Editorial Reviews

One summer morning, at the end of a dirt road in the thick western forests, a team prepares for a three day hike into the deep woods where no one has ventured before.  The team consists of two paleontology professors, Dr. Ethan Edwards ' it's some kind of graveyard!  The scientists are beside themselves with joy'they neverexpected to be so lucky. But their luck turns bad, as one of the Rangers disappears and another is attacked by an unknown creature while searching for him.  Since the safety of the civilians is theirnumber one priority, the Rangers order the team to head home.  But as they hastily make their way back to the main road, they come to realize that they are being hunted by the creature, an eight foottall gorilla-like animal that walks upright.  One by one the team members are plucked away and viciously killed. Who will survive the night?

Customer Reviews

Very poor visual effects.

A group of scientists, forest rangers, and a blonde bombshell hanger-on march into the north woods to investigate the source of some big bones a museum uncovered.
Ross E. Nelson
This is not a scary movie, even though it tries to make itself such.

This is about some archaeologists who, guided by some forest rangers, hike back into the mountains to investigate some odd bones that they have in their museum. The bones were brought in by some trappers who lived in the area many years ago. Overall, these folks are a very likable bunch. Some of the acting is a tad cheesy, and one guy is prone to speaking in a monotone, but I'm so used to watching low budget movies where I couldn't care less if everyone gets killed (half the time I'm cheering for them to die in some horrible way), that I was impressed that I actually cared about these folks and didn't want to see them get killed.

Once in the mountains, they discover some burial mounds and dig up the bones of, yup, you guessed it, Sasquatch! Well, turns out the Sasquatch don't like people messing with their graveyard, and a night of terror ensues. I really liked this part of the movie, all the cheesiness is gone and it gets very serious. It's done quite well, with nice night photography in the forest, good theme music, good dialogue, and good performances from the actors. I remember when I was in the Cub Scouts and the counselors told a scary story around the campfire, then somebody jumped out of the trees and we all scattered. Being little kids, we fell for it hook line and sinker. This part of the movie brought back memories of that. Yes, the CGI Sasquatch do look pretty bad in certain scenes, but overall I'd say they look good. It allows them to be very large and move quickly, a nice change from the usual guy in a suit that, because of the bulky suit, looks hilarious trying to keep up with his intended victims.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this to lovers of low budget movies. You even get a busty babe taking a shower in a bikini.

This is the kind of trash that causes people to laugh at the Bigfoot/Sasquatch buffs and researchers and why no one will ever take the subject serious. As if the Jonas Quastel direceted/Lance Henrickson starring "Sasquatch" put out by Columbia Tri-star a couple of years ago wasn't bad enough, they(CTS)had to go and release another awful Sasquatch film. I know that there has been some ridiculously awful B movies made about the genre in the past, but, you would think in this day and age of technology and money that somebody could finally make a good realistic Bigfoot flick. But, this film is why no big name studio or director will take the chance. The plot is okay, I guess, I can buy the fact that a group of park rangers is hired to guide a couple of scientists into the deep woods looking for bones of an unknown species that had also been found by a couple of trappers many, many years ago, we learn this in the first few minutes of the film, but after that it goes WAY down hill. The acting is awful, I guess that is why it is called a "B-Movie" and you get what you pay for. They even had to throw in a steriotypical staple of all B-Movies, the big breasted blonde, who must take a bag shower every morning in a skimpy bikini showing all of her assets to the male park rangers. Then probably the worst thing of all in this film is the CGI created Sasquatches. The animation is terrible and at times the Sasquatches look more like cartoon characters than an unknown hairy bi-pedal primate. And then in the end, fleeing from a colony of actors dressed up in gorilla suites, our heroes end up finding shelter in an old cabin that was originally inhabited by the trappers we learned about in the beginning of the film. Oh, the irony.Read more ›

As a devoted lover of B-movies, I have seen more than my share of Bigfoot films, and despite being another low-budget Yeti flick, "Sasquatch Hunters" is not without its unique charms. It is far from the worst Bigfoot movie I have ever seen, and managed to keep my interest for 88 minutes.

The film opens with three buffoons hunting something in the woods with pistols, when they run afoul of Sasquatch, who is none too happy to see them. Bigfoot makes short work of them, and even had the good graces to kill the most annoying character first. After the title sequence we meet up with a group of students and professors who want to go into the woods to look for bones, and the group of forest rangers there to keep them safe, headed by former ranger and obvious hero Matt Lattimore. The cast includes brother and sister forest rangers (Spencer and Janet) who both have difficulties keeping their hormones under control to no avail. For a monster-in-the-woods movie there is amazing restraint on the romantic subplot front.

As the cast walks through the woods the tasteful score swells in the background to the point it's distracting. The music is actually well done (especially for a film on this kind of budget) but is overly loud and intrusive at times, and even more annoyingly frequently crescendos when absolutely nothing significant is happening; it seems to get better after the first half hour or so, but maybe I just adapted to it. For a film of this nature the script isn't bad, although there are some ridiculous lines ("Maybe it's one of those man-bear things!"), which is probably unavoidable given the subject matter.
