going to be a cult classic, 31 August 2007
Author: TerryGSims from United States

it is what it is a classic "B" movie and its great in classic "B" style Rick Montan stars in this big foot style thriller. Check it out if your a bigfoot fan. The lust filled beast scavenges the hills of central alabama looking for unsuspecting victims. One the scene comes the classic good DR.Stone(Rick Montana) who is employed by a "b" movie classic villain (classic movie maker Dave Friedman) to find the beast for "scientific" purposes (snicker). The good DR searches the Alabama woods with the classic blonde looker and several bad guys who are trying to thwart the good DR. In the end all the bad guys die the good DR. gets the girl but not the monster. Do I smell a part two? I hope so I love this classic stuff.
