This humorous film poses fundamental questions about the origins of man, while reveling in the sub-culture which surrounds the Bigfoot mystery. This is the story of the hunt for Bigfoot and the four old-men who have been searching for the elusive, mythical creature for the last 40 years. Inspired by the discovery of Yeti (abominable snowman) tracks in Nepal in the early 1950's, followed by giant footprints in Northern California in 1958, these young adventurers set out to find an animal which science said didn't exist. Originally, working together on the Pacific Northwest Bigfoot Expedition of 1960-62 while funded by a Texas oil millionaire named Tom Slick - these four men began never-ending rivalry and a life-long quest to find this creature.

Extensive Archival Footage and Interviews Make This a MUST BUY!!
2 February 2016 | by lasttoleaveSee all my reviews

This is by far my favorite Bigfoot documentary of all time. It is about Bigfoot, sure, but centers around the "Four Horsemen" and their quest finding proof of the creature. Rene Dahinden, John Green, Grover Krantz, and Peter Byrne are all interviewed extensively with incredible archival footage of their pursuits, many rare and never seen before, and there's a lot of it! There's an excellent historical overview of popular Bigfoot reports as well. This is a must for anyone interested in the subject, new or veteran, and is worth every penny. It also includes interviews with Robert Pyle, Lapseritis, and even laymen giving their opinions on the subject.

Favorite parts? Archival footage is extensive and incredible. Also, everything Rene Dahinden says, especially about Lapseritis.
