I remember watching Carnosaur years ago when it was released. This movie actually bothered me at the time, especially with its ending. The movie doesn't bother me anymore, but I do find it very enjoyable and has a great re-watch value to it.
Diane Ladd has created a disease that only effects females. This disease impregnates them and causes them to give birth to dinosaurs with extremely bloody consequences.
Apparently, this movie was based off of two different novels but I don't know how true it is to those novels. This film does have a few really good moments of gore and shock. Unfortunately, the special effects for the dinosaurs is quite lame. But the movie is still a lot of fun. Look for a few cult actors like Clint Howard. Also, this movie has 2 other sequels which I would highly suggest missing. 8/10 stars
