Quite possibly the best Sasquatch movie out there.
22 January 2014 | by abenedict86See all my reviews

This is honestly one of the best movies involving Sasquatch that I have ever had the pleasure of watching. The acting is great (the director made an excellent choice casting Lily Rabe for the lead), the locations being filmed are beautiful and the Sasquatch is a breath of fresh air. It is about time that they portray this creature as something other than a blurry shadow or blood covered angry monster stalking campers out in the woods. Seriously, the special (practical) effects on this costume are amazing. In some shots, it almost feels like they actually filmed the real thing instead of an actor in a suit. You sit there thinking, "I wouldn't doubt that this is what it would really look like if I stumbled upon one of these creatures."

I really hope that more people have the opportunity to see this fantastic piece of work and spread the word to other movie lovers after they are done watching. This is a very relaxing and calming movie that will stick with you long after you view it and may even change your mind about whether you believe in Sasquatch or not.
