Director, producer, and comedian Bobcat Goldthwait’s new movie centers around, and is named after, the bigfoot capital of the world, Willow Creek.  The fictional movie is a “found footage” genre piece about a couple on a road trip trying to locate the famed Patterson/Gimlin Film site.

Besides being filmed at recognizable locations around the town of Willow Creek, Bobcat and his production team ventured deep into the woods up Bluff Creek and shot much of the film on location in the vicinity of Louse Camp and the PG Filmsite.  Also of note are a few cameo appearances by various real life bigfooters including Steve Streufert and Tom Yamarone.

A few weeks ago I was invited to a screening of Willow Creek in Arcata, CA, and I was very impressed with the film.  In my opinion, it is by far the best bigfoot movie yet produced.  There are some very funny parts, and also eerily creepy scenes to balance everything out.  The climax of the movie is a very long, uncut scene that accurately depicts the mood and feel of being in the vulnerable position one puts themselves in while camping (and bigfooting) alone in remote wilderness areas.  Downright creepy, if you ask me.

Here is the trailer that has recently been made available.  Be a bit careful, as there are some F-Bombs and a bit of non-graphic nudity in the trailer.  That’s not characteristic of the film, but there are some PG-13 aspects to the following.  Enjoy!
