"Blood Forest" movie review

                               Blood Forest

Year made  -  2009
Rated   -  Mature Audience

Approx. Time  -  92 min. 

                                           Story Line

The residents of the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas are being slaughtered by a Bigfoot. After getting word of the killings a newspaper in the U.K. send a reporter to investigate.
Meanwhile an Indian Medicine man who is supposed to be the middleman between the people and the beast is being forced out of his home by a new housing development.
The town sheriff believes the Medicine man is responsible for all the carnage plaguing his town and wants him dead.
Another low budget Bigfoot film that doesn't deliver. The Medicine man who has 10 days to move out of his home does nothing but wanders around the town and nearby woods. There is no clue as to what he's doing besides getting some exercise. The reporter records some interviews with the locals and doesn't look too focused to the job on hand. If you're one that enjoys the look of a great Bigfoot suit (costume) you will be totally disappointed. You do not see him once during the movie except at the very end and you only see his very human looking face off a reflection of a camera lens. In the Bigfoot attack scenes you get to hear a loud heartbeat and what sounds like a out of shape man who just ran 2 miles and  is trying to catch his breath.

I give this movie a 1 out of a possible 5.

If you like watching a Bigfoot film were you never see a Bigfoot, Blobsquatch or even a faint shadow of a Bigfoot and you like heavy breathing, then this is a movie for you. Otherwise avoid this and spend your money on something else.

1313 "Bigfoot Island" movie review

                          Bigfoot Island

Year made  -  2011

Rated  -  Unrated directors cut

Approx. time  -   72 min. 

                              Story line

Part of the 1313 production series, this movie had two things going for it. First it was shot in beautiful Vancouver Island, B.C. in Canada
Second was the fact this movie was only 72 minutes long. Thank god.
This has to be the worst Bigfoot film ever made, bar none.
You have a group of boys, young men who get together at a cabin to get their batteries charged before starting their school year. A year earlier at their last get together, they try to take advantage of a girl but was stopped by one of the boys before it went to far. The girl seeking revenge calls for the spirit of the forest to avenge her. The whole movie is watching the boys mostly shirtless one by one walking, running, or kayaking to the cabin with Sasquatch following and then exacting revenge for the girl. A total of more than 54 minutes watching the boys make their way to the cabin and then being chased by Sasquatch before he put the hammer down on them. Another 4-5 minutes of the girl chanting, Oh great Forest Spirit avenge your maiden. That's about 60 minutes of a 72 minute movie. The Sasquatch was never on the Island, all his scenes were shot in Ca. and you can tell. A couple scenes were shot on a clear cut area on a logging road. The tree line was 100 feet or more away from the boys. Yet when Sasquatch caught up to them he would swing his arms like he was pounding them. He looked like he was in the middle of the forest when there wasn't a tree within 100 feet of them.Unless you like young Calvin Klein models you don't want to waste your time or money on this movie. I certainly would not recommend this movie to my worst enemy. I wouldn't even suggest putting it in any ones collection to just boost your collection count.

My overall rating on this movie is 0 out of 5
After watching this movie I threw it into the fire
I video taped it but can't get it uploaded
I'm sure you get the picture.

"Primal" movie review


Year made  -  2007

Rated  -  R

Approx. time  -  80 min.


Sasquatch gone wild. Low budget B-movie that has Sasquatch killing anyone he sees. The script was poorly written, the camera work was nauseating, and the special effects was horrific.
   You have people disappearing on the mountain and Wade the ranger knows why. His bosses don't want word getting out so Wade keeps quiet. Now you add college students doing a field survey on the animals in the area, a few meth heads and Wades sister and her fiance and you have enough food to feed Sasquatch for two life times.
  It looke like most of the budget was spent on the Sasquatch costume, about $200.00. That should tell you all you need to know. Sasquatches arms looked like to furry stove pipes. Every time Sasquatch would go on the attack, the camera would go crazy, flashing and zooming in and out. I was afraid to watch the entire movie because I thought I might have a seizure. Blood looked like it was thrown on a clear glass attached to the camera. The special effects in whole looked like it was done by a bunch of 6 graders. The ending was also very disappointing. Actually I think if you gave some 6 graders $5000.00 they could do a better job. I wouldn't recommend seeing this movie. If you're looking to increase your Sasqutch library, go ahead and buy it. But I would bury it deep in your stack of movies. The only reason I watch the entire movie was because of the review I was doing on this movie.

My overall rating on this movie is 1 out of 5.

Next weeks review hasn't been decided yet. I have a couple new ones coming and I'll wait to see if I get in time. I'll decide in a few days. I'm hoping to do Bigfoot Island.
