You would think Bigfoot battling a Chupacabra would be a bit of a mismatch given the incredible size difference between the two. Fred Olen Ray is nonetheless readying a David vs. Goliath clash between these two cryptid titans. Sasquatch vs. Chupacabra - place your bets!
And we go from the bounty of last week's home video releases to the near famine of March 30th, where the pick of the week is without question I Sell the Dead. Although, based on its cover alone, the DVD I'm most curious about is 1951's The Tiger's Claw (Der Tiger Akbar) from West Germany.
One remake we're particularly stoked for around here is Boggy Creek. Why? Because they just don't make enough good Bigfoot movies, and how could anyone resist a good old fashioned dosage of Sasquatchploitation?!?
Bob Gray's Bigfoot was actually one of the very first of the new wave of Sasquatchploitation flicks back when I got an advance look at the film in late 2005. Thanks to a snafu with another distribution company, Bigfoot is only now getting its long overdue DVD release nearly five years later and after a myriad of other killer Sasquatch flicks have come and gone.
Having followed the antics of the many incarnations of the blurry photographed cryptid most commonly known as Bigfoot throughout my life, I have heard of his Missouri counterpart, Momo. I had not heard that the Sasquatchian hominid known as "Momo" was said to have the head of a jack o'lantern. That I would have remembered. But now that I know, I have to wonder why it has taken so long to make a motion picture about pumpkin-headed Bigfoot.
Following up on the story we ran recently with an update on indie flick Boggy Creek, today we got ahold of four early stills from the production that indicate things are looking suitably swampy.
We've been following the progress of two new swamp monster movies in the works, and today we can bring you new news on both. More plot details have emerged on the Boggy Creek non-remake. The first image giving us a good look at swamp thing on the prowl in Brett Piper's Muckman is now available for gawking at. Put on your galoshes; things are about to get swampy.
We've been keeping tabs on the recently announced Legend of Boggy Creek remake. As it turns out, this remake isn't really a remake after all. Boggy Creek will have a similar theme as the original but is not really a remake, will not be done in the docudrama style, and has a monster that owes more to a man-creature of Caddo Indian mythology than the Fouke Monster portrayed in the original.
A few days ago Foy clued us in to the proposed remake of 1972's The Legend of Boggy Creek. At that time no details were available, but today a source close to the production dropped us a line with the names of not only the director but also several key cast members.
And now for your WTF?!?! remake news of the day: The Legend of Boggy Creek. The seminal Sasquatch movie of the Seventies and probably all-time, Charles B. Pierce's 1972 docudrama based of actual events using many of the real people recounting tales of a Bigfoot creature that terrorized Fouke, Arkansas for decades. How the heck do you remake a docudrama? That's like announcing you're going to do a remake of Roger & Me or The Thin Blue Line.
What do you get when you cross Assault on Precinct 13 with a Bigfoot movie? Something that might look a little like Sasquatch Assault.
Indie film connoisseur Avery dropped some new stills from the Sasquatchploitation epic The Shrieking in our mailbox today, and what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than staring at images for an upcoming Bigfoot movie?
Yet another Sasquatchploitation flick is ready to hit home video this spring (I'm sure much to Foy's delight) from Funhouse Pictures. This one was several years in the making, too! It's the epic known as Shawn Hunt's The Shrieking!
