Inspired by the true story of a legendary 25-foot man-eating crocodile comes the intense, terrifying horror movie Primeval, starring Dominic Purcell and Orlando Jones. An American news crew, determined to capture this voracious monster and stop his demonic rampage, travel deep within the darkest reaches of the African jungle to hunt their prey. But Gustave, as the natives call him, is also on the hunt - always on the move, always elusive, always hungry for human flesh. Heart-pounding fear is nonstop in this edge-of-your-seat nail-biter about the cunning killer who continues to blaze his blood-soaked trail of terror.

Critics Consensus: Primeval is a low-quality horror film, which due to the inane political messages does not even qualify as campy fun.

Grisly croc tale lacks any meaningful bite.
