Kirsty Mitchell and Steven Brand in Triassic Attack (2010)

No Skin on Old Bones

There is trouble in the county as University President Richmond Keller (Christopher Villiers) has deceitfully bought sacred Native American land to build on which has angered Dakota (Raoul Max Trujillo) and many other locals whose family have lived their for generations. It puts Jake (Steven Brand - Accidental Switch), the local sheriff and also Dakota's nephew, in a difficult spot as his ex-wife, Emma (Kirsty Mitchell - Firequake), a prominent archaeologist, is dating Keller whilst their daughter, Savannah (Emilia Clarke - Dom Hemingway), is getting herself involved with college students. It is because of his anger that Dakota manages to bring to life the bones of 3 dinosaurs and now these skeleton monsters are not only prowling the area and terrifying the locals but are indestructible.

The saying goes "New Skin on Old Bones", well when it comes to "Triassic Attack" it is a case of "No Skin on Old Bones" as we have people being chased by dinosaur skeletons which are alive thanks to an angry Native American who has used old spirit magic to bring them to life. But the truth is what we have in "Triassic Attack" is sheriff Jake, are hero trying to save the day, with the help of his archaeologist ex-wife whilst also trying to find their daughter who has been playing down by the river with her boyfriend. If that sounds familiar it is because the same ideas of estranged family members uniting to deal with disaster as money orientated businessmen ignore advice and so on have been used in more movies than I care to remember.

Emilia Clarke in Triassic Attack (2010)

What this means is that we have some less than effective looking dinosaur skeletons causing chaos whilst we have some daft characters thrown in for comedy effect, except they are not very funny. I wish I could tell you that there is something in "Triassic Attack" to praise but there isn't and in truth the one thing which may interest you about this made for TV disaster movie is that it features Emilia Clarke who went on to be in "Games of Thrones".

What this all boils down to is that "Triassic Attack" is exactly the sort of nonsense you expect from a made for TV disaster movie which features dinosaurs.
