review by
Mike Haberfelner

Young Cory (Dawson Hilfiger) has just moved into the middle of nowhere, rural USA, and finds it somewhat hard to adjust - when his dad (Shane Nickerson) disappears, and the mess that's left behind suggests whoever took him was looking for one of his Super 8 film reels. Corey though knows where dad has stashed away a very special reel, and he takes it to film class the next day - the only class where he, a film fanatic, has found any real friends, Boone (Nicholas Olson), Boone's girlfriend Sandra (Sophie Guss), and lovely Millie (Grace Hines). They watch the reel and spot glimpses of Bigfoot (James Carolus) on the footage, and what's more, it seems to have been filmed in some nearby woods where dad lived many years ago. The four of them get all excited about this, and soon set out to hopefully run across Bigfoot to film him, and to save Cory's dad, as the two seem connected. Thing is, things don't totally add up yet, as why would Bigfoot kidnap Cory's dad let alone even know what Super 8 film is? And why are there all these beartraps in the forest? And why are there two armed men patrolling the area if this is a quiet rural town? And when will the two school bullies learn that they're not very good at their job? All questions that still need answers when our heroes actually run into Bigfoot ...


A nice addition to the ever-growing number of Bigfoot movies, and one that adds coming-of-age and mystery elements, plus a bit of comedy, to the monster movie formula to make this one pretty entertaining genre entry. And while the film might lack much monster spectacle and take a route a bit too family friendly for at least some genre fans, it does make up for it with an interesting story that has a solid arc and ultimately presents its monster in an unexpected light, and it's a film that makes it easy to lean back to and enjoy.
