Storyline

In "Ape Canyon" a lone Bigfoot (North America's Greatest Lover) roams the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He brings his gift of Red Hot Sasquatch Love to nature-loving ladies everywhere, whether they're hugging trees or simply camping and hiking. Bored waitress Darcy (Clover Lutter) had one unforgettable encounter and now she wants more. Night and day, she combs the woods for Bigfoot, calling to him, reciting love poems, and yearning for the wild, hairy touch of the beast who can satisfy her better than any man. Darcy's jealous husband Bill (Chris Henry) is also hot on the trail of Sasquatch, but he's coming with guns blazing. Time is running out for Bigfoot. Will Darcy win his heart before it's too late- or will the consequences of his untamed libido bring his wild ways to an explosive end? Written by Jon Olsen

Trivia

Originally the film ended with Bigfoot fleeing from Darcy's horrible poetry and leaping to his death from the edge of Ape Canyon. Devastated, Darcy jumped over the edge after Bigfoot. Director Jon Olsen and producer Trevor Guthrie traveled back up to Humboldt County from the Bay Area to shoot the new, improved ending. On the way their ride broke down, and they were forced to hitch-hike most of the 200 mile journey. The finished film, with the new ending, was completed less than a week later - just hours before its premiere at the Parkway Theater in Oakland, CA. See more »

Bigfoot: North America's Greatest Lover!
12 May 2008 | by (Willow Creek, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a work of pure comic genius. It is backed by extensive research into the more extreme aspects of the Sasquatch in popular culture, substantiated by Native American lore centuries old. Yes, there is a history of inter-species hominid communality. The soundtrack music constitutes a masterfully applied parody, moving from love-comedy, through pornography, to tragedy. Though made on an obviously low budget, that is part of the point--this film is a satire of human romantic motivation as much as it is of the b-movie bigfoot monster genre. If you meet the filmmaker he will probably give you a promotional t-shirt, which is even cooler than the film. Its climactic ending made me weep.
