Predator w/Charlie Sheen on VHS
I really really now wish that I had bothered to rent this movie way back in the late 80s when I saw the box in the store, but I didn't, so I now am wondering if it had anything to do with Grizzly 2.
Back in the late 80's, I worked in a video store that got their movies from several distributors and had a wide variety of stuff, including some very low budget and obscure titles released through smaller labels.
At some point, and this would have been between 1987 and 1989, we got in a movie that I swear was titled "The Predator", and the sleeve had Charlie Sheen on the cover. The description on the back mentioned something about a killer bear being involved, but despite my total immersion in all things horror at the time I opted to not take it home because it seemed like it leaned more towards some sort of hunting/adventure flick. I do remember that it wasn't a major release, we had only received one copy of the film (whereas a film like the original Grizzly would have warranted 4-6 copies if it had been a new relase during the time I worked there). I also remember thinking that it looked like another one of those derelict video releases that were only on video because someone in the cast who wasn't famous then was famous now etc...
Anyway, I tried for a little while to search for this vhs movie on ebay and on the internet etc., to see if I could find out whether or not this "Predator" vhs video might have been connected to this in some way but could not find a trace of it, and on Sheen's imdb credits, there isn't anything else I could find that could logically be tied to it either.
Was wondering if anyone else remembers this or knows anything about it.
I did see that interestingly enough, the Grizzly 2 movie was filmed in 1983, but was purchased by Cannon in 1987, and since Cannon went bankrupt sometime in the late 80's, I could see where some of their properties might have found outlets elsewhere, and I certainly know that a lot of fly-by-night video distributors were not completely kosher when it came to the rights for some of the stuff they were putting out so who knows.
If anyone has anything to add or whatever, much appreciated.
