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.”
According to High-Def Digest, Synapse Films has plans to release the bigfoot horror classic, CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE, on Blu-Ray. No solid release date was given, but it’s expected to arrive in stores sometime next year.
The 2nd Annual Boggy Creek Festival is coming up this weekend Oct 24-25, 2014 in Fouke, Arkansas. Fouke is, of course, home of the infamous Legend of Boggy Creek. The purpose of the event is to bring together the local community and to share information about the sasquatch-like creature that has been sighted in the area for over a century. The festival features local arts and crafts, music, entertainment, food vendors, and presentations by some of the top bigfoot researchers in the field.
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.)
The premier will be a full day of Bigfoot events and activities related to the movie release.
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.
