Hammond (Richard Attenborough) has cloned dinosaurs from DNA captured in amber and created a theme park on an island. Before he opens to the public, he does a test run with several experts including Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie (Laura Dern) and Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), along with his two grandkids. Unsurprisingly, things don’t go to plan.
I remember seeing this in the cinema back in 1993 and I was petrified. I’m not great with scary films, and I had an unopened Chupa Chup which I dropped during the trailers and whenever things got too scary for me, I’d get on the floor and go hunting for it. Re-watching it on the TV recently, I can totally see why. In particular, the kitchen scene. Oh my goodness.
