Yes, you read that right; co-writer/FX creator Tom (JOSHUA) Devlin just gave Fango the word and some photos from the new indie chiller LEGEND OF THE SANDSQUATCH. “You’ve heard of Bigfoot,” he says. “And you’ve heard about the Yeti. Well, what about their long-lost counterpart who took off to the desert? Ah, yes. He’s not just a Sasquatch. He’s a Sandsquatch.”
Devlin provides the following synopsis of the movie, which he scripted with director Lola Wallace: “When Sue’s grandpa doesn’t come home from his annual hunting trip, she decides to go look for him. On her way to Jagged Sands, she runs into an old friend, Garret, and together they begin the search for her missing granddad. With the discovery of a shredded cabin and Grandpa’s journal, Sue rounds up her gang of ’80s-slasher-film-influenced friends and leads them on a rescue mission—which of course ends in plenty of blood and gore! As the tagline says, ‘Be careful what you look for…it might find you!’ ”
SANDSQUATCH’s cast is headed up by Hilary [GAY BED AND BREAKFAST OF TERROR] Schwartz, Josh Cornell and TERROR FIRMER’s Trent Haaga; “Also, watch out for an appearance by Lloyd Kaufman,” Devlin adds. “The movie was shot and is currently being edited by Jason [RISE OF THE UNDEAD] Horton. There is currently no website, but you can check out updates on MySpace. We will also be attending the FANGORIA Weekend of Horrors in Burbank, so come by and see us!”
