"Recommended." --American Reference Books Annual

"A must-read...highly recommended. It does exactly what is sets out to do...provides a unique reference guide to all such filmic appearances...and does it well. I can't imagine that Coleman's reference guide will ever be surpassed by another author." --Hellnotes

This book is quite large-both in size AND in content.
H.M. 2005
Some of the posts were in-depth posts about movies featuring Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yetis and I was amazed at how interesting they were.
SubtropicBob
This weighty tome is written in a clear, easy to read, manner which both informs & entertains.

Format: Paperback
"The Bigfoot Filmography" by David Coleman is a fantastic Sasquatch-sized guide that covers the film and TV history of the famous cryptid critter. Exhaustively researched and enhanced with tons of photos, this book is a must-have for Bigfoot aficionados. Well-known classic movies, such as "The Legend of Boggy Creek," and more modern takes on the genre, such as "The Wild Man of the Navidad," are profiled, but so too are obscure entries from around the world. No matter how big of a Sasquatch TV and movie buff you are, you'll learn about Bigfoot and Yeti projects you never knew existed, and some that have even become lost to the mists of time, film vaults, and deteriorating celluloid. There's also plenty of fascinating commentary on the certain motifs that define the genre of Cine du Sasquatch again and again. Kids who grew up during the golden age of Bigfoot movies - the 1970s - will particularly enjoy the comprehensive info presented on classics of that era such as "The Mysterious Monsters," "The Six Million Dollar Man," and "Sasquatch, The Legend of Bigfoot." It's a fascinating read on a genre with a cult following that seems to grow larger every year. Highly recommended, and a worthy addition to anyone's film and crypto libraries.

Sean Whitley. Director, "Southern Fried Bigfoot"

Format: Paperback
The difficulty in reviewing a book like The Bigfoot Filmography by David Coleman (McFarland & Company, 2012) is the sheer scope of the project, as evidenced by the first section, which opens with Georges Méliès and ends with Wookies. The book's minor shortcomings are a result of the size of the project, not the outstanding scholarship.

The back cover claims it is "every known film or television appearance" of the elusive hominid. Such a claim was bound to be considered a challenge by the OCD crowd. And indeed Coleman missed a handful of entries. Overlooking short comedy films like Yeti Vengeance (2004) and microbudget flicks like Eyes In The Dark (2007) is understandable, but if you're going to include commercials from regional television, it's harder to accept the omission of indie films like Sasqua (1975) or Assault of the Sasquatch (2009) or the "Subject: Sunrise at Sunset Streams" episode of the television series FreakyLinks with Betsy Palmer being stalked by a yeti at a retirement village.

OCD issues aside, the only real complaint I consider legitimate is cross referencing in the index, or lack thereof. Too many of the included films were released under one title, re-titled for VHS sales and re-re-titled for DVD. It would make the index longer, but easier to use. In several cases, I had to go to IMDB to find a variant title for a film I couldn't find but knew had to be included.

Now for the good stuff, which greatly outweighs these minor distractions - It is a great book, covering big budget releases and TV appearance as well as ridiculously obscure films and movies so bad I wouldn't even admit I saw them, let alone publish such an admission!

Just how serious can one be about Bigfoot? It turns out, you can love, enjoy and understand a great deal about the mythic cryptid without ever having to leave your living room by diving into this wonderful book! Bigfoot, Sasquatch or the Abominable Snowman has been a background noise in our lives, a constant presence in the wandering minds of filmmakers, a funhouse mirror of how we see our lost nature. Have we civilized our wild, destructive instincts? Meet one school of cinematic Bigfoots! Have we lost our trust and innocence? Bigfoot can show us the way back! And then there are the hoaxes, purported documentary footage that inspire some sense of wonder that the fauna of the world has not yet been catalogued, that a wild, missing link might still be left! Author David Colemen leaves no log unturned as wanders from the forests of the pacific northwest to the sound stages of film studios made to look like the slopes of the Himalayas. They are all here--every Bigfoot sighting on the silver screen. Coleman weaves a tale far more interesting than any breathless hunters claiming to have "treed a bitch Sasquatch." He takes us down a road of popular culture that is filled with in-depth information and fascinating observations. You don't have to give a hoot about Bigfoot on film to enjoy this book. Unlike virtually ever Bigfoot story you will ever hear or read, Coleman has pulled off a neat trick--in this book, everything you will read is true!

I'll keep it short as other reviewers have pretty much covered everything, and I don't have much to add to what's already been said. This is an AMAZING book. The bible of bigfoot films! As a life-long bigfoot enthusiast this is a dream come true for me, and I loved it, cover to cover. There are some omissions, but with a book of this scope I suppose that was bound to happen. The only negative is that its sort of an expensive book, but well worth the price for those interested in the subject matter.

Format: Paperback
I accidentally stumbled onto this book when a friend alerted me to author Dave Coleman's Facebook page. I discovered that he wrote fascinating posts about the backstories on films from various movie genres I like, such as science fiction and Grindhouse. Some of the posts were in-depth posts about movies featuring Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yetis and I was amazed at how interesting they were. They provided information and insights about cinematic history and the realm of cryptozoology (legendary creatures) that I was unaware of - and found really intriguing. So, even though I have never been a hard-core Bigfoot buff, I decided to buy his book to see what it was like. I'm very glad I did. It's a truly impressive feat of scholarship, both in terms of the movie lore and "cryptid hominid" lore. The introductory chapters provide great perspective on the evolution of our cultural images of Bigfoot and related creatures and the movies that helped shape those images. The rest provides insightful reviews of virtually every movie or TV episode ever made that involves Bigfoot, Sasquatch or the Snowman. THE BIGFOOT FILMOGRAPHY is a big, unique, fascinating book that's clearly a must-have for Bigfoot buffs. And if, like me, you didn't start out as an avid fan of cryptozoology and Bigfoot films, you may be once you read this book. I highly recommend it.
