Nostalgic 70's Horror
23 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this in the theater when I was in the 3rd grade. At that age it made a big impression on me. The bear was ominous, frightening and powerful. Yes it was sort of a ripoff on 'Jaws'. But it still worked in its own way. It featured some taut actions scenes, and a gloomy style all its own. I watched it on late night TV many years later and still enjoyed it. Yea, it is a bit corny and lame for today's standards. But for me it's a trip down memory lane, and like all those other Horror movie aficionados, it has that 1970's charm that so few people appreciate. If I saw 'Grizzly' on TBS or some other network, I would assuredly watch it again.
