A genetically manipulated and very hungry dinosaur escapes from a bioengineering company and reeks havoc on the local desert town. A security guard and a girl environmentalist try to stop both it and the company's doomsday bioweapon.
In addition to the many characters named after birds, two of the principals are named after science fiction writers. Dr. Jane Tiptree (Diane Ladd) - James Tiptree Jr. (the pen name of author Alice Bradley Sheldon) and 'Doc' Smith (Raphael Sbarge) - Edward E. Smith (Known as "Doc").
The last thing we need is a biotech panic about chickens!
In the beginning of the movie when the people get killed inside the Jeep, there is blood all over the interior, but later, when the police are investigating the scene, there is noticeably less blood on the inside of the windows.
