A plane flight carrying a college football team crashes in the Himalayas. Surviving the crash was only part of their problem. Trying not to become a meal for the monster lurking in the mountains will be their greater challenge.
After a "Bigfoot Hunter" claims to possess the body of a dead Sasquatch, a disgraced investigative journalist stakes his comeback -- and the lives of his documentary film crew -- on proving the find to be a hoax.
Through the experiences of two amateur Bigfoot researchers in Appalachian Ohio, we see how the power of a dream can bring two men together and provide a source of hope and meaning that transcend the harsh realities of life in a dying steel town.

Stranded in the Lake District, Will and Harvey spend their time tricking the locals into believing that Bigfoot is real, equipped with nothing but a cheap costume. The locals fall for it and hire a hunter to kill the beast.
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 »

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.
