Audience Reviews for Carnosaur

  • May 19, 2010
    From the words of Flixster user kiriyamakazou: "Roger Corman and his B-Movie pals make the world a much better place to live." Unapologetically awful, Carnosaur deals with a mentally f#cked genetics scientist that designs a genetically superior chicken and, from there, in a hilariously lame manner, dinosaurs start to be born from chicken eggs. In case this shit wasn't enough, women literally get pregnant and give birth to baby dinosaurs! The creatures are so obvious in their foam structure that you'll endlessly laugh out loud, rolling on the floor so many times that you'll create static electricity. Who needs a Jurassic Park when you have the funniest death scenes ever and special effects so bad that the 1976 version of King Kong suddenly seems like a masterpiece. Pure gold, man, I'm telling you. 13/100

    Roger Corman and his B-Movie pals make the world a much better place to live. Carnosaur is unashamedly bad. From the wonky crooked dinosaur puppets, to the acting which stumbles between remembering lines and confusion as to where they are. Rather than going for the simplistic take of cloning dinosaurs (Spielberg, I'm looking at you). Carnosaur favours a convoluted science experiment involving chickens that give birth to dinosaur eggs...??? Maybe? And ends in human women laying dinosaur eggs. If they'd had a budget then the finale, where a construction vehicle takes on a T-Rex, would have been impressive. The ending is very downbeat and depressing, not really what you want after 82 minutes of awful cinema, but very brave.

    In 1993, two dinosaur movies came out. Jurassic Park was one of them. But a month before that film was released, out came Carnosaur, a ridiculous B-movie with effects comparable to the Godzilla movies. A mad scientist decides to wipe out humanity and return dinosaurs to the kings of the world by releasing a virus that impregnates all the women in the world with dinosaur eggs, which will kill them when they give birth. Sound nuts?
