Before the screening: Jurassic Cosplay Contest

When a very young Paul Walker falls into a coma after being attacked by a lion (!), a mad scientist transplants his brain into that of a T-Rex robot – which in turn makes the robot come alive and try to win back his former (human) girlfriend. Tammy and the T-Rex gathered dust in the video stores in its family friendly cut released 1994. Luckily, the Academy Film Archive discovered the only 35mm print of the Gore-Cut, in which the dinosaur crushes, rips apart, or eats people whole. The birth of a cult phenomenon and one of the most important film historical finds of all time, at least according to /slash.
