Bigfoot


    I wonder why there are no really good Bigfoot movies out there?  You would think that with a subject matter like Bigfoot, we could have a truly scary movie about the big guy.  But... I can't think of a single one, besides "The Legend Of Boggy Creek".  As primitive and low-budget as it is, it's still by far the best.  The last Bigfoot movie I saw was the abysmal "Sasquatch" from some time in the 90s, starring the ever dependable Lance Henriksen.  It was pretty bad.  In fact, it sucked horseshit.

     Now I grew up in the woods.  And it was a summer ritual to sit huddled around a fire in the woods, scaring each other silly with tales of Bigfoot, The Hook, and Jason Voorhees.  A fun night of camping can easily become the stuff of nightmares when the talk inevitably turns to a hulking Sasquatch, lurking unseen, in the darkness around you.  Scary shit.  Think about it.

     A Bigfoot movie could have so many possibilities as a horror movie, if done right.  There is something undeniably scary about the legend of Bigfoot.  I wouldn't really want to encounter Bigfoot alone- would you?  Seems rather frightening, if you ask me.  It's frustrating that there are so many untapped areas for horror movies, yet instead we're subjected to either "Saw 12" or dull, stupid remakes of classic movies.  I want a good, new kick-ass Bigfoot movie!  Why not?  There are more ways to scare an audience besides a killer in a mask-as fun as those are.  I think the story of Bigfoot could make one great scary movie.  "The Legend Of Boggy Creek" has proven that.  Let's see if they can do it again.

i have to agree with you on that one.... I never seen a scary bigfoot movie, lots of scary bigfoot stories but not a scary bigfoot movie. Two scary bigfoot stories i read are on the BFRO web sight the one west of Vicitos lake in Colorado and in the one Jemez Mountains New Mexico. Check them out they are on the BFRO web page and if you have google earth you can down load their bigfoot sightings onto google earth and after you down load it you can look at all the stories reported in America.

i dont know maybe you would be interested in this but this guy talks about bigfoot and it makes sence...Go to google videos and type in Lyod Pye: Everything you know is wrong. It first starts off talking about evolution and then brings bigfoot into the big picture. Very interesting stuff, Enjoy!!! :)
