Carnosaur 3: Primal Species (1996)

Some terrorists think they’re stealing uranium. Nope, it’s frozen dinosaurs.

Some cops think they’re going after drug dealers. Nope, they find dead terrorists and then get killed by two velociraptors and a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

As for you, you’re here for the third Carnosaur movie, one that stars Scott Valentine, who went from being Nick Moore on Family Ties — a character so popular that they tried to spin him off three times* — to My Demon Lover, Roger Corman’s Black Scorpion movies and The Unborn 2.

He’s Colonel Rance Higgins, who must team with Dr. Hodges (Janet Gunn, Silk Stalkings) to escape the dinosaurs.

Seeing as how this was once called Primal Species, it was not made to be a Carnosaur movie. But we all know how 90s direct to video sequels work. I also have been made aware that 2001’s Raptor has footage from these films — and stars Eric Roberts — which means I will have to watch it, as does the 2006 movie The Eden Formula which also has the much better title Tyrannosaurus Wrecks.

*Taking It Home was canceled when Valentine’s co-star, Herschel Bernardi, died. Anther was a Friends style sitcom and the third was The Art of Being Nick, which did air unlike the other two pilots but was not picked up.
