Product Description

From The Producer Of The Original TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE

Based on the terrifying true story from the journals of Dale S. Rogers

In 1975, the small town of Sublime, Texas had an encounter with a creature so horrifying that it remains legend today: Deep in the woods along the Navidad River, someone or something has left its lair to rip a trail of ferocious carnage through the local population. Is it man, monster or Lone Star myth? And in a rural community commanded by the Bible, corrupted by moonshine and ruled by rifles, can anything stop the vengeance of a beast unleashed? Pass the popcorn and hook that speaker to the driver s side window, raves Film Threat. THE WILD MAN OF THE NAVIDAD has a lot of heart and captures the essence of 60s and 70s grindhouse/drive-in horror!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love southern horror! February 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
'The Wild Man of the Navidad' definitely has that 70's camp feel to it! When watching it, I could clearly see that it pays homage to such films as: 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', 'The Legend of Boggy Creek', 'Creature From Black Lake' etc. Even though it does pay homage to those films, it doesn't over do it in such a way that it would be ripping off its predecessors. It is truly original and I can easily see this becoming a cult classic over time. It just has to! Besides this being a low low budget flick, I could tell the makers behind it wanted their legendary wild man to say as campy as if it were depicted in 70's cinema. And by that I mean this isn't the scariest beastly-looking man that is seen by todays Horror movie standards (today being the keyword). Don't get me wrong, this wild man does play out a creepy vibe! I love how the wild man is portrayed. It's realistic. It's believable. Some viewers will not get it. I'm going to go out on a limb and say younger audiences these days will be the ones that wont get it when getting their first glimpse at the beast. Having grown up just outside of Shreveport, Louisiana for the past twenty something years, I might be a little biased on this "review". To be honest, once I find out there is a Horror flick that puts on some kind of southern act, I go in with almost a negative attitude right from the start. Well, I'm glad to be wrong! This flick has nothing but locals in it! So in that case, I can't argue about actors overplaying the redneck role. haha.

What does make this "true events" story different from the other flicks I've mentioned, is that there is some splatter involved, but nothing too over-the-top. If those of you can understand its campy approach and not look at it as just being silly, than you will enjoy it for what it's meant to be. The images captured in 'The Wild Man of the Navidad' are beautiful!

5.0 out of 5 stars wild MAN of the navidad August 2, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had been eagerly waiting to see this film ever since I learned of it. Paying a homage to one of my faves "The Legend of Boggy Creek", it plays as a vintage 70's low budget horror flick. The filmmakers even contacted the late Charles Pierce (who had done Boggy Creek) for his which Chuck replied if he wasn't running the show, he wanted no part.

(Below riddled with spoilers)

Based on true events, this is the story of a man recently laid off from his job, and (in desperate need of money) decides to open up his land to the local hunters so they may hunt for game on his property, even though he knows his land is inhabited by a savage wild man. Though he has been trying to appease the wild man for some time with offerings, a hunter shoots and injures the wild man, and then all hell breaks loose.

I have read many reviews on this film, and have heard the good and bad things people have said. But I wanted to address the bad:
Yes I agree, I wanted a bigfoot movie out of this too. This is a little different creature feature. I was confused at first about the creature's appearance with it wearing animal skins. This was unlike any bigfoot story I had heard. But then I looked it up online. Some reports say that the original wild man of the navidad was indeed a man, an escaped slave in the 1800's who was a prince of his tribe back in Africa. After escaping, he donned animal pelts and lived off the land for 14 years. Farmers would find their tools missing one day, only to find them returned and sharpened the next day. And he never hurt anyone. He was eventually captured and re-enslaved. Then after the Civil War, he was released. So even though the creature seemed strange to me, to see him running around in animal pelts, I get that side of the story....

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny September 28, 2009
Made on no budget, this was a decent first feature. The genre gets a reboot; this is very grindhouse, go-go 70s-style, so you'd need to be a fan of those to enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terror In Texas... September 23, 2010
THE WILD MAN OF THE NAVIDAD cost nearly nothing to make, so how could it be so good? Because, it makes the best of its ultra-limited resources! Even though the creature is barely glimpsed, the local hicks are perverse drunks w/ guns, and the "hero" is a cowardly doofus; somehow, this combination works! I generally hate bigfoot, yeti, sasquatch films, so this one surprised me. Don't expect a zillion-dollar, hollywood spectacular, and you just might enjoy this one...

This film is moody, atmospheric and very well-done. Acting isn't bad and the filmmakers rely on building suspense in lieu of effects they can't afford. This is one heck of an entertaining film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Freddy Krueger on meds August 16, 2013
I realize that this is supposed to be a deliberate turkey, but "The Wild Man of the Navidad" is actually worse than some of the Bigfoot-related low budget films from the 1970's it's supposedly inspired by. Any relation to "The Legend of Boggy Creek" is purely incidental.

The "hillbillies" are primitive, perverted and bizarre, rather than normal or quaintly charming. The monster is purely evil, rather than misunderstood. The first part of "The Wild Man" comes across as a David Lynch production, but unfortunately without David Lynch. The second part is a slasher movie. This might be fun to watch if you like really bad horror films (or slash) but they lost this reviewer when the "Bigfoot" creature turned out to be a turkey version of Freddy Krueger.

The end credits contain the following message: "This film contains graphic documentations of wild game hunting and evisceration. These scenes were shot with working, licensed trappers and were in no way staged or repeated specifically for this production". Sure hope you're right, buddy, because otherwise I'm afraid I have to call the proper authorities. Or slash you.

One star.
