Default Killer Animal Movies!

Hi everyone,

I couldn't seem to find a thread about killer animal movies (I'm sure there is one somewhere).

Anywho, what are some of the greatest Animal Attack movies of all time? Sure, there's the classics like Jaws and Piranha that most people will know of, but what are some of the best (or worst!) movies?


To get the ball rolling, the other day I managed to watch Shakma. An obscure gem - a slasher movie... with a killer baboon! It was great fun and one to watch if you're lucky enough to find a DVD of it. Great kills, one crazy ass ape and quiet a few stars (Roddy McDowell and Tina from Nightmare On Elm Street).


Love the trailer too - the voiceover guy lets it all out in the end...




Anyone else seen this one?

I've seen a couple recently which i've briefly reviewed on the What Films Have You Seen? thread.

Monkey Shines. A decent Romero film with a really sweet Capuchin monkey that turns killer.

And Grizzly which is basically Jaws with a bear. It's not original but it's decent enough and has a good cast of grizzled western types.

Grizzly is great fun, Dem! Have you seen the unfinished Grizzly 2 that was floating around?

Basically a sequel in which a bear terrorises a rock concert.

No, sounds great. How do you mean unfinished? Was it never released?

Shakma is so cute another fave of mine is White Dog, which is rather a depressing movie but it's still greay

THE BIRDS

Yep, never released. I THINK it was leaked years later so it's not even a rough edit of the film. If I'm not mistaken, Kiss were planned to perform in it - though don't quote me on that. I remember watching it on YouTube a while back. Can remember next to nothing about it though...
