Joe Grizzly is a minor character in the remake of Halloween. He was played by Ken Foree.
"Big Joe" Grizzly was a truck driver who stopped at a rest stop/car wash near Haddonfield. He stopped to use the restroom, where he came across Michael Myers. At first, he told Michael to go away while he made use of the restroom. Michael, however, kept knocking on the door, which annoyed Grizzly, who got his knife out.
He opened the door and threatened to cut off the mask on Michael's face. Myers burst into the restroom stall and fought with Grizzly who tried to stab Michael with a knife. Michael slammed him against the wall multiple times, took his knife and repeatedly stabbed him in the stomach until he died. Afterward, he stole Grizzly's coveralls.
- Joe's death won the "Golden Chainsaw Award" in Dead Meat’s Halloween (2007 Remake) kill count.
- Actor Ken Foree is perhaps best known among horror fans for his role in George Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978). He later made a cameo appearance in the 2004 Zack Snyder remake.
