    I might check it out in spite of that abused color scheme.

    I'm in if for no other reason than seeing Amanda Wyss & Adrienne Barbeau in a bigfoot flick. Other than that, I'll stick with our own Fatty Joe's Hunting Grounds a.k.a. Valley of the Sasquatch and Harry and the Hendersons.

    Just finished it was okay not the best bigfoot movie but was for me a lot better than The Cured which I watched right before. Abominable and Exists are my 2 favorite Bigfoot flicks.

    Bare in mind the amazon listing is a DVDr. There is overseas pressed DVDs and blu ray versions available.

    I watched the first 5 minutes through Amazon Prime, and that was more than enough for me. It's another from the found footage pile, and it managed to squeeze in everything I hate about the sub-genre in that brief amount of time--irritating hipster characters, shaky, un-artistic camera work, and the usual slack pace to pad the run-time. Your mileage may vary if you have a higher tolerance for found footage.

    I haven't seen it in a few years so I can't remember the specifics, but I do remember the movie going fucking insane around the halfway point. You have to give it a little more than 5 mins though.

    It's not a must-see or anything, but it's definitely not your typical found-footage movie, even if it lulls you into thinking it is.

    Thanks. I may fast-forward to the middle at some point. Does the camera settle down?

    I don't remember, but I feel like the camera probably gets crazier. The second half is non-stop chaos, I remember a lot of running.

    I don't reccomend movies that suck or that my forum friends will hate. Evidence first time I watched it first 10 min had me wanting to kill and turn it off. I got the same vibe oh god here we go again! Bunch of idiots blah blah but to my surprise I loved. The film got better and better as the film progressed. Yes there is allot of shakey camera but the film is allot of fun. I have reccomended it many times with no regret. Everyone so far told me they loved and enjoyed it. The film is ape shit crazy and keeps you guessing till the end.

    Thanks! I'll give it another shot at some point. I didn't watch the trailer before I started, so I wasn't ready for found footage. I'm generally down for all things squatchy, so another try with the proper expectations might help.

    Got around to watching Big Legend earlier this week. It was a good but not great film, at least for me. After a Bigfoot attack early in the film, some pacing issues weigh the film down. The final confrontation would be the highlight. More mayhem would have been welcome, but I especially would have liked to see the Sasquatch get more screen time. Too sparse in that regard. Excellent Pacific Northwest setting in Washington helps sell the story. Adrienne Barbeau and Lance Henriksen predictably have cameos, fairly short ones. This DVD cost me less than $10.00. I am satisfied.

    Pacing issues are an understatement for this one. The entire movie is pretty much just waiting around for a big 5-minute confrontation between the lead character and a bigfoot. The rest is pretty much just a guy wandering through the woods all mopey. A decent 20-minute short, perhaps, but it's a SLOG of a 90 minute feature.

    At the beginning of the movie, the main character proposes to his girlfriend, and the next ten minutes of the movie are literally just the woman repeatedly saying "OH MY GOD! A RING! ARE YOU SERIOUS! I can't believe you got me a ring! We're getting married! This ring is amazing!". Then she'll stop for a few seconds, then: "I can't believe I have a ring. Can you believe this is happening. This is such a good ring too. Thank you for this ring. I can't believe you got me a ring! We're so good together! And now I have a ring! Oh my god, can you believe how round this ring is?" Seriously, this goes on for ten minutes of the movie. Unfriended: Dark Web, which I had gone to see earlier in the day, also does "the ring" character development, but they wisely keep it to under a minute.

    If you're here for Adrienne, Lance, or Amanda, don't bother. Adrienne and Lance each get about 2 minutes of screen-time, while Amanda has less than 30 seconds. Which is funny, because Amanda Wyss was recently on The Movie Crypt podcast saying she will not do 30 second cameos in horror movies, she's only interested in real roles. Whoopsie!

    And worst of all are the final minutes of the movie, which reveal that this entire movie was nothing but pointless set-up for a big sequel which may or may not ever happen. Which is ultimately a big "fuck you" to the audience, this isn't the real movie, this will be the real movie, basically the filmmakers saying your time is not important to us. If you're gonna make a movie and have all the resources to do so, just make that movie.

    The recently released Primal Rage is a WAY better bigfoot movie than this, so if you need that Yeti fix, go with Primal Rage. However, you can probably skip both and you'll be okay.
