Did You Know?


Was re-released in 1978 in Canada and Mexico as "Grizzly 2" in an effort to capitalize on the success of another similarly themed killer grizzly bear film a year before "Grizzly" (1976), which had performed exceptionally well worldwide. "Claws" is often times mistaken as the sequel to "Grizzly" because of its re-release title, but has no connection to the film, nor any connection to the real infamous lost sequel, "Predator: The Concert" (AKA: "Grizzly II: The Predator").

Okay CLAWS in which in GRIZZLY (1976) says that was a subtitle for the film for GRIZZLY. CLAWS is not as intense as GRIZZLY but to most people through the 70's they still think CLAWS is a true sequel to GRIZZLY. CLAWS is way different and no it is not the same story line as GRIZZLY, CLAWS is about a few hunters who are attacked by a grizzly bear and years later the bear goes on a killing spere. CLAWS is no follow up to GRIZZLY however Jason Evers does metion one of the characters in GRIZZLY Which is to believed to be Christopher George. CLAWS also has Leon Armes that late actor who died a few years later. CLAWS is a good film but I do not know who the director is, I have never heard of him before. Edward L. Montoro (Producer of GRIZZLY) later filmed a film in 1984 called GRIZZLY II THE PREDATOR that is the real unknown sequel to GRIZZLY which had Charlie Sheen and George Clooney in their big roles however the film was not released untill 1986.
