Scorpius Gigantus
25 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hmm.. well I was surprised when I started watching this, as it appeared to be in the hands of a vaguely competent director. Well the lighting's quite good, considering the normal quality of filmaking to be found on the Horror Channel.

It only grabbed my interest though when I noticed the major in it was the same bloke who was the major in Carnosaur 3 (aka Primal Species). having endured that gem of filmaking last week, I carried on watching out of loyalty.

Turns out the movie is a virtual shot for shot remake of Carnosaur 3 - even down to the bizarre we were in a warehouse, now we're on a ship plot twist. Even the "climactic" explosion is a straight lift from Carnosaur 3.

In its defence, the script, acting and effects are step forward from Carnosaur 3. Sadly thats still a long way behind pretty much any movie you will watch.
