Films: Reptisaurus (2009)
Location: Civilized Area/Forest
Height/Weight: That of an average fighter jet.
Summary: The military seems to have a strange fascination with weaponizing nature. Thing is, it almost always ends in disaster when it happens in film. And why not? You expect a resurrected living fossil to cow tow to some guys just really desperate to shoot things? No way! Just give the beast an island to live on and we'll be good.
History: On a faraway island, a secret government facility was working on new bio-weapons and mutants. The first result was a savage giant cross between an earthworm and a dung beetle, but it proved too violent. Then they spliced the DNA of a vampire bat and a unique species of snake. The end result was Reptisaurus, a small draconic beast. However, it grew and escaped soon afterward, and in a short period of time, most of the scientists were dead, with Reptisaurus taking the role of apex predator on and around the island. Now, the military seeks to destroy Reptisaurus before their crimes against nature get revealed. But that's complicated by the arrival of some marooned regular folk...
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After killing many of the people on the island, Reptisaurus is finally brought down when it's fed a time bomb, blowing it apart. However, it is revealed later that the beast had a nest, and the eggs are hatching...
Powers/Abilities: Reptisaurus has an amazingly resilient hide that can repel all manner of gunfire.
Weakness: Enough shooting at it will irritate it into leaving. However, heavy artillery will kill it.
Scariness Factor: 2-Reptisaurus is a joke when it comes to the effects department. Its body quakes and its movements are erratic. Clear signs of a guy at the computer clearly enduring a first-timer when it comes to manipulating CGI models. A shame too, considering the history and design this guy had.
Trivia: -Reptisaurus is named after and based on an old comic series of the same name. It is in fact based on "Reptilicus", and you can read all about what this comic was in that Danish guy's bio from the 60s.
-This film was known as "Sky Rider" in Japan. Either it's referring to Reptisaurus, or the fact that someone probably didn't see any of the film beyond the first five minutes.
