Forteana and horror have always been closely linked, and it doesn't get much more fortean than Bigfoot. There are a wealth of Sasquatch-themed horrors heading our way in the next few months (Travis Bain's THROWBACK, mockumentary DEAD BIGFOOT: A TRUE STORY, Mike Lenzini's BEAST: A MONSTER AMONG MEN, Mark Bacci's THE WOODS, Bobcat Goldthwait's WILLOW CREEK), but no amount of hairy horror hominids is ever enough. Which brings us to writer/director Wes Sullivan's NIGHTBEASTS. With an extensive background in animation, including work for Disney and Warner Bros, NIGHTBEASTS is Sullivan's first live action feature, and stars GREMLINS' Zach Galligan as a father and hunter attempting to protect his family from a whole tribe of the feral man-beasts. Shot on film, and boasting non-stop action and some sumptuous cinematography, NIGHTBEASTS transcends its sometimes dubious acting and clunky dialogue to deliver a rousing horror/action B-movie hybrid. Well worth checking out.
