Dinosaur footage from Dinosaurus was used on several episodes of "It's About Time", Sherwood Schwartz's 1966 CBS series, a kind of "Gilligan's Island" with time-warped astronauts stranded in prehistoric times. See more »

A harmless low-budget movie from one of the people responsible for the original "The Blob" and "The 4D Man". Hurricane pulls up perfectly preserved dinosaur bodies from the ocean floor; Tyrannosaur and Brontosaurus, and a caveman. Lightning strikes, dinosaurs come to lift and terrorize bad actors. Caveman comes to life also, befriends kid, and ends up riding the brontosaurus.
I saw this years ago, and remember it as being kinda cool. Always remembered the caveman trying to eat plastic fruit, then wondering into the bathroom and flushing the toilet. The FX were OK, I guess. Think they used puppets, and some stop-motion. Final confrontation with the Tyrannosaur vs a tractor was cool. Kind of a precursor for Ripley's duel with the queen in "Aliens."
"Dinosaurus!" certainly won't make you forget "Jurassic Park," but it's an enjoyable little movie.
