‘After 65 million years… the beast is back.’
Jurassic Predator is a 2018 British science fiction horror film directed by Andrew Jones (Robert the Doll and sequels; Werewolves of the Third Reich; Cabin 28; et al) from a screenplay co-written with Christian Sellers (Cheerleader Camp: To the Death). The North Bank Entertainment production stars Lee Bane, Richard Dee-Roberts and Jason Homewood.

Scientists working at a top-secret government research facility are conducting experiments to reanimate a dinosaur using prehistoric DNA. The scientists believe the experiment will lead to fame and fortune but instead, it leads to death and destruction when the terrifying T-Rex grows at an accelerated pace.

After rampaging through the research centre, the fearsome creature escapes into nearby Devil’s Creek. The government hires a squad of deadly mercenaries to lead a search and destroy mission. It’s man against the most vicious beast of all time – and neither will survive while the other is alive…

“First of all, there’s one Dino, and it’s in the film for about five total minutes of on-screen presents. So in a 70-minute film (not 82 minutes because of the 12-13 minutes of credits!) you only see this fake-ass T-Rex like five times, and it’s not even killed by the protagonist. What kind of bull sh*t is that?” Adryon Thomas

” …like the classic monster movies of yesteryear, no CGI is used here for the Tyrannosaurus Tyrant, just good old-fashioned puppeteering adding to the enjoyment, with the only downside of this being limited viewing of the beast and the knock-on effect it has on the actual kills scenes.” The B Club

“Ironically they lampooned themselves justly when they pretended a horror film was being made, and that emphasised the cheapness and the guy’s remarks were right, ‘what do you expect from a budget movie’…perhaps more seeing that it says this Andrew Jones keeps committing the same crime over and over…” D. Cowan

” …when it gets to the “Jurassic” elements, it’s kind of ridiculous. The dinosaur aspect of the story amounts to maybe 15 minutes of screentime before it resolves, next to nothing happens, there’s some posturing for an epilogue, and then 13 f***ing minutes of credits.” Dustin Baker

In the USA, Jurassic Predator was released on DVD via Sony on June 5, 2018. A British DVD release, via 4Digital Media, emerged on 22nd June 2018.
