The plot of the film concerns an attractive young woman who, due to an unfortunate car accident, is abducted by a gang of bank robbers and forced to flee with them into the Arizona wilderness. The group is pursued by several law enforcement officers; all must join forces when they learn they are the prey of the sasquatch. Naturally people get picked off one by one, but the gore is not excessive. The portrayal of the sasquatch at the end even manages to be sympathetic.
OK, it's not "Citizen Kane." But when it comes to bigfoot movies, you could do worse. Believe me.
PLOT: Bank robbers take a hostage and run into woods. Law offices pursue. Eventually, they all team together in order to try to survive - as a sasquatch starts killing them one by one!
REVIEW: I rented this movie expecting a low caliber sci-fi channel movie. While it wasn't a block buster or academy award winner by any means; I think it was the best sasquatch/Bigfoot movie I have ever seen. There is much more plot development; and while there is blood and gore; it wasn't a slasher, mindless blood fest movie.
One of the main characters was ridiculed by the town for 12 years because he claimed his wife saw (and filmed) a sasquatch the night that she was tragically killed in a hit and run accident. It put the small town on some tourists maps and had tv specials on it; but no one really believed him.
The police deputies are rather stereotypical dumb, small town cops. It was a bit annoying but if you didn't harp on that and relaxed, it didn't detract from the movie much. The sheriff is a friend of the afore mentioned main character and he copes with some guilt on not believing his friend and helping him when the town thought him crazy.
The bank robbers are even developed a little; without making the entire movie about them. It wasn't so fascinating that they become extremely memorable (I can only recall about one or two character's names) but it added a little more depth and plot to the movie.
Even the sasquatch has a mate and newborn baby (you don't get to see Baby Bigfoot thought, aw). This sasquatch movie had a lot more plot than others I have seen. Like I said before, its not fantastic, but I am glad I watched it. One of the best Bigfoot movies around. Four stars; for turning a monster movie into something good!
The "King" Lance Henriksen is back in another sasquatch role and judging it by that standard, it is the best lance Henriksen Sasquatch film so far! Nice to see him being human rather than a robot. The guy is a good actor. So are Craig Wasson, Michael Worth and a few others in the cast. A nice looking film directed by Steven R. Monroe (Left In Darkness). I have seen it ripped on a lot online, but I have to say, much of the critisism was that Cerina Vincent wasn't naked or that Bigfoot wasn't killing enough people. Shows the criteria that is important to some. But, that is actually what I liked about it (not that nudity would have killed it....). I went in expecting something cliche and it surprised me there. Better written and acted than most in this genre.
It seems there is a featurette on the DVD but unfortunately, no commentary has been listed which would have made it an instant buy. Either way, a decent low budget flick on the Squatch.
Writer: Michael Worth
Runtime: 90 minutes
Locations: Williams, Flagstaff and Coconino Nat. Forest, Arizona
Year of TV Release: 2006
THE PLOT: After an unfortunate auto accident, Cerina Vincent is taken captive by a gang of bank robbers who are forced to flee into the Arizona timber by foot. They are followed closely by a posse made up of policemen and old Vietnam vets. The two groups ultimately team-up (sort of) when they encounter a Bigfoot creature who is picking 'em off one by one.
Although I highly doubt the creature exists, I'm fascinated by the Bigfoot legend and enjoy films on the subject. "Sasquatch Mountain" is one of the best, if not the best. It was originally titled "Devil on the Mountain" and, in fact, that's the title that appears on the dvd.
To be expected, some people smugly laugh at the picture, calling it unintentionally funny and cheesy, but nothing could be further from the truth. This is actually a character study using the Bigfoot legend as a stage. The story and characters are taken seriously and there's no goofiness to be found. The reason some automatically laugh at it is because the idea of Sasquatch has become a big joke, which is understandable.
I should point out that if you're expecting a mindless slasher flick with Bigfoot in the evil Jason role you'll be disappointed. The film "Abominable" (2006) is a film along these lines. It's a good film for what it is and there's nothing wrong with this approach, it's just that "Sasquatch Mountain" shoots for something deeper.
The screenplay was written, believe it or not, by Michael Worth who stars in the picture as one of the bank robbers, Vin.Read more ›

Incredibly well done for such a pitiful budget. The cinematography and script are shaky sometimes but there's an underlying story there that makes the whole thing work.Published 15 months ago by Leon P.
