Having first heard whispers about GRIZZLY 2: THE CONCERT, and only that it "starred" Laura Dern, Charlie Sheen, and George Clooney, I was interested to see these actors together in their earliest roles. Tracking down a version of this lost "film", made from the fragments available, I watched eagerly. WOW! What a marvel did unfold! The aforementioned actors had near-microscopic parts, in which they play monsterbear fodder. There are other victims roaming through the woods, awaiting their collective doom as well, including a group of wonderfully vicious poachers! These guys would fit right in w/ those heinous backwoodsmen from DELIVERANCE! Aside from these distractions, the bulk of G2:TC consists of the title event being performed in the same park terrorized by the ferocious fur ball. Said "concert", overseen by a particularly cranky Louise Fletcher, is certainly a spectacle! Combining the most synthetic elements of -that era's- MTV and DANCE FEVER, this is more like an overlong, 80's exercise video. The lethargic singers / dancers appear lost on stage, wondering where Deney Terrio might have gone. Meanwhile, wild-eyed hunter / gatherer, John Rhys-Davies lumbers about, looking for the titular creature. It all ends in an explosive non-finale of madness and spandex. Alas, this movie is sooo ethereally godawful, that it will probably never be finished. This is an enormous blow, since it could very well have been the ultimate mega-schlock masterpiece! My tears flow freely, now...
