So, I totally liked this movie - kind of a lot. I REALLY didn’t expect to. We watched this on a bit of a revamped mini-Scary Movie Club meet up, with a new friends and coworker Ann. I’d almost forgotten about the entirely different experience of watching a movie in a group vs. alone. I should begin to delineate that in my reviews. Anyway. Guy who’s obsessed with Bigfoot goes out to the Willow Creek, California, to try and find the site of the site of that Bigfoot video - you know the one, where he lopes by and turns to look at the camera - with his girlfriend, who’s reluctant about all of the goofiness of their trip. This movie does a lot of things really well: for instance, they interview people who have supposedly seen Bigfoot, and they’re all real interviewees - they’re people who HAVE seen Bigfoot. They’re not just actors. Great touch, seems super realistic. The movie seems kind of goofy and not that scary, and there’s way too much time spent pre-camping in the woods, but once they’re finally camping, it’s all worth it. The movie really culminates in a pretty terrifying 20ish minute, single shot scene of the couple in the tent. Total recommendation!
