Reviews

Ultra low budget sci-fi schlock from director J.R. Bookwalter. A group of spacefaring humanoid aliens land on the planet Gorgon to recharge their ship, unaware that the planet is home to a race of giant prehistoric reptiles. Before long they find themselves fighting for their lives against the dinosaurs and trying desperately to get back to their ship so they can escape.

Format: DVD
Galaxy of the Dinosaurs is the very definition of a low-budget movie. It was originally shot, on S-VHS no less, over three and a half days in 1992 for the exorbitant sum of $1500 (although you'd swear it had to be even less than that). That may or may not include the cost of the Mac on which the editing (and pasting of stock footage from the cheesy Planet of Dinosaurs) was done. All of the original video was shot in the woods behind director Lance Randas' father's house in Mogadore, Ohio. The opening spacecraft sets are way beyond cheap, the story is an exercise in ludicrous futility, and the acting is just horrible all the way around.

Basically, some alien space travelers makes a pit stop on Earth, only to find themselves trapped on a desolate, dinosaur-inhabited planet that doesn't seem Earth-like at all. As they wander around a desolate, winter-time forest, they keep running into stock footage of dinosaurs in an environment that is the exact opposite of their own. Desperate for food (especially the silly guy dressed for a Hawaiian vacation), they go to town on some hallucinogenic sprouts or mushrooms, which makes the film's first death by dinosaur scene a source of great amusement to the rest of them. We viewers go on to enjoy the deaths of several more characters, as the dwindling population of bad actors keeps the movie from lasting more than an hour or so. Before the end credits mercifully roll, however, writer Jon Killough has a secret or two to reveal to the survivors and the hand-full of viewers who hang on that long without passing out or going insane.

In terms of quality, this is a one-star movie if I've ever seen one; in terms of entertainment, however, it provides four full stars' worth of laughter and enjoyment. My two-star rating reflects a balance of these two qualities.
