    That was sort of the E.T. of Bigfoot movies. Yeah Rick Baker made an incredible suit, but it's a pretty "kiddie" film.

    As cool as Jeffery COmbs is, his character doesnt even have a name. He was credited as Clerk, which means he's cannon fodder. People should see Faust:For Love of the Damned and see how good Combs is as the straight man (even though that movie kinda sucks)

    The hardest thing about making a Bigfoot movie is the the monster. I saw the trailer and there was a quick glimpse of the monster and it wasnt very good. It kinda looked like a Disney animatronic.I'll probably check it out sooner of later.
     
  5. I had an idea for a Bigfoot movie. But I agree with cerealkiller on this particular concept. The hardest thing about Bigfoot is the costume and how to do it without making it look silly.

    Harry and the Hendersons did it great, which was of course due in part with the wonderful performance of Kevin Peter Hall(RIP). If I had to make a movie about Bigfoot my idea would revolve around less is more, less is scarier, and when you finally see the monster you're scared ****less.

    My particular concept is very similar to that of Silent Hill and using a lot of atmosphere, sounds, and so forth to create a creepy vibe.

    I think a Bigfoot would be good, but not as a horror film. If it was hunting and stalking it would be scary, but ultimately seeing the creature would be a letdown, I think.

    I think the problem is, Bigfoot is hard to actually make scary. Unless they wanted to go really unrealistic (I mean as far as what they think it looks like), it's basically just a man-ape hybrid, both of which people are used to.


    There's a book, I'd have to find it to get the title. A Native American man, suffering from mental problems as a result of being a Green Beret in Vietnam, goes on a spirit quest to try to sort his life out. He sees a Sasquatch, decides that is the spirit intended for him. He follows it for months, and then years, and is followed in turn by researchers studying the creature. It would make a great movie. Not a horror movie though.

    I think they should go in a different direction.

    A sensitive and moving story of a Yeti and Sasquatch tending sheep up in the mountains one magical summer, where they slowly discover their feelings.

    This summer ... BIGFOOT MOUNTAIN.

    wait, which is it, Abominable Snowman or bigfoot ?

    2 different things, my cryptozooilogically uninformed friend.

    I refuse to click on a link for such a lame looking poster.

    This could be the first good Bigfoot horror movie.

    They should set in somewhere between the 1930s-1960s. Loosely use stories from people who claim to have had encouters. Have it similar to Jaws in how the threat is rarely seen, show it from Bigfoot's perspective for some scenes.

    My brother was going to make a really a low-to-no-budget Yetti movie with his friend. It'll probably air on local cable, if it ever gets made. :p

    There's a picture of it in the new Fangoria. A very, weird choice as that is hardly a simian-style attribute. :confused:

    It's out in Seattle and New York. Just opened today in Los Angeles.

    It's supposed to be on the Sci Fi channel next month though. :confused:

    It is the only way they could get it to look terrifying.Simian behaviour and features are not sufficient for such a horror movie.A big minus from the start,if I may say so.
