When a merciless bear poacher is caught and arrested deep in the woods of a state park, he and his truck are taken to a neglected precinct in the heart of a dying city.

Now, stuck in an unfamiliar world, the creature will let nothing and no one stop it from coming face-to-face with the unscrupulous man who ruthlessly ripped it from its environment. Taking an inventive and action packed approach, "Sasquatch Assault" breaths new and exciting life into the immortal legend of Bigfoot. Written by Synthetic Cinema International

A low-budget effort, done with a lot of heart
25 December 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Greedy poachers capture the mythical sasquatch in the backwoods of Smalltown, America. Through some unfortunate circumstances, said monster gets dropped at the local police station, and starts eviscerating everyone in the vicinity.

The plot, like most monster movies, fits on a napkin, and the director has a hard time deciding if this is to be taken seriously. Some of the murders are wrenching, some completely goofy. Switching from comedy to horror makes for some intriguing and unbalanced 90 minutes, but at least it kept me on my toes.

Most leads are very capable, especially Sarah J. Ahearn. I also enjoyed the love-bitten rookie cop, as well as the naughty kickboxing secretary. Lots of colourful characters in this one. Unfortunately, the man-in-a-suit monster is not believable for a minute, which is ultimately this otherwise pleasant and kooky movie's downfall.
