Presentation

I was surprised to learn that this was Jared Show’s directorial debut, and he also co wrote the script.  This is a great first movie for him and I look forward to future films.  Editing, lighting, and cinematography are all great quality for an independent debut.  There’s also some choreography for a quick dance at a bar that worked really well and added quite a few laughs.

The score and musical selections were a great match for the mood of the film.  Especially for a chase sequence when a young girl is running from Bigfoot.  I’m not particularly a fan of southern music but no other style would have been appropriate.  When rock music wasn’t playing you heard music similar to what is found in 80s and 90s horror/action films.

The actors are not at all amateur.  The main cast (Dale, Chuck and Burl) do a great job with their characters and the personal struggles that conflict with their hunt for Bigfoot (e.g. relationships, egos and kidney stones). The supporting actors were great picks, and Mayor Carl (John E. Lane, Jr.) was the perfect enemy; had a great menacing voice and presence.  You have a couple of creative characters as well.  I mean, the mayor has two Amish bodyguards, how awesome is that?

Gothic Fit

All Goths who are interested in cryptozoology would find this film entertaining.  I’ve come to realize that Bigfoot and other legendary creatures seem to have their place in the Goth scene.  The dark horror aspects of the film would be loved by the community, and if you’re a Goth from the South then that will also add enjoyment to the comedy and claims that you hear from the rednecks.

Closing Thoughts

Bigfoot: The Movie offers big laughs and blood, so Sasq-WATCH this film!
