‘Life finds a way’
Bigfoot Hunters is a 2021 American comedy mockumentary film about a reporter, a producer and a cryptozoologist searching for Sasquatch.
Directed by and starring Zach Lamplugh, a former Adult Swim editor, and Brian Emond, a comedian who appeared in the VICEland documentary Flophouse.
Meet Brian Emond, a millennial clickbait reporter longing to work on serious news stories. Unfortunately for him and his producer Zach, their network has zero faith in them and sends them into the Appalachian Mountains in search of Bigfoot.
Along for the ride is their guide, Jefferey, the only cryptozoologist to have encountered the legendary Sasquatch in recent times. The three set out into the wilderness with one goal: find Bigfoot. What could possibly go wrong?
” ….wants to be a comedy and there certainly are some funny moments. The problem arises when it wants to mix in horror elements which are played just that little bit too seriously for our comedy team to playoff successfully […] it’s a film that ultimately feels unsatisfying simply because some of the laughs should (and could) have landed rather better than they do.” House of Mortal Cinema
In the UK, Bigfoot Hunters will be released by Fractured Visions in cinemas on 22 October and on Digital on 25 October 2021.
