Short Takes

Didya like them Carnosaur movies? Well, you'll LOVE this sucker. Why? Because producer Roger Corman just snipped ALL the dino chow-down scenes and cobbled them together here. He then had B-auteur Jim Wynorski shoot some new narrative bits in a dubious attempt to paste some sense between the carnage. Sorta like Raymond Burr in the Americanized version of Godzilla our heros -- Julia's bubba Eric Roberts and this gal who won't take her top off -- are there merely to poke around the hamburgered bodies and repeatedly say "What was that?!" If there's a plot here someplace it might have to do with Corbin Bernsen who plays a mad scientist who simply couldn't resist fiddling with dino DNA. Comedy abounds in the ineptly matched shots like a gal with a white stripe on her dress getting into an office elevator and then jump cutting to a female soldier with TWO stripes on her FATIGUES in a FREIGHT elevator fighting off an attacking raptor. Horridly brilliant. Savor CineSchlocker fave Lorissa McComas as Roberts' baby-talkin' daughter. Two breasts. 17 corpses. Gratuitous urination. Tumbling bodyparts. Eight zillion explosions. Roberts recycles the climatic line from Carno Dos, "Eat THIS Barney!!!" The Corona-fueled commentary by Melissa Brasselle and Wynorski (under his Jay Andrews alias) is particularly amusing, which elevates this disc's rating. Recommended.

2001, 81 minutes, Fullframe, Commentary, Trailers, Bios.
