Goofs

Professor Nugent's face is bandaged in the opening sequence, and the rest of the movie is a flashback to how his face became mutilated. In the beginning scenes, his face is bandaged so that the entire upper half of his face looks normal. However, when we see the actual incident where his face gets burned, his entire face is burned to the point of causing death by trauma and dehydration. See more »

I LOVE this!!
18 March 2003 | by (Ohio Sasquatch Territory!) – See all my reviews

This film says 1980, but I'm willing to say it's older than that. The music during the opening credits sounds like Room 222. Lots of gore, bad acting, some nudity, a bigfoot/humanoid baby and the low budget makes this an enjoyable viewing treat for all drive-in movie/ bigfoot fans!! It's hard to find so check Ebay. If you think Sasquatch: The Untold was great, then this baby will blow your mind!! Two thumbs up.
