger Corman?s 50th year in the film biz. What better way for a man who has given us such cult hits as the original Little Shop of Horrors, Attack of the Crab Monsters, Death Race 2000, Humanoids From The Deep, the Carnosaur franchise, and over 300 other movies to mark his half century in film than by producing a motion picture called Dinocroc? Yes, it is another big killer crocodile movie of which there have been quite a few cluttering up video store shelves with their usual crappiness in recent years. However, this one is based around a gigantic prehistoric crocodile, referred to as a ?Supercroc? by paleontologists, resurrected in modern times that proceeds to go on a rampage terrorizing a small town. The average ?Supercroc? could grow up to 40 feet in length, the head alone averaged 6 feet, and weighed an average of 8 metric tons so if the special effects are up to par it should be quite an intimidating sight in the movie. Corman himself came up with the idea for the movie and is said to be quite high on the flick.

Among the recognizable faces in the movie that could make for potential croc food are Costas ?I was in that horrible Fist of the North Star movie but don?t hold it against me? Mandylor, Joanna ?I?ve done love scenes with Julian Sands so working with a gigantic reptile is actually a step up? Pacula, and veteran b-movie actor Charles Napier as the local Sheriff. I think it is pretty safe to say that Napier is going to get devoured because unless the Sheriff role in a movie such as this is played by one of the top two stars the Sheriff character almost always ends up being dead meat. First time director Damian Akhavi directs from a script written by Frances Doel, who previously wrote Corman?s Raptor which itself was little more than a movie put together by recycling footage from the Carnosaur movies.

One more reason that the odds are against Dinocroc being a fun creature feature is the fact that the Sci-Fi Channel has picked up the rights to the flick and has already scheduled a Saturday, April 24th at 9 PM EST premiere date. This is never a good sign. But whether or not the movie proves entertaining is almost irrelevant at this point as Corman has already sold the film to 20 international territories and many of the distributors have already signed on for a sequel so expect Dinocroc 2 sometime in the near future.
