There is a creature - more precisely Bigfoot - loose in the woods surrounding a small town in the middle of nowhere, USA, and it seems to be intent on killing everyone stupid enough to take a stroll through the forest - and believe me, there are many who stroll.

And while the local sheriff (Reb Brown) still tries to figure out what's going on - after all, the belief in Bigfoot is less widespread than the belief in Santa Claus -, scientist Sarah Evans (Leilani Sarelle) enters the scene, and it doesn't take her long to force the sheriff to work with her. On the other end of the spectrum, there's a criminal Bigfoot hunter, Crawford (David Campbell), who wants to kill Bigfoot as a trophy, and he doesn't shy away from anything to get what he wants ... so he soon rounds up Charlie (Ted Prior) and Cindy (Alissa Koenig), the last two survivors of a survival group that had fallen prey to Bigfoot, and uses them as bait.

And if you now think you know where all this will lead to ... you're very probably wrong!

No matter which way you look at it, Night Claws is not the most original movie, even the surprise ending moving swiftly away from monster movie standards, is just a collection of clichées borrowed from another genre.

That said, in its straightforwardness in both story and execution, Night Claws is still fun at least, it's formulaic and simplistic genre entertainment for sure, and it doesn't break any new ground ... but it moves along its story swiftly enough, provides all the right shocks at all the right momentsand delivers exactly what you expect a low budget monster movie to - in other words, fine old school genre cinema.

True, the film will very probably never be regarded a classic of any sort - but at least it's sure to entertain monster movie fans ...
