c77-window2bCLAWS (1977)

Proving that there’s nothing so crappy it can’t inspire someone, this cheap knock-off of Grizzly tells the tale of one man’s Ahab-like quest to rid the Alaskan wilderness of what might be a supernatural being, or a gigantic grizzly bear, or a smallish black bear, or the taxidermist’s handiwork, depending on what shot we happen to be looking at.

Those new to this film should be warned that it features a particularly tragic ending, from which this viewer is yet to recover…
