Waldameer's "Pirate's Cove" & "Whacky Shack" -- both designed and built by Bill Tracy back in the early '70s. The videos are dark, so you'll have to use your imagination.

Don't know if you've done this yet Forest, but I've read the Carnosaur novel. The plot is much simpler, and less ambitious, than the film version. There's no chicken virus, or any virus that makes women pregnant with dinosaurs. It's just simple cloning done in the same vein as Jurassic Park, but with a crazy corporate asshole and his nymphomaniac wife being responsible for everything that goes wrong. That said, the dinosaur action is more entertaining in the novel than in the movie. And if the word "nymphomaniac" wasn't enough of a clue, there's also more sex scenes in the novel than in the movie.

And speaking of Nymphomaniac, I saw the director's cut of that film. During part 2, I figured what the theme is, the lesson the director was trying to get across. In order to discuss a topic properly, one has to be willing to get into the nitty gritty details, no matter how deplorable, unappealing, and controversial it may be. The film was basically about the topics of sex, but the lesson can apply to just about everything. With that being said, it was rough getting through that abortion scene. One of the few moments in film that made me cringe and turn away from the screen for a couple brief moments.

One last thing, since at least one of you enjoys plays. Have you guys ever considered going Shakespearean on us for a day? 'Cause I know of 1 Shakespeare film that is worthy of Slaughterfilm. Titus. That has some messed up stuff in it, particularly in the middle when that woman gets her tongue and hands cut off, and has her hands replaced with twigs that get jammed into her arms where her hands were once at. If that ain't fucked up, I don't know what is. Plus, there's the finale, where Shakespeare pulled a twist before Sweeny Todd could take credit for it.
