As a drive-in-level guilty pleasure of the most obvious and brainless variety, Grizzly is quite a bit of good, campy fun.

A serviceable Jaws ripoff that was perfect '70s drive-in fare.

Audience Reviews for Grizzly

Grizzly has got the reputation of being one of the first of many Jaws rip offs. This tale of nature gone wild is one enjoyable horror film. If you can forget that this is a rip-off of Jaws, then you're sure to enjoy this awesome horror film. Grizzly is one of those Cult films that you're just happy to rediscover. Though it was inspired by Jaws, Grizzly is gem of a film. The acting is pretty good considering that this is a low budget film, and the bear attacks are quite impressive too. What I like about the film is that they used a live bear to make the film. Grizzly felt very realistic. I really enjoyed the blood and gore. I felt that Grizzly is very underrated. Yes, it is a rip off of Jaws, but that doesn't mean it's a bad film. The film quite good and it's a very impressive film with a good enough, but predictable plot. In the end, does it really matter? The Grizzly keeps the body bags full, and there's plenty of carnage on-screen to appeal to horror fans. Grizzly is also one of the better Jaws rip offs along with Piranha. Some people have said that the acting was awful, and the dialogue was bad, but I actually found the performances and dialogue to be quite good. The star of this film is of course, the bear. Grizzly is a fun, entertaining film that delivers good chills and a good time. For a Jaws rip-off, this is a great, obscured gem that Cult horror fans will relish.

Another in the long line of 'so good it's bad' movies, this complete and utter Jaws echo is about as much fun as you could hope for from a killer grizzly bear movie. The highlight of the thing for me would be the bear decapitating a horse. I laughed extremely hard at that. The whole thing is cliche'd, over the top and just horrible - but damn is it entertaining. If you sit back and try not to take this seriously, you'll have a good time.

Jaws with a bear (complete with exploding antagonist finale) except not nearly well as acted, directed, written or executed.
