After an African dinosaur ancestor of the crocodile is found, Dr. Campbell uses its DNA to create prototypes at Paula Kennedy's Genetic Research Co. (Gereco) lab. However one must be put down after killing someone, another escapes and the information is kept from sheriff Harper. His daughter, county dog catcher Diane Harper, helps her ex (welding artist Tom Banning) with his kid brother Michael's beloved dog. They bump into Campbell and discover the dinocroc is growing, having escaped down a tunnel. Although Gereco hires Australian crocodile specialist and intrepid hunter, Richard 'Dick' Sydney, the beast proves impervious to bullets, so the body count rises alarming. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Roger Corman approach the SyFy channel with a sequel which they turned down in fear of it being a total bomb so Corman scrapped it until 2007 when it was reintroduced as a new movie called Supergator which he produced as well as the 2010 sequel to both films Dinocroc vs Supergator. See more »


In the opening title sequence the newspaper snippets mention scientists discovering amino acids in a 100 million-year-old fossil. Fossils are living matter that have been replaced with stone and therefore have no amino acids in them. See more »

Totally fake CGI. How can anyone fall for it?
3 July 2006 | by nerpaakulaSee all my reviews

There are some things I can never understand. Such as this movie. What if I were to create a really really cheap and crappy looking Dino and crocodile polygon model in Maya and then proceed to cut and paste that into an amateur video clip having people scream and getting eaten by the same thing? How can anyone even believe that an utterly fake CGI dinocroc that looks completely out of place, would influence the events in this movie? I know that its B-grade, low budget and all but the producers could do better than making a piece of crap that no one will ever seen see or sit through. It just does'nt make sense. Are people really so stupid that they would sit through this? Apparently so. For laughs? No, this thing isn't even worth laughing at.
