Now that holidays are over, it’s time to start thinking about what we might get for some of our Dread Central staffers for Christmas 2012, and thanks to the McFarland publishing company, we have already crossed Foy off our list. Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on David Coleman’s The Bigfoot Filmography: Fictional and Documentary Appearances in Film and Television.
The “Sasquatch” film genre, devoted to the legendary and notoriously elusive creature also known as Bigfoot and its Himalayan counterpart, the Yeti, is the focus of this illustrated reference guide. Here is a fascinatingly detailed look at the cinematic history of Sasquatch from the earliest trick films of Georges Melies to the most up-to-date CGI efforts. Critical insights regarding the genre’s development are offered, along with an exhaustively researched filmography that includes every known film or television appearance of Sasquatch, Bigfoot, and Yeti in both fictitious and documentary formats.
Included are in-depth interviews with such filmmakers as Kevin Tenney, Adam Muto, Ryan Schifrin, Tim Skousen, and Michael Worten as well as reproductions of rare movie stills, posters, lobby cards, and behind-the-scenes production photos. Renowned cryptozoologist Loren Coleman provides an insightful foreword to the text.
Sounds pretty cool, right? We say it’s about damn time the Yeti got his due!
