Carnosaur 2 is a 1995 sci-fi/horror film directed by Louis Morneau. A sequel to the 1993 film Carnosaur, it was released direct-to-video on February 23rd, 1995. The plot centers around a group of technicians who are called in to investigate the power shortage at a top-secret mining facility, only to discover it is actually a remote nuclear dump site where the government transported the dinosaurs from the first film. The dinosaurs got out of their holding area and ate the scientists, and now the technicians must try to survive while avoiding a radiation leak and trying to keep the dinosaurs from escaping the facility.

Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The tagline to this film is "Extinction is a thing of the past".
  • The sixteen-foot tall Tyrannosaurus Rex robot from the first film was reused for this sequel. In the original movie, the robot had frequently broken down and performed so poorly that its use was limited to only a few shots. Despite budget constraints, Magical Media Industries did manage to improve the robot T-Rex so that it could be used more extensively for the battle scene in which the dinosaur fights the forklift. However, the robot was still ill-suited to stunt work (such as the shots of the creature ramming the forklift), so miniatures and hand puppets were again used frequently, as in the first film. [1]
  • The Deinonychus from the first film were replaced by Velociraptors in the sequel. However, the exact same Deinonychus costume molds from the first film were used to create the bodies for the Raptor costumes; only the heads/necks were changed to reflect the longer neck and snout that distinguish the two dinosaurs. Close-ups were achieved using puppet heads with mechanical devices. [2]
  • Scenes from this film were edited into the 2001 film Raptor.
