Watch: Trailer for Found Footage Horror Thriller 'The Dinosaur Project'
There's been ghosts, super powered teens and giant monsters in found footage films, but now it's time for dinosaurs. Sid Bennett directs this horror adventure that makes dinosaurs deadly for the first time since Jurassic Park. In the film a father and son embark on an expedition in the Congo with a TV documentary crew in tow. The Dinosaur Project is the recovered footage showing stunning images of dinosaurs thought to be extinct for 65 million years. It sounds like John Hammond's creations are on the loose again! Honestly, this sounds interesting, but it looks a little hokey. It seems like the idea just wasn't executed well.
Here's the trailer for SId Bennett's The Dinosaur Project from IGN:
Sid Bennett directs and The Dinosaur Project and co-writes the film with Jay Basu. Brace yourself for a chilling ride through the depths of the Congo jungle as a film crew discovers (to their peril) that dinosaurs are not extinct. African fishermen find an orange backpack floating gently on the water. They are astonished to discover a waterproof container inside, full of videotapes. Flash back to London and the announcement by crypto-zoologist Jonathan Marchant of his expedition to find Mokele Mbembe, a legendary dinosaur rumored to inhabit the Congo River. The film hits UK theaters on August 10th and everywhere else later.
