Messing With Sasquatch: The Movie
30 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

-From the director of The Blair Witch Project comes a film about, and I kid you not, five teenagers who are on a cabin getaway and are hunted by Bigfoot. The teens must survive and find a way to escape in this interesting found-footage film.

-Exists is one of the most cliché movies I've ever seen, but I didn't really expect different. Especially because it's a film version of the Messing With Sasquatch commercials.

-The story is pretty cliché. There are five teens, the white leader, the black tough guy, the blonde, the smart girl, and the unlikable cameraman, who are at this cabin for some reason and nobody knows they are there. And then Bigfoot.

-The tone is pretty creepy, as much as I don't like found-footage films. It's still effective and it has a theme of 'you reap what you sow' which I found compelling. The pace is also pretty good. They get straight to the point, but they also miss some opportunity for character development.

-The acting's not worth anything in this. Everyone fills their horror stereotypes well, which means they are all not good.

-All you see of Bigfoot himself is pretty much what people would claim is Bigfoot in, well, real footage. So effective. He does also show up at the end, which is rewarding. Good job makeup team! -The music is eerie, but at one point I was wondering if it was even necessary.

-The scares are meh. The jumpscares are not scary, but the suspenseful elements are suspenseful.

-The film is rated-R for language really. It has some moderate language throughout.

-So Exists takes a super-cliché premise and makes an actually interesting found-footage film about Bigfoot. I found myself enjoying it. I will say that if you like the style, Exists is worth watching on Netflix/Redbox. I am only going to give it a 6.5 for its unoriginality and acting though.
