Mostly filmed around Crescent City, California, during the February each of two sequential years. That time frame and location were selected for the expected drizzle and overcast weather conditions. However, filming commenced near the start of a multi-year California drought and the production had to work around weeks of blue skies by using fog machines and hanging large drapes to block out the sun. It did finally rain a little the first year-- the last day of filming. See more »
Easily the best bigfoot film with outstanding practical effects.
This is as good as it gets for the Sasquatch/bigfoot genre with absolutely brilliant practical effects focusing on the bigfoot/witch makeup/design, and very realistic gore detail. The story is somewhat interesting with the native folklore mythology, however isn't totally engrossing overall with some cliche tropes scattered throughout and a dialogue that is truly awful. However what this film focuses on perfectly are the ominous visuals and the unrelenting brutality, and it honestly looks better and more believable than most big budget horror films doused in oversaturated cgi, which makes this even more of an accomplishment due to its low budget. There are several Predator homages/influences but i don't see them as being ripoffs like some have stated. The acting is pretty mediocre on all fronts but thats kind of to be expected as a secondary aspect of a film of this nature. Overall if you enjoy bigfoot/sasqautch material at all, and appreciate practical make up/effects, this is a must see. I also recommend a 2014 bigfoot film called Exists which is also pretty solid though not as good as this.
