A lonely tow-truck driver gets caught in a deadly struggle between a pair of bank robbers with a beautiful hostage, local cops, and a monster that has come down from the Arizona mountains to eat human flesh. Written by
"Sasquatch Mountain" is a pretty decent Sasquatch movie.
A group of bank robbers, lead by Vin Stewart, (Michael Worth) Travis, (Craig Wasson) Wade, (Ruffealo Degruttola) and Kayla, (Karen Kim) making their escape, crash into Erin, (Cerina Vincent) deep into the woods. Trying to make an escape from the pursuing Police Chief Harris, (Rance Howard) they come into contact with a strange creature in the woods that begins picking them off one by one. Seeking shelter in the home of Chase Jackson, (Lance Henriksen) who helps them to reveal that the mysterious being is a Sasquatch. Forced to work together, the three teams are forced to work together to make it out alive.
The Good News: In the recent tradition of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch movies come out, this is pretty much a middle of the road affair. The fact that the Sasquatch is never able to be plainly seen until the end gives him an air of mystery that few have. We only catch glimpses or blurred focus shots, making it hard to detail tell what is out there, and this makes the viewing if the creature pretty hard to do. It's not that there's much of an opportunity to catch a glimpse of it, but that trying to get one is pretty hard. The viciousness of the creature is pretty apparent early on, and it never really has any problem providing gory deaths. We get a back-breaking bear-hug, a neck broken, a very brutal beating and a couple mangled body aftereffects no less. This also has some good action sequences throughout that are nicely used to keep it moving along. The chase in the middle and the eventual rescue are a perfect illustration. There's several great suspenseful stalking parts coupled with some great gun-play and fighting. A couple of deaths certainly doesn't hurt the cause, either. The ending assault through the forest is just as good. The reason for the conflagration is pretty ingenious one, and has some creativity to it. That was one of the best parts of the film.
The Bad News: There really wasn't a whole lot against it, but they are serious errors. The biggest distraction is the camera that shoots it. It makes it look very unprofessional and like something that was shot on the cheap in someone's backyard. Normally, had this been used for only a few scenes, it would've been a little more tolerable, but it lasts throughout the whole film and it really grates on the nerves. This really lowers the film a tad. Also lowering the rating is the Sasquatch himself. It's great that it's hard to see him at times, but when we do get to see it, it looks really bad. It's got the tradition appearance of being a bunch of carpeting left-overs strung together into some vague form of a hairy beast. It rarely looks imposing and basically just relies on it's actions to generates fear towards it. It's a major distraction from the rest as it looks pretty bad. They got the dirty part down but it doesn't look that good. It also got a little slow in the middle where the attacks come at a slower pace. It doesn't send it out on as high a note as it could've since it pretty much stays that way through until the ending. There's a couple of small little nit-picks here and there that I didn't like all that much, but they won't detriment as much as the other bigger problems. However, those big problems are big ones to overcome.
The Final Verdict: It's not that spectacular a Sasquatch film, and comes in right in the middle of the recent wave of movies featuring the beast. It's got too many problems to be anything more than a guilty pleasure, if you actually check it out.
