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

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 »

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
