Monstro Bizarro: ‘Valley of the Sasquatch’ Movie News

on February 25, 2015 | 1 Comment

The new horror film Valley of the Sasquatch recently began its film festival run with a world premiere last weekend at the Nevermore Film Festival in North Carolina. But for writer/director John Portanova, the process of bringing this story of a fractured family battling a tribe of angry Sasquatch to life was years in the making.

“Growing up I spent most of my free time studying cryptozoology and the unknown,” Portanova said. “Instead of going outside and playing for recess, I would read books from the 001 section of the library about encounters with Bigfoot or alien abductions. My after school viewing habits consisted of watching paranormal investigation shows such as Unsolved Mysteries or Sightings. Years later when I graduated from film school, I took some time off so I could write my first real screenplay. There was only one idea that really inspired me: making a scary and action-packed movie that respected the history of Sasquatch.”

Monstro Bizarro: ‘Bigfoot vs. D.B. Cooper’ Movie

on April 16, 2014 | 1 Comment

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.)

Monstro Bizarro: The True Story of the Lizard Man

on October 21, 2013 | 1 Comment

I’m proud to announce that my new book, LIZARD MAN: THE TRUE STORY OF THE BISHOPVILLE MONSTER, is now available from Anomalist Books.

From the swamplands near Bishopville, South Carolina, come reports of a seven-foot-tall, scaly humanoid creature the locals call the “Lizard Man.” Over the years, the creature has been seen by numerous witnesses, including a teenager who claimed it attacked him one night near a remote area called Scape Ore Swamp. The young man’s testimony and physical evidence was so compelling, it not only launched a serious investigation by the local sheriff’s office but an all-out monster hunt that drew hundreds of people to the small town.
