Grizzly is a dreary film. The photography and colour processing are atrocious and William Girdlers direction drab and completely without interest, involvement, pace or, heaven forbid, anything resembling style. For the most part, the grizzly is represented by point-of-view shots that give the impression it is twenty feet tall, something that makes the actual revelation of an ordinary-sized bear somewhat laughable. Even considering that it was twenty-feet in height the reality is that bears dont stalk on their hind legs.
William Girdlers other genre films include:- the occult film Asylum of Satan (1972), the psycho film Three on a Meathook (1972), the Blaxploitation exorcism film Abby (1974), the animals attack film Day of the Animals (1977) and the great The Manitou (1978). Girdlers career was ended in 1978 when he was killed in a helicopter crash while location scouting for his next film.
Grizzly II: Predator/Predator: The Concert is a sequel that was made in 1985 featuring a young George Clooney, although remains uncompleted except in bootleg workprint form.
