All these years later, the T-Rex attack in Jurassic Park is one of those scenes that still sticks with you. So, what made the segment so memorable — and why did that T-Rex change the face of filmmaking forever?

Cinefix has put together an excellent Art of the Scene segment exploring the legacy of Jurassic Park in the world of visual effects, and how it set a new bar that changed blockbuster filmmaking forever. They also look at how they figured out how a dinosaur might move and react, by looking at other animals in the modern day.

But, this mini-doc goes deeper than that, breaking that scene down point by point to explain exactly why its so terrifying, so breathtaking, that it’s probably the one scene you still remember verbatim — even if you haven’t seen the movie in a decade or so.

If you’ve ever wondered how one of Spielberg’s greatest moments was made, take a look:
