“Flinging ideas at a concrete wall”

Films: Tammy and the T.Rex (1994)

Alias: None

Type: Man-Made

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of a truck.

Affiliation: Good

Summary: Upon seeing the cover for that film, you might be thinking that this is a pleasant take on the "dinosaur rampages in the modern age" story. You'd be wrong. It's so much more insane. Prepare to have your will tested.

History: Get this. There is a mad scientist. He has a robotic Tyrannosaurus Rex. And he wants to put a human brain in it. Why? Who knows. Point is, a hapless teen named Michael just got put in critical condition after getting mauled by lions at a nature park. Still with us? Michael gets his brain put into the cybernetic dinosaur, but breaks loose so that he can be reunited with his sweetheart, Tammy.

Notable Kills: Nothing special

Final Fate: After killing his creator, Michael is fired upon and killed by the police. However, Tammy manages to get his brain out in time so that she can connect him to a computer for the time being. It began weird, so why shouldn't it end so?

Powers/Abilities: Somehow making his arms long enough to grasp things.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 1.5-A little voice inside of us is saying that they intentionally made this T-Rex a robot so to hide how painfully obvious it is that it's a stiff, mechanical prop you'd see at a slightly less second-rate museum. Also, those goddamn arms just make us scratch our heads and wonder what possessed them to make this film in the first place.

Trivia: -Director Stewart Raffill started this film upon seeing and instantly borrowing an animatronic T-Rex heading for Texas, regardless as to whether he had a story for it or not. Due to having only two weeks to use it, he wrote the script in a week.

-There were some violent scenes in this film, but due to the filmmakers wanting a PG-13 rating, you can only find those scenes in the Italian cut.
