Oh, what the heck? Let’s just make today, “Bigfoot Movie Friday”!
It has been several months since I last talked about film maker Jordan Blum’s Bigfoot horror movie “Savage”. In fact you would have to go all the way back to September of last year since we last got any work on what looks to be a really good Sasquatch-gone-wild movie.
Today, I have a couple of clips, one, the second trailer from the film, and two, the opening title sequence.
Both, I have to say, are very impressive looking. In fact, I would venture to say, that out of all the Bigfoot movies in production right now, “Savage” looks the most polished. Now that doesn’t take anything away from James Baack’s “Bloody Rage of Bigfoot” or Tyler Meyer’s, “The Legend of Grassman.” That film looks really good too, and Baack’s film has witches that kiss each other. Also good.
“Savage” is just a bigger budget film, that looks a little more main-stream. That could be good, or bad, depending on your taste in movies.
A bigger budget means bigger names and “Savage” stars veteran television and movie actor, Marty Kove (The Karate Kid, 2 & 3), Tony Becker (Little House on the Prairie), renowned fantastic films star, Lisa Wilcox (Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Star Trek: The Next Generation), soap opera star, Anna Enger and small screen actor, Shane Callahan (Dawson’s Creek).
Here’s the plot:
A blazing forest fire rips its way through Bear Mountain National Park. As the firefighters try to contain it, the animals are being forced out of their habitat including a beast that was better left undiscovered. Now several firefighters are missing or found mutilated.
When word about the fire spreads, Dale, a scientist dedicated to proving the existence of Bigfoot, hires Jack, a local Bigfoot hunting legend, to help him track the beast. Dale wishes to provide proof of the beast’s existence, Jack wants to find it for revenge. Owen, a park ranger, begins poking around searching for poachers who might be interested in taking pop shots at the fleeing wildlife. He stumbles across Richard and Gabrielle, two petty criminals who are on the run from the law. Owen soon discovers that this simple arrest is anything but routine when he encounters the Bigfoot.
As the creature tears a path through the forest destroying everything and everyone it comes in contact with, Owen must race home to rescue his pregnant wife who stands in the beast’s deadly path and restore order to the park.
Roll the clips.
