In 1960, a new dinosaur film came around. This film was called Dinosaurus!. This color film combined stop-motion animation with dinosaur hand puppets successfully. This film is about an island where depth charges were being to help build a harbor, when a frozen tomb is found. Two dinosaurs, a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Brachiosaur are found under the water. They are both brought up on land for observation. But the night is stormy and rainy. Lightining flashes across the sky and strikes the two prehistoric beasts, awakening them from their slumber! A neanderthal is also found but kept hidden from the men. Eventually the two dinosaurs battle and the T-Rex ends up victorius! Though the opponent escapes, it is soon taken by quick-sand and dies. In the end the T-Rex is knocked ovcer a cliff back into the sea, ending his deadly reign.
There also was a comic released about this film that I have very little information on. This film was released on VHS and also came to DVD from Image, but it is sadly OOP. This is a great popcorn flick and is recomended for a quick viewing.
