This is by far one of the worst movies I have ever seen and it has left a lasting impression on my mind, because it is so bad!
I don't understand how or why any sane person could write or direct such a terrible film. "Carnosaur" is a lame excuse for a horror movie. I didn't get scared once, instead I only wondered why the hell I rented it. There wasn't one character which I liked or cared about, there was hardly any character development, the dialogue is cheesy (as can be expected with this genre), the acting is laughable and melodramatic, the music is boring, the direction is bad, the makeup is fake and the dinosaurs...they look okay on the cover, but in the movie they move robotically and you'd have to be blind to not notice the cheap animatronics involved.
The biggest reason I disliked this film so much though, was because it was so dark. I'm not saying I'm a chicken when it comes to dark movies, I love them, but what I mean is most of it takes place in the dark, giving it a depressing feel and making it's low budget visible. Maybe the film makers thought that this made it more scary, but it doesn't.
Elements of the plot would have made great "X-Files" or "Outer Limits" episodes. Unfortunately the film makers decided to make this big steaming pile of doo-doo.
Whatever you do, don't subject yourself to this torture, if you are a movie lover you'll have unpleasant memories of this thing for the rest of your life. Go rent "Jurassic Park" if you want to see a great movie with lots of dinosaurs. 2/8
P.S. If you want to see one of the best movies ever made, rent "The Usual Suspects", now that's a great film!
