DINOSAUR VALLEY GIRLS was the first professional motion picture I both wrote and directed, made for my production company Frontline Entertainment (www.FrontlineFilms.com). The movie was first released in 1996. The movie was a campy fantasy comedy about a movie actor who is magically zapped through time to a mythical valley populated by sexy cavegirls, brutish cavemen and, of course, dinosaurs.
The film has played on TV, been released on home video and DVD, and even had a limited theatrical run. It spawned two books (see “Bibliography“) and a couple songs. There was also an assembly kit of the films’ “Jurassic Punk,” a pesky Allosaurus created by special-effects artist Tom Dickens, cast directly from the stop-motion model animated by Tom in the movie and manufactured by Valley Anatomical Preparations. This limited-edition kit is now a collector’s item.
Among the movie’s cast were Oscar-nominated Karen Black, Emmy winner William (Blacula) Marshall and former “Mr. America” Ed Fury.
