Grizzly

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.

  • Audio Commentary with Mondo Digital’s Nathaniel Thompson and Film Writer Troy Howarth

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.

Special Features:

  • Audio Commentary with Film Critic Lee Gambin, Author of “Massacred by Mother Nature: Exploring the Natural Horror Film” 
  • Animal Boy – Interview with Actor Bobby Porter

Deep Blood

In a career that forever raised the bar for everything from hookers, cannibals and necrophiles to Ator, Emanuelle and Caligula, this long-unseen chum bucket from producer/director/EuroSleaze master Joe D’Amato may be his most bizarrely entertaining anomaly ever. Shot on location in Florida surf and Rome swimming pools, D’Amato combines ‘80s teen movie cliches and Native American mysticism with stupefying dialogue, over-the-top performances and shark footage that Bruno Mattei would later swipe for CRUEL JAWS to create what Oh, The Horror! calls “a weird, demented experience that begs to be discovered and embraced.” A cast of local unknowns – along with, inexplicably, the ‘60s comedy team of Charlie Brill & Mitzi McCall – star in this last word in Italian Sharksploitation, now scanned in 2K from the original negative for the first time ever.
