Yellow Fangs: Grizzly Terror is a 1990 Japanese horror film, starring Hiroyuki Sanada, Mika Muramatsu, and Akira Kurosaki. The movie is set in the snowy mountains of Hokkaido, Japan, where a series of brutal attacks by a giant grizzly bear terrorizes the locals. The story follows Sawamura, a forest ranger who lost his wife and son in a bear attack a few years ago, and is now leading a team to hunt down the killer bear. The team consists of experienced hunters, a vengeful farmer, and a young police officer named Hiroki, who is also Sawamura's apprentice.

As the team ventures deeper into the mountain, they discover that the bear is not an ordinary grizzly, but a mutated creature that is bigger, stronger, and much more intelligent than its kind. The creature is dubbed "Yellow Fangs" due to the distinctive yellow color of its teeth.

Yellow Fangs is a ruthless predator that hunts not only for food but also for sport. It seems to be aware of human traps and firearms and even sabotages the team's equipment. The bear's intelligence and cunning make it a formidable foe that the team struggles to overcome.
