I've turned just about every Bigfoot movie I've ever seen off after several minutes, they're just so terrible. Big hairy thing in the woods kills people. That should work! Why doesn't it?
If it were a killer tiger, a killer saber-tooth, a killer crocodile, a killer shark, then I could get behind it but there's never been any instance where a Bigfoot has attacked anybody. no, I'm not including the "Bigfoot love slave" tabloid trash, that's entertainment, though for whom I really wonder. There's just something deeply intangible about those movies that bothers met, not to mention the terrible creature effects. Just because it's humanoid in shape doesn't give you cause to crap out on the whole thing.
Yeah, I'm a bit strong about that whole thing.
Anyway, the only Bigfoot movies I ever liked were comedies- why they had better creature effects than the horror films (Magic in the Water
vs Beyond Loch Ness
, anyone?) is beyond me. One was Harry and the Hendersons
and the other was about a Bigfoot that befriended the boy of divorced parents and played basketball for the town. You're searching for it right now, don't lie.
The worst? I'd have to say The Legend of Bigfoot
(1976). It's a plodding film that drags on and on through stock footage, old home videos and dramatizations of a guy in a poor furry costume, It's listed as a documentary but a big MOCK
really belongs in front of it. I really tried to enjoy it but that proved impossible.
I won't mention anything that aired on Scifi, those go without saying
