A dormant volcano houses a deadly prehistoric secret in this tale of reptilian terror from Firestarter director Mark L. Lester. As two expeditions journey into the deep forests of Mt.

Audience Reviews for Pterodactyl


"Hey, it IS a PTERODACTYL!! hes comin' right for us!!!!"

Okay effects, generic characters, gruesome deaths. Nothing out of the ordinary from this film apart from the fact it is quite enjoyable. That's a given though when you feature soldiers, scientists, dinosaurs and Coolio. Bet that gangsters paradise is looking mighty good in comparison. You should be happy with what you have. The overall feel is more professional than many similar films and some of the lines are damn side splitting in their absurdity. It never quite capitalise on some of the moral issues concerning Professor Lovecraft. It is however a much better film than Jurassic Park III.

Without question my most favorite B grade science fiction movie of all time. With some poorly placed cliche, yet beautiful (ha!) love story intertwined in the horror of giant, man-eating flying dinosaurs, it's really quite humorous. (Ok, so if you can translate that huge jumble of insanity, you are a better person that I, and I WROTE it.)

With horrible CGI and LOADS of fake blood, this is my favorite movie, EVER.

Well, at least in the terms of scifi channel original movies. ;)
