This new production reveals compelling evidence from the labs of Prof. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University. Meldrum documents hair samples, fingerprint evidence, behavior studies, and even historical data supporting the creature's existence. Plus, Meldrum explains why many parts of the interior Rockies are possible bigfoot habitat.
The film also includes surprising comments from nationally-recognized author and skeptic Michael Shermer. Even though Shermer makes a living discounting myths, he tells the filmmakers that bigfoot's existence is actually a possibility.
The filmmakers travelled to the exact locations of several key sightings--with the actual eyewitnesses--to recount their stories. In addition to chronicling the accounts, the documentary team systematically evaluated and deconstructed the sightings. The team also mounted a major scientific expedition deep into the Idaho wilderness--to purported bigfoot hotspot--gaining surprising new insights into the bigfoot phenomenon.

Half this so-called documentary is spent "investigating" one eyewitness' sighting. The video crew (apparently students from Idaho State U) decide they're equipped to make a scientific, biological investigation and it comes off like a cheap version of The Real World. Laughable. Don't waste your time or your money.
Makes an attempt at being a serious documentary for 24 minutes, then it turns into an episode of MTV's Real World goes camping in Idaho to look for Bigfoot.
The minutae of camping in a State Forrest(20 feet from a concrete bench) are yours to enjoy for the next 30 minutes until we are finally allowed to resume our lives.
On the plus side, you get classic lines like "While Russ initiates the process of building a fire" and "I can't feel my feet". And my personal favorite(who thought you'd ever hear this in a Bigfoot documentary?) "I couldn't find my pants".
Almost MST3K worthy.
It was cool to see inside his lab and watch the filmmakers try to stump him with a fake cast.
And the eyewitness reports were cool too. The made a believer out of me.
Anbd while most films on this topic focus on the same old 3 or 4 sightings, this piece uncovers two encounters that are not as widely known--but very intriguing nonetheless.
The first half of the film lays out the case for bigfoot in general and then tracks down two of these encounters with the actual eyewitnesses. In both cases, the eyewitnesses return to the scene of the sightings for the first time since they saw the creature. It's pretty interesting.
Then the filmmakers spend the night at the remote location where one of the sightings took place.
I rather enjoyed it. It's true to it's title "Rocky Mountain Bigfoot."
Simply put: This DVD sucks!
Although the first half did have two interesting eyewitness accounts, the techniques used to present the material were horrible. I concur with others here who mentioned how this DVD was boring, presented nothing new and that awful "expedition" into the mountains with a group of unprofessional college kids who actually mistook the sounds of flying geese for a "family of monkeys running over the hills."
Oh yeah, and let's not forget the geniuses who emptied a canister of Quaker Oatmeal on a snow-covered log in hopes of baiting a Bigfoot. One of the campers heard from a friend that once upon a time a backpacker's backpack had been ransacked by a Bigfoot and the the oatmeal packets were consumed. Sure.
I work for a video production company that produces mediocre quality training videos for professional development and I still think this 60-minute DVD was worse.
One last thing. I can't tell you how irritating it was to watch the static-3/4-sky-video-with-audio-overlay! This technique was used throughout the DVD. If I didn't know what the title was and had the sound muted, I would have guessed this was a how-to video on dove hunting. Note to producers: When I watch a Bigfoot video and there is a recounting of a sighting where you are trying to paint a picture of what happened, pan the mountains, streams, valleys, meadows, etc. where the event took place. The first time this technique was used in the DVD was my clue that the producers had nothing to show. This is where I should have stopped watching.

It's nice to see a Bigfoot show that doesn't rehash the same old territory. This has a lot of info that has not been seen in a documentary before. And nobody has more from Prof. Read morePublished on March 1, 2005 by Rob Thomas
