Using fossilized DNA, a scientist resurrects one of nature's most fearsome predators, a sabretooth tiger. Scientific ambition turns deadly, however, when the creature escapes and begins savagely stalking its prey - the human race.Written by
When the Sabre Toothed Cat escapes, he is shown breaking the cage by slicing the roof with his teeth. This is impossible, because Smilodon fatalis is known for having large but fragile teeth. This is true for all members of the Machairodont subfamily. See more »
I wasn't expecting too much from this film and in the end got exactly what I had expected. A by-the-numbers shaggy monster flick with some dodgy acting and some very wobbly CGI. But I'm a sucker for this kind of film. In my opinion, the cheesier the better. And they don't come much cheesier than this. Genetically engineered beastie: Check. Monster POV shots: Check. Dumb teens out of their element and in the middle of nowhere: Check. Unresolved love interest: Check. Money grabbing bad guys who are quite obviously next on the menu: Check. Big game hunter who seems to know the surrounding area like the back of his hand even though he's never been near the place before: Check. In fact, just check everything, because it's all there, dodgy CGI warts and all. But still after all that, I liked it. It's all a matter of "when", not "if" but familiarity is it's best asset. You've seen it all before but you're just along for the ride. Definitely a film to watch with as many drunk friends as possible and probably the easiest film to play the standard horror movie game of "Spot The Stiff". Don't take it seriously and it should keep your alcohol dulled, semi comatose brain amused for an hour and a half.
