the Mother of all Animal Shockumentaries
30 December 2004 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

With apologies to the inimitable Claude Rains, I am shocked, *shocked* to find no previous comments! This three-part special marked the beginning of the televised animal shockumentary genre that continues to this day, and should be of particular interest as such. The late Robert Urich maintained a cool, even demeanour as its host, beginning the show with the warning, "The following program contains graphic footage of animals attacking humans." With a brief, conversational comment and a minimum of sensationalism he introduces each film clip, some of them home movies and some being professionally-shot (but unplanned) footage, of a variety of animal attacks on people in various situations; often he will punctuate the events as they unfold with a calm narrative. Over the course of the three shows, the animals involved include everything from ordinary household pets to fighting bulls to elephants, lions, and bears. This is classic television that should not be overlooked by students of shock film.
