Dark Age

1h 30m Horror, Adventure, Australia, Australian 1987

A park ranger is tasked with dealing with a killer crocodile that appears to have a spiritual connection to the local Indigenous community.

A classic tale of terror from the golden age of Aussie exploitation, Dark Age features outback stalwart John Jarratt (Wolf Creek) as Northern Territory wildlife ranger Steve Harris, a stoic survivor charged with conserving the ever diminishing crocodile population from encroaching hunters, hell-bent on the destruction of the species. Faced with formidable opposition from gung-ho hunter John Besser (Max Phipps, Mad Max 2), Steve is joined by girlfriend Cathy (Nikki Coghill, The Time Guardian) and sets out to relocate a giant crocodile to a breeding ground sanctuary, well out of harm’s way. Aided by expert trackers Oondabund (Burnam Burnam, Ground Zero) and Adjaral (David Gulpilil, The Tracker), the intrepid foursome risk life and limb in a terrifying journey that will test their nerves and transform the tranquil Territory waters into a raging red torrent of death.
