Films: A Sound of Thunder (2005)
Alias: Allosaurus, man-eating beetles, baboon lizards, giant bats, giant lungfish, evolved human
Type: Ancient (Allosaurus), Mutant (the rest)
Location: Jungle/Civilized Area/Forest
Height/Weight: Ranges from that of goliath beetles to twice that of an elephant.
Summary: To those who have wanted to hunt dinosaurs all their lives...go and play "Turok" instead. Indeed, time travel is perhaps one of the worst things we could invest our time in. There are just so many rules to not screwing up the present. And when the rules are broken...
History: The year is 2055, and all of Earth's megafauna has been rendered extinct with mankind's excessive growth. Seeking the thrill of the hunt once more, we have created Time Safari, a getaway for rich folk to go hunt dinosaurs about to die anyway. Then one day, a guy steps off the path and onto a moth. This causes "time waves" to appear in the present, evolving many of Earth's lifeforms into mostly vicious unlikely predators. Some folks will have to literally race against time in order to undo the natural anarchy all around them.
Notable Kills: A bunch of baboon lizards take some time before they descend upon a guy in the middle of a hallucinogenic flight of fancy.
Final Fate: One guy manages to use the time machine again before the next time wave turns humans into catfish-looking things. He prevents the incident, and uses evidence to knock Time Safari down for how unethical it really is.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-The effects could be a LITTLE better, but how many times can you hear "baboon lizard" and find that those named that are actually quite terrifying? Sure, that lungfish is freaky with how unexpected it is, but almost every one of the aberrations created by the time waves deserves some credit.
Trivia: -This film was based on a famous short story of the same name by Ray Bradbury, though it only has the dinosaur encounter in it.
-This film's original director was Renny Harlin, but due to a disagreement with Bradbury himself, he was fired and replaced by Peter Hyams, the same director of "2010: The Year We Make Contact" and "The Relic".
