Brian Austin Green,
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 »
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 »
I saw this last night having read most of the mocking and negative reviews and expecting something not much good. I was surprised when the film revealed itself to be a perfectly decent low budget creature outing, with the main idea of killer dinosaurs well realised. Granted, the effects are rubbery and easy to slate, but I had more fun just accepting that they were cheaply made and then enjoying them wreak havoc. The havoc is fairly well portrayed with a handful of nice gory kills, more gruesome than one might expect of a film of this ilk. I though the acting to be pretty reasonable, with Diane Ladd particularly standing out with a suitably crackpot mad scientist performance. It was also nice to see the oddly watchable Clint Howard in a small role. The script isn't great, and the story is more than a tad silly, but these are acceptable faults, because the film is always fun and interesting, and it goes down the odd unexpected alley, which is always nice. Mt fondness for this movie may put me in a minority but I'd say this is a fun, mindless outing that whilst no classic should provide a good deal of fun to creature feature addicts. At the least, it certainly beats the hell out of watching the drecktastic family friendly nonsense of Jurassic Park or the majority of recent dinosaur themed movies.
