Grizzly 2: The Predator (1987)

aka Grizzly II: The Concert

How bad is it? It has some problems, but it's a typical animal attack flick.
Should you see it? There's no legal way to watch it at the moment, so... yeah.

Never released, due to legal problems (the original film was in bankruptcy and the versions currently available all have bootlegged music), this film will always attract people because of the cast of people who would become famous. George Clooney, Charlie Sheen and Laura Dern are in a scene together! The film also has deborah Raffin, John Rhys-Davies, Louise Fletcher, Ian McNeice, Richard Jaeckel and Andrew Prine. The cinematography was by Laszlo Kovacs, who made dozens of cheap films look amazing. The concert, which takes up most of the film, is not good and it appears the 14 foot animatronic bear starts a fire at it and survives getting shot. The film was not finished and the rough cut includes the director audibly giving direction. The original Grizzly was a surprisingly watchable campy film and this one is very much like it.
