The Most Insane Bigfoot & Yeti Movies Ever Made

The Most Insane Bigfoot & Yeti Movies Ever Made
Considering they're the best-known cryptids in history, the humanoids known variously as Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Yeti, the Abominable Snowman and so forth don't get much respect in modern cinema. While thousands of hours of film and video have been dedicated to these elusive man-beasts, there's something about the big dude that makes it nearly impossible for filmmakers to take him seriously, or even tell a semi-competent story about him. It's certainly not for a lack of trying; there have been nearly a hundred Bigfoot and Yeti movies released since the '50s. Old-fashioned giant monster romps, found-footage and slasher entries, feel-good family dramas, romantic comedies... even porno flicks. So why are nearly all of them so damn goofy? Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy these insane interpretations; in fact, the crazier they get, the more I dig 'em. So to honor this dubious cinematic legacy, here are two dozen of

Blue Underground Reveals Artwork and More for New Snuff Special Edition

Blue Underground just sent over the specs and artwork for their upcoming release of the hilariously controversial flick Snuff and we've got the skinny! Guess what? There are actually extras this time!

Look for the Blu-ray and DVD in stores on October 22nd. For those of you who don't know, Snuff was originally called Slaughter - a lousy film from husband/wife filmmaker team Michael and Roberta Findlay. When Slaughter's producers deemed it unreleasable, they shelved it while searching for a way to recoup costs. Finally, producer Allan Shackleton decided to cut the film's ending off and replace it with a "real" sequence of an actress being brutally murdered behind the scenes. Hence, Snuff.

Synopsis

Deep in South America, a Manson-like cult leader named Satan cavorts with his bevy of beautiful biker-chick followers while compelling them to kill in his name. When sexy American actress Terry London arrives with producer

Digital Fury: DVD Essentials for September (Part 2)

Black Sunday: Remastered Edition (1960) Lorber Films Blu-ray and DVD Available Now

One of director Mario Bava’s most acclaimed works, Black Sunday is a strikingly photographed “old dark castle” thriller revolving around witchcraft and possession. Barbara Steele (Piranha) gives a hypnotic performance as Katia, the unfortunate look-alike descendent of a witch who intends to possess her. This highly influential film, also shot by Bava, was the precursor to countless American and European gothic horrors. This is the uncut European print with a few extra minutes of footage, a different English track and Robert Nicolosi’s haunting original score. After years of ugly public domain releases, Black Sunday is finally being presented in its original aspect ratio with a high definition transfer struck from a pristine 35Mm archival print.

Special Features:

• Audio commentary by Tim Lucas (author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark).

• Original Bava theatrical trailers.

"Get Out Alive", a creature feature throwback

From writer/director Clay DuMaw and executive producer James Cullen Bressack (My Pure Joy) comes "Get Out Alive". A creature feature throwback to the horror films of yesteryear by capturing that monster movie feel of Shriek of the Mutilated and the sleazyness of Basket Case.

While returning home from their Spring Break vacation, wealthy siblings Paul and Marilyn find themselves stranded at a desolate truck-stop along the back roads up Upstate New York. Before long, they discover that a strange creature is being held in a cage behind the local auto shop, and the shop's mechanic plans on feeding them to the beast. In their attempt to escape, Paul and Marilyn fall prey to a group of homicidal rednecks bent on preserving the secret of this bloodthirsty monster.

Get Out Alive is currently halfway through production. For more info into this project please visit:

Not Available on DVD: Bigfoot

Bigfoot (aka: Sasquatch), the elusive North American apeman whose alleged sightings sparked a craze that swept the nation in the 1970’s, inspired a string of cheap movies that were rushed into theatres then to cash in on the fad. The Legend Of Boggy Creek (1972), Shriek Of The Mutilated (1974), Curse Of Bigfoot (1976) Sasquatch, The Legend Of Bigfoot (1977) all made a quick buck and who can forget the ‘Bigfoot and Wildboy’ TV series and the Bigfoot episode of ‘The Six Million Dolar Man’ (and c’mon, tell me Chewbacca wasn’t inspired by the big hairy guy as well) but none were as gloriously goofy as the low-rent 1970 campfest Bigfoot. A low-budget quickie loaded with Indians, biker gangs, redneck cops, and a whole family of clumsy bigfeet, Bigfoot is about ten times more entertaining than it has any right to be, but it is Not available on DVD.

Bigfoot opens with Joi Lansing
