It has been something of an on-again off-again quest of mine, over the years, to watch as many bigfoot films as I can. There have been some good and some bad, but there was one that always seemed to elude me. Now, with its brand new remaster and first time Blu-ray release, there was no better time to finally sit down and watch Ryan Schifrin’s Abominable.

With films like Hunting the Legend, Willow Creek, and Bigfoot Wars being released, 2014 was definitely the year of the bigfoot. Although it isn’t officially released until tomorrow, another Sasquatch related flick that was all over the place last year was Exists, directed by Eduardo Sanchez who is perhaps most known for directing The Blair Witch Project.

Willow Creek Review
I know this is another one that Roger did recently, but I just had to throw my hat in the ring for this one. I want to start off by saying how much I love that the subject of bigfoot in horror movies is almost becoming its own sub-genre. I love the subject matter and I think that it being paired with the found footage craze is like pairing peanut butter and jelly… it just makes sense! My recent review [...]
Willow Creek Review
It seems like I was waiting forever to see Bobcat Goldthwait’s bigfoot film, Willow Creek. I remember hearing about it, reading about it, watching the trailer, and being ridiculously excited about it. My interest was piqued. However, it seemed like the film disappeared from my radar for a while. I did some digging and actually came across it on the Playstation Store, of all places. I debated buying it for a few days because I am not a fan [...]
Hunting the Legend Review
The found footage sub-genre has covered everything at this point. Filmmakers have ‘captured’ ghosts, trolls, and even Frankenstein’s monster on film, but no material seems more fitting to be captured by a film crew than the legend of bigfoot. Justin Steeley explores this topic in his 2013 found footage film, Hunting the Legend.

I tend to get a kick out of those SyFy (Sci Fi) Channel original films, regardless of how big of a schlock-fest they end up being. I grew up on Creature Feature and Monstervision, so I have a big soft spot for cornball cinema. Ryan Schifrin’s 2006 film, Abominable, is a prime example of expecting nothing and getting a decent surprise.
