Editorial Reviews

Shot by a 5-time Emmy-winner and his intrepid crew, this new 1-hour documentary is a thinking-person's look at one of the most fascinating animals of the American West: bigfoot. This fresh look at the species includes unprecedented access to the nation's top bigfoot researcher (a respected university biologist); detailed examinations of key sightings; and a unique expedition deep into the Rocky Mountain wilderness--to the exact location of a famed encounter.

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.

Terrible, amateur-ish filmmaking (not to mention DVD authoring my 13-year-cousin could achieve on his PC in his bedroom).

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.

This DVD was produced in 2004 in the state of Idaho by a 5-time Emmy winner and his intrepid crew, and I recommend it if you want to hear some good eyewitness accounts from the state of Idaho, and also hear from Dr. Jeff Meldrum. One of the more interesting parts of this documentary is when a group of students decides to try to fool Dr. Meldrum with a fake track made out of all things, a piece of a pumpkin shaped like a foot with dermal ridges painted on. It's a neat trick, since a pumpkin does resemble a human foot in texture, but Dr. Meldrum isn't so easily fooled. Two compelling eyewitness accounts round up the first half-hour, with both interviewees believing that they had sightings because they were engaged in activity that attracted the attention of the Sasquatch. Dr. Meldrum is also seen in the field investigating with a group of researchers. The first half-hour I have no problem with; the second half-hour leaves a bit to be desired. A crew of young students goes out in the woods in what can only be described as a cross between The Blair Witch Project and The Real World. The five students don't seem to have the most basic clue about how to react when a Bigfoot is nearby (they freak out when they hear a pack of geese fly over, for cripes' sake!). They mistake the geese for a bunch of monkeys chattering, which indicates they are true greenhorns who don't know the most basic things about the forest sounds. They do lay out bait consisting of oatmeal, which seems pretty sound strategy to be honest, since Dr. Meldrum did mention that in the course of his field research, he heard backpacks being rifled through by some animal, possibly a Sasquatch, but he did not see it for sure. However, the main things that were taken were oatmeal packets by whatever animal ransacked the backpacks. I won't give away too much more, but this documentary isn't too bad, and I do recommend it, even with a few reservations. It is available through Amazon.com

Too bad it's Carrie Hitchcock.

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.

Peace.

Anybody who knows anything about Bigfoot knows that this documentary stands head and shoulders above the rest because it landed unprecedented access to Jeff Meldrum, the Idaho professor.

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.

Very compelling

The thing I liked about this DVD is that is really gets outside Washington and Oregon. The filmmakers focused on the area around Idaho and Utah--not your stereotypical bigfoot area. But anyone who has lived in the Intermountain region knows there have been plenty of sasquatch sightings in that area.

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."

The few who awarded this DVD 5 stars must be the same people who force their friends and family to watch home movies of their kid's b-day parties.

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.

Save your $15.
