* ''NightmareFuel/TheLostWorldJurassicPark''



* From the second movie, to rekindle your fear of ''Velociraptors'': The grass scene where the scared survivors are fleeing from the ''T. rex'' in the forest by running through the grass. Particularly that bird's-eye shot where they're charging through the grass, being loud, carving a big track, ''and the little trails snaking silently through the grass behind them...''
--> '''Ajay:''' [[OnlySaneMan Don't go into the long grass!]] ''Not into the long grass!''



* Most of the trailer scene in ''The Lost World'', but especially the part where Sarah has fallen onto the windshield and only the glass is separating her from falling off the cliff entirely. And then the glass starts to crack...yipes!
* [[spoiler:Eddie's]] death in ''The Lost World''. He was only trying to help out the gang by [[spoiler:pulling them back up from falling off the cliff]], but dies after one of the ''T. rexes'' bites him, carries him up, and [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe shares the other half of him with its mate]].
* In ''The Lost World'', the scene where Sarah and Kelly are holding off the stalking raptors in the shed. They board up one door to keep one raptor out, only for a second raptor to show up [[spoiler:in the same hole that they were digging to get out]].
* In ''The Lost World'', the scene where the ''Tyrannosaur'' shoves its head into the tent where Kelly and Sarah are, sniffing the blood from within the tent.



* ''The Lost World'' starts with a little girl walking away from her family vacation on the beach and heading towards the forest when a group of compies attack her. [[AdultFear When her parents hear her screams and run to get her]], there's a reaction shot of her mother stopping and screaming as she looks at her daughter offscreen. [[NothingIsScarier It doesn't show us what happened to the girl, but instead cuts to the next scene of Malcolm at a train station.]] However, the girl ''does'' live.
* In ''The Lost World'', Dieter Stark goes off into the forest to relieve himself. He manages to get lost, then gets ambushed by compies. [[spoiler:He fights them off the first time, but is badly wounded and trying desperately to drag himself back to camp. He clambers over a fallen tree, the compies leap over it to follow him [[NothingIsScarier and we hear him scream...and then we hear the dinosaurs settle down to eat, as the waters are tinged red...]]]]
** ... and just to drive this home, an off-screen search for him turns up [[spoiler:"[[FridgeHorror just the parts they didn't like]]."]]
** The Compies in general are quite scary. They're like little vicious piranha, lizards who don't fear man or anybody bigger than them, and when they attack they claw and bite their victims to death, leaving almost nothing for identification.
*** And in the novels, they're ''poisonous''. Their venom is like morphine, making you just kind of drift off into pleasant euphoria while the vicious little bastards start eating you alive. And you just don't care.
* [[spoiler:Ludlow's]] death doubles as this and CrowningMomentOfAwesome. He follows the infant ''T. rex'' down into a cargo hold to re-capture it. [[spoiler:Then the infant's [[PapaWolf father]] shows up, seeing Ludlow attacking its child. The father ''chews Ludlow's leg'', crippling him, and allows its baby to finish him off.]]
** Also counts as a bit of DarkHumor: [[spoiler:As we hear Ludlow's final scream, the father Rex lets out an approving growl, as if to say "That's my boy..."]]
* It's bad enough that there's an unsafe theme park full of aggressive dinosaurs on an island. But in ''The Lost World'', they end up being shipped to U.S. soil, at a well-populated city no less!

* The most recent game from TelltaleGames is full of NightmareFuel, and is perhaps the most horror-themed out of any of the ''Jurassic Park'' media. See NightmareFuel/JurassicParkTheGame for examples.

It's a series of dinosaur movies, two of which are directed by Creator/StevenSpielberg, with video games and huge toy lines. Sounds perfectly kid-friendly, right? Well, [[NightmareFuel not entirely]]. As [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids many young dinosaur fans found out the hard way]], ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' [[Music/WeirdAlYankovic is frightening in the dark]].

This page is for all terrifying things in ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' -- the books, the movies, the video games, you name it.

* Another fun scene: Dr. Wu and the other survivors are holed up in the lodge while Ellie is making a distraction for the raptors so they won't attack Grant, who is trying to restore the park's power. However, two raptors already inside the compound which the survivors had kept in sight suddenly disappear, so Wu goes out to warn Ellie that they are on the move. As he does, one of the same raptors jumps down from the roof, tears him open, and eats him while he is still alive. The attack was so sudden that Wu tried to push the raptor's mouth away from him without noticing his intestines have spilled out of him.

* Face it; Ellie is convinced that the park was destined to fail and everybody's noticed the fallacies in securities. Even without Nedry, there would have been accidents sooner or later thanks to the park's proximity to hurricanes -- no auto-locks on the damn car doors? And if it hadn't happened then... who knows how many people might have been on the island when there was a real foul-up?
* In one of the very first chapters of the book, the perspective jumps to a Costa Rican midwife who is checking in on her newborn charge. She hears strange chirping noises and rushes into the baby's room, only to see three dark-green "lizards" (in reality a pack of ''Procompsognathus'') crouched over the infant's crib. Right before her eyes, they resume ''eating the baby's face'' until the midwife scares them off. It's too late, however, and the baby is already dead. AdultFear, indeed.
* The Raptors in the novels are fairly chilling by (perhaps artificial, perhaps not) nature. Intelligent as apes, built for frightening speed, sporting a variety of sharp killing instruments, and hunting in highly-organized packs. Not only that, they're explicitly mentioned to hunt and kill because [[AxCrazy it's fun to do so]].
* "he felt a slight pain, only slight, as the compy bent to chew his neck."

* The very first death in the movie, in the first three minutes, the RedShirt worker who gets chomped by a ''Velociraptor'' when the attempt to move her from her crate to her enclosure goes wrong. Made all the more scary because, at this point in the movie, we don't know what this thing in the crate ''is'', and [[NothingIsScarier we never get a good look]] during the attack. It ends with all the other workers desperately tasing the unseen monster, and Muldoon hanging on to the poor guy for dear life, ''screaming'' at the top of his lungs for someone to ''just shoot her''.

--->'''Dr. Sattler:''' ''[ecstatically as power returns]'' Mr. Hammond, I think we're back in business! ''[[[JumpScare raptor comes out from behind and scares her]]]''
* The scene where the ''T. rex'' attacks the car with Lex and Tim inside. Normally, you'd expect a car to provide at least a modicum of protection from a wild animal. Not so with the ''T. rex''.
** "Where's the goat?" (Cue splattering of bloody goat leg on the window.)
** Vehicles in general tend to be very flimsy protection in all three movies. If anything, they end up trapping the occupants and leaving them at the mercy of whatever is trying to get at them. Honestly, Tim and Lex got off easy compared to what happened to other characters in this situation. (i.e.- being sent over a cliff; yanked out and torn in half; sent crashing into a nearby store; dragged out, stomped on, and decapitated; trapped in an animal cage and nearly drowned ... with the creature reaching into said cage and trying to pluck you out).

The other two raptors, you didn't even know they were there.
** This troper missed Muldoon's death the first time he saw it in the theater, and the second time, watching him assemble his gun, Grant's words came flooding back all of a sudden. ChekhovsGun meets OhCrap.
** The kitchen scene with the two raptors stalking the children, and one of those raptors being The Big One. Critics didn't name this scene as the 95th scariest movie moment of all time for nothing!
** And the sound the ''Velociraptors'' make when they walk! The ''thud'' of the foot, then the ''tick'' of the "killing claw." If you have pets with claws and hardwood floors, prepare to ''freak the fuck out'' if one of them goes wandering the house late at night. . .

* [[spoiler:Nedry]]'s death in the movie. The ''screaming.''
** The ''Dilophosaurus'' in general. At first, she comes across as this curious little critter with a rather cute, monkey-like cry and you think she's harmless, but then she won't stop coming near you and then she shows her true colors.
** When Nedry get's hit with her venom a second time, you can hear a sizzling sound effect. This implies that the corrosive venom would have ''[[EyeScream slowly dissolved his eyes away]]''. Almost makes his death sound like a MercyKill.

** Watch the scene again. At one point, Rexy rams the side of the jeep with her head, and if she didn't come into direct contact with Sattler right then, it sure ''looked'' like it! One can hardly imagine her terror in that instant--no wonder she screams as loud as she does seconds later. Rexy ''could have'' eaten her right then and there.

Also counts as a bit of DarkHumor: [[spoiler: as [[spoiler:As we hear Ludlow's final scream, the father Rex lets out an approving growl, as if to say, say "That's my boy..."]]



* The Genesis games SEGA screen. It's basically the ''T. Rex'' sprite (we only ever see one from the shoulders up) in front of a black background with the SEGA logo above him, and he roars "SEGA!!!".
** The actual game as Grant. Limited ammo. Dinosaurs at every turn, who 9 times out of 10 want to eat you. ''Velociraptors'' who, in addition to being pretty deadly and agile, actually ''learn from your playing style'' and can actually duck to avoid your shots. And let's not forget the ''T. rex'', who always appears poking her head out of a hole in the wall and fiercely snaps her jaws in your direction, and can kill you with a single chomp (not to mention she has one of the most impressive dinosaur roars ever made). Her introduction in the Power Station is easily her scariest appearance, as you don't actually see her at first; just some cracks in the wall and a foreboding stomping sound. Get close (which you have to do to exit the level), and CRASH. HUUURAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR!!!

*** Or, knowing the crafty bastards the raptors are, maybe he did get into the elevator in time...Only for one to jump in and rip him apart from the ceiling. [[NothingIsScarier Really, NOT knowing what exactly happened is probably the worst thing]].
* In Rampage Edition, the last level. [[spoiler: It starts with Grant on a boat in a river, with nothing else in sight. If you've read the manual, you know the ''T. rex'' is waiting for you. If you haven't... well... you're not going to enjoy what comes next.]] [[HellIsThatNoise And then there's]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iD0CYPlMRpU the music.]]
* Even scarier is the Sega CD version. (Sort of) free roaming, very limited ammo, a time limit (in the form of a plane piloted by a living NightmareFuel), and really, very spooky ambiance. Including the ground ''physically shaking'' as a ''T. rex'' approaches from god-knows-where for a tasty snack. And it's all in first-person view, so you see ''exactly'' what your character is seeing when said ''T. rex'' devours him.
* The {{SNES}} version had First Person parts inside the buildings.. Where random dino growls were to unnerve you even if the rooms were empty! Not to mention that outside that Raptors could jump out from anywhere from bushes and thickets and the ''T. rex'' was an [[ImplacableMan Implacable Dino]]! Okay, so you're walking around on top of a building (for example, the Visitor's Center). There might be some compies and a dilo or two, but at least you don't have to deal with any rapto-''they can jump up on the roof!''

* The ThreeDO version is just a minigame collection--nothing scary there, right? Oh wait, there's one game where you're wandering around a nearly pitch-black series of hallways, trying to activate some fuses. You're being chased by ''Velociraptors''; should you run into one, you get a few seconds to contemplate your fate, and then the raptor flies right into the screen whilst shrieking. Oh yeah, and if that wasn't enough, your character lets out a horrified, blood-curdling scream. Better luck next time...
* ''VideoGame/JurassicParkIIIDinoDefender'' wasn't that bad.... until you die. Then you get treated to a horrifying image of the dinosaur charging you in first-person.

* The 1997 game, ''The Lost World: Jurassic Park'', which allows you to play both as humans and dinosaurs, have a very frightening [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zx9wQNdLAKE&feature=related intro for the Velociraptor section of the game]]. You're treated to about thirty seconds of footage from the viewpoint of a human being chased, and eventually captured, by raptors. He can't see them, but the players are treated to a graphical interface displaying their location, which shows not only the raptors gradually getting closer, but also more of them being revealed the closer they get. In addition to that, the fleeing human is communicating with someone over radio, and the fear in his voice is very evident. It's very unsettling trying to put yourself in his shoes.
* People may have considered ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTrespasser'' to be a less than stellar, but it could pull some genuinely terrifying moments sometimes. Raptors could sneak up on you and kill you from behind. Even if you do see them, the goofy controls meant it was difficult to aim and kill them. Running is often your best bet. And there are also scripted moments, like in [[spoiler: level 4's Diner]] where a dinosaur could spawn in behind you or push open a door. And finally, the ''T. rex''. There is no fighting the ''T. rex''. There is only sneaking by it, or distracting it. Unless you get a good head start, you will ''not'' outrun it.
* A somewhat obscure, rather mediocre ''Jurassic Park'' game called ''Jurassic Park: Warpath'' was a fighting game that allowed you to play as several movie and non-movie dinosaurs (including the then-unseen ''Spinosaurus''). These being dinosaurs, their attacks could be especially brutal. Among the most brutal were those of the ''Triceratops'' and ''Styracosaurus'', who would ''impale'' their enemies during their throw attacks, leaving the enemy dinosaur squirming on the ends of their horns until they were thrown to the ground. Every attack also left some pretty nasty wounds, including some which would do things like leave bones exposed to the open air. Finally, the way to regenerate health would be to catch little running creatures and kill them , but you did not not have to kill them right away. Until you hit an attack button, you could [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential leave a squirming compy, dog or]] ''[[VideoGameCrueltyPotential human being]]'' [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential in the jaws of a giant carnivore or impaled on the spike of an equally huge herbivore]] until it was finally swallowed whole or stomped to death.
* Even the ''Lost World'' arcade game had its moments. Namely, the fight with the ''Carnotaurus''. Imagine, if you will, a dinosaur slightly smaller than a ''T. rex'' that [[InvisibilityCloak could turn completely invisible]] out for your blood. The fact that it looks like a giant Jackson's chameleon will either act as NightmareRetardant or make it even ''worse''.
* The most recent game from TelltaleGames is full of nightmare fuel, and is perhaps the most horror-themed out of any of the Jurassic Park media. See NightmareFuel/JurassicParkTheGame for examples.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moQuK9XZFBU This intro]] for NES version had low tense music showing logos for the company and the title of the game then it cuts to the black screen with nothing on it. The eyes of the T-Rex suddenly comes up blinking at the player then he slowly rises up until it's head is fully on screen it's eyes grew wide and suddenly roars at the viewer! Probably causing players to jump and run away from the screen after that even worse for younger players, showing the menu in it's red mouth while salvia drips from it's teeth. Thankfully though, it plays cool retro music when it's shows the menu in his mouth.
