Bigfoot has come to the town of Ellwood City, PA and is causing BIG problems. Now it’s up to four town locals, who no one believes have found a Bigfoot, to take him down and save the day.
Big Foot: The Movie is a goofy film, but I did manage to have fun with it regardless. We join up with a trio of backwoods hicks on a random night of drinking and being overall annoying. Soon, one of them gets torn to shreds by a Bigfoot and this leads to a whole deal of them recruiting one of their now dead friend’s old buddies to hunt down the Bigfoot. All the whole the local mayor knows of this and tries to cover it up. If you are from the south some of what you see here will probably hit close to home in a funny way. If you aren’t then I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of it more or less anyway. The movie doesn’t come with an overall bloodbath but we do have a bit of a body count. We also have some T and A even if we don’t get full on nudity. The movie is more comedic than anything else but it works and in a world of subpar Bigfoot films it kind of stands out in a good way.
The movie has a smarter undertone to it that some might miss and it also comes with a Rambo 2 reference and far be it for me to talk about anything packing a Rambo 2 reference. The movie takes place in the woods of Pennsylvania, which is odd in some ways because I didn’t know they had these types in PA, but then again I’ve never been there. Maybe if you are reading this and you are a redneck from Pennsylvania you can clarify that info with me at some point? Anyway, Bigfoot: The Movie is a fun movie with some horror elements but a whole lot of comedy. If you like Bigfoot, you’ll finally have a decent Bigfoot film of recent memory to watch. If you aren’t for the goofy side of stuff, then you might find this one going over your head a bit.
