Monstro Bizarro: ‘Willow Creek’ Movie Trailer Released!

on June 26, 2013 | Leave a comment

The trailer for Bobcat Goldthwait’s new bigfoot horror film, WILLOW CREEK, has been released.

I was excited about this, not only because I would have a chance to visit with Bobcat, but also because Willow Creek is a “bigfoot horror movie.” As a bigfoot researcher and a fan of horror movies, what could be better than a movie that combines the two elements? Especially if it adds historical perspective and real-life settings in the areas of Willow Creek, California, and specifically Bluff Creek where Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin shot their famous bigfoot film in 1967.

The Yeti (aka the Abominable Snowman) is, of course, the Bigfoot-like creature said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet. Stories of the mountainous ape-beast first came to the attention of Westerners in the 19th century. Since then, numerous explorers have tried to capture or otherwise prove that the creature exists, while filmmakers have cranked out snow-shovel loads of horror movies inspired by the subject.

For those that would like a quick rundown of Yeti history, check out this very cool graphic posted by the folks over at Outside Magazine.
