Trivia

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").

Danger in the forest
19 August 2004 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Although I haven't seen Claws for some time, I remember it rather well. I taped this from TV in the early hours on ITV, but unfortunately I taped over it after watching it and has not been on since.

In an Alaskan forest, some hunters wound a giant grizzly bear known as the Kustaka and it then goes round killing people, including a young boy who is camping with other children. An estranged couple then go out to look for it and kill it. The man does eventually track it down in a shed and then kills it successfully.

This movie is a remake of Grizzly, which was made the year before this in 1976. I have never seen that one.

I enjoyed watching this movie and hope it comes on TV again soon.

Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
