Bigfoot (2012)

After spending some time researching this mysterious cryptid in the field for a few days, I decided to search for it on the big screen. Unfortunately, for me, the activity we discovered in the woods may have been more believable than the trash that I watched. My selection was the 2012 SyFy Channel Original - Bigfoot.
Plot/ 1970's pop culture icons Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams face off in the hunt for the legendary mountain creature.
As a person who has researched this famed creature, it is movies such as this one that truly drive me insane because of the mockery they make. I understand that the SyFy Channel makes some of the cheesiest monster movies out there. Sure, sometimes they are not too bad, but quite often; they could be described as train wrecks on film. For this one, train wreck would be a compliment.  I honestly do not know where to begin. I know that this was supposed to be a cheesefest, but even that fails miserably. The acting is poor, the scripting is bad, the storyline worse, and the cinematography is terrible. To top it off, the effects vary from horrid to miserable, and it may be the worst CGI Bigfoot ever.  If there was a highlight, it was Alice Cooper, who was actually hilarious. In the end, this movie should have been burnt and never seen the light of day. Now that it is video stores, stay away stay far away!

  1. If they got Bonaduce and Williams and actually tried to play it straight, and NOT cheeseball, it may have worked better, and become one of those rare "intentionally uninteantionally funny" movies. Instead, this seems like it tries too hard.

    More SHIT from Syfy.
