CORMAN FORGES AHEAD

Dread Central repors:

Roger Corman - man, myth, legend.

More importantly, maker of many of a fine monster movie. Also a maker of many a bad monster movie. Come to think of it; he's probably produced more bad monster movies than fine ones. Either way, this master of horror is at it again.

Corman told Sci-Fi Wire last week that Dinocroc 2 is in the works. The first onslaught of the inexplicably two-legged prehistoric crocodile creature arrives on DVD this week so the announcement of a sequel is perfectly timed. Hey, it got big ratings and did well overseas so a sequel a cometh. Personally, I'd skip a straight sequel and move right on to making a Dinocroc vs. Carnosaur flick.

But that's not all! Corman also revealed two more creature features he's producing specifically for the Sci-Fi Channel, both dealing with mythological monsters come back to life to wreak havoc. One is to be called Cyclops and I bet you'll never guess what monster from Greek mythology it's about. The other is Cry of the Winged Serpent, dealing with the Aztec serpent god Quetzalcoatl. Quoting the one sentence AFM description, "A young man is given an ancient amulet that can call upon the power of the mythical Winged Serpent." With Jim Wynorski reportedly helming this one we can expect that it will probably have even less convincing effects than Larry Cohen's 1982 cult classic Q: The Winged Serpent.

In addition to those two in the works, Corman still has two more in the can awaiting to be unleashed upon the general public next year (most likely via the Sci-Fi Channel). One is Scorpius Gigantus, in which Jeff Fahey has to contend with large, mutant, bulletproof scorpion creatures and we the viewing audience have to contend with trying to come up with a single reason why we shouldn't cheer for the scorpions. The other is Saurian, which was either originally entitled Tyrannosaurus Wrecks or it just happens to be an entirely different movie with a near identical concept and the same people behind the scenes. I'm not sure. Regardless, this John Carl Buechler directed dino flick is currently in post-production, which most likely means a team of editors are working round the clock trying to figure out how much footage from the Carnosaur flicks they can recycle in order to save money.

I hate to be so negative but after Corman's atrocious Raptor the prospect of another dino flick from his New Concorde/New Horizons production company does not inspire confidence. Nor does the fact that Saurian, or whatever it will eventually be called, stars Michael Pare. Ugh. Tracy Scoggins and Nick Mancuso are also along for the ride.
