Storyline

For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway - a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed - something not exactly human, but not completely animal - an urban legend come to terrifying life - a Bigfoot seeking murderous revenge for the death of its child. Written by Lionsgate

It has its moments.
12 March 2016 | by Zbigniew_KrycsiwikiSee all my reviews

This hand-held-footage tale of a group of college-aged people on a camping trip being set upon by Sasquatch isn't great, but it does have its moments.

Moments of suspense as they hear sometimes far away sounds, moments of terror as they hear Sasquatch growling and running toward them. One horrifying moment when we see what's his name trying to get away by racing away on a bike, and the creature running along side him, keeping up, with no difficulty. Also two moments of annoying behaviour from obnoxious characters, for no other reason than to have a pair of cheap jump scares within a couple of minutes' time (blasting the car horn, and then slamming the brakes)

I don't have a problem with shaky cam, if it suits the plot of the film. My problem with it is that I think it's difficult to sustain a full length movie with it. The creature effects were decent, the acting was hit and miss, there was a bit of atmosphere in the shots of the cabin and woods, but I wonder if the film would have played better with some occasionally stationary camera work, with mostly just Sasquatch's scenes, and a few establishing shots presented as found footage? As it is, it seems like two thin ideas (found footage, and Sasquatch) mashed together and padded to full length.

I agree with its 5/ 10 IMDb user rating.
