There is a sasquatch in it, lurking somewhere in the background
5 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Somewhat weak bigfoot story involving a group of randy kids going out into the wilderness to investigate a supposed bear attack, a group of hunters out to kill the same bear (who supposedly killed their friend's group) and a local ranger, and a Native American park ranger wandering around doing something. Oh yeah, plus you have a mayor worried about "tourist season" and hassling the sheriff to resolve these problems. And largely to the side-lines is an angry sasquatch.

Like most natural horror, there are shades of Jaws in this although it more lampoons the concept. Although the acting is notoriously weak for the park ranger and rednecks, the "teens" at least manage to act like teens. The token eye candies are likable and the token jock is humorous enough, but the nerd protagonist is kind of annoying and something of a jerk. Oddly enough, there's some whole subplot involving the kid's father that barely gets touched upon (in the beginning his mom is all like, "You have to spend time with your father!" then later on he's telling the other teens, "I don't have a dad").

Also unresolved is the whole issue of the sasquatches. Yeah, there are at least two there. At first glance it would seem one was dead (since it was buried), but maybe the other sasquatch was killing to protect an injured one (as you see it ambush the hunters in the beginning). On the lighter side, I do like how much of the film seemed to rely on implication which is a rarity in budget productions. As for the monster itself, the costume looks even worse than the one in Abominable. It's really not all that frightening-looking despite mauling and killing at least five people during the film while menacing a bunch more.

The general denouement is rather weak. The ending only minimally involves the sasquatch and you really get the feeling that he was just a background character during the whole film.
