1993 – Carnosaur hits theaters

Just a few weeks before Jurassic Park changed the world, another dinosaur film roared into cinemas. Carnosaur told the story of a scientist who wanted to destroy humanity using dinosaurs. Although two sequels were made and the movie was a success at the box office, Rogert Ebert said it was the worst movie of 1993.

Although the film is overshadowed by Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, Carnosaur still has a cult following of dinophiles who cannot get enough of the miniatures and puppets used to bring the dinosaurs to life onscreen.
