LOOK OUT! It’s a Bear – It’s a Snake – It’s WHEN ANIMALS ATTACK!

First up is ‘Grizzly’ (1976), a feral ‘Jaws’ knockoff so scary no amount of Deep-Woods Off! can mask that not-so-fresh feeling. Park ranger Mike (a Scheider-esque Christopher George) must fight the Washington bureaucrats and fortune-hunting poachers as he stalks some sort of SUPER-bear lopping off honeymooners’ heads and bringing the entire National Park system to a standstill! (Maybe not as scary as the current Congress.)

Everyone knows ‘Selena’ made Jennifer Lopez a star, but it would take ‘Anaconda’ (1997) to answer the urgent question ‘Can she play an ethno-documentarian?’ J-Lo and her dope dream team (Ice Cube, Owen Wilson, Eric Stoltz!) embark on an Amazonian quest to locate a lost Indian tribe (just like that Kinski flick but with CGI). Shit happens, and they are soon forced to rely on a stowaway Paraguayan snake-hunter (Jon Voight) to get them down-river. But he may have ulterior motives? No, Sir Mix-a-Lot does not appear – there will be no refunds.

It’s all happening (indoors, on VHS!) with trivia & prizes during Freddy’s fearsome Happy Hour!
