In "Ape Canyon" a lone Bigfoot (North America's Greatest Lover) roams the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He brings his gift of Red Hot Sasquatch Love to nature-loving ladies everywhere, whether they're hugging trees or simply camping and hiking. Bored waitress Darcy (Clover Lutter) had one unforgettable encounter and now she wants more. Night and day, she combs the woods for Bigfoot, calling to him, reciting love poems, and yearning for the wild, hairy touch of the beast who can satisfy her better than any man. Darcy's jealous husband Bill (Chris Henry) is also hot on the trail of Sasquatch, but he's coming with guns blazing. Time is running out for Bigfoot. Will Darcy win his heart before it's too late- or will the consequences of his untamed libido bring his wild ways to an explosive end? Written by Jon Olsen

Did You Know?


Originally the film ended with Bigfoot fleeing from Darcy's horrible poetry and leaping to his death from the edge of Ape Canyon. Devastated, Darcy jumped over the edge after Bigfoot. Director Jon Olsen and producer Trevor Guthrie traveled back up to Humboldt County from the Bay Area to shoot the new, improved ending. On the way their ride broke down, and they were forced to hitch-hike most of the 200 mile journey. The finished film, with the new ending, was completed less than a week later - just hours before its premiere at the Parkway Theater in Oakland, CA. See more »

Sorry Jon...
25 July 2006 | by billwenhamSee all my reviews

I know the director, and realize he's passionate about his work, and upon his request I viewed this movie.

It was one of THE worst movies I have ever seen, and ended up not finishing it with only (I can only hope) 15 minutes left into the movie.

I only made it as far as I did because I knew the director, otherwise I don't think I could have even watch that much of the movie.

Don't get me wrong, low budget indie films are great. In fact, I tend to love those movies more than the ons Hollywood puts out - but this movie.

*sigh* But Jon, I have faith in you.

I know you'll do something amazing, because like I said, you're passionate about your work, and that's something I admire about you.
