Fry up some chicken, because Carnosaur is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.
Review in a Nutshell: Carnosaur is a gruesome, low-budget, Roger Corman-produced Jurassic Park knock-off. Katherin does not appreciate its many rich, deep layers of nuance and social commentary.
I’m sure CARNOSAUR has levels of Corman’s shovel-to-the-face “subtlety” that will make THE LOVE GURU seem deep by comparison, Paul….
Greetings, green brother. Om nom nom.
Surprised there was no mention of “Humanoids From The Deep” when discussing the egg-birthing scenes, since I know Katherin was present during that podcast.
I actually spared Katherin that. I did Humanoids from the Deep with Mike Dent.
I must misremembering the Galaxy Of Terror podcast instead of that, then. I know the “Roger Corman is a horrific filmmaker” being brought up in both of those.
Katherin – I think you’re missing the point on what Corman does. I doubt he personally cares one way or the other about “gooshy shit” – except in how it makes the films he produces and directs salable as an exploitation movie. That – and naked women running around, which he’s also big on.
If you read any books about the man, you’ll realize Roger Corman is this uneasy balance of a serious film lover (with the desire to be taken seriously as a filmmaker himself) with a savvy businessman who aims for the Cheapest and Cheesiest…because that’s what he knows will sell globally. He made a few attempts in the Sixties to make more “serious” films (you might actually find THE INTRUDER, a film about desegregation in a Southern town and a professional agitator played by William Shatner who tries to stir up race hate, interesting – also MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH, which wears his love for Ingmar Bergman on its sleeve), but those were generally his least successful work – so he went back to doing what he knew sold, horror, cheap SF, biker and sexploitation movies.
