1102. Cry Wilderness (1987)

Maybe the cursed three-legged bear plate is the danger?

Agree about raccoons. Don’t agree about Johnny. I’m enraged to this day that he wasn’t the one lost in the desert 50,000 A.D., instead of poor Godo.

The Mayor
Bigfoot has seen Jaws, and was thus able to predict that the incompetent mayor would manage to overreact and underreact at the same time. Faster than you can say “Amity Island,” the mayor refuses to take straightforward precautions, yet calls Our Heroes off the search just to tell them they should go out on the search! This forces Will to continue to interact with Morgan Hicks, the tiger and other animals, but as the person who dumps everything on Will, the Mayor is the root cause of the danger.

So… The Dead Zone, but for furries.

Yeah, that also shoulda’ been your movie.

Clearly it has been too long since I last watched this, as I recall nothing about a tiger…

Well TBF that’s clearly not Eric Foster either.

He was in danger of botulism because of improperly canned preserves he was storing in his cabin. Fortunately, the raccoons took care of that. I’m not sure why Paul had to be involved.

Harry and the Hendersons came out in 1987, too, so that’s an impressively fast turnaround, advertising agency!

Okay, so the actual life-threatening injury sustained by Will is when he’s caught in the mine cave-in while he’s looking for Paul. Paul put his own father in great danger by tagging along and running away.

So if Paul had just stayed at the juvenile mental institution they told him was a boarding school and taken his meds, his hallucinations would have subsided, his dad would have been fine, and that mesh-beshirted Stallone guy would still be able to see.

The Eighties WERE a cruel, cruel decade. [sigh]
