PROJECT GRIZZLY (1996)
- Run Time: 72 min.
- Rating: AA
- Director: Peter Lynch
When Troy Hurtubise was attacked by a grizzly bear in 1984, he decided that he would never be the victim again and set about constructing an armoured suit that could withstand a grizzly attack. Built out of titanium, rubber and chain mail, and supported by interior air bags, the 145-pound suit (with Hurtubise often in it) is clobbered by baseball bats, thrown off cliffs and hit by a pickup truck. Seen around the world and even spoofed on The Simpsons, Project Grizzly has become a cult favourite.
“It’s fantastic.” — Quentin Tarantino
