Komodo is set during the 70’s when some Komodo Dragon eggs were dumped on the beach of a North Carolina island. Somehow, the baby Komodos survived, and twenty years later they have grown up and taken over the island for themselves. Young Patrick has lost his parents and his dog to the lizards, but didn’t see them himself, which has left him traumatized. Now, with his therapist Victoria, who doesn’t believe the Dragons are real, he is returning to the island to confront his fears. Soon people are being chomped, and Patrick and Victoria must fight for their lives if they ever hope to make it back home.
Komodo (1999) Review:
This intelligent CREATURE film has plenty of thrills, chills and scares to please. The only thing that’s missing is a runaway budget with nothing to show.. Scenes leading up to the killer Komodo attacks are paced in such a way that the viewer can’t help but think that Komodos are around every corner. For all of you out there that want to get your Creature kicks, see this flick as soon as it hits you theater. Kudos to all the filmmakers. Great first time direction by Lantieri. Can’t wait to see what he’s doing next ! Great sets, cinematography, music and editing ! All around SOLID!
