If you don’t remember the original Jurassic park then you must be under 20-years-old. That also means you need to get on Netflix and Vudu and watch it right now. This movie for most of us changed a lot about movies. This is when things that we have never seen before looked so life like that it literally scared the crap out of us. That being said we compiled a few facts that we thought you would enjoy.
1. T-Rex was not just scary on screen but in the studio as well.
If you thought the T-Rex was scary could you image being on set with this monster animatronic? Producer Kathleen said: “We’d be, like, eating lunch, and all of a sudden a T-Rex would come alive. At first we didn’t know what was happening, and then we realized it was the rain. You’d hear people start screaming.”
2. No animals released!
I’m not sure if you noticed but Alan and Ellie had a sign that said: “No animal released without paperwork completely filled out” hanging in their trailer.
3. The voice of the velociraptors.
The noise used to convey the velociraptors talking to each other is actually the sound of tortoises having sex. Rydstrom spent months recording animal noises. Rydstrom’s work on Jurassic Park ended up winning him two Academy Awards.
4. Getting burned on the job.
Sam Neill injured himself with the flare he uses to distract the T. rex. According to Neill, “It dropped some burning phosphorous on me and got under my watch and took a chunk of my arm out.”
5. The screams were real!
The screams in this scene are genuine — the animatronic T. rex was not supposed to break the plexiglass.
