Storyline

A brilliant geneticist, Diane Ladd, plans to expose a lethal virus to every human being on the planet. Her objective: to destroy humankind in favour of her new strain of prehistoric dinosaurs. Two people stand in the way of her diabolical plan, a cynical night watchman and a lovely idealistic environmentalist. The two must overcome their differences long enough to uncover the scientist's scheme and fight her carnivorous creations in a desperate battle against the extinction of the human race. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

Trivia

The Tyrannosaurus Rex effects were achieved by means of a miniature remote-controlled puppet, a man in a suit, and a full-sized, 16-foot-tall robot. However, only a handful of shots involved the full-size robot, which had too narrow a range of movements to be convincing. The man in the suit proved equally cumbersome and was scrapped. Thus, most F/X shots were accomplished with the remote-control miniature and even some hand puppets. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie when the people get killed inside the Jeep, there is blood all over the interior, but later, when the police are investigating the scene, there is noticeably less blood on the inside of the windows. See more »

"Jurassic Park" written and directed by Ed Wood
5 July 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was the best of the bad films I ever seen. I do have to agree with Big Rich when he said "Makes 'Plan 9 from Outer Space' Look like 'Jurassic Park.'" It does look like a movie that Ed Wood would have done! But, this film was better then any of Ed's movies, sure the dinosaur looked liked a man in a dinosaur costume but at least the dinosaur wasn't "dead" like the octopus in the Ed Wood film. If you're a "Jurassic Park" fan or a dinosaur fan you should give this movie a try.

A very enjoyable film!
