In our national forests there are currently over 400 cases of missing persons. The National Forests Service claims to keep no database on these disappearances. Coming this month from Dark Sky Films and Director Bobcat Goldthwait is the Bigfoot found footage Horror movie WILLOW CREEK. The film is described as The Blair Squatch Project that is driven by exploring the idea of bearing witness. The brand new official trailer has just hit the scene and we have it waiting for you all down below.
WILLOW CREEK stars Bryce Johnson and Alexie Gilmore.
Jim and his girlfriend, Kelly, are in Willow Creek, California, to retrace the steps of Bigfoot researchers Patterson and Gimlin, who in 1967 recorded the most famous film of the legendary monster. Kelly is a skeptic, along for the ride to spend time with her boyfriend between acting gigs. Jim, a believer, hopes to capture footage of his own, so his camera is constantly rolling.
The small town is a mecca to the Bigfoot community: Sasquatch statues guard the local businesses, murals of the missing link line the roads, and Bigfoot burgers are the town delicacy. The couple interview locals who range from skeptic to believer and from manic to completely menacing. Some of the stories they hear are of chance encounters with a gentle creature, while others are tales of mysterious eviscerations.
On the day that Jim and Kelly plan on hiking into the woods to look for proof, they are given a simple warning: “It’s not a joke. You shouldn’t go there.” Despite the ominous message and Kelly’s own reservations, they head deep into the forest to set up camp. The events that follow will make them wish they had simply spent the night at the Bigfoot Motel.
WILLOW CREEK will be in limited theaters as well as available on VOD June 6th.
