* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: One of the few scenes lifted from the novel into the first film was the ''Deinonychus'' attacking two teenagers inside a car. In the book, it makes sense as it happens at night and involves a man-sized, fully grown dinosaur. In the film it's in broad daylight with a juvenile who's barely bigger than a schnauzer, making the teen look like idiots for just standing there as what looks like a demented Kermit T. Frog rips into them.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: No Tyrannosaurus rex didn't drag it's tail like that. No Deinonychus didn't over sized hands. No Velociraptor didn't look anything like it does in the movies. Pretty much take all the flaws about the dinosaurs in ''Film/JurassicPark'' and crank it UpToEleven.

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.

'''''Carnosaur 2''''', released in 1995, takes place a little after the events in the first movie. A special team is sent to investigate an underground laboratory that has apparently shut down. When they arrive, they discover that the crew has been reduced to nothing but bloody limbs; obviously eaten. Then after finding a young boy who survived the carnage, they begin getting taken out one by one by the remaining Carnosaurs that were being held down there. The dinosaur effects in this one are improved since the first one, but it is nowhere near as interesting. The end Carnosaur Vs. Bulldozer scene is basically a rehash of the Carnosaur Vs. [[ForkliftFu Forklift]] scene from the first movie. Not the best but decent. By the way, plotwise, it's [[{{Expy}} a shameless rip-off, erm, that is, somewhat inspired by]] the [[Film/{{Aliens}} second Alien movie]]. Watch the two back-to-back and you'll understand.

'''''Carnosaur 3: Primal Species''''', released in 1996, has a team of terrorists hijack a top-secret military convoy, thinking they have captured weapons-grade plutonium. Instead, the convoy was carrying dinosaurs, and the dinosaurs attack and kill the squad of terrorists. A military recovery team learns the convoy is stopped in a warehouse on the local waterfront, and immediately goes out to retrieve it. The dinosaurs attack the squad, leaving only three soldiers. Back at their headquaters, their captain refuses to go back unless they kill the dinos, but the scientist in charge of the operation orders them to merely capture the dinos. Heading back out to the warehouse, the team gets additional help with a Marine Task Force. Together, they still can't control the dinosaurs. They finally find a way to get them under control: luring them out to a ship, sailing them out to sea and blowing the ship up.

Composed largely out of stock footage from the previous three films, '''''Raptor''''', released in 2001, features Sheriff Jim Tanner and his assistant Barbara trace a series of unexplained vicious animal attacks striking his community back to a Dr. Hyde, a former military researcher whose government funding for a dinosaur cloning project was cut. When the Pentagon discovers Hyde obtained foreign backing to continue his experiments, they send in a strike team to save Tanner and Barbara and stop Hyde.

In 2007, the series received a new installment, '''''The Eden Formula''''' ('''''Tyrannosaur Wrecks''''' in Australia), also a Film/SyfyChannelOriginalMovie. 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.

* CluelessAesop: The first movie tries to preach a GreenAesop about the dangers of man destroying nature with machines and that nature belongs to the animals but it is undermined by being a movie about killer dinosaurs and Dr. Tiptree's solution of eradicating the human race.
