This movie ROCKS !! - from an audience member
16 March 2015 | by wendylindsay-77591See all my reviews

I'm just an average "Jane" movie attendee who loves thriller/horror films, and I happen to be a Sasquatch enthusiast. I was very fortunate to attend the world premiere in Durham, NC.

Indeed, I got much more than I hoped for or expected... and from an Indie at that !! ( I am guessing here no star wars budget ?)

Do note it's not just another Sasquatch movie either.

You have a believable plot, character development, relationships, great acting and scenery...roller coaster twist and turns, special effects, and more.

I confess, I flew up out of my seat a couple of times !!

Rating 8-9

A few big reasons for my support.

1- Clearly, someone(s) have researched the subject of Sasquatch in depth. The subject is finally treated with the absolute respect that is it deserves. 2- High marks for special effects, from an average Sasquatch movie viewer. Not only are the Sasquatch(s) amazing on the big screen, this movie sets new standards in that never before have we been shown so many different Sasquatches, so many times, and that up close and personal. I strongly recommend to those who love this genre.

Big congrats to all involved and ...whoop !!
