‘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?



Bigfoot Hunters plays out exactly how you would expect a proper documentary too, but of course this one is riddled with humour, too much to take anything too seriously. From visual cues to one-liners, there’s plenty of fun to be had but it doesn’t detract too much from the story as you want to see if Brian, Zach and Jeff will get a glimpse of the Sasquatch.” Horror Cult Films

” ….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

Release date:

In the UK, Bigfoot Hunters will be released by Fractured Visions in cinemas on 22 October and on Digital on 25 October 2021.
