'No way!' twice in the first five lines of dialogue let you know what to expect from this attempt to ape Jaws, so to speak. The strictly B feature cast plays a team of Forest Rangers (including boozy maverick and fey conservationist, as in Jaws) chasing an alleged twenty-footer who eats girl campers. Alleged, because whenever the bear is seen from a normal angle, he is quite obviously of medium build; much of the other marauding is done from his own point of view (as in King Kong), which equally fails to convince. The heavy-breathing soundtrack accompanying these attacks is at least preferable to lines like 'While you've been sitting on your fat ass, I've made this forest part of me'.

If you are not looking for an oscar winner, this might be it. Nothing but good B-movie horror from the 70's, I loved it as a kid and still do. "15 feet of terror" tag line fits, don't study the film just sit back and take it for a good 90 minute break from the normal.
