Inspired by the 1985 true story of a drug runner's plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it, this wild dark comedy finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists, and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow... and blood.


This movie has such a Grindhouse feel to it that I wanted to create a real Grindhouse version that looked like it was from the 80s. I also felt that this movie lacked a good soundtrack so I’ve added a little more 70s style funk to beef up a lot of scenes. Most tracks also include cocaine in their lyrics and titles.

Change List:

• Add retro colourgrade throughout the entire movie • Add film grain throughout • Add dust and scratches throughout • Insert Fanedit warning • Insert Retro MR logo intro • Insert Grindhouse “Coming Attractions” intro • Insert Grindhouse “Coming soon” intro • Add Sisu Grindhouse MR Trailer • Add True Romance MR trailer • Insert Peewee Herman “Drugs kill” advert • Insert Grindhouse “Feature Presentation” Intro • Insert Retro R Rated Tiger Intro • Add 80s Universal Intro • Add Curtis Mayfield – Diamond in the Back track • Add Movies Remastered to opening credits • Add Baby Huey – Hard Times track (This becomes Cocaine Bears theme song) • Add “Grindhouse Edit” to opening title • Insert “Partnership for a Drug-free America advert • Insert 80s Celebrity Anti-drug advert • Insert Knight Rider Anti-drug advert • Add deleted scene with guy having Hoover removed from his a$$ • Add rebuild these scenes in 5.1 surround • Add more hospital sound FX in 5.1surround channels • Add doctor being paged sound FX • Insert Working Moms – S01E01 Bear in park scene • Re-frame all scenes above to adjust for aspect ratio • Add frame glitch to make it feel like 35mm skip • Add 5.1 channel birds and forest sounds to match other scenes. • Add “Push it to the Limit” track • Add “Eric Clapton – Cocaine” track to police intro scene • Add “Curtis Mayfield – Pusherman” track to Boss man intro scene • Add “Gary Wright – Dreamwaver” track to mums crush scene • Add “Willie Nelson – Whiskey River” track to bar scene • Add “Frank Perez - Code Blue” 70s Cop Funk track during Police station scene • Add “Cameo – Flirt” track to Park ranger flirting scene • Add “Janko Nilovic – Drug Song” track to kids trying drugs scene • Add “George Clinton – We Got the Funk” track to toilet scene • Add “That Funky Soul” track to continued toilet scene • Insert deleted scene of Park Ranger walking with Mum • Add forest & bird sound FX to 5.1 surround channels • Rebuild deleted scene sound to fix bad audio cuts. • Add Mum saying “Dee Dee, Henry” from the original into the deleted scene. • Fix audio transition issue from deleted scene. • Blend shots from original and deleted scene to make the search scene with Park Ranger as long as it can ve. This also adds more flirting lines with these 2 which just makes things awkward and offkey. • Add tension close-up camera zoom to park ranger shot • Remove the “20 Questions” scene • Add “Universe – Cocaine” track to kid asking about doing drugs • Add white out to flash back • Remove “Well, you know what…” line. It just felt weird stretching out that line. • Add “Frank Perez - Code Blue” 70s Cop Funk track during Cop on the roof scene • Add forest sounds in 5.1 surround channels • Insert Bear attack scene from Backcountry (2015) movie • Trim above scene for faster pace • Add “Play that funky music” track to Bear attack to create the offkey vibe of the movie • Add bone cracking sound FX • Add standard man screaming sound FX • Add spray can sound FX • Add man screaming in pain sound FX • Continue Forest sounds in 5.1 to create eerie scene transition • Insert deleted scene of Mum and Henry searching for Dee Dee across the river. I really didn’t like the jarring way the original cut the scene plus, this scene now mentions Rocky and Star Wars movies and shows the Mum is smart and cares. • Rebuild 5.1. Surround sound for above scene. • Add birds and forest sound FX in 5.1 to match previous scenes. • Add river running sound FX in 5.1 channels • Fix the music transition coming out of the deleted scene. This cut off too abruptly in the Blu-ray release so I’ve smoothed out the mix. • Remove the “Vagina on my ear” joke. Even if this were funny. The bear isn’t laying anywhere near his ear when it falls. • Add “Earth, Wind and Fire – Fantasy” track to Bear doing Cocaine scene • Add “Gill Scott Heron – The Bottle” track to running scene • Add “James Brown – Payback” as Boss man explains the situation • Add white out flashes to flashback sequences • Add “Paul Anka – Puppy Love” track to dog flashback • Remove awkward shot of everyone just standing on the ledge • Add “Grindhouse version by Movies Remastered” to outro credits • Insert Park Ranger deleted scene as mid credit scene • Convert above scene to 5.1 surround sound • Add forest sound effects for continuity • Insert 80s Anti-cocaine advert to end credits • Add grindhouse film burn out • Add MR Grindhouse logo • Fade to black

Additional Notes:

Available only on MR Discord to Initiate members who own the original Blu-ray. Invite link here: UPDATE: I changed my mind after watching the final cut and added all the deleted scenes. After cutting some of the jokes, I felt this edit needed some lighter moments to give that real emotional roller-coaster feeling. It was also fun rebuilding the 5.1. surround channels for each scene. Hence 2.0 in the file name.
