Day of the Animals
Directed by William Girdler
A group of animal lovers are hunted by killer critters during a camping trip in this over-the-top cult classic from B-movie maestro William Girdler (GRIZZLY). Leslie Nielsen (CREEPSHOW), Lynda Day George (PIECES) and Ruth Roman (THE BABY) are among the campers whose hike turns into a death march when bears, birds, bugs and more start attacking. Though the campy attempts at staging the kills often induce more laughter than fear, especially the scene in which Nielsen fights a bear rug, DOTA still offers jolting thrills for all fans of the animal attack genre.

Great animal horror movie.
Leslie Nielsen embodies the depravity of man in this movie. But seriously who does a collar elbow ties up with a bear? 🤷♂️ It’s worth the ride.
I feel like they really worked with the limitations of what they could get animals to do and created a really well shot movie with cool atmosphere. Very tense movie. Definitely liked this one.
i LOVED this! the Leslie Nielsen character is so NASTY! you're just waiting with baited breath for him to get crazy animal actioned to death....lots of eagles flying around and vultures having beady eyes on young lads - then lots of footage of people 'fighting' stuffed animals. Plot not terrible though pretty simplistic but really good fun!
good 70s flick definitely reminds me of been a kid watchin horror flims with my grandfather
