Vicious Nature: Soundtracks for GRIZZLY and DEEP BLUE SEA 2 Announced
Dragon’s Domain Records, distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents the world premiere compact disc release of the soundtrack to GRIZZLY, featuring music composed by Robert O. Ragland (10 TO MIDNIGHT, Q, THE WINGED SERPENT, ASSASSINATION) for the 1976 horror thriller.
Directed by William Girdler and starring Christopher George, Andrew Prine, and Richard Jaeckel, GRIZZLY is a tale of realistic terror about the largest ground beast in the world, an eighteen foot, two thousand pound grizzly bear that goes on a massive killing spree in the serene setting of a national park. The score features orchestrations by Jack Hayes and was performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra of London
Composer Robert O. Ragland’s lifelong interest in music began at the age of five. Throughout his school years, he performed and organized dance bands. After graduation from Northwestern University, Ragland served as an arranger for the Dorsey Brothers Orchestra. Later, he attained degrees in music from the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago and attended the Academy of Music in Vienna. Following the death of Tommy Dorsey, Ragland officially left the music business for his stint in advertising. But the urge to write film music overwhelmed him so he came to California.
Some of Robert O. Ragland’s diverse credits include RETURN TO MACON COUNTY, PONY EXPRESS RIDER, SHARK’S TREASURE, PROJECT: KILL, ABBY, MANSION OF DOOM, JAGUAR LIVES, Q, THE WINGED SERPENT, MESSENGER OF DEATH, 10 TO MIDNIGHT, THE FEAR, ORION’S KEY, TOP OF THE WORLD and MOTEL BLUE. In his later years, Ragland also conducted the music for many live awards shows including the Oscars and the Emmys. Ragland passed away in 2012 at the age of 80.

Nineteen years ago, the Aquatica Project used genetically altered sharks in hopes of developing a cutting-edge cure for Alzheimer’s. They came close to achieving their goal but an unforeseen tragedy derailed the experiment. In DEEP BLUE SEA 2, a pharmaceutical billionaire is determined to revive the research of the Aquatica Project, enlisting shark conservationist Misty Calhoun onto the team to help promote the project. Calhoun is shocked to discover that the company is using unpredictable and highly aggressive bull sharks as test subjects. Before long, the drug-enhanced sharks are growing smarter, quicker and much deadlier. When the sharks rebel, Calhoun and her team have to find a way to escape Aquatica before it’s too late.
