Rex Garret: Now you give me one good reason why crocodiles should be protected. Just one!
Rex GarretSteve Harris: One good reason? For 200 million years there's been a croc-like-animal... they were here at the time of the dinosaurs. For 200 million years! And we've taken them to the brink of extinction in 20.

I found it!
25 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I might be one of only a handful of people, to have seen this movie in Australia. I had read about 'Dark Age' in Fango, many years ago, and had knowledge of the production.(it was shot in my home town- Darwin) So I waited patiently, time pass, but nothing! Then one fateful day, a friend came back from East Timor with a bunch of bootleg DVDs. Amongest them was 'Dark Age', with the alternative title- 'Lake Placid 3: Dark Age'. It was a really dodgy copy, that fell apart towards the end, but it was enough to get an idea of what I had been missing. Hopefully with the release of 'Rogue', someone might dig up the rights to this gem and get it out there.
