One might argue that 1987's "Dark Age" is merely another Australian crocodile film, which offers nothing new. That would be unfair. Yeah, I do admit that much of this film may be interpreted as a cheap rip-off of "Jaws." Entire scenes seem to be lifted out of Spielberg's expensive rip-off of "Moby Dick." However...would you rather see a gratuitous rip-off of "Jaws" or a rip-off of "Silkwood"? For horror fans, "Dark Age" is an interesting film which inspired many plot devices in those made-for-Syfy films.
