During the 70's, some Komodo Dragon eggs were dumped on the beach of a North Carolina island. Somehow, the baby Komodos survived, and twenty years later they have grown up and taken over the island for themselves. Young Patrick has lost his parents and his dog to the lizards, but didn't see them himself, which has left him traumatized. Now, with his therapist Victoria, who doesn't believe the Dragons are real, he is returning to the island to confront his fears. Soon people are being chomped, and Patrick and Victoria must fight for their lives if they ever hope to make it back home. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

7 August 2000 | by (Savannah, GA) – See all my reviews

I work at a video store, and I watched this last night. It's available for rental Tuesday, and believe me I'm going to recommend this to all fans of sci-fi and horror films. Initially, you may think this is just a cheesy lizard flick, but disregard those thoughts IMMEDIATELY. This movie is full of awesome special effects and several set pieces that WILL make you jump, most definitely. The F/X team seamlessly blended Phil Tippett's CGI Studio's work with animatronics to create a truly creepy and genuinely scary horror film. Sure, the characters and script aren't Oscar material, but if you're in the mood for a good horror film that'll make you perch on the edge of your seat in anxiety, then "Komodo" is the perfect rental for a Saturday night the dark.
