Two William Girdler Classics, GRIZZLY and DAY OF THE ANIMALS Coming 4/27 from SEVERIN FILMS
Less than a year after the release of Steven Spielberg’s shark blockbuster, director William Girdler (DAY OF THE ANIMALS) and infamous distributor Film Ventures International (GREAT WHITE) brazenly unleashed their own ‘JAWS with claws’ sensation that would become one of the most successful independent horror films in history. Christopher George (PIECES), Andrew Prine (BARN OF THE NAKED DEAD) and Richard Jaeckel (THE DARK) star in this “bloody, sexy and immortal trash classic” (Mondo Digital) about an 18-foot-tall ursus arctos horribilis on a carnivorous rampage through a state park full of campers, and the ranger, chopper pilot and naturalist who must stop it. GRIZZLY now roars with a 2K scan from the internegative plus Special Features produced exclusively for this edition.
DAY OF THE ANIMALS
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the wilderness, director William Girdler and producer Ed Montoro sought to top their surprise blockbuster GRIZZLY with a bigger budget, larger cast, and even more nature-gone-berserk carnage: When a hole in the Earth’s ozone layer triggers bloodthirsty madness throughout the animal kingdom, all mankind – particularly a group of tourists on an overnight hike – will become their prey. Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Richard Jaeckel, Michael Ansara, Andrew Stevens and Leslie Nielsen – in his now-legendary pre-AIRPLANE! performance that “is worth the price of admission alone” (DVD Talk) – star in “one of the most outrageous offerings the drive-in has ever known” (Pop Matters), now featuring a 2K scan from the internegative and howling with Special Features produced exclusively for this edition.
