    Synopsis


    Willow Creek
    A young couple (Alexie Gilmore, Bryce Johnson) venture into Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California to search for Bigfoot, and make a terrifying discovery in this found-footage horror film from writer-director Bobcat Goldthwait. Convinced that he will capture video evidence of Sasquatch at the same place where the legendary Patterson-Gimlin film was shot, Jim (Bryce Johnson) persuades his skeptical girlfriend Kelly (Alexie Gilmore) to join him on a cryptozoological excursion into the deep woods. Before Jim and Kelly set out on their mission, however, they first visit Willow Creek -- a town that thrives on the Bigfoot phenomenon -- to interview the locals about the legend. There, the couple are repeatedly warned that the forest can be a dangerous place at night -- warnings that go unheeded by Jim as he single-mindedly focuses on making the journey he's dreamt about for years. Later, in the darkened woods, however, the once-carefree couple experience paralyzing fear when someone -- or something -- begins rooting around their campsite, and uttering inhuman howls. Uncertain if they've actually survived an encounter with Bigfoot or simply fallen victim to a cruel prank by the locals, Jim and Kelly agree to pack their bags, and return to civilization at sunrise. But this is just the beginning of a nightmare that neither of them may ever awaken from. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A true Bigfoot horror

      You would think Bigfoot and horror would be a great match and while there is no shortage of Bigfoot related horror movies there really aren't any that are worth watching. Willow Creek breaks the mold and creates an atmosphere of rising fear and tension that it pretty well maintains until the last few minutes. In those last few minutes It unfortunately gives way to a lackluster ending (can anyone write a good horror movie ending anymore?!) but I still recommend Willow Creek for fans of Bigfoot. I have been interested in Bigfoot since I was 7 and a few years back was heavily involved in Bigfoot reaseach with a couple of different groups. I have personally experienced almost everything that happens during the "tent scene" and can tell you that the filmmakers really did great job of researching and recreating the BF experience!

      Not Worth The Wait...

      I went into this film hooping to rekindle my love of horror in the vein of The Blair Witch Project, and I suppose that's something this shot for as well, even going so far as to use entire lines from that film when something FINALLY happens in the film and they scamper from their tent in the night. The problem is that up to that point you're basically following around a couple as she humors his belief in Bigfoot and ponders how she could be a skeptic, which grows tedious after about, oh let's say 10 minutes or so. The final 10-15 minutes of actual action or tension are absolutely not worth the wait. Sorry Bobcat, I wanted to like this turkey, but this did NOTHING for me.

      I wanted to give Willow Creek a chance. I had like what I saw in the trailer but people bashed it. I thought a Big Foot found footage movie would be interesting and decided to take a chance. Well an hour or and some time later I feel like I should not be refunded my money but the time I spent watching this film. It literally takes the film an hour to get to the forest were the sightings occur. Pointless and cliche dialogue, with a story that never delivers on scares or a fulfilling conclusion.

      Not what I expected, but not bad.

      This is a different kind of Bobcat Goldthwait movie. Not at all what I expected, but I can dig it. It's definitely closer to something like BLAIR WITCH PROJECT or MONSTERS than a straight up horror movie, but well made and well told. Honestly, this would have been a 4 out of 5, but the shaky cam got to me a couple of times.

      Went into this movie thinking it was going to be just another run of the mill bigfoot movie. I was pleasantly surprised , it wasn't. This is not only a great horror movie , but has a very good storyline . Anyone looking for a top notch bigfoot movie this will surely be at the top of your list .

      The movie follows 2 lovers, on their adventure to find out what really happened in the infamous Patterson/Gimlin footage. It is shot in all "found footage" style and holds pretty level until the end. If you liked the Blair Witch, Cloverfield, VHS movies, this is definitely worth a watch.

      Director Bobcat Goldthwait's latest is a found footage style movie about a young couple searching the woods for Bigfoot. It manages to be both funny and scary at times, but even with the Bigfoot theme, doesn't do anything vastly different other found footage movies. Good, but not great.

      Worst movie experience of the year. Blair Witch meets big foot, except no Bigfoot, no terror, no story, nothing. If you want to be more scared clean your dryer vent.Take my advice, I wish I had listened to a friend, you should listen to a stranger, avoid this movie.
