In 2007, the series received a new installment, '''''The Eden Formula''''' ('''''Tyrannosaur Wrecks''''' in Australia), also a Film/SyfyOriginalMovie. Jeff Fahey stars as Dr. Harrison Parker, a scientist who invented the titular formula, which is capable of resurrecting any corpses it comes into contact with. The Calgorin Industries tests the formula by reviving a T-rex, much to the chagrin of Parker. Then, James Radcliffe (Creator/TonyTodd) and his henchmen raids Calgorin trying to get their hands on the formula and accidentally releases the now revived T-rex, which escapes and runs amok at the (empty) streets of UsefulNotes/LosAngeles. Parker, joined by Calgorin's exec, Rhonda Shapton (Dee Wallace) attempts to stop the dinosaur while escaping from Radcliffe's men. The movie is perhaps notable for featuring a leaping T-rex.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted in the first movie- the sheriff is the last character to die before Doc and Thrush. Played straight(er) in 2 and 3 where the black characters aren't the ''first'' to die but don't exactly make it past the first act either.

Added DiffLines:

* VasquezAlwaysDies: Subverted in ''Carnosaur 2'', where Rawlins outlives the more feminine Galloway only to get horribly mauled to death near the end of the movie. Played straight in ''Carnosaur 3'', with soldiers Coolidge and Proudfoot getting killed while scientist Hodges becomes the first woman to survive a ''Carnosaur'' movie.

* NearVillainVictory: The antidote for the quickly spreading virus was destroyed in the first film's DownerEnding, so it would seem Jane's plan was a success.... but the fact that there was a sequel meant it was averted ''somehow''.

Harry Adam Knight), the film stars Diane Ladd as Dr. Jane Tiptree, a MadScientist whose been fiddling around with the DNA of chickens, thus causing them to lay dinosaur eggs. When one of the egg hatches into a [[strike:cheap hand puppet]] ''deinonychus'', it escapes and starts tearing up the local countryside. The attacks lead local security guard Doc (Creator/RaphaelSbarge) and hippie Thrush (Jennifer Runyon) to Jane's hideout, where they find out she is planning to wipe out humanity by unleashing a virus that will make all women in the world become fatally pregnant with dinosaurs, whereupon they will take over the earth.

The first film and the fourth coincided with the release of [[Film/JurassicPark the first]] and [[Film/JurassicParkIII third]] ''Jurassic Park'' films while the third film was released not much earlier (roughly two months) before Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark hit theaters.
