Grizzly Park fails to fulfill its original purpose as horror film, so if you're looking for a scare, don't waste your time. That is not to say that it's not worth seeing. The only major redeeming quality this film has is it's variety of stereotype characters (and I'm not using stereotypical as a bad thing here) and their interactions, which was interesting to watch. These interactions are still undeveloped and had the movie not been distracted with trying to be horrific, it would have been a great drama about eight unflinchingly rotten youths with different backgrounds who get what's coming to them.

There is no character development; everyone stays the same until the end, but the versatility of the characters makes up for that. I liked that there were no sudden bouts of "courage" which is a generic element found in a lot of other horror movies. The characters die unrepentant, which I think is a noble trait for a villain to have.

Other than that, the props look fake, the directing is mediocre, the acting is decent, and the dialog is OK with some good witticism here and there. A major problem with the writing is as all the other reviews point out, the undeveloped subplot of the escaped murderer/rapist which makes you wonder why it was included in the writing in the first place.

Bottom line, on a scale of one to ten for a horror movie I'd give this film a one, and for a morbid drama I'd give it a seven.
