Overview

An underseen Ozploitation gem that counts Quentin Tarantino and David Stratton among its fans, killer croc classic Dark Age is Australia’s answer to Jaws. Steve Harris (John Jarratt) is a Northern Territory conservationist charged with protecting the region's ever dwindling crocodile population from rapacious hunters. Joined by girlfriend Cathy (Nikki Coghill), he sets out to relocate a giant crocodile to a sanctuary, well out of harm’s way. Aided by expert tracker Oondabund (Burnam Burnamo) and Adjaral (David Gulpilil), the foursome race against blood-thirsty redneck hunters in an epic mission to save this sacred creature.

Why You Should See This Film

With a soundtrack of pulsing synths, a schlock-filled script, and one seriously giant crocodile, Dark Age is a one-of-a-kind eco horror creature feature with a welcome message of sustainability. Praising the film in the 2008 documentary Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! , Tarantino suggested: “You could re-release Dark Age in 2,000 screenings and people would go see it.” Let’s see if he was onto something.
