No dinosaur was harmed or mistreated during the making of this film.
In the third carnosaur movie: Primal Species, terrorists highjack a cargo thinking they have valuable uranium. Instead they have on their hands genetically engineered dinosaurs. (What other kinds of dinosaurs are there?) Guess what happens to them. Yeah! Blood, Guts, Gore, Dead. Enter harbor police to investigate the crime. Guess what happens to them. Yeah! Blood, Guts, Gore, Dead.
Enter (in slow motion) the most macho special ops teem you ever saw ready to take down bad guys and assist the harbor police. God forbid anyone would tell them what they are trying to recover. After all it’s classified. Then for good measure add some marines (also macho, even the woman) to help the special ops guys.
This movie is supposed to be a follow up to the first two. There is only a slim connection in that the dinosaurs are from eggs that survived from one of the dinosaurs from a previous movie.
We’re talking Roger Corman here so… Low budget. Lots of explosions. Same puppet dinosaurs. Lots and lots of over the top acting. Minimal plot. Good amount of blood. Some heads bitten off. Funny as hell.
I like dinosaurs. Even crappy ones. This movie has crappy ones. So of course I still liked it. And I laughed. So not great by any means but I don’t need great as long as you have a dinosaur. And this one has several.
Carnosaur 3-Primal Species was released in 1996 and was directed by Jonathan Winfrey. The film was winner of a Golden Scroll Award from The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror. The directors from Carnosaur and Carnosaur 2, Adam Simon and Louis Morneau, are credited as "Carnosaur Consultants".
The credits include the following statement: "The American Dinosaur Association monitored all dinosaur action. Scenes depicting violence to dinosaurs were simulated. No dinosaur was harmed or mistreated during the making of this film." Good to know.
Rick Dean was in both Carnosaur 2 and Carnosaur 3, however, as different characters.
