ACTING - A veteran group of actors lead by Lance Henriksen
did a excellent job.
SCENERY - Was very nice with all the filming done in the
Vancouver, Canada area. The majority was filmed
deep in the forest and gave you a real good look
at what the forests of the Pacific northwest look
BELIEVABLE - Yes, absolutely
SASQUATCH - They did a nice job on not letting you get a
good look at sasquatch until the end. This
gave the movie a little more suspense.
When they did finally show sasquatch clearly
I was a little disappointed. He looked like
a developed a case of mange. Which is
possible. I'll let you decided on your own.
RECOMMENDED - 100 percent yes. The acting, the story,
the scenery were wonderful.
My overall rating is 3 1/2 foots. I would have given it 4 except I wasn't thrilled with the sasquatch. Everything else was great. So if you don't have this or haven't seen the movie, go out and get a copy right away. You won't regret it.
