You all taste the same in this trailer for INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE

2 min read


Oh I do love me a good old fashioned wild animal gone mental flick and Into the Grizzly Maze promises to deliver. It also has one of my favourite actors in, that being Oscar Winner Billy Bob Thorton. I think the last time I watched a movie that was similar was The Grey with Liam Neeson, another movie where mother nature decides that the incumbent humans deserve to get mauled, ripped to shreds and generally separated from important bits of their body. So basically the story for Into the Grizzly Maze.

After a big monster of a bear decides to start snacking on humans a team of meat specialists head in to fix the problem with ol Thorton acting as their expert guide. It would seem that the big bear is also scaring off the normal bear population so I think the humans stand about as much chance as all coming out alive as the movie does of winning an Academy Award. Here’s the premise:

In the action thriller ‘Into the Grizzly Maze’, a deputy whose mission is protecting the threatened grizzly bear suddenly finds himself conflicted when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc on a local Alaskan community. Enlisting the help of his estranged brother, he enters the labyrinthian Grizzly Maze to track down his wife, who’s gone missing, before the bear does. As the body count mounts and an infamous bear hunter enters the fray determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life, no one is safe in the harsh Alaskan wilds.

It actually looks like a blast, though no one that I would pay cinema prices to see. Which is just as well as it’s available on VOD on 19 May. Into the Grizzly Maze stars James Marsden, Thomas Jane, Billy Bob Thornton, Piper Perabo, Scott Glenn, Adam Beach, Michaela McManus and Kelly Curran.

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
