11 Bigfoot Movies To Get Squatchy With

In honor of the return of Finding Bigfoot to the airwaves, I figured I’d list 11 (that’s right, mine goes to eleven!) Bigfoot movies for all you squatch lovers. I honestly feel that little show on Animal Planet is responsible for the rash of recent and upcoming Bigfoot movies – and in my book, that’s a good thing.

Even better news for all you movie producers, the definitive Bigfoot movie has yet to be made. Find a writer, quality director and Adam Sandler cash and get to work.

So, here’s the list. Thanks to Amazon, I’ve dropped in a quick synopsis for each followed by a 1 line personal review, because I can’t say no to Bigfoot movies, as well as my Squatch Rating of 1 to 5 Squatch Toes. There are dozens of sasquatch movies out there, the bulk being made in the 70’s and within the last few years. This should be a good place to start your squatch-ucation.

THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK

Image

A 1970s documentary-style drama questions the existence of a hairy 7ft tall Sasquatch-type monster that lives in a swap outside of Fouke, Arkansas. According to the locals the monster walks on two feet, has a characteristic smelly odor and kills chickens.

Hunter : It put the low in low budget but is still a classic despite the terrible music. 2 1/2 Squatch Toes. 

CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE

Image

Some fishermen are attacked in the Louisiana swamps. When the word gets out of a mysterious Bigfoot-type creature, two researchers come to a small town to study and hopefully discover what the beast is. Their research from some farmers help the two men to learn that the creature may be a very angry and murderous missing link.

Hunter : Some actual, real life actors in here and though cheesy, has a couple of creepy moments. 3 Squatch Toes.

SASQUATCH

Image

Scientists mount an expedition to find a Bigfoot-type creature. (Wow, could they spare the words???)

Hunter : Saw this as a kid in the theater and it scared the hell out of me, though I have a feeling I’d be less than impressed now. 2 Squatch Toes. 

NOT YOUR TYPICAL BIGFOOT MOVIE

Image

Dallas Gilbert and Wayne Burton, best friends from a dying former steel town in Ohio, are out to convince the world that Bigfoot exists.

Hunter : A wonderful documentary that’s more about two old and broke friends searching for Bigfoot than the hair fella. 4 Squatch Toes.

BIGFOOT COUNTY

Image

Based on found footage. A documentary filmmaker and his crew venture up to Siskiyou County to investigate the alleged Bigfoot sightings.

Hunter : Three ass-tards get what they deserve in this dreadful found footage flick. 1 Squatch Toe.

SNOW BEAST

Image

Jim (John Schneider) and his research team study the Canadian Lynx every year. This year, he has to take his rebelling 16 year-old daughter, Emmy (Danielle Chuchran), with him. But the lynx are missing. As Jim and his team–with the help of a local ranger (Jason London)–try to find out why, something stalks them–a predator no prey can escape.

Hunter : Perfect to fall asleep to on a Saturday afternoon after mowing the lawn. 2 Squatch Toes. 

BIGFOOT : LOST COAST TAPES

Image

After a Bigfoot Hunter claims to possess the body of a dead Sasquatch, a disgraced journalist stakes his comback and the lives of his documentary crew on proving the finding to be a hoax.

Hunter : Oddly strange yet effective found footage movie with the most bizarre ending any squatcher could conceive. 4 Squatch Toes.

SHRIEK OF THE MUTILATED

Image

What is the grisly, hides secret of the murdering white yeti? A group of college students finds out when they venture to a mysterious island. Low budget and REALLY awful in places, but at times chillingly effective. A Shostokovich type score much like that used in THE BRAIN EATERS.

Hunter : Considered by some to be an underground classic, but they’re all high. 2 Squatch Toes.

THE BIGFOOT HUNTER : STILL SEARCHING

Image

In the summer of 2006, two Sasquatch hunters led a group of curious, young paranormal investigators into the hills of southern New York on a quest for evidence of the legendary beast known as Bigfoot.

Hunter : This documentary surprised the hell out of me and is a a must watch for squatchers. 3 1/2 Squatch Toes.

THE LEGEND OF BIGFOOT

Image

Wildlife chronicler Ivan Marx became one of the world’s most notorious Bigfoot researchers. This film documents his journey, with plenty of raw footage and unique insight. Marx’s quest takes the viewer throughout the wilds of Northern US and Canada, where we follow the trail of ravaged farm animals and stunned eyewitnesses that Bigfoot is leaving in his wake. Not to mention some of the most famous footage ever shot of the elusive creature!

Hunter : A horribly shot nature flick that will bore you to no end. 1 Squatch Toe.

BIGFOOT LIVES

Image

Everything you know about Bigfoot is about to change. Follow the travels of the world renowned Bigfoot hunter, Tom Biscardi, and his Searching for Bigfoot team. You will follow the team as they search the country from Montana to New York in search of the world’s most elusive and mysterious beast. Tom Biscardi has been in search of Bigfoot for close to 34 years and you will see what he has discovered!

Hunter : Find out why Tom Biscardi has been totally discredited by the Bigfoot community. No Squatch Toes.

    Lol….this post was a riot! Makes me want to get the one that is good for nappping with…..

  2. fuonlyknew says :

    They’re all high! LOL
    I agree with all of your ratings. The Lost Coast Tapes did have a unique ending. I was going to give up on it but glad I stuck with it. I think what I liked about Snowbeast enough to finish it was the snow!
    Have you seen the Snowbeast movie from 1967, the one with Clint Walker. At least that’s who I’m thinking was in it. It was actually a pretty good one.
    Some of my fav’s are. Sasquatch with Lance Henrickesen and Sasquatch Mountain. I also watched one recently but can’t find it agaain. About a Sasquatch that attacks a police station. Was actually pretty creative and funny.
    Also liked the 2006 film Abominable about the guy in the wheelchair. Not too shabby. Guess you can tell I like campy B-movies!

    Hunter,

    Love the list! I’ve seen most of these and pretty much agree with your ass… zzzzzzzzz… ments, sorry took a nap there. 🙂

    I’ve not read “Swamp Monster Massacre” and I’m sure it is a great read. However, the one book I’ve read on Bigfoot that was movie worthy is Jay C. Kumar’s “Dark Woods”. http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Woods-Jay-C-Kumar/dp/0425197077
