I recently got the chance to watch Nightbeasts on VIMEO, this was a fun homage to the Bigfoot movies from the 1970's and 1980's!I really appreciated the performance from Zach Galligan (Gremlins, Hatchet 2) and of course the cameo from the father of camp himself,Lloyd Kaufman. The first part of the movie really established the characters, having the father vulnerable from his alcohol problem and the loss of his wife really made him relate able and made you care for him, some of the other supporting characters were just OKThe son in the movie, actor Tim Thomas did a good job with his scenes with his father Charles (Galligan) and especially towards the end of the flick.

My enjoyment of this movie depended on the look of the "beasts", this was something that the directors and costume people really got right! If you have seen classics like Night of the Demon (killer Sasquatch flick from the 80's)then you would definitely enjoy their look! They were shaggy and were very intimidating, especially towards the end when they start attacking full speed and in groups. The native American angle to the flick was good too, again it was about building characters and I think Sonny Skyhawk as the tribes chief, really set the mood with the story he told the others at the bonfire.

The ambiance of the film was very moody, I thoroughly enjoyed the foggy settings with the blue crisp colors in the night scenes, this brings me back to classic movies like Pumpkinhead for example. Also there was a scene in the movie where one of the beasts darts in front of the vehicle, that is what stuck with me after the movie, it is those kinds of ideas that make the movie genuinely creepy. Imagine driving down the street and seeing this "shaggyman" dart in front of your car! The score was handled rather well, when the sh@#!t hit the fan, you knew it!

All in all it was a very good flick, the only issues I had with the movie that take it to an 8 instead of a 10 is the acting at times from the supporting staff was dry, and I would have preferred a little more gore, but those are minor complaints to a very good flick! So grab your loved one and dim the lights, and just remember... THEY COME OUT AT NIGHT!
