Did You Know?


The T. rex on some variants of the poster, as well as the DVD cover and menu screen is actually a toy model by the French model company Papo, slightly touched up with Photoshop. Another poster features an old robotic T. rex made by the now defunct Dinamation company, with spikes edited onto its head. Other creatures on the posters likewise come from other sources, they aren't from the actual movie. See more »

Of reptiles and men
17 October 2015 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

'Raptor Ranch' (audaciously retitled 'Jurassic Dark' with a D in my country) tells us about the waitress Abbi (Jana Mashonee). She has a really bad day: she is stuck in a boring countryside town, her car breaks down, her boss is really mean to her, and everybody she meets is an idiot. However the worst is yet to come when a bunch of dinosaurs escapes from a farm nearby - how they were bred there, we never really find out. Anyway, there is a lot of screaming, running, killing, more running. Two FBI agents (Declan Joyce and the only star Lorenzo Lamas in a rather small part) look for clues, but don't find much, although the hungry reptiles are running around all over the place.

I can't really say much to praise this movie. The animation is mediocre, acting skills non existing, and the narration and editing clumsy. For example, in one scene 2 characters find a safe place of a roof where the creatures can't catch them. They climb down again - why? Because they enjoy being chased?

In my view, there is only 1 thing that 'Raptor Ranch' does better than other low budget flicks of the genre, and that is the choice of characters. From the entertainer in a purple suit to the college kid who dresses as a Roman Centurio, there is a lot of weird characters, the comedy bits sometimes work well, which is why I don't regret too much that I wasted an evening watching this. One kid proudly announces men will finally defeat reptiles because they have a higher intelligence - this movie may not be the best example for that. I voted 3 of 10.
