‘You can’t run. You can’t hide. Just die.’

The Goocher is a 2020 American horror feature film about a mythical female-shaped being that may be an extraterrestrial. When six strangers are left in the woods to fend for their lives, there’s one enemy they weren’t expecting.

Written and directed by William Lee (Black Mamba; 6 Feet Below Hell; Demons Rising; Soulripperz), the Cinema Lexzikon Productions movie stars Erin Perez, Megan Hall, Shirley Gerber, Carolyn L Seymour and Robert Lamar Burns.


Who or what is The Goocher? The legend began as a Native American folk tale, warning of an evil spirit that never dies. Scientific research points to possible extraterrestrial origins, with unidentifiable energy-filled creatures inhabiting the deep forests of North America.

Most recently, conspiracy theorists state the phenomenon is no myth or alien, but rather a genetically advanced being created by a “dark” government group. Now, in the woods of Ohio, locals have reported sightings of a disfigured woman, angry and menacing, but unapproachable…the telltale sign of The Goocher. What is the horrific truth about this being?


“This movie was just plain bad. Not a bad movie that is so bad that it’s fun to watch. Just a bad movie that drags on, and gets more ridiculous as it goes […] There are more holes in this movie than Bonnie and Clyde’s car. Don’t waste your time or money.” Charles Dark

“This is one film where there’s never, and I do mean never, a dull moment. The Goocher is far too bat-shit crazy to ever be dull… all the way to the films disturbing final moments! […] Most-definitely not a film for everyone, I’ve certainly never seen anything quite like this before…” Nerdly
