Bigfoot meets found footage, again.
21 July 2014 | by victoryismineblastSee all my reviews

As of late Bigfoot and found footage seem to be combined a lot. Bigfoot movies are generally full of mystery and can be a lot of fun. Not this one however.

Five years ago, Chris went hunting with his father, who was killed. Chris believes it was a Bigfoot that killed him. Now he's grown up and wants to return to the scene of the crime and exact revenge. Chris hires a cameraman and sound guy for seven days. He buys a semi-automatic rifle and shotgun. He enlists his girlfriend and best friend to accompany him and even rents an attack dog for protection.

What follows is a found footage horror that follows the formula of The Blair Witch Project pretty closely.

The trio arrive at the town and interview the townspeople. Then they descend upon the forest in search of the elusive Bigfoot. This is the part where the tension builds, right? Wrong. Nothing much happens for a very long time. In fact nothing really happens until the last 15 minutes, and even that isn't very interesting. No build up and little payoff make for a mediocre experience.

As a Bigfoot AND found footage fan I can't recommend this one as it doesn't really deliver on the scares.
