View Full Version : Rhedosaur in "Planet of Dinosaurs" (1978)
December 13th, 2003, 12:43 PM
Near the end of the film, when Lee (the captain) is running from the T-Rex, Lee becomes trapped between the Rex and a smaller lizard-like monster on a cliff face (the Rhedosaur).
I happened to find this pretty cool. I'm not sure if it's the original prop, or a new one, though. If someone could confirm that...

In fact, I found some images of it.

The third picture is a totally different creature, I think. The color scheme is different than the version in the movie. Maybe it was a maquette for it. It could also possibly be the amazingly similar Allosaurus (?) seen in the film. http://www.rodansroost.com/ikonboard/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif

I have both those films, but the Rhedosaurus is not a real dino, that may be a tribute to it like in the movie Kraa, Kraa steps on a plaque that says Godzilla.

Yeah, that thing's cool, I saw the movie...
Too bad all they made him do is get annihilated by that gay t-rex!!! >_<

Yep, that's pretty cool. I mentioned it in my DMI review of PoD (http://www.digitalmonsterisland.com/planet_of_dinos.html).

Yes. The humans kill it at the end by impaling it.

Yes, between the T-Rex and the Stegosaurus and another between the T-Rex and Rhedosaurus.

is that suppose to be the same species of Rhedosaurus like in the Beast from 20,000?
December 19th, 2003, 11:15 PM
If there even are different species, I'd highly doubt it. This one was rather weak, considering he got his butt handed to him on a silver platerr by the T-Rex. Also he looked less vicious and rancorous, while The Beast obviously didn't. Not to mention he was more of a chestnut color, and he was waaaaaaay smaller.

Is there a giant spider in a brief scene of this movie?

Roughly twice a normal spider's size, so yeah.
December 27th, 2003, 10:52 PM
Yeah, I own this movie. It's rather entertaining, even though it's not very good.
And that is definitly not the same model at the Rhedosaurus one in BFTTF.

There was a 1992 movie called Galaxy of the Dinosaurs that swiped effects footage from Planet. I wonder if the Rhedosaur appeared in that one, too...

<font color='#000F22'>man I want this movie...

I've never seen that movie before, so I can't tell you, but I know the film "The Phantom Empire" (1986) has footage of the Rhedosaur/Tyrannosaurus fight.

I think it was meant to be a tribute and nothing more, but maybe it is possible that doing so kind of snuck the Beast From 20,000 Fathoms into their story and this fictional monster is living on this alien planet.

Yeah that poor, small Rhedosaur got munche dby the T Rex.
If it wer ehte one from THe Beast of @,000 Fanthoms.. THat T Rex would be th eone getting munched.
