Bobcat Goldthwait's Willow Creek (Found Footage Bigfoot Movie)

Never been a big fan of Bobcat's standup act (Honestly I think what he does on stage is fucking ridiculous), But his writing/directing career has really impressed me. His latest project comes in the form of a found footage film about Bigfoot! here's the synopsis and the Trailer for your enjoyment.

Quote:
Jim and his girlfriend Kelly are in Willow Creek, California, to retrace the steps of Bigfoot researchers Patterson and Gimlin, who, in 1967, recorded the most famous film of the legendary monster. Kelly is a skeptic, along for the ride to spend time with her boyfriend between acting gigs. Jim, a believer, hopes to capture footage of his own, so his camera is constantly rolling.

The small town is a mecca to the Bigfoot community; sasquatch statues guard the local businesses, murals of the missing link line the roads, and Bigfoot burgers are the town delicacy. The couple interview locals who range from skeptic to believer and from manic to completely menacing. Some of the stories they hear are of chance encounters with a gentle creature, while others are tales of mysterious eviscerations.

On the day that Jim and Kelly plan on hiking into the woods to look for proof, they are given a simple warning: “It’s not a joke. You shouldn’t go there.” Despite the ominous message and Kelly’s own reservations, they head deep into the forest to set up camp. The events that follow will make them wish they had simply spent the night at the Bigfoot Motel.

Well, this appears to be more promising than the somewhat hyped and then slammed The Lost Coast Tapes (from what I read. Not seen the movie yet).
So many Bigfoot movies made over the years, but only one managed to creep my out (The Legend of Boggy Creek). Another decent effort was Snowbeast (1977).
Hopefully Willow Creek won't disappoint.

Guy, I thought it was Boggy Creek 2 that got you all silly in the pants.

That poster is pretty cool.

It played the MD FilmFest this year but I was out of town that weekend, unfortunately. Some friends saw it and loved it. Bobcat was actually here with it and did a long Q&A. He had just had dental work done, and was high on painkillers. Hopefully it gets better distro soon; I'd imagine Magnolia (who released both his WORLD'S GREATEST DAD and GOD BLESS AMERICA) would snap it up.

Here's the trailer:

Do yourself a favor and avoid Lost Coast Tapes. It's really not worth the time. Trust me.

The trailer looks like just another mediocre found footage film.

But based on Bobcat Goldthwait's previous ventures behind-the-camera, I know that there has to be a bit more to it than that. I'll definitely be checking it out.

That was my knee jerk reaction at first. But honestly, The fact that not much is shown is what makes this film so interesting to me. Nowadays, every single trailer Hollywood pumps out (horror film trailers in particular) give away too much.

As a lover of all things squatchy and Goldthwait's previous films I have high hopes for this. That said, the trailer suggests a much more derivative, generic film than I'd expect from him. Hopefully this one includes some of the sardonic humor that makes his earlier movies such a breath of fresh air.

Looks good. I agree with the Blair Witch feel to it, and although I haven't seen any of hid Directed efforts, I want to as they all look great.

So its been awhile since anything has been reported on this film. But good news my friends, Entertainment Weekly just released new poster art and an official clip from the film. You can check the poster art below or you can click here to view the clip. And in even better news, Williow Creek will be available on demand, and in theaters, June 6th!
