Massacre in Dinosaur Valley (1985) (Blu-ray Review)
Directed By: Michele Massimo Tarantini
Starring: Michael Sopkiw, Joffre Soares, Suzane Carvalho
Rated: UR/Region A/1.85/1080p/Number of Discs 1
Available from Severin Films

Michael Sopkiw (BLASTFIGHTER, KILLER FISH) stars as a cocky paleontologist who crash-lands into a jungle hell chockfull of fashion models, graphic violence, rampant nudity, and tasty gobs of flesh-chomping mayhem. Marta Anderson (BARE BEHIND BARS) co-stars in this “pure exploitative entertainment at its best” (Sex Gore Mutants) – also released as AMAZONAS and CANNIBAL FEROX II – co-written by the legendary Dardano Sacchetti (THE BEYOND, DEMONS) that B&S About Movies says “delivers on everything it promises, except dinosaurs.”

A shady looking airplane is heading off into an area called Dianasour Valley loaded with lots of weird and odd characters, some are on the hot side. The thing goes down right in the middle of a cannibal occupied area and that’s only the half of it in Severin’s release of Dinasour Valley. A movie that I thought by name alone would have more actual Diasour action, but ends up just being a cannibal movie in the vein of an Andy Sidaris. We have a leading man that seems to be channeling his best Bruce Campbell, but given the year it was release you almost have to wonder now if Campbell was always channeling a bit of him instead. Other than that you have violence, a little gore, probably more nudity, and a whole lot of other fun stuff that makes this one worth a watch.

This is a movie that at times can feel like two movies rolled into one. Our crashed cast of misfits have to deal with one issue and then what’s left of them ends up having to deal with another issue in the same jungle in the latter part of the movie. It’s different, but you almost feel like you’ve watched two movies in some regard. None the less, this movie looks great and it never gets dull. I think it’s one of the more fun cannibal movies out there. And I think that the case because this one focuses on not just the bloody side of things but manages to keep things flowing and actually offer up more in the form of a plot. I think it’s a very solid film.
