I like it as a classic movie but the animation needs improvement.  I like Reptilicus's roar ; it reminds me of my favorite Godzilla classics! I think the best thing about the movie is that it has a particularly awesome story line.  The snake-like appearance of Reptilicus will please any reptile enthusiast!  I think Reptilicus is a well-made B movie

I like the scene where the people of Copenhagen were panicking.  Did any of these people put powder?

I think a few things areworth noting.
1. Even though lizards can regenerate tails, this stupid dragon thing has the regenerative capabilities of a sea star
2. Did they actually use a paper cut out of a guy when Reptilicus ate some dude?
3. Despite the fact that its a dragon with four legs and a pair of wings, the creature never flies anywhere and its forlegs are continually tucked into its chest while it rears up making stupid noises.
4. Is it just me, or did the acid it was shooting look like neon silly string?
5. Its been a while since I seen this...Did the so-called heroes and swooning women ever actually leave that laboratory/warroom?

A cool flick for it's or any other day. And yes, not only did it play a role in the "Green Acres" TV episode, but has also made inumerable cameos in other shows/movies (including the old "Monkees" TV show)! I like the slime and the people falling off the bridge and into the river with Reptilicus subsequently shown dunking for apples!

Hmmmmm... a big monster eating buildings that don't have things like " ##7^@*&)(%&*$^@ " printed on them.  

Hey, wait a minute!  This ain't Tokyo!  Folks in Denmark have those big varmits too!  

This flick is pretty bad and (judge me if you may), the name Repticillus sounds vaguely sexual, and the head and neck of this monster looks like an evil penis.  Of course, it just could be the bad shrimp I had before screening the video talking to me.

I have a theory.  I think people only post these things to read them and never read anyone elses.  Is this true?  

E-mail me a reply and tell me if this is true.  And keep in mind that I have written a number of reviews here that I think are pretty good, so look for them.  They're real.

I'll read yours if you read mine.

In conclusion, the poor special effects regarding the monster left me a little cold.  Two kernals out of a possible five for this upper European dinosaur.

We are a couple of danes, who just want to say: THIS MOVIE ROCKS. It actually had an award for being the worst movie ever made. But the caveman in overalls is actually one of the greatest actors in danish movie history. He used to play in comedies... and is actually quite good for danish standards
« Reply #37 on: November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM »

Danish Standards?...Geeze...I'm really sorry guys, really sorry. I've read several things about him since finding this sight...I'd love to see him in something "Good"...I don't doubt for a moment that he was talented. A lot of great actors did some trully rancid roles over the years. Ever see Lawence Olivier play General Douglas Macarthur? PAINFUL! John Wayne as Ghengis Khan? Wallace Beery as Pancho Villa? Tyrone Power as Jessie James? Joan Crawford in Trog? Maybe if all these actors had had rubber snakes to play off of, these rancid movies would have at least been amusing. Great word...RANCID...well suited to many a film these days. At least back in the heyday of the Bs no one expected much and movies like Reptilicus was just cheap fun for everybody envolved. Today we have to shell out big bucks to see some huge star bulls**tting his way through some overhyped piece of "Blockbuster" summer crap. I find little movies like Reptilicus much more enjoyable...all these years later and people still talk about it. I know many, including myself who would go and pay top dollar to see many of these funky little B numbers on the big screen again. We don't have revival houses around here...but I think one would do fairly well. In my earlier comment on this film I remarked "Avoid this snot licker." That was just a figure of speech. It's a truley bad film, and like any truly bad's a hoot to watch and to use to drag other unsuspecting victims into the pit of bad movie mania with. Go Denmark! Watch out for them snakes though...

In the scene where Reptilicus attacks a beach, I saw a store that sold perfume.  What brand of perfumes do Danish people put so I can buy one myself.  I also put powder like Johnson's baby powder and I want to know if the people there  put that as well.

Why don't they show this movie on television anymore?  I notice that there is a lot of similarity between this and the Aqua video "Cartoon Heroes".  Clue:  they are both from Denmark.

last year I took a class i which we were supposed to watch Reptilicus. I still don't know why...

anyways, our teacher told us that all the scenes with reptilicus in them looked really good while filming and in editing, but at the grand opening, everything looked as hilarious as we think it is. Actually, the producers sneaked out during the movie because of embarrassment...
great movie though. I laughed so hard  that i nearly threw up when i saw the flying scene...

"Giant monsters are always attracted to Japanese architecture, even in Europe they will find and destroy a pagoda."

That's probably because there is a pagoda in Copenhagen.

To quote my lat Mom(all serious.............NOT!):

"What a TERRIBLE day that was."

THAT was Mom at her finest!!!!

You ain't seen NOTHING until you have witnessed the WRATH that is REPTILLICUS!!!!!

I brought a copy over to Copenhagen and not ONE Dane ever even heard of the flick!!! Gee I wonder why!

That's not ALL!!! They filmed this movie in both ENGLISH and DANISH! There are some BIG differences too!!! The Danish version is longer,has a silly love story,that dopey Peterson guy(a Danish comedian and so i am told was actually a rather respected funny guy in DK!)sings a song for a bunch of little Danish kids called: Who's Afraid Of Reptillicus?",Reptillicus does not spit the green acid slime,he flies(!!!),attacks GERMANY and is NOT hungry for farmer meat!

What's even funnier in the DK version,is the AMERICAN General Grayson,who the Danish directors LOVINGLY portray as an arrogant trigger happy war veteran(you know how those AMERICANS are!!!!Silliness!),somehow someway speaks DANISH. If you have ever heard this OBSCURE language you'd know what I mean!

I was fortunate enough to have the Danish version translated for me while I was in Denmark.

This truly is the classic to end all classics. Best when viewed in Scandinavia just so you can get a glimpse of the Scans shaking their heads in disbelief!!!! Oh I can hear them ROAR when General Grayson is asked if there is anything that can be done for him:

Saw this when I was a boy in the 60's and 70's. I thought it was great back then. Now? Worst film ever. Why do people still watch it? Why does anyone still sell it? Why do we look it up and write about it?
Cuz it's better than a Keanu Reeves movie!

I was proud of my self after seeing this film.  I now consider myself a true b-movie fan.  One thing I noticed, or was it just me, was that it was narated by several different characters.
