Running Time: 48 minutes
Thanks to my recent subscription to Amazon Prime, I finally get to watch some long overdue bigfoot documentaries and movies. I know some of you may not like the fact that we do movie and book reviews, but it can be important in pointing people to films or book with good information or at least worth the price of admission.
With that said, last night I watched Bigfootville. This is a straight forward bigfoot documentary with witness interviews, skeptic voices, and field research. The film quality is pretty good but not HD as this film is a little older. Don't let the fact this film was made in 2002 put you off, it still has a lot to offer.
The film takes place in rural Oklahoma were numerous reports of a 9 foot tall hairy man have been reported. During the course of the film there are several witness interviews and some investigations. During a night investigation, which included 2 witnesses who had a previous sighting in the area, there is some activity that is pretty interesting. Some rocks are thrown and a dark figure is seen by everyone in the group. One of the witnesses was really emotional about returning to the area, he was nearly to the point of tears. It seems his reservations about returning to the area were on target.
The witnesses who tell about their sightings, all come off as being authentic and truthful. It seems pretty obvious these folks seen something that was out of the norm for the area. Another very interesting part of this documentary is listening to the local Native American tribe talk about it.
Now, a few things about the film bothered me. The overtones the first quarter of the film had me frustrated. It was leaning strongly to idea that all bigfoot sightings were fake and the witnesses liars or just mistaken on what they saw. One big wig anthropologist by the name of Russ Tuttle had me ready to scream at the TV. He was one of those people who spout the old lines of "You seen a bear" and "It was just someone pulling a prank", "there is no evidence of bigfoot".
There was also a wildlife guy who made a statement I have heard many people say and it goes something like this: "I've been in the mountains all my life. I have never seen or found any evidence of bigfoot, there is no such thing." But thankfully I held on and the program improved and got to witness testimony and investigations.
The good news is you can actually watch the movie for Free as it is on youtube. If you have some time I recommend you give it a watch.
Overall, this is a very good bigfoot documentary. I was unable to find this title on DVD, it appears it is unavailable, so Youtube or Amazon is the only way to watch it I guess.
Here is my final rating.
Rating: 3 out of 5
