Summary: We've seen many films in which dinosaurs are brought back from extinction to bring havoc upon the modern day. But what if there was a step missing in the process? What if you do get your dinos...minus the skin? There are equal parts lost and gained opportunities.

History: The quaint little town of Mill City, USA is in trouble. A university is going to be built there, but it entails bulldozing more than half the area, desecrating the Native American heritage of it. Among that heritage is Dakota, who's so angered by how callous it all seems that he incites a ritual to bring forth three spirits from the dead and have them inherit the local dinosaur fossils and one pterosaur fossil. Unfortunately, the reanimated skeletons start to kill anyone in their path, and it isn't long before Dakota realizes that a plan this reckless was bound to end in disaster.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After the skeletons merge into a larger form, the survivors lure the monstrosity into an electrical trap that dispels the spirits and renders the bones immobile. The day is saved.

Powers/Abilities: If the bones are put out of place, the spirits will put them back together. If need be, they can even combine with one another for greater power.

Weakness: Electricity prevents the spirits from holding the bones in place.

Scariness Factor: 3-The CGI is, as usual, bad for a Syfy movie. Even worse is how whenever the dinosaurs attempt to eat anyone, they just pass through. That doesn't stop them from killing nonetheless. Even a bony being can rip you apart. And when they combine, while it looks a bit disorganized, you'd best run for the hills.

Trivia: -This was the film debut of Emilia Clarke. Yes, Emilia "Daenerys" Clarke. One of the most recognized actors of the decade started off being terrorized by literal living fossils and pretending to be Native American. Let that all sink in.

-Despite taking place in the U.S, this film was done in Bulgaria.

Quite a rowdy hitchhiker.

Not the best place for them to go out into the woods for some alone time.
