Films: Wild Beasts (1984)
Alias: Various, notably lions, tigers, polar bears, elephants, dogs, cows, cheetahs, rats
Location: Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of their respective species.
Summary: Whoever thought it was a good idea to introduce human drugs to animals needs to be fired on the spot. Then again, this whole mess was an accident no one saw coming...
History: A Roman zoo was on the way to disaster when copious amounts of PCP unknowingly came into the water supply for all the animals. This meant that the beasts, ALL of them, were going to go nuts. And when the opportunity presented itself, they broke out en masse. Stampede or mauling? Choose your fate.
Notable Kills: The elephants stomp heads and cause planes to crash.
Final Fate: Many animals are killed, but some are corralled back into the zoo. Unfortunately, the PCP is starting to affect human kids now...
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-These animals are very much real and very much pissed. Believe us when we say that you don't want to be in the same room as a hungry polar bear!
Trivia: -The animals were notoriously hard to work with. An elephant smushed the director's foot, a tiger run amok in a train station, and the lead was almost beheaded by the polar bear.
-The film was going to be shot in Rhodesia, and then South Africa, until it fell onto Germany after the second one got them ousted, most likely due to bad press.
