Gore galore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12 May 2003 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

A group of military troops are trapped in a wear-house where they are killed-off by killer reptilian menaces.Although the

dinosaurs are a bit unconvincing,there is some great gore; lots of severed heads and blood splatters,making this one fun b-movie. And actually, the script and direction are not that bad, and the acting and production values are not that bad,when compared to other direct-to-video titles released around the time. Also be on the look-out for a strange (but truly unique) musical score by Kevin Kiner.
