Animation Outtakes from the Lost World (extra on The Lost World DVD (Image Entertainment, 2001)). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

These are outtakes of the stop-motion animated dinosaurs featured in the 20s movie The Lost World. These were animated by Willis O’Brien, and he had a talent for making his creatures seem like real characters rather than special effects. The dinosaurs, though rather stiffly animated at times, have a real charm to them, so these outtakes are fun to watch. I especially liked seeing more footage of the mama triceratops and her baby. Included are brief moments where you can see the animators moving the models, increasing the historical value of the clips, which are beautifully restored. A great extra to include with The Lost World.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
