All those guys who started blogs specifically geared towards Bigfoot news are living in an golden era. Those years of enduring long news droughts have finally paid off! I didn’t think it was possible that I’d be writing two Bigfoot stories in one day, let alone one week. But here we are and here’s the news:
As the Independent Boston Film Festival comes to an end today, we’re getting a couple of brand new stills from the upcoming Bobcat Goldthwait directed Willow Creek, which made it’s debut on the 29th. Don’t get too excited, there aren’t any shots of Bigfoot in these stills. However, if you want to see white people concerned and scared, you’ve come to the right place.
As an added bonus, here’s the plot description that the festival provided:
Jim and his girlfriend Kelly are in Willow Creek, California, to retrace the steps of Bigfoot researchers Patterson and Gimlin, who, in 1967, recorded the most famous film of the legendary monster. Kelly is a skeptic, along for the ride to spend time with her boyfriend between acting gigs. Jim, a believer, hopes to capture footage of his own, so his camera is constantly rolling.
The small town is a mecca to the Bigfoot community; sasquatch statues guard the local businesses, murals of the missing link line the roads, and Bigfoot burgers are the town delicacy. The couple interview locals who range from skeptic to believer and from manic to completely menacing. Some of the stories they hear are of chance encounters with a gentle creature, while others are tales of mysterious eviscerations.
On the day that Jim and Kelly plan on hiking into the woods to look for proof, they are given a simple warning: “It’s not a joke. You shouldn’t go there.” Despite the ominous message and Kelly’s own reservations, they head deep into the forest to set up camp. The events that follow will make them wish they had simply spent the night at the Bigfoot Motel.
