How to watch Cocaine Bear
Watch Cocaine Bear: preview
If you missed the adrenaline-fuelled Cocaine Bear at the movies, rejoice because this B-movie blast is charging onto streaming service Peacock. From actress and director Elizabeth Banks, this thriller provides gore and guffaws in its story of a botched drugs run in 1985 north Georgia, a black bear’s cocaine binge, and the fictionalised carnage that follows. And you can watch Cocaine Bear online now with a $4.99 subscription to Peacock (opens in new tab).
Fans of cringe-worthy horror-comedies (think Lake Placid, Slither, Black Sheep) will find plenty to like about Cocaine Bear. It’s a gory, action-packed yarn about a disparate group of characters – a nurse and her missing daughter, a drug kingpin and his lackeys, delinquent teens and a local detective – who find themselves in the path of a rampaging, 500lb black bear that’s ingested a crazy amount of coke.
A brilliant cast go into this bloody caper with gusto. Margo Martindale (August: Osage County) stars as a gung-ho park ranger, Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story) is the weepy son of Syd (played by the late, great Ray Liotta), while Isiah Whitlock Jr is the detective trying to locate the missing drugs – and evade the bear who’ll tear through anyone for a bump!
It’s a wildly outrageous thrill ride, and you can read below how to watch Cocaine Bear online and stream the hit horror-comedy from anywhere.
