Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie

The key to making a compelling documentary is stumbling upon characters within it who ultimately prove to be more interesting and memorable than the storyline itself. King Of Kong had it. Word Play had it. And Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie has it, too. In spades. Featuring a couple of weather-beaten, eccentric buddies in a perennial hunt for the elusive Sasquatch, this indie flick is more about the mentality that drives a smalltown quest for fame and recognition, the occasionally prickly intricacies of friendship, and the unerring belief in a dream that may never eventuate, than it is about roping in the beast. Though that would have been nice to see, too. Engaging, entertaining and endearing, this is one of the better documentaries I’ve seen.

Heads up

Looks like someone is remaking "The Legend of Boggy Creek". Well, not really remaking it as much as taking the name and making a movie based on a local indian legend.

Legend of Boggy Creek, if taken in another context, especially in the UK and Australia, can also mean a movie about a blocked toilet!

Your right Sherb!

I guess us Amityville board members should be used to it by now; making a basic, crappy horror movie and slapping the label "Amityville" on it just to sell! :?

These are corny but kinda funny. These guys, BUTCHYKID624, made a ton of these and they are on Youtube. These are also a couple of the cleanest they have done LOL. They can get kinda raunchy in other clips.

Here's one produced by Tim Yancey!

http://www.facebook.com/bigfootfilm

http://whofortedblog.com/the-bigfoot-hunter-searching/


In the summer of 2006, two Sasquatch hunters led a group of curious, young paranormal investigators into the hills of southern New York on a quest for evidence of the legendary beast known as Bigfoot.

Shot completely on consumer level equipment with a budget under $50, this documentary follows Tim Holmes of the Southern Tier Bigfoot Watch and Becky Sawyer of Searching for Bigfoot Inc. as they trek deep into Connecticut Hill, a location rife with reports of mysterious monster sightings and unexplained events.

Although initially skeptical of Tim’s wild stories and unnerved by Becky’s militant commands, things get weird after bizarre encounter in the pines, and the group is forced to reassess their beliefs regarding the existence of Bigfoot.

Sometimes funny, sometimes scary, but always entertaining, The Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching is a story that asks, what means more in the end: the destination or the journey; the evidence or the story?

If we are to believe the reports of Bigfoot hating dogs, then we are to also believe the top clip (Alarming Bigfoot Video)to be total bulls**t. More like a guy dressed up in an ape costume because he lost his longjohns?

I think the bottom clip to be an outtake of Jackass 3??

On October 21st, 2011, a whole mess of people converged upon the tiny town of Waverly, New York for the premiere of a documentary about the larger-than-life personalities wrapped up in the pursuit of Sasquatch.

That film is called "The Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching".

But getting to, and getting through, the sold out event was an adventure in and of itself. So much so, that we needed to document it for the dinguses who didn't make it.

Meet the gang behind the film as they deal with missing stars and broke down cars. Ever wondered how much it would cost to buy one hundred hamburgers at Burger King? How to deal with a rogue, story-telling hobo stealing the stage at your event? How clean the hotel room headboards are in Sayre, Pennsylvania? Now is your chance to find out.

If you want to see what you've missed, what you can look forward to, or just want to relive the fun, plop down and enjoy "Big Shoes To Fill: Behind the World Premiere of 'Still Searching'".

OK, finally got to watch the trailer and I'm going for the longer film a little later.

Does the main guy with the glasses sound a little like Frankie McDowell, or is it just me???

I LOVE this qoute though:

I can almost see a bigfoot hiding in the background, rolling his eyes at more people "hunting" him with a camera ... before he gives them the finger.

Gettin' 'Boggy' with it
Pierce's daughter plans re-release of dad's cult film


Pamula Pierce Barcelou has gained copyright to one of her father Charles B. Pierce's most beloved films, "The Legend of Boggy Creek," and is having the movie restored for a future re-release, she said.

Shot in the early 1970s in a docudrama style, "The Legend of Boggy Creek" became a cult hit for Pierce, a longtime Texarkana resident who also directed "The Town That Dreaded Sundown" and other independent feature films.

"The Legend of Boggy Creek" chronicles the based-on-real-life encounters between Fouke-area residents and the Fouke Monster—a shaggy, Bigfoot-esque creature said to roam the nearby woods and swampy waterways.

Barcelou said Steve Ledwell of Ledwell & Son assigned her copyright of both "Boggy Creek" and another Pierce film, "Bootleggers." Ledwell's father, L.W., helped finance "The Legend of Boggy Creek," which found success as a low-budget, drive-in creature feature.
