Every day for the month of October I am watching and reviewing a horror movie that I haven’t seen before. Here’s today’s:
William Girdler, United States, 1976
I imagine this movie was birthed by a 1970’s coke-addled studio executive screaming, “I want JAWS but on land!”
Take JAWS and replicate every plot point with zero talent and you get GRIZZLY. This movie is bad. Like, really bad. The acting, the directing, the setting – pretty much everything is bad. And it commits the cardinal sin of movies – it gets really boring.
I suspect if it wasn’t for the amazing movie poster art by comic book legend Neil Adams, this movie would be completely forgotten. And rightfully so.
