BIGFOOT (2012) Reviews and overview


Bigfoot is an American made-for-television film co-produced by The Asylum/Syfy. The film was directed by Bruce Davison who also stars as a local Sheriff. It features a cameo by rock star Alice Cooper playing himself.


When Bigfoot attacks an ’80s themed rock concert in Deadwood, South Dakota, the cynical event’s organiser Harley Anderson (Danny Bonaduce) tries to kill the giant hairy beast and create a tourist attraction around its stuffed body.

However, his former musical partner Simon Quint (Barry Williams), now an environmentalist, realises the creature is the last of its species, and is determined to make sure it does not become extinct Sheriff Alvarez, played by Sherilyn Fenn, and her partner Henderson (Bruce Davison) try to call off an air strike after they spot Anderson and Quint on Mount Rushmore trying to trap the creature…


“This movie has a LOT going for it and despite the low-budget creature effects it has a cast that delivers on all levels. In a rare departure from the typical SyFy flick, the actors and actresses actually upstaged the creature.” ForgottenFlix

Bigfoot looks atrocious throughout the movie – not a single shot can be considered passable. The usual problems are all here (he changes size from scene to scene, recycled/repetitive FX shots, etc.) but they actually manage to create a new one – a total lack of blood. People are torn in half, heads are eaten, etc, but there’s just a black void where blood should be. It’s kind of disturbing…” Horror Movie a Day


Bigfoot premiered on TV on June 30, 2012, and was released on DVD and Blu-ray on August 14, 2012.
