In the Fiji islands, the greedy and unscrupulous owner of the Valalola Resort Primal Park invites investors and guests for an opening party of his compound composed of hotel and zoo aiming to find partners for his discoveries. When a bunch of college smalltime thieves puts a virus in the security system to participate in a scavenger hunt, the greatest attractions of the zoo - sabretoothes from the prehistoric age developed from DNA found in fossils - escape, killing the hosts and guards for fun.

Cheesy as hell and plenty of fun
19 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

ATTACK OF THE SABRETOOTH is another cheesy-as-hell Sci-Fi Channel special, a low budget monster flick in which a few poorly-acting cast members are hounded by a dodgy CGI creation which inevitably whittles them off one at a time. This one's an open rip-off of JURASSIC PARK, with the action set on a remote tropical island which is host to a new tourist attraction: genetically engineered sabretooth tigers. Inevitably, the beasts escape, with the usual ensuing bloodshed.

This is as silly as it sounds and yet it's also plenty of fun, as is the way with these cheap 'n' cheerful B-flicks. The CGI animation of the sabretooth is just about passable, but eclipsed by an extraordinarily dodgy statue animation which looks like it belongs in a console game circa 1995. Why they couldn't have just built a real statue out of papier mache or something I don't know - it would have been ten times as convincing.

Inevitably there are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments from the bad actors and the silly death scenes, and at least there's some low rent gore to be enjoyed here. The only slightly familiar face in the cast is that of Robert Carradine, the least well known of the Carradine family to begin with. The good news is that ATTACK OF THE SABRETOOTH is short and to the point, over before you have a chance to get irritated by it.
