“Do yourself a favor and get really drunk before attempting to watch The Curse of the Komodo.” – Ziggy’s Video Realm

So true, so very true.

Curse of the Komodo is a lot like Raptor Island in, well, one way. No, it’s not nearly as epically awful as Raptor Island, but one of the many negative things about that film pops up in Curse of the Komodo. The enemy of Komodo is a giant komodo, so much of the film consists of our stupid characters firing their guns at CGI. The komodo suffers no wounds, nor does it ever seem all that effected by the hundreds of bullets being sent its way. Raptor Island, at the very least, featured the raptors getting killed every so often.

I can’t believe Curse of the Komodo caused me to defend Raptor Island.

A group of criminals on the run from the law crash their plane into a Hawaiian island where a group of scientists are working on a top-secret project that just had the plug pulled. The electrical current that stops the komodo from killing won’t last very long, so these two very different groups have to band together to battle the komodo. In a random bit that makes no sense and only comes into play once, the komodo not only eats people, but also leaves behind saliva that turns people into zombie-like creatures.

This is the first film that Glori-Anne Gilbert appeared in for Jim Wynorski after starting her career doing various terrible erotic films. Her acting is rough as ever, and she’s here for one reason and one reason only; to display her gigantic breasts.
The reference to Dinosaur Island, along with Richard Gabai showing up for thirty seconds to get capped, are the best parts of this pure b-movie.

DVD: Re-released as a budget DVD from First Look Home Entertainment with new artwork when the company obtained the DEJ library, this is just as barebones as the first version. What’s a real shame is that I’d gotten Jim Wynorski in contact with First Look about possibly recording commentary tracks for this and another re-released film of his, but they threw the library into the market go quickly that there wasn’t any time for it to happen.
