* TheyJustDidntCare: in regards to actually adapting the novel, they obviously didn't. Besides the premise of reviving dinosaurs by modifying chicken cells, the only thing the movie has in common with the novel is the first name of a major villain.

*CompleteMonster: [[MadScientist Dr. Jane Tiptree]] from the original is an amoral geneticist seeking to eradicate humanity to return Earth to a series of artificially-engineered dinosaurs. Tiptree, [[MisanthropeSupreme believing humanity to be a "disaster"]], creates a virus to forcibly impregnate human females with raptors, causing them to give birth to the specimens in a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath painful and eventually fatal manner]]. This virus is unleashed on [[BadBoss her own subordinates]], the surrounding countryside, and eventually herself, with the ultimate goal of this to [[{{Gendercide}} kill off every human female]] and starve out the rest of the male population. Tiptree's experiments in breeding raptors lead to one of her specimens prematurely breaking loose and going on a rampage in which dozens are killed, while Tiptree coldly has the father of someone who's daughter was killed by her creations killed off by a tyrannosaur. Though Tiptree is [[FauxAffablyEvil soft-spoken and amicable]], ultimately she's little more than an omnicidal misanthrope who seeks to wipe out mankind based on her own delusions.

* AdaptationDisplacement: There's a book. That's right, there is a book called ''Carnosaur''.
** And its author loves the movies, but in a SoBadItsGood sort of way.
** The book even predates ''Literature/JurassicPark''.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Polcheck in ''Carnosaur 3''.

** Sarah Rawlins' death in the second film is extremely [[Gorn graphic]] visually. But turn the video off and just listen to the audio it... sounds like the Raptor is doing something else R rated to her.

** 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.
