Reviews [may contain spoilers]:

” …Bigfoot Country is a kind of comedy of errs that is worth more for its chortles than for its thrills. Flawed from the start and barely trying to overcome its own limitations, Bigfoot Country is a film that asks you to demand very little of your next movie night.” Cryptic Rock

“Nothing new here. Sadly, the film struggles to find its footing as well and we watch characters that you want to try to escape the bigfoot you only get a small glimpse of. It is clear the team was just trying to throw together a quick film to sell over quality.” Horror Society

“The deaths in this movie almost make it worth watching, as they come unexpectedly and with surprising intensity. The movie does miss a real opportunity with its ending though […] leaving the viewer with another tease of a monster as opposed to tackling the very human evil that marks the film’s final few minutes.” Bryan Davis Keith
