    Has anybody seen this movie with Melanie Griffith and Tippi Hedren (The Birds)?

    Apparently Hedren and her husband at the time Noel Marshall were super into lions, to the point where they had a lion living with them and their children. Here's a picture of Melanie Griffith in their back yard at the time.

    So this crazy mother fucker Noel Marshall goes to Africa on a plot of land with like 50 wild, untrained great cats of all kinds - lions, tigers, jaguars, oh my - and then brings his fucking family there to live day in and day out with these wild UNTRAINED lions and tigers and shit, and just film some loose barely scripted story about reconciling the marriage, all while they're all being chased and mauled by these fucking lions.

    The director of photography was Jan de Bont (Speed / Twister) and he got scalped by a lion. Melanie Griffith got mauled and almost lost her eye. There were 70 injuries to the cast and crew from attacks and maulings by lions and tigers but they kept filming this fucking thing for about five years.

    This Noel Marshall guy was fucking insane. It was like watching Timothy Treadwell. The whole movie he is either bleeding from some minor wound or bandaged. Two lions are fighting and he jumps in and pulls one away, trying to pass himself off as a father figure to the cats in his movie.

    It's the most insane thing ever filmed. This retard almost got his whole family eaten by lions and Tippi Hedren went along with it.

    There is no story to this stupid movie but it's still hard to look away because any minute Melanie Griffith might get eaten by giant cats.

    Well, I can't really say I recommend it as a movie. It's interesting as a spectacle of sheer insanity and has some decent cinematography, but it has literally no plot and the acting isn't anything to write home about.

    You can probably do better with your time.

    I'm watching The Stanford Prison Experiment at the moment. It's probably a waste of time too.

    I have time to kill, so maybe I'll check that out as well.

    I'd swear I saw a thread about this movie earlier this year. I keep forgetting to watch it though.

    I understand admiring animals like lions and bears. I just don't know why random people suddenly take it upon themselves to risk everything to prove that these animals are gentle.

    I think weve gotten so far removed from our ancestors who had to actually fight these animals on a daily basis and people seem to think they're just like big dogs or something.

    It's a spectacle for sure. They just did a really limited rerelease of this into theatres I want to say last summer. I saw it at a small art theatre and it was one of the better theatrical experiences I've had. Just sheer madness.

    The fact that the members of Hedren's family ended up surviving this crazy shit is a testament to...oh who am I kidding, it's just dumb fucking luck. Why on earth did this movie get made? What a fundamentally, irredeemably stupid idea.

    How did someone not get killed and eaten?

    Looks like the whole movie is on Youtube.

    I learned about this movie from the dog earlier this year or late last year.

    I showed this to my 16 year old nephew and his friends. It tripped them out. One of his friends was all why the fuck would they do that. That shit is dumb as fuck. He was getting mad and shit. Then we found out they were showing it at the Alamo draft house. We were set to go but our plans fell through. You know how teens are shit plans change on a whim. I guess they rather hang out with their friends rather than their old ass uncle.
