** The Deinonychus effects in the first film were done with a mix of antimatronics and a hand puppet of all things. It looks less like a dinosaur attacking people and more like [[Franchise/TheMuppets Kermit the Frog]] going on a homicidal rampage.

Added DiffLines:

** In the the first film and novel a Deinonychus gets into and kills two teenagers in a van. Unlike in the novel however, where the creature is fully grown, the animal in the film starts as a baby and grows up throughout it. The attack occurs when it is still a juvenile, so the resulting scene is a critter the size of a schnauzer killing two people.

* {{Narm}}: Aside from the bad special effects in general, a character in ''Carnosaur 2'' attempts to box with a velociraptor. Really.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: In the raptors' case, you can immediately tell they are "men-in-rubber-suits". In the T-rex's case, it often appears to be stop-motion animation of someone playing with a T-rex toy.

** The T. rex in the Eden Formula, when it's not stock footage from Carnosaur 1 and 2, is rendered in CGI so terrible it makes the original Carnosaur look like Jurassic Park by comparison.
** Also from The Eden Formula, one scene has a villain hotwire a car and drive off with it. The scene of him driving is stock footage and the car in question suddenly has two passengers!

* OlderThanTheyThink: This book had some key elements that JurassicPark would later bring to the public conciousness several years before it came out. Namely, dinosaurs are portrayed as bird-like, quick, and intelligent instead of lumbering cold blooded brutes.

* GeniusBonus: The novel discusses atavistic fear a few times. The conceit being that because primitive mammals learned to stay away from giant reptiles, the smells and sounds they make reawaken survival instincts in humans. Similar theories are put forth in RealLife about why nails on a chalk board or sirens causes unease (IE that they sound like the calls of predators that hunted or ancestors while they were still small.)
