Day of the Animals ★ Something Is Out There 1977 (PG)

Nature gone wild. It seems a depleted ozone layer has exposed the animals to the sun's radiation, turning Bambi and Bugs into brutal killers. A group of backpackers trek in the Sierras, unaware of the transformation. Farfetched and silly (we hope). 95m/C VHS, DVD . Christopher George, Leslie Nielsen, Lynda Day George, Richard Jaeckel, Michael Ansara, Ruth Roman, Jon Cedar, Susan Backlinie, Andrew Stevens, Gil Lamb; D: William Girdler; W: William W. Norton Sr.; C: Robert Sorrentino; M: Lalo Schifrin.
