Landing on DVD here in the UK this week was former 'Police Academy' graduate Bobcat Goldthwait's new directorial effort 'Willow Creek'. The movie is the latest found footage project which uses the legendary sasquatch as its main focus for fear and will no doubt make you think twice about heading out into the woodlands in search of Mr Bigfoot. A new alternative poster has been revealed which cleverly blends togethers a group of hikers and the hairy one into a large footprint design which you can check out below. 'Willow Creek' hits theatres and On Demand over in the US from 6 June and stars Alexie Gilmore and Bryce Johnson. Fans of extended plot summaries will be pleased with what's on offer below.
"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."
