Ahhhh, the early days of DVD. When anything and everything was released to capitalise on the burgeoning desire for people to buy discs but not pay the extortionate prices the big studios were charging. The “Music Zone years” as I like to call them, when you could walk into any of the companies many high street shops and buy DVDs for a fiver (about a third of the regular price of studio fare). From companies like Marquee Pictures, Prism Leisure, Ilc Prime…
Why am I reminiscing about this? Well because it was also at this time that I was also busy buying up unwanted VHS tapes from people upgrading to the new-fangled disc format, snapping up horror films like there »

Hunting Grounds, 2015.
Directed by John Portanova.
Four hunters soon find themselves lost in the American wilderness, stumbling across a squad of bloodthirsty Sasquatch who won’t let them leave without a fight.
Bafflingly retitled from the far superior (and much more sensical) Valley of the Sasquatch, Hunting Grounds is yet another micro-budget creature-feature that’s found itself a comfortable home on DVD, following a slew of rather successful festival screenings all over the States. It’s nothing particularly new or even remotely groundbreaking, but does offer up a surprisingly watchable 90 minutes, which is more than can be said for 90% of its fellow bargain bin time-wasters.
Obviously from a technical standpoint, there’s not a lot here. The acting is about as wooden as it comes, camerawork is steady but occasionally too dark, and the sasquatch in question do come off »

Horror movie monsters don’t get much goofier than the Sasquatch. Sure, Bigfoot is a legitimate part of American folk legend/mythology, but The Missing Link doesn’t exactly inspire fear or terror, no matter how good the ape suit is. Some brave directors have tried, mind – most notably Eduardo Sanchez, with his found footage feature Exists – but we’re a long way off from a definitive, and good Bigfoot feature.
Latest – of a very small queue – to step up to the bat is John Portanova, with his mostly serious Hunting Grounds (or Valley of the Sasquatch to go by its sillier but better title, by which is is known on UK DVD too). In it, we follow a grieving father and son duo (plus cannon-fodder brother-in-law »
