Trivia

During casting for the film, a young woman came in to read for the role of Lou. After she finished, she told the film makers how refreshing it was to actually "read" for a film. She was used to casting people telling her to just take her top off. She didn't get the part, but the producers remember her fondly. Her name was Regina Russell. See more »

Above average for the genre
13 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After watching several sasquatch specials on cable, we set out in search of a good sasquatch movie. I considered the Lance Henricksen movie, but after reading how horrible it is, I decided to give this movie a try.

This movie is about a pair of researchers and their assistant going out in the woods in search of a possible north American ape. They take some unwitting park rangers along with them for guidance. Pretty soon they find what they are looking for, and more, of course.

This movie is actually pretty decent for the genre. The movie tried to take a somewhat scientific approach to the material that, while still outlandish, I appreciated; I think bigfoot junkies would as well. The writers did a better then average job of making personable (if formulaic) characters with pretty good dialogue. There were plenty of roll-your-eyes moments, but there were also some genuinely witty ones as well. They even threw in some pretty good eye candy in the form of Lou (short for Louise, apparently) played by Juliana Dever.

The weakest point of the movie is the special effects. Most of the creature shots are computer-generated. This mainly consists of close-up, quick chaotic type shots that work OK, and a few clearer shots of the whole creature doing something that are not so good. I think this is a trend low-budget movies will continue to follow but I think in this case at least they might have been better served with at least some man-in-a-suit effects instead.

Something else that's a little puzzling about this movie is the R rating. If it weren't for some totally unnecessary F-bombs, this could have easily been PG-13 or even PG.

Overall, above average for movies of this type.
