3 On A Meathook and Asylum Of Satan, Grizzly is by far his most polished film and really goes to prove what the director was capable of.
Christopher George (Pieces, The Exterminator, City Of The Living Dead) plays Kelly. Yep that's right his name is Kelly but he ain't no bitch. Kelly is a park ranger with a serious problem on his hands. When two pretty young girls turn up ripped to shreds he believes it to be a 15 foot Grizzly Bear which is not native to the woods that he is in control of. Kelly rounds up his men and take to the forest in search of the killer bear but he is always a step behind.
nature gone wrong flick called Day Of The Animals also known as Something Is Out There but it just doesn't compare to the epic blood-bath that is Grizzly. Still true Girdler fans can't pass it up!
Grizzly caught a lot of flack from reviewers and critics upon its release. Most called it a Jaws ripoff. Some were witty enough to coin it as "Jaws With Claws" but this is of course a bit ridiculous. Yes there are similarities between the two films but did anybody accuse Steven Spielberg of ripping off Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds? Or Frogs or any of the other countless killer animals movies that came first. Of course not. Ripoff or not, I will take Grizzly any day over Jaws. Its the slasher flick of all killer animals movies and the only reason critics were so harsh on it is because the it came out right after the release of the giant budgeted Jaws.
