Although I was a scant 11 years old when I saw this, it left quite an impression on me, as I was just developing my fascination for the big fella. For a lower budget attempt, this movie serves the subject well. Unlike Legend of Boggy Creek, it purports to dramatize true events rather than serve as a quasi-documentary. I remember buying all the materials sold in the lobby after the movie...the one I wish I had held on to the most was the 33 and 1/3 "soundtrack" on a disc the size of a 45 single. Again, for a lower budget attempt, the music was highly effective, and contained "actual recordings" of a Bigfoot howl....recordings which were also used in the movie itself. The movie also had several moments of levity to offset the overall mood of the picture, which was a bit heavy and serious. After all, this movie was purported to be made by actual Bigfoot investigators and enthusiasts (at least that's what they said when I bought all their goodies!) designed to raise money for future expeditions. If you're a bigfoot enthusiast, do yourself a favor and locate this video online somewhere, as there are so few quality theatrical treatments of Sasquatch (the aforementioned Boggy Creek, the spooky Creature from Black Lake, and Those Mysterious Monsters being the better ones).
