"Assault of the Sasquatch" Movie Review

                    Assault of the Sasquatch

Year made  -  2009

Rated  -  Unrated

Approx. time  -  85 min.

                                          Story line

Forest creature meets the big city. A poacher captures Sasquatch, but before he can deliver him to his client he is busted by game wardens.
He along with his impounded truck containing Sasquatch are brought into the middle of the city for holding in a sparsely filled police station. Soon afterwards the beast escapes from the truck. After treating his wounded foot and grabbing a bite to eat, he explores his new surrounding. He is soon spotted by two nerdy members of the Sasquatch Society peeping in a window. They spend the rest of the movie trying to relocate Sasquatch. As Sasquatch makes his way back to the police station he throws rocks at one his victim. Something that's often reported, with run ins with Sasquatch. However this attack
escalates to bigger rocks, then to a tire and then  a full size mailbox. Thank god there are no mailboxes in the forest.
Sasquatch then soon spots the poacher and will stop at nothing to get to him. In the end it becomes a bare knuckle, knock down brawl between the two. 
The acting wasn't great and I thought Sasquatch looked a little to much like a gorilla. The movie was shot at various locations in Connecticut. With most the the scenes shot in the city there wasn't much as scenery goes unless you like the dirty streets of the city. The best part of the movie was when the police station secretary / ex exotic dancer goes one on one with Sasquatch. She pulls a butterfly knife out of her garder and with a police shield she kicks his ass (balls). This scene was worth the price of emission. Sasquatch does get his revenge later.

If you like to laugh you might want to get this movie, Overall I give this movie a rating of 2 out of a possible 5. Tha acting wasn't great and some of the scenes didn't make sense, but it'll make you laugh.

Next week I'll be reviewing Primal

'Creature from Black Lake' Movie review

                  Creature from Black Lake

Year made  -  1976

Rated  -  PG

Approx.  time  -  90 min.

                                           Story line

 Being fueled by stories of Sasquatch by there teacher, two students from the University of Chicago head to the swamps of Louisiana when they hear reports of a bipedal creature attacking a trapper. After arriving in Oil City they begin to ask about the creature for their research only to find most of the townspeople unwilling to help. Soon afterward they're warned by the town sheriff not to stir up trouble. They continue to press the issue and after a few more run ins with the sheriff, they're told to leave the area and to forget about the monster. 
However they ignore the sheriff and camp out by Black Lake. A decision they soon regret.

My overall thoughts on this movie is that it's not bad. The acting wasn't that great and with it being made in 1976 the special effects is pretty much non-existent. However the way they only showed the sasquatch in the shadows you never really got a good look at it. It gave it a scarier appearence I thought. If you grew up in the 70's these were the type of movies you saw. With all the special effects and costume designs in the movie now a days it kind of nice to see an older film once in a while. As long as the sasquatch costume isn't hideous. I would recommend having this in your sasquatch film selection. So with that said, get yourself a hamburger, fries and a coke and watch the movie.

As you can see I give this movie a 2 out of 5

"Sasquatch Mountian" Movie Review

                      Sasquatch Mountain
                                                (Devil on the mountian)

Year made  -  2006

Rated  -   R

Approx. time  -  90 min. 

                             Story Line

A group of bank robbers rob a small town bank in Arizona. In there attempt to elude the police, they are involved in a crash with a young woman. With the police in hot pursuit they grab the woman as hostage and flee into the forest to escape, with the police close behind. The thieves soon realize that the police aren't the only ones after them. Sasquatch however isn't taking sides and attacks both parties. The cops and robbers soon fine themselves joining forces in order to survive.
The actors were good lead by Lance Henriksen, who has been in a few sasquatch films and Cerina Vincent (Cabin Fever) The movie was filmed in the scenic Coconino National Forest and in the towns of Flagstaff and Williams Arizona. I found the movie to be realistic and the sasquatch, I thought was very good. A good haircut would have made it better. I wasn't sure how the sasquatch could see thru all the hair in his face. Maybe he lost his rubberband and couldn't put his hair up. I would recommend any sasquatch fan to see this movie and if you collect sasquatch movies, don't hesitate to get this one if you don't already have it.

I give this movie a 3 out of 5

"Abominable" Movie Review


Year made  -  2005

Rated -  R

Approx. time  -  94 min.

                              Story Line

Preston, a paraplegic returns to his cabin in a small mountianside community for the first time since his mountian climbing accident, which claimed the life of his wife and left him paralized.  Shortly after arriving he finds that he has some new neighbors. Five women and one large forest dweller.  As he helplessly watches, the women are terrorized by sasquatch. In a desperate attempt to escape sasquatch, he tries to lure him thru the front door of his cabin as he and one of the neighbors flee out the back way.

Acting  -  The acting in this movie was good. A lot of veteran
                       actors appeared in this film.

Scenery  -  The movie was filmed in Idyllwild, Ca.  Most of it
                          filmed between the two houses of Preston and his
                          neighbors so you didn't get to see much of the
                          beauty of this area except for a few scenes when
                          they showed the mountians.

Believable  -  Maybe. It's a stretch that a sasquatch 
                               would go on a vicious, terrorizing 
                               attack, unless it was provoked or
                               protecting its territory and family.

Sasquatch  -    The body wasn't to bad, but the face 
                                was terrible I thought. His eyes were 
                                bugged out and his teeth were to long
                                A trip to the dentist definitely needed.
                                A added note on the sasquatch.    
Recommendation   -    Yes. The movie overall was 
                                                  good and would be a nice 
                                                  addition to anyones collection.    

My overall rating for Abominable is a 3 out of 5.
