After a wait of 37 years, horror sequel, Grizzly II: Revenge is finally gearing-up for release. The never completed sequel to the 1976 horror film Grizzly was filming in Hungary in 1983 when the project fell apart after one of the money men walked away. Principal photography continued, including a Woodstock-style concert featuring an audience of 40,000, but key elements were never finished…until now.
After years of legal wrangles, the film was ‘re-erected’ by producer Suzanne C. Nagy and it will finally see the light of day when it is released by Gravitas Ventures in select cinemas and video on demand on 8 January 2020.
Movies In Focus caught Grizzly II: Revenge back in May 2019, calling it ‘a perfect film to watch late on a Saturday night. It’s fun, breezy and entertaining.’ The film gets off to an attention grabbing start when George Clooney, Laura Dern and Charlie Sheen get eaten by a 15 foot grizzly bear in the opening moments of the film.
