Blu-ray Review: DINOSHARK
Dinoshark is the latest creature feature to be unleashed on DVD and Blu-ray via Anchor Bay. The Roger Corman and Linda Corman produced Syfy hit puts on a good show for any fan of this type of film.
Eric Balour plays our hero Trace McGraw (no relation to Tim) in the movie and pulls off a good ob since I’ve seen him on both sides of the acting fence, good guy and bad guy. His acting is just a little dry but is still believable. He is partnered up with the good looking Carol played by Iva Hasperger who obviously is “the brains” of the operation to capture the loose creature Dinoshark. They end up fighting more with the local police than the big fish itself but end the end they get it on with Dinoshark but I’m not telling you who wins, it’s a bloody mess! There are plenty of “innocent victims “ that get in the way throughout the movie so you don’t ever have to go too long without another fishy kill scene. Also you know there will be a sequel, there has to be a sequel!
The special effects are great for Dinoshark, some scenes are a little too cheesy but that’ what fans like us expect in a Roger Corman movie. Lot’s of water kills and the killer prehistoric fish even gets his kill on in the shallow waters which is real entertaining to watch!
Bottom line is Dinoshark is a great watch for any hardcore creature feature fan, and there’s a lot of us out there too! Syfy teaming up with Roger and Linda Corman with Anchor Bay distributing this movie is simply a great match! If I were to rate this movie with kills, I’d give it 3 ½ kills out of 5. Big bloody kills too!
Born in Antarctica, Dinoshark noses his way down the warmer currents to Mexico, towards a popular vacation spot crowded with party-goers unwittingly ready to fall prey to a prehistoric eating machine. When the killings begin, it becomes clear that no normal animal can be responsible for such savagery.
Local captain Trace McGraw (Eric Balfour – “24”, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Skyline) and marine biologist Carol (Iva Hasperger – “CSI”, “Cold Case”) seem to be the only ones convinced that the creature terrorizing their shores is something other than the expected man-eating shark. They enlist the help of the world’s only expert on the Dinoshark (Roger Corman himself). Together, will they be able to reel Dinoshark in?
Dinoshark is the story of a terrifying sea-creature that threatens to turn a holiday swim into a bloodbath. This fierce, finned predator has to be seen to be believed: if he will let you live that long!
Bonus feature includes a full-length commentary track with producers Roger and Julie Corman.
