I’ll be attending Rue Morgue’s Festival of Fear coming up August 28-31 (as part of Toronto’s FanExpo). I’ll have a table in the horror section and will be doing a Monstro Bizarro panel with Rue Morgue editor Dave Alexander on Friday Aug 29 at 2:45pm. We’ll be talking about my new book LIZARD MAN, as well as what’s new in cryptozoology and sasquatch cinema.
The wave of cryptid-inspired television continues with two new shows debuting on Discovery’s Destination America channel. SWAMP MONSTERS and MONSTERS UNDERGROUND take the psuedo-fictional approach of their successful show, MOUNTAIN MONSTERS, to new and scarier places across America.
As everyone knows, I’m a total Boggy Creek geek. My collection includes many vintage items related to the various Boggy Creek movies, and now, thanks to my good friend Cliff Barackman (Finding Bigfoot), I’m the owner of the “juvenile creature” mask from Boggy Creek II (1985).
Has the fine art of sasquatch cinema finally jumped the proverbial shark? This upcoming film from David DeCoteau’s Rapid Heart Pictures certainly begs the questions. In BIGFOOT VS. D.B. COOPER, the legendary monster is pitted against one of the world’s most infamous mystery figures: D.B. Cooper. (For those that don’t remember Dan “D.B.” Cooper, he hijacked a commercial airliner in 1971, demanded a ransom of $200,000 cash – which he received – and then parachuted into the Washington/Oregon wilderness never to be seen again.)
Austin, Texas’ South by Southwest Film Festival has announced the titles which will be shown as part of their Midnighters section. Among the films on this list of “provocative after-dark features for night owls” are several horror entries, one being Eduardo Sanchez’ EXISTS, which will finally see its world premiere. EXISTS was filmed on location in Texas and pays homage to The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972), a film that heavily influenced Sanchez.
