Cut price Jurassic Park clone.,
This review is from: Carnosaur 1 [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Could this be the worst movie ever made? No, Ed Wood made sure of that but damn Adam Simon went pretty close.
This low budget Jurassic Park clone, uses chicken DNA and even Laura Dern's mother and the odd throwaway line "would make a great theme park". This imitation is the cheapest form of flattery.
Our evil female scientist is using eggs laced with dinosaur DNA to impregnate women to give birth to dinosaurs to help them take over the world. A suitably mad plan that is not out of kilter with this movie as a whole.
The dinosaurs are only one step up the evolutionary scale from those used in Dr. Who's "Invasion of the Dinosaurs". Some scenes even use hand puppets, Sooty, Sweep & Dino?
The only time the creatures look half-way decent is at the end when they go on a rampage through the town.
This is one of those so bad they are good films.
One redeeming feature is the downbeat ending and the military using the same solution as in "The Crazies" and "Night of the Living Dead".
It is certainly worth a look if you like low budget movies like I do. If only they would release the Carnosaur trilogy set on Region 2 discs.
