I have to admit that when I got a package with the movie Grizzly Park in it, I really expected another Sci Fi Channel ‘creature of the week’ type of movie. But, my apprehension vanished very quickly once the movie started!
Grizzly Park is the tale of eight troubled kids who are sent to help clean up a public camp ground, called (guess what?!) Grizzly Park. What they don’t know is that the officer who’s doing the driving is actually an escaped murderer. When they arrive at the park, the likeable Ranger Bob explains that the wildlife is not to be toyed with and off they happy little group goes into the deep woods to pick up trash spread by happy vacationers. Now, you might thing that the escaped killer is going to hunt them down and kill them, and that is his plan, until he runs across a large, angry, hungry grizzly bear. That’s where the whole movies takes a wild left turn, what appeared to be just another slasher movie becomes a wild-life gone berserk movie. Then, in an ending that made my jaw drop, it turns into something entirely different!
I’m giving Grizzly Park four out of four cigars, just for incorporating so many different genres into one movie and for surprising me, a long jaded horror movie aficionado! You can check it out for yourself by heading over to the Grizzly Park web page, I personally hope to see more of Ranger Bob and Grizzly Park in the future! So, until next time, when I’ll be hiking in the woods looking for nuts and berries, remember that the best movies are bad movies.
