Editorial Reviews

The depletion of the earth's ozone layer causes animals above the altitude of 5000 feet to run amok, which is very unfortunate for a group of hikers who get dropped off up there by helicopter just before the quarantine is announced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all! June 19, 2007
Format:DVD
As far as "when animals attack"-type movies go, this one's actually pretty good. If "Grizzly" was William Girdler's "Jaws", this is probably his "The Birds". There are probably more shots of staring owls and vultures and other birds of prey in this film than any other in memory. But wait, there's more: a generous serving of tarantulas, snakes, big cats, bears, wild dogs, rats ... basically this film is Dr Doolittle's worst nightmare.

The plot (animals driven crazy by cosmic rays attack hikers) may sound simplistic, but at least Girdler cross-cuts between the different disaster-movie-type characters and their various subplots to maintain interest. (There's even a Shelley Winters clone.) He even manages to give a SLIGHTLY post-apocalyptic scope to the film, which is quite cool, with scenes of an abandoned town a la "The Andromeda Strain" and a deserted campsite whose occupants have obviously become lunch.

Media Blasters have done a very nice job with this DVD. While it lacks a commentary, it does at least offer a "making of" doco featuring interviews with surviving cast members (including Susan Backlinie, who became fish food at the start of "Jaws"), an original trailer, and TWO versions of the same film, one a 1.85:1 television master, and the other a 2.35:1 theatrical reissue under the title "Something Is Out There." The latter version is a fairly beaten-up print, but there's a kind of grindhouse beauty to its dust, scratches and splotches, and the aspect ratio is my personal pick over the cleaner, yet cropped 1.85:1 version. Which version you choose to watch comes down to whether you prefer a cleaner print or the proper OAR. However, the 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars When Leslie Nielsons Attack!... May 17, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
William Girdler's follow-up to GRIZZLY, DAY OF THE ANIMALS (aka: SOMETHING IS OUT THERE) features pack-hunting mountain lions, bone-crushing grizzlies, ravenous wolves, hellish hawks, flesh-plucking buzzards, sinister rattlesnakes, and rats that can leap 10 feet! However, the true star of DOTAs is Leslie Nielson as the odious hiker gone feral! He intimidates, threatens, beats up others, kills a guy, and attempts to rape a gal hiker! You see, the ozone layer's been depleated to such an extent as to cause the animals (including Nielson's character) to attack and kill all humans! Watch this one as part of your next "nature's revenge" film fest!...

3.0 out of 5 stars Leslie Neilsen tries to punch out a grizzly bear! February 10, 2000
Format:DVD
If the ozone layer vanished,many scientists have theories about how this would effect life on Earth. I guarantee that none of these theories comes close to the one put forth by this movie. Turns out that when the ozone goes, all the animals on the planet go ICKY-BINGO and band together to wipe humanity off the face of the planet. It's not really dynamic but it is fun watching cougars running through Denver's suburbs scaring crossing guards, mailmen and dogs out of 10 years growth. The best part though, is when crazed hiker Leslie Neilsen goes kamikazee against a murderous grizzly bear. He actually tries to bite the beasts ear off! Needless to say this is a very short,but entertaining scene. There is also an attempt at drama and inter-personal tension, but luckily the creators never try too hard with that part of the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't have this DVD, but.... May 8, 2006
Format:DVD
I notice a lot of people complaining about the transfer. Aopparently they have not taken a look at the old DVD from Nutech, the transfer is more than likely considerably worse! Anyway, the movie is pretty good, not as good as Gridler's previous movie Grizzly but stuill good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lions and Leslies and Bears.....Oh My! March 10, 2007
Format:DVD
The intro to this film says that this is a scenario that COULD happen if we continue to mess with the ozone layer. I'm no man of science, but I seriously doubt this scenario would actually happen regardless of how much we junk the ozone layer. That's not the point though, the point is to make a scare film. A group of hikers in the mountains have to fight to survive against the ozone crazed wildlife. This time it's not just one species of animal that's pissed off(Frogs, The Swarm, Squirm, etc.), all the animals are pissed off! Disney's Animal Kingdom's got nothing on this mountain for the true hardcore animal experience, though to it's credit, Disney does have gorillas and the Dinosaur ride. Unlike most films that feature a cast of annoying folks you'd love to see eaten by animals, there are actually a few characters here you grow to like. Alot of them are familiar faces. Richard Jaeckel from the Dirty Dozen, and of course, The Green Slime, Christopher George(who keeps his brains inside his head this time), Andrew Davis(the guy who's always screwing around with Shannon Tweed in those Night Eyes movies), and Leslie Nielsen. What's cool is that the director gets live animals in the shot with the actors for the attack scenes instead of the old trick of animal stock footage intercut with an actor screaming. One of the highlights is Nielsen. This guy's been typecast since 1988, and it's nearly impossible to picture him as anything but a zany klutz. The man can act when he wants to though. It's a trip to see him as a psychopath and all around jerk. He's actually convincing. Of course anyone who's seen Creepshow knows that Leslie can be serious as a heart attack when he wants to. I actually liked this movie more than I probably should have, so my high rating of the film might be a bit exaggerated. I did find it rather fun, plus I've always had a soft spot for the whole "nature strikes back" thing. If that's also your thing, it wouldn't hurt to check this out.
