It’s the movie that became a phenomenon — the unbelievable (sort-of) true story about a coked-up black bear gone berserk, “Cocaine Bear”.
This week, Chaos and Carnage invite you to join them on Blood Mountain in the state of Georgia for one very excited, very aggressive, very unfriendly bear! Prepare yourself for a silly, violent black bear cocaine-fueled RAMPAGE as drug smugglers go hunting for a missing shipment of the white stuff!
Cocaine Bear is a 2023 American comedy horror film directed by Elizabeth Banks and written by Jimmy Warden. It stars Keri Russell, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Christian Convery, Alden Ehrenreich, Brooklynn Prince, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Margo Martindale, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Ray Liotta. It is dedicated to Liotta, who died in May 2022.
Cocaine Bear was released in the United States on February 24, 2023, by Universal Pictures. The film received positive reviews from critics and grossed over $89 million against a production budget between $30–35 million.
Chaos also talks about the true story behind the movie and how a metric ton of cocaine went missing in the Georgia woods in the first place – info pulled from the documentary Cocaine Bear: The True Story streaming on Peacock (which is incidentally where you can also check out Cocaine Bear for yourself).
Of course, the film’s plot differs from real-life events in a number of ways. Notably, the real-life Cocaine Bear is not known to have killed anyone after consuming drugs, and what transpired in the time leading up to its death from overdose is unknown. Director Banks stated that “this movie could be seen as that bear’s revenge story.”

Say Hello and Goodbye to OUR FINAL EPISODE!
We saved this horror classic for last – but if you expected us to side with the critics you obviously don't listen to this podcast very often!
Reagan is a 12 year old girl who starts talking to Captain Howdy through her Ouija board – and then becomes possessed by a demon from Assyria named Pazuzu! Doctors can do nothing! Science can't explain it! Thank goodness for Captain Catholicism – err some priests. Yeah, some priests.
