“OK, so Jurassic Prey is badly made but that’s the charm of Mark Polonia’s work. Cameramen appear in glasses and are reflected in windows; the special effects are cheap yet effective; and there’s enough [creative] gore to keep horror fans entertained… It’s how the Polonia Brothers films have always been, right from their first, now cult-favourite, effort Splatter Farm.” Phil Wheat, Nerdly

“In the past, even when the budget fell short of the script’s ambitions the Polonias usually delivered a fun film, cheesy effects and all. This time it all falls flat. The crime story is weak and never builds any suspense and the dinosaur segments are equally dull. Characters go outside, wander around and get eaten. And amazingly nobody seems to notice that they’re gone…” Jim Morazzini, Rogue Cinema

“At just over an hour, Jurassic Prey is a brisk and enjoyable venture into modern-day regional filmmaking. Its flaws are obvious for all to see, but we could sit and debate the shortcomings of low budget filmmaking for an eternity. What IS important is the need to remove ourselves from the sterility and blandness of the majority of the movies that get placed before us…” Dave Wain, The Schlock Pit
