Based on the recently acquired journals of Texan Dale S. Rogers, this vintage horror tale from IFC Films debunks history books to tell the veracious, harrowing story of a rural Texas community whose residents were terrified for years by a mysterious creature inhabiting the nearby woods.Written by
The movie's first screening was held at the Plestex Theater in Pleasanton, Texas, in the same room as the premiere of Steven Spielberg's major motion picture debut The Sugarland Express (1974), which filmed in the same area with many of the locals cast as extras. See more »
See! I told you! That wasn't no bear I shot at. I ain't crazy. It was some sort of wild, crazy man out there. Some... half breed.

After a series of strange attacks and incidents in a small town, a group of friends get together to hunt down the malicious beast stalking the residents and put an end to it's reign of terror.
This turned out to be a pretty disappointing Bigfoot entry, as this one really could've been quite good had it managed to keep attention and focus on the strange attacks afflicting the towns-members instead of the ungodly amount of time with the residents and their problems. Not that a little info isn't bad on them, but they come at the expense of the creature attacks as it's mostly getting a complete history of the locals before stuff starts to happen, and the creature doesn't start getting in on things until just under the hour mark. Those are really good, with some pretty brutal attacks getting in some pretty decent gore shots and the day-time setting for the whole film is rather pleasant, if only the creature's costume would've looked better. Still, the lowered amount of time spent here on these sections of the film means it's quite a while before we get to the good stuff, flawed as it is by's low-budget nature that somewhat hurts it, but overall this is a throwback to the Grindhouse style of shockers so those who enjoy them will find a lot more here instead of more traditional creature-feature fans.
Rated R: Graphic Language and Graphic Violence.
