Funny dino splatter - watch immediately after Jurassic Park
This little Roger Corman produced film is pretty funny. It has some crazy scientist who thinks that people have violated and exploited nature and also animals for so long, that it is now the time for a payback. The plot is pretty confusing (as usual) but soon very hungry and angry dinosaurs are eating people alive in hilarious trash scenes.
The effects are OK and you'll love this if you like trash cinema. This is not great movie, but great in its own little category which has to be understood. If you only like mainstream s*it like Armageddon or Jurassic Park 1-3 then you'll hate this and laugh yourself alive. But viewed as a trash picture without significant cinematic or artistic values Carnosaur is OK. I haven't seen the sequels but will pick them up if opportunity appears.
