You ever hear about an old movie, and you're like ‘oh my God, I have to watch this now!’ Well, it happens to me quite a lot. Often said movie has something to do with rampaging animals, whether it be rats (Deadly Eyes), dogs (The Pack) or a tiger in a motherfuckin' hurricane (Burning Bright).
So, I was reading an interview (in Delirium magazine, issue #3) with director Ted Nicolau recently, where he recounted how in the late seventies he turned down a job on the Tippi Hedren picture Roar, due to unsafe conditions.
Wait a minute, what? A movie about lions terrorizing a family on a wildlife preserve? Uh, yes please.
I did an internet search and holy cats, copies are going for seventy-five bucks or more. So, save for watching this on YouTube, I've got some extensive hunting to do.
