United Kingdom Grizzly (1976) UK 88Films

88 Films are releasing this on 14th May in the UK. There was no thread for this release of the film so I thought I'd start one. It doesn't appear there are any extras included with this release but it's a reasonable price and I'm assuming that it is the same transfer that Scorpion put out for their limited release in the US.

I don't know if they will include the filtered and unfiltered versions on this disc or whether any further work has been done with the transfer but I have pre-ordered anyway. This is one of those films that is a guilty pleasure for me as I saw it originally in theatres when it first came out. I was 9 at the time and as a 9 year old I couldn't see it with those critical adult eyes of today so it's definitely just a nostalgia trip. Good memories and all that. It's pretty cheesy and silly I suppose but I still get a kick out of it just for the pure hell of it. Will be interested to see how it looks when released as the only other version I ever owned of this was the 2 disc Shriek DVD from several years ago. In any case, it's good for a laugh.

I've always loved Grizzly. Like you I saw it at the cinema when I was a kid (IIRC it was on a double bill with Drive-In). My mother would take me to see monster movies while my dad took my brother to see Swiss Family Robinson ones

Looking forward to this release. I also have the Shriek Show DVD and the Scorpion BD but I'll be picking this one up as well.

Yeah, it was great seeing this first time around in a packed theatre. I think you're right about the double bill with Drive-In, but I honestly don't remember that film for some reason. I never wanted to see the family type movies so it was always my brother who took me to these kinds of films. My parents were never interested. Same with Jaws. I saw that first time around too (the year before) and it started my love of scary movies etc.

How is the Scorpion release version btw? Is it worth picking up also?

Reminds me of when I was 8(ish) and how my Gran would rent me the likes of Alien, Company of Wolves, Halloween and, erm, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes while my Dad would insist on something from the kid's/family section.
