* The damn Tyrannosaurus Rex is [[UpToEleven even worse in the book than it is in the movie]]; unlike it's film counterpart [[AnimalNemesis this Rex is far more malicious]] and is [[AxCrazy intent on killing anything it sees]], even [[BloodLust abandoning a fresh kill at the prospect of more carnage]]. Remaining still won't save you for long [[ScarilyCompetentTracker as it will suspect your presence despite its impaired vision (thanks to its great sense of smell) and deliberately roars in your face to make you move]]. Trying to squeeze into a place where it can't reach won't save you either, as its tongue is long and flexible enough to drag you out from inside a car. Failing that, it can ''throw'' said car into the branches of a tree with such force and speed that from Grant's perspective the vehicle had simply ''vanished'' into thin air. [[SuperPersistentPredator Try to run, and it will track you across the entire park. Try to escape via raft, and it will swim after you. Stay on the river to travel faster and minimize your scent]], [[spoiler: and it will figure out where you're going, and be lying in wait for you at a waterfall]]. It's a chilling depiction of being hunted by a 7-ton predator who ''wants you dead''.
* Nedry [[spoiler:catches his own intestines. Before losing his head. Made even worse in that he had been recently blinded by the ''Dilophosaurus's'' venom, and he couldn't see where the dinosaur would attack as it came closer to him step by step]].

** [[spoiler:The Raptor breakout, due in no small part to how sudden and unexpected it was]]. Just when it looks like [[HopeSpot things might settle down and the Park may actually survive]], an alarm starts blaring that the ''auxiliary'' power is almost drained, and the park staff realize that the ''main'' power has been out since the storm. [[OhCrap Cue a cold, horrifying dread spreading through the survivors as they realize]] [[spoiler: the [[FailedASpotCheck raptors have had more than eight hours to escape without anyone realizing]].]] And then screams are heard in the distance...
