    Classic dinosaur storytelling that is scary as you can get!

    Dinosaurs were some of the most magnificent creatures to roam the Earth, and lived during the Mesozoic era about 65-230 million years ago. With the power of cinema these magnificent beasts can still live on and please audiences for centuries. Jurassic Park is the story of three doctors who study at a theme park that is home to cloned dinosaurs. Technically not every species is from the Jurassic era. You have some Cretaceous and Triassic cold-blooded buddies running around as well. When the doctors continue their study on the life of the creatures, a strong power-outage is caused due to weather, and this causes many creatures to roam free outside of their controlled boundaries. And yes this means Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptors too, which causes intense horror scenes involving being eye to eye, hiding, and chased for food. The film has very realistic dinosaurs, and for 1993, the effects are miraculous. It would be very difficult for a special effects team to create visually re-mastered dinosaurs that match the iconic physiology of the ones Steven Spielberg and his team have created. Every dinosaur is focused on in different ways. Some show the beauty these creatures have, others show the power and terror they are capable of causing. The horror isn't overdone or disturbing at all, which is why the scenes are scary! The shock value and mystery Spielberg adds is similar to how he did the shark in 'Jaws.' He makes the creatures suspicious and elusive before popping out and scaring the heck out of us. The classic scenes in which the T-Rex chases the car before stopping his way in causing the glass of water to shake and attacking the car like it was a raw piece of meat are cinematic beauty. Spielberg has created a film full of science, wonder, visual beauty, and terror that is made in wondrous ways technically, and will provide pure entertainment for centuries.
