When an enormous, one ton grizzly bear begins killing and mauling outdoor enthusiasts protected state park, a local park ranger Michael Kelly, played perfectly by Christopher George, has to find the dreaded mutant monster bear and somehow stop it from its feeding frenzy on innocent campers.

But the mutant grizzly is not content with the usual leavings of campers, he wants the campers themselves to snack on. Chock full of blood and stacks of body parts this 70s shocker is a must own for creature horror fans.

I loved this movie as a kid and still enjoy watching it BUT, I recently bought the DVD and it is in FULL SCREEN format, and has A HORRIBLE TRANSFER PICTURE QUALITY.A movie that had such beautiful scenery is destroyed on this DVD. I played my VHS tape next to the DVD and actually thought my old VHS tape had a better picture quality and the tape is over 10 ears old. The compy that released it on DVD, called Nutech, should be called Notech because the transfer is the worst absolute DVD picture I have ever urchased. I pray this classic horror movie wil be re-released by a company that knows how to transfer the best possible picture. This DVD features what THEY CALL, an R Rated version. I played my old VHS side by side to the DVD version and SEEN NOTHING DIFFRENT. No extra gore or extra parts from the original. Besides that, I hated the picture quality so much on the DVD that I couldn't wait to finish watching it so I could return it to the store I bought it from.Shame such a good fun classic movie was destroyed for DVD. Why they bothered releasing it is beyond me. They must like ripping the public off. If they couldn't find a decent pcture to put on DVD they shouldn't of bothered. They (Nutech Company) knew the hard-core fans of this classic would buy it anyways. If I ever find another DVD made by Nutech then I will pass on it for sure.

last saw this movie in 1985 on VHS(the big thing) when I was fifteen. It was out in '76. The most disturbing two scenes I remember were the two girls who were the first victims. If you don't like graphix, don't even give this a try. If you are a morbid obsessive freak like me, go for it man! It is lacking in charm like most 70's B. S. but it is good on a different scale.

When I was a kid this movie really scared me, but my memories of Grizzly were amplified by my childhood imagination. While there are some tense moments in this film, the good points are overshadowed by the mediocre acting and poor film quality. The DVD tranfer isn't great. The film isn't very clear and sometimes the sound fades in and out. I would recommend this film only if you really like B movie horror flicks, in that sense I enjoyed its campy quality, and the bear footage isn't half bad.

I'm not sure what movie the viewers who gave this film five stars where watching, but it sure wasn't the one I saw. Maybe their reviews are based off a different rating system than the one here, like one that uses 20 stars...
While watching Grizzly (1976), one cannot help but notice how much the film 'borrows' from the extremely successful 1975 Spielberg movie Jaws. Unfortunately, director William Girdler is no Spielberg. The movie stars B actor Christopher George as Ranger Michael Kelly, who some may remember from TV's Rat Patrol, as Sgt. Sam Troy. Also starring is Richard Jaekel as a naturalist by the name of Arthur Scott. I best remember Jaekel from the Lee Marvin film, The Dirty Dozen (1967), and I felt quite sorry for him that his career has sunk to the point where he got stuck in this pile of a movie.
The film starts off with the brutal killing of two, comely young women in a national park. Limbs are torn, blood is shown, but the only thing we see of the attacker is a pretty phony looking paw groping the women. The now deceased women are found, examined by a coroner, who informs Ranger Kelly that the women where mauled by a bear, a big bear. This sets up the search for the bear, and also for the killing of some more people. Naturalist Arthur Scott, or Scotty, is called in from the woods, and he speaks of the bear being at least 15 feet tall and weighing between 2,000 to 3,000 pounds, based on the size and depth of the bear's paw print tracks, which he has examined.
Most of the film is the characters trying to find the bear, and the bear attacking and killing more people.

This movie was offered up as a Jaws clone but the actual story was written long before. Tweaking the movie to fit the Jaws theme seems to have made some unfortunate changes.
First we have a sub plot introduced when we first meet Joan McCall. Her character is a photographer and the daughter of the owner of a fine restaurant. The subplot involves the restaurant being on the verge of bankruptcy but it is dropped right after it is introduced.
Another scene is where a radio announcer's voice is heard issuing warnings about a killer bear and that backpackers are urged to leave the area. During the voice over we see a large group of backpackers running through the trees as if they were listening to the broadcast.
Unlike Jaws, which takes place in Amity, we have a nameless location for this movie. The entrance to the park merely says, "National Park Entrance".
The basis of the story is a little silly, that of a prehistoric grizzly (15 feet tall) getting a taste for people. An 11-foot modern grizzly was filmed for the movie, so there really was no reason to allude to a prehistoric origin. A 15-foot modern grizzly would have been just as scary.
So we have a big grizzly stalking territory not known for grizzlies (great whites have frequented the area where Jaws takes place). The park staff, only a small handful for a few million acres, has to stop the bear while management is worried about bad publicity.
In the end, rifles are apparently useless in stopping the beast so other, more Jaws-like, methods are used.
There is some nice forest footage and some of the tension is well done, but the characters seem to be lacking in emotion. For example, the second victim stumbles on the first just as she is killed. She looks for a few seconds then turns and runs. She makes no sound and exhibits no real terror, horror or even fear. Not very realistic.
This movie could have been done a lot better but it still works at some levels.
