‘Some species are meant to go extinct’
The Wild Man is a 2021 horror film about three young aspiring journalists investigating a string of missing persons in a south Florida town. One man believes they’re connected to The Wild Man, Florida’s notorious Bigfoot. Based on urban legend… is it fact or fiction?

Directed by Ryan Justice from a screenplay co-written by Sean Michael Gloria and Ian Longen.


The Justified Films/Entertainment production stars Lauren Crandall, Julian Green, Mike Reed, David E. McMahon, Michael Paré and Sean Michael Gloria.

The Wild Man premiered at Popcorn Frights Film Festival on August 16, 2021.
Terror Films will release the movie on Digital platforms on Friday, September 30, 2022.

“Crandall is fine in the lead, and Michael Paré (Dawn) does his reliable cameo duty, but most of the cast members aren’t convincing as “real” people. Some don’t appear to be trying; in particular, David E. McMahon (Bonehill Road) as the aforementioned tracker seems to approach the material as an SNL sketch — and not a good one.” Flick Attack

“When it comes to what we see, it does end up being rather chaotic and while it does explain all, it tries to put too much into everything. By the end of the film, you will feel like too much has happened, without finding a solution to anything that did happen […] The Wild Man is an overly chaotic found-footage movie.” Movie Reviews 101

” …a rather effective Bigfoot thriller, one that’s nicely structured and fast enough paced with plenty of action setpieces to keep one at the edge of one’s seat even when the story gets slightly silly, and a solid cast keeps things grounded to make this one cool piece of genre cinema.” Search My Trash


“About the only things The Wild Man: Skunk Ape has going for it is the creature itself and leading actress Lauren Crandall. Her girl next door looks and her performance make Sarah likeable and sympathetic despite a lack of help from the script. Given his non-performance, the fact Paré is only on screen for a few minutes could be considered a plus…” Voices from the Balcony
