by Phil Wheat

On 1st February 101 Films will release title 018 on the 101 Films Black Label, a first UK release for the outrageous Tammy and the T-Rex, directed by Stewart Raffill (The Ice Pirates) and starring Denise Richards and Paul Walker in early roles. Originally released in heavily cut PG-13 form, this release follows the US debut from Vinegar Syndrome, and features the recently restored Gore Cut of the film, presented as originally conceived in all its gore-filled glory, featuring the stellar work of special make-up effects legend John Carl Buechler. This limited edition version comes packaged in a slipcase, along with a booklet featuring new writing on the film.

Tammy is a popular high school cheerleader whose new boyfriend, Michael, might be the love of her life. But Tammy’s jealous ex, Billy, won’t stand for anyone coming between him and ‘his’ girl, so he and his friends kidnap Michael, leaving him to be mauled by a lion in a local wildlife reserve. Comatose and at death’s door, Michael’s body is stolen from the hospital by mad scientist Dr. Wachenstein, who extracts his brain and implants it into a giant robotic T-Rex. Horrified by his predicament and new dinosaur body, Michael escapes from the doctor’s lab and begins brutally killing his former bullies. Meanwhile Tammy and her best friend Byron start searching for a suitable human corpse in which to re-transplant Michael’s brain…
