First there was Dinocroc (US-2004; dir. Kevin O’Neill), then there was Supergator (US-2007; dir. Brian Clyde) — both produced by the inimitable Roger Corman (see Undead Brainspasm article).
Now there’s Dinocroc vs Supergator, and courtesy of Jim Wynorski we bring you the latest images of the rampaging beasts — bigger and more fiercesome than ever! (Click on the images to be overwhelmed!)
In June this year (according to IMDb), the film — then in post-production — was called Volcanic, and was being directed by Rob Robertson. It was to star David Carradine. I can’t help wondering how much of the great exploitation-film actor’s part had been completed when he died on 3 June 2009 in a Bangkok hotel. Hopefully, as the film is still listed on Carradine’s IMDb entry as being in post-production, we’ll be able to see him in it. That will certainly give it added interest for me.
At any rate the title Volcanic has not stuck and Dinocroc vs Supergator is due to be released in January 2010.
Addendum: News just in! David Carradine did complete his part, so we can look forward to seeing the star of some great genre flicks — such as Q – The Winged Serpent (US-1982; dir. Larry Cohen), Death Race 2000 (US-1975; dir. Paul Bartel) and Tarantino’s Kill Bill — as well as the iconic Kung Fu TV series — dealing with a pair of giant reptiles. Thanks, Avery.
