Primal Rage, a review by Jimmy




Title : Primal Rage (1988)

Overview
This blood-soaked, stomach-churningly gory Italian horror outing is set on a college campus in Miami and chronicles the grisly aftermath that occurs when a student is bitten by a lab animal and turns into a voracious, man-killing beast! Will the fun loving campus in Florida turn into a blood bath? Will the campus concert turn into a massacre of the macabre?

My Impression
It's an italian movie so we know what to expect, a lot of blood and nice make-up effect. Right from the start we see that it will deal with medical experiment done with monkey lab and we know that it isn't a thing who usually end well. Of course it won't since the monkey escapes and the virus it carry with him... Well done movie where the students look loke student (wich is sure a rare thing in movies), as expected the special effects are well done and it doesn't silly since the film was made in english so it isn't dub. Wich doesn't mean that the acting is great in any ways (a lot of overacting and bad acting, but it goes with the territory) and check for a young Sarah Buxton who is quite hot in this (at least at the beginning :whistle:). This film sure had the most annoying theme song ever written and to make it even worst the song play three times...

Another good one.

My Thoughts:
I have seen this movie before. But it has been a while... not since it was first released. I can't remember how off hand. Whether it is one I watched with a friend... the library... or netflix. I have always enjoyed the Rambo movies. So this one was a no-brainer to add to my collection. Plus there is the bonus that the lovely Julie Benz is in this one. I became a fan of hers when I first saw her on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Anyone that seen any of the Rambo movies knows what to expect with this one... non-stop action and plenty of gore. You see beheadings, people shot, limbs blown off... pretty much name it. I definitely enjoyed it... well worth the time it took to watch it.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
I think it's a great series. When I saw the pilot when it first appeared on the internet, I really liked it. I was hoping that the rest of the series holds up. And I think it did. Cannot wait for season 2!

Major plot hole in the pilot though:
How did the Cromartie terminator travel to the future when it was already blown to pieces and thus not covered by "living tissues" anymore?

Now I am hoping that Arnie will turn up in a cameo. I imagine a scene set in the future where we see how John sends the re-programmed Arnie back in time for Termintor 2.

This series put me in the mood to watch T1 and T2 again. Maybe I will do it soon.
