A space-ship gets lost and is forced to make an emergency landing on an unknown planet. The planet looks much like Earth, only with no trace of civilization. Soon the crew discovers that there are dinosaurs on the planet, and blood-thirsty buggers at that. The crew hopes to be found and rescued, but they have to struggle to survive until then.

An Acquired Taste
4 January 2003 | by (Bowling Green, OH) – See all my reviews

I received this movie as a birthday present from my new uncle when I was about 5. I must say that while it is an unabashedly "B" movie, it is an acquired taste. It has grown on me to the point that I love it. The characters, while unbelievably amateur in their portrayal, are a fond memory of my childhood and make this movie a pleasant diversion from the mundane world.
