2007 / Director. Scott Harper.
Review by Glenn Cochrane.
The Asylum make fantastic schlock movies and they make bloody awful schlock movies... and anything in between isn't worth the time. The further you go back in time, the shonkier they are. SUPERCROC was made in 2007 at a time before SHARKNADO, MEGA PIRANHA and MEGA SHARK. Back then they were still building their reputation and trying to establish themselves as an alternative indie b-movie studio. The budgets were significantly smaller and the quality of their "schlock" was arguably atrocious. SUPERCROC is stupendously awful and worth every minute of your time. Grab your mates, drink some beers, eat pizza and enjoy the show. A giant prehistoric crocodile terrorises a rural area of California and a group of soldiers must stop it before it reaches Los Angeles. This is one of the shonkiest of the Asylum catalogue with its low-grade set design, amateur sound recording and dial-an-actor performances. Much of the film takes place in a military control room, which was obviously a converted garage. The wilderness settings were probably filmed in the back yard (probably behind the garage) and the overall attention to detail was absent. Yep, not a single fuck was given when making SUPERCROC. Given its blatant awfulness, there is no question that it is a heap of fun. Like the tacky d-movies of the 60s, this one is something of a cult favourite. Watching it is easy. Ripping it to shreds with friends is even easier. Good fun.
