Filmmaker Sean Cain gave us the lowdown on his “dinosaurs run amok” flick Jurassic City (formerly Jurassic Block), which releases February 3rd on DVD via Vertical Entertainment, and we’ve got some exclusive images for you along with a poster and trailer. Read on!
Starring Ray Wise (Suburban Gothic, “Twin Peaks”), Kevin Gage (Heat), Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior), and Robert LaSardo (The Professional), Jurassic City was written and directed by Cain, whose previous genre directorial efforts include the features Silent Night, Zombie Night and Breath of Hate (among others).
With the tag-line of “Throwing L.A. Back to the Stone Ages,” the synopsis of Jurassic City is as follows:
When a top-secret laboratory is unexpectedly breached, thousands of rampaging raptors are unleashed on Los Angeles! A black-ops unit is mobilized to contain the creatures before they cause city-wide chaos. Simultaneously, a truckload of raptors is rerouted to a nearby prison. Upon their escape, these ferocious flesh-eaters are beyond containment. This is Jurassic judgment night for smoking hot sorority girls, sinister scientists, muscle-bound military and doomed death-row inmates! It’s about to get bloody in Jurassic City!
Additionally starring Jack Forcinito, Dana Melanie (“Criminal Minds”), Kayla Carlyle (Rivers 9), Robert LaSardo (“Nip/Tuck”) and Bill Millsap (“Hatfields & McCoys”), filmmaker Cain said of Jurassic City (his fourth feature writing and directing credit), “I’ve done a lot of editing for these monster movies so it was nice to finally get back into the director’s chair on this one. And it was an absolute pleasure to work with amazing producer Anthony Fankhauser, who I’ve been teaming up with quite a bit these past few years.”
As for the casting of Jurassic City, “I had free rein in casting the actors who I wanted to cast,” effused Cain, “and in crafting a story I wanted to make. There weren’t any production companies coming in and tampering with it so it’s all on me, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.”
With the flick additionally hitting Japan on the 9th and slated to be released in all other major territories this year as well, Cain urged, “If the film does well, then I will be able to do a sequel called Jurassic Apocalypse, which will be a combination of Escape from New York and The Warriors, but with dinosaurs. So everyone should go buy a DVD and support it!”
