Episode 82 - Flickers and Caves and Bears Oh My

We are off to Jellystone for this episode of Flickers!  There are bears in those woods and they are wanting to do more than ruin your picnic.  We start with 1976's Grizzly from director William Girdler and featuring performances from some of our favorite character actors, including Christopher George, Richard Jaeckel and Andrew Prine.  In a story that is VERY similar to a certain hit film about 3 guys who are looking for a big shark off the coast of Amity Island, this is a solid PG-rated movie that entertains but is not lacking problems. We follow that up with another movie about a killer bear, 1979's Prophecy from legendary director John Frankenheimer.  This time we bundle in environmentalism, the lousy treatment of native Americans, and corporate malfeasance...this is a heck of a stew.  With lead performances from Richard Foxworth, Talia Shire and Armand Assante, we really liked this one a lot.  Let us know what you thought of the show and send us your suggestions for future pairings by writing to flickersfrom@yahoo.com or flickersfrom@gmail.com or just leave a message on our Facebook page.
