It would be easy to dismiss Night Claws as just another low budget Bigfoot movie, but if you’re a lover of b-movies, then the pedigree behind this latest piece of Sasquatchploitation makes it a must-see.
I first reported on this movie back in April of 2011 and feel compelled to repeat a paragraph I wrote back then explaining why the film is a b-movie lover’s wet dream:
What if Yor, the Hunter from the Future (Reb Brown), Sharon Stone’s lesbian lover from Basic Instinct (Leilani Sarelle), the star of a host of 80s/90s made-for-video action b-movies (Ted Prior), the King of the Kickboxer’s girlfriend (Sherrie Rose), and Sylvester Stallone’s brother (Frank Stallone) got together to star in a new Sasquatchploitation flick called Night Claws from the director of such horror movies as Killer Workout and Mardi Gras for the Devil (David A. Prior)?
Throw in traditional special effects (i.e., NO CGI!) from Bruce Larsen, and Bill “Splat” Johnson and you have a recipe for old school Bigfoot mayhem.
A bloodthirsty Bigfoot, which kills without warning, is on a rampage near a small town. This is not your ordinary Bigfoot — This creature is lightning fast, incredibly strong and seems to thrive on not just killing but tearing people apart as well. A strong, beautiful, and sometimes mysterious woman shows up claiming to represent the Federal Government and pushes the local Sheriff into hunting down this creature, but they are not alone in their hunt. As multiple groups of hunters all seek out the famed prize the lines become seriously blurred between the hunter and the hunted.
Midnight Releasing brings Night Claws to DVD on December 11th. Sorry, no Blu-ray for Bigfoot. We should all know by now that Bigfoot prefers blurry video, not the sort of pristine picture quality we’ve come to expect from Blu-ray.
Disc extras will include a behind the scenes video and a music video.
Here’s a trailer for Night Claws that should leave you feeling squatchy.
