Format: DVD
Grizzly is directed by William Girdler, written by Harvey Flaxman & David Sheldon and stars Christopher George, Andrew Prine & Richard Jaeckel. Story sees a giant Grizzly Bear terrorise campers and hikers at a state park. The head park ranger sets about capturing and killing the beast but he's met with resistance from his superior and troubled by the number of glory hunting hunters who descend upon the park.

If you pardon the pun, Grizzly was a monster surprise hit of 1976. Made for a paltry $750,000, it went on to make over $39 million Worldwide. It may well be a "Jaws" coat tail hanging copycat (and it unashamedly is), but credit where credit is due, William Girdler & David Sheldon spotted an opening in the market and got in there in a blaze of blood, grue and roaring ferocity. It was also one of the first of a number of "Jaws" knock offs, and while it's silly at times, and beset with bad acting, it is, however, one of the most popular and fun cult horrors of the 1970s. Filmed on location in Clayton, Georgia, Girdler's movie knows exactly what it's about. Keeping it relatively free of extraneous and expositional filler, Girdler knows (and so does the cast) that the bear is the star of the show; well more to the point, that the bear shredding and chomping down on humans is the star of the show. And so it goes, the humans-except for our hero protagonist (George) & wise sage naturalist (Jaeckel)-are annoying and lining up to be either bear lunch or to be proved wrong. And what fun it is. It's the sort of film that scared us to death as kids, and now makes us smile as adults.

The film has proved popular enough over the years to warrant a double disc DVD release. A release that wouldn't be out of place for some critical Oscar winning darling I might add!

This review is for the Shriek Show region 1 DVD so you will need a multi-region DVD player to see this. This film, like many others of its ilk came out soon after the success of Jaws. In this, we get all the cliches, the rogue monster, the innocent victims and the dedicated expert fighting an irresponsible authority.

Filmed around Clayton, Georgia, a natoinal park is being terrorised by a giant Grizzly that has turned man-eater. At first nobody accepts that a Grizzly could be in the area but as the killings continue, it is up to the park ranger, played by Christopher George, to track and kill the beast with the help of local allies.

This low-budget film actually did extemely well at the box office and became the top independent film of 1976. The acting could best be described as hammy and some of the scenes are unintentionally funny. Some of the the special effects are quite gory and could well have startled audiences back in 1976. To counter this, the aerial photography is superb and the forests of Georgia look spectacular in their autumnal hues.

Shriek Show has done a superb job in bringing this double-DVD to market. Disc one presents a remastered print in anamorphic widescreen of 2.35:1 with trailer and commentary. Disc two has a whole host of features; there is a promotional documentary, a featurette, photos and posters, opinions and Shriek Show trailers. This is how DVDs should be.

Okay first things first....
My Mother took me see this at the pics when I was 6...
It scared the hell outta me!!!

I have the UK quad poster and a set of German Lobby cards so I guess I'm a fan!!

For all of that Grizzly holds up pretty well.

Christopher George and Andrew Prine both give solid performances.
William Girdler directs well and with good creativity for the very modest budget he had.
The bear is great!!!
(After hearing how they got it to do things in the extras - It's a surprise nobody got eaten!!! Imagine that?? damn Bill - those are some good gore effects!!!)

IIf you enjoy this do look out for Day of the animals which I think is equally as good.

Overall - A worthy addition to the animals gone wild section of your DVD collection.

It's nowhere near as good as Jaws in the genre - but then again what is??
(Kingdom of spiders is my personal 2nd fave - Have you seen it? BUY IT NOW!)

Grizzly -a worth while movie and one that I will always have a soft spot for.

Thank you Mother.

!!!WARNING!THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN TERRIBLE BEAR PUNS!!!

Campers in a National Park are being killed and eaten by a bear. Naturalist and Bear Expert Arthur 'Scotty' Scott(Richard Jaeckel) is convinced it isnt one of the parks resident bears, but a Grizzly of prehistoric size. Not only does Park Ranger Mike Kelly(Christopher George) have to contend with the bear attacks, but he also has to overcome thew obstacle of a power hungry, selfish Mayor, who won't supply the right resources at Kelly's disposal. Soon a dangerous hunt is underway to track and kill the giant beast, which is all the while killing again and again.
Lets just paws(groan!) for thought for a moment. In reviewing a previous DVD release by Video International, of Alfred Sole's Communion, I was highly critical of the quality of the DVD transfer. I've got to say that I'm a bit more tolerant towards this release. Firstly, the product review is a lot more honest now, saying video to DVD transfer in brackets after the title. Secondly, the audio and video are in sync, which wasnt the case with Communion. Apart from a few shaky scenes, the transfer is good. All in all, a DVD release that just about covers the bear(sorry!) necessities, even though we dont even get a menu screen, and theres no time to even scratch your balls before the film starts.
Anyway, moan out of the way, now onto the film. Superficially, it resembles another 70's monstermovie 'Snowbeast' in that we get here a lot of scenes shot from the Grizzly's POV. This was also the case with Bigfoot in 'Snowbeast'. Both films also contain a climatic hunt for the killer beast. Thats where the similarities end though. This is a far more exciting film, with better performances and no dreary romantic sub plot.
