Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie: Terrible Movies #155
Appalachian eccentrics chase Bigfoot in this less-than-sympathetic documentary. Edited to exploit the down-on-their-luck Sasquatch-obsessed characters; the film seems to meander, lackadaisically tosses in a moment of tension at the 3/4 mark, then suddenly ends. I hope these guys can conquer their demons. Looking for a film where men cry, yell into the woods, and do Yeti stuff on the Internet? This movie's for you. Looking for Bigfoot? Look elsewhere. I watched it on Netflix Instant Streaming. Here's a trailer that concisely describes the real issues at the heart of the film; friendship, second chances, and lack of opportunity in Appalachia.
