  Project Grizzly, a story with teeth!
  Gaining critical praise from everyone from Quentin Tarantino to The Simpsons, Project Grizzly has become a huge international cult classic, even before its release in the UK. The hit documentary charts the incredible quest of Canadian, Troy James Hurtubise, who after a near death experience with one of North America’s most deadly residents decided to create a suit capable of withstanding a close-quarter confrontation with the deadly grizzly bear. Yes, it really is that mad!

Utterly hilarious from start to finish, the movie follows this modern day Don Quixote and his band of men as they put the suit through rigorous testing procedures to simulate the mythic grizzly’s awesome power. These often crazily extreme stunts are both hair-raising and infectiously humorous, testing both Troy’s armour and courage.

Project Grizzly is undoubtedly a modern classic, unparalleled in comic value, originality and pure engrossing lunacy, the movie, which started off as one man’s beautiful dream, has now become a worldwide phenomenon. As with all good documentaries, the film skates majestically on the line between documentary and drama drawing the audience into a world which is at once surreal and wonderfully grounded. Capturing the imaginations of the whole of North America the tale is well overdue its official arrival in the UK.
