This movie actually scared me
13 November 2002 | by StreepFan126See all my reviews

I remember watching this film when I was about three years old the first time, and being scared to death. In fact, every time I watch this film a part of me gets a little scared at the thought of a giant grizzly terrorizing a farm.
