Was Spielberg involved here?
4 March 2006 | by scooterinsureSee all my reviews

Evidently someone involved in this production has created multiple email accounts to vault the Vote scoring up to 3.6/10. Believe me: This movie rates a 1. Or a fraction.

I have a Love/Hate thing going with this type of movie. On the Hate side movies such as Carnosaur 2 are Z-quality: they pillage clichés without conscience; the special effects don't fool a four-year old; the filming set is often an "underground facility" or "molded plastic cave" to conceal a lack of "site location" budget; the actors are no-names except for one or two spiraling has-beens fresh off the dinner theater circuit; and the plots are ridiculous retreads or riffs conjured on the set.

On the Love side: Such movies are unabashedly pure in their lack of production values, star power, and talent. They are beautiful things to watch and their badness should be admired. An ultra-bad movie like Carnosaur 2 is a lot of fun and hilarious if you have a couple of minutes during channel surfing or if you're stoned at 2 am or having a party.

Little known fact: The special effects were pioneered in the groundbreaking Barney the Purple Dinosaur series. If you look reeeeeeally close...OK, even if you look from a distance...you can see the rubber Carnosaur suits squish up from the guys inside or the obvious camera angle placement to make the 2 foot tall model the size of a forklift...or the rubber toes bending in awkward boneless ways...or you name it.

God bless the Sci-Fi Channel for breathing life into these silly, ultra-low budget horror and sci-fi flicks. Long live the B-movie!
