Willow Creek is a 2013 American found-footage horror film about a young couple interested in bigfoot lore, written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. The movie stars Alexie Gilmore and Bryce Johnson.
When amateur filmmaker Jim (Bryce Johnson) decides to make a movie about the infamous sasquatch, his sceptical girlfriend Kelly (Alexie Gilmore) reluctantly goes with him. As they start asking the locals for information and stories of sightings they begin to get the feeling that they are not welcome in Willow Creek…
“It’s a solid little thriller, with a few genuinely spooky moments towards the end. It’s well worth checking out, and marks an interesting departure for Goldthwait, who continues to challenge himself with each film he makes.” Arrow in the Head
“The slow-burn approach to what is essentially a monster movie may not be to everyone’s liking (especially once you consider the filmmaker’s bold choice of including a few excruciatingly long segments of raw, uncut footage), but this is still worth a watch if you can stomach the deliberate pacing.” Bloody Disgusting
“Willow Creek feels like it has been made by a director who has been in the horror genre all his life, it is a flawless exercise in comedy and sheer terror, delivered with passion and ambition, heart and a true sense of knowing what us horror fans enjoy. Willow Creek is fresh, hilarious and downright terrifying in equal measure…” Horror Cult Films
“It’s simply an intriguing story piggybacking off of great campfire lore that’s well-told: it’s rare to praise found footage films for their technical accomplishments, but it features amiable characters who are dropped into an almost otherworldly atmosphere brimming with bizarre sights and sounds.” Oh, the Horror!
