A VERY Creepy Film.....
9 May 2003 | by warrior1967See all my reviews

I saw this one as a child and it scared the crap out of me and even today it STILL has the ability to creep me out. The last 15 minutes are filled with suspense and the interaction between Dennis Fimple(Pahoo)and John David Carson(Rives)would lead you to believe that these guys were buddies even when the camera was off. One of the finest Bigfoot films(along with Legend of Boggy Creek)that is best viewed alone with the lights out.
