Prehistoric animals and people appearing in the present
Most of the time things come and go as expected and the world evolves. But every once and a while something out of place appears. These movies revolve around a plot where something, or some one, from the past (very distant past) pops up in the present. It's usually a dinosaur, but sometimes a caveman makes it through. (Just once I'd like to see a prehistoric cow make it through) -
