Raptor (also known as Carnosaur 4: Raptor) is a 2001 direct-to-video horror film directed by Jim Wynorski. It often reuses stock footage from the three Carnosaur films and follows the same basic premise of cloned dinosaurs running amok.[1] It is the unofficial sequel to Carnosaur 3: Primal Species.


When a series of unexplained vicious animal attacks strikes his community, Sheriff Jim Tanner and his assistant Barbara trace them back to a Dr. Hyde, a former military researcher whose government funding for a dinosaur cloning project was cut.[2] When the Pentagon discovers Hyde obtained foreign backing to continue his experiments, they send in a strike team to save Tanner and Barbara and stop Hyde.



Like the previous Carnosaur films, Raptor received generally negative reviews. It holds a rating of 2.6/10 on IMDb as well as a "rotten" rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes of 19%.[3]
