Movie Review: The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot

By Dorraine Fisher

The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot, starring Sam Elliott and Aidan Turner is not what you’d expect. This is a really cheesy title for a film attempting to be as serious as it can. And I think it succeeds...for the most part.

As Sam Elliott arguably delivers some of the best acting of his career, I would venture to guess that many bigfoot believers, as unconventional as they are, would be able to get past the strangeness of the premise of this film and really enjoy it. Though many bigfoot researchers could be left completely cold by the Hollywood-style portrayal of the bigfoot... or completely delighted. The jury’s still out.

This will probably be a short review and once you read this, you will understand why it is short. I also want to alert everyone that this film is current on Amazon Prime if you would like to watch it.
The film features David Bakara and his awesome looking bigfoot museum, Expedition Bigfoot. For decades David and Malinda Bakara have searched for the legendary cryptid known as Bigfoot. In 2016 the Bakaras opened Expedition: Bigfoot! This short film is shot mainly in said museum.

This film itself is pretty good, but very short. During the film David tells about some of the exhibits in the museum and relays some of the sighting reports that have been told to him.



Thanks to Holly Mullins, I was introduced to a pretty cool new online magazine, called Living Paranormal Magazine. Holly also writes for the publication along with several other folks.

Living Paranormal is a fairly new online magazine, but it is off to a fantastic start. It is also offered for a great price, FREE. Each issues is packed with some very good artwork and photographs.The writing is good and the articles are informative and entertaining.

The online mag features all aspects of paranormal articles and even some short horror stories. It also features things like conspiracy theories, myths, movie reviews, interviews and more.

Currently, there are only 2 issues available, you can view them at the links below.

Running Time: 88 Minutes

First, let me start by saying that this movie is pretty old, it was released in 1994, by the then hot PM entertainment. The story line for this film is pretty straight forward with a few twist. A young boy gets lost in the woods and befriends a Bigfoot. Bigfoot tries to help the young boy get back to his family and the young boy tries to help bigfoot avoid crazed hunters out to collect a million dollar bounty for killing bigfoot.

The movie features a pretty solid cast, Zachery Ty Bryan from Home Improvement TV show, Crystal Chappell from numerous TV shows, Clint Howard from many TV shows and movies and Rif Hutton who may be best known for his voice over work in video games and numerous movies, he was also been on several TV shows. The film also stars Matt McCoy, who does a really good job in the film.


Scarred
 Rated: ? 
Running Time: 87 minutes
  Movie Review
by
Thomas Marcum

Lets see, where do I start with the movie Scarred ....hmm the plot is pretty straight forward, lovely young models go a photo shoot in a beautiful country setting. The only problem with the shoot's locations is that it is near the abandoned land of the Kandie family. The Kandie family story is one of a murderous and cruel father who disfigures his son, Jonah, and then kills his wife and himself. According the the Kandie tale, all were assumed dead, but the body of Jonah was never found.

Now you are up to speed on the backstory.

This movie may be considered a slow starter, but at least you have some pretty models to look at until the gore train kicks in. At around the 40 minute mark things start to pick up and the killing begins. The gore is pretty good and should satisfy most of the gore hounds. There are a few gore scenes that are pretty cringe worthy.  It seems that now grown Jonah Kandie has grew to hate pretty people and feels the need to ugly them up. His weapon of choice is a hammer but he also welds the ol' chainsaw a few times, along with other items.

At times the acting is pretty good and at other times totally terrible. The movie fits well into the 80's slasher flick genre. Of course, just like many 80's horror movies, there is nothing ground breaking here. But if you like pretty girls and slasher type movies, it is a decent watch.

What I find funny about this film is that it has grew on me. When I first watched it this morning, I was like "it's decent I guess", but as the day wore on I got to thinking more about some of the scenes and the movie in general and started to think "yeah, it was alright."

There is something else that might appeal to true horror fans. We all remember the original Friday the 13th, and we remember at the end a young Jason Voorhees splashes up out of the water and grabs the girl in the canoe. The actor who played that very first young Jason (Ari Lehman) is in Scarred. I didn't realize who it was at the time but his character was one that stood out to me, so it was cool to discovery who he was.

In the end, the movie is nothing new but it should have some appeal to those who like 80's style horror flicks. Make sure to check out the movie website - scarredthemovie.com

Feed The Gods
Rated: Not Rated
Running Time: 85 minutes

Feed The Gods is an adventure/ horror film directed by Braden Croft.The film centers around two brothers who go searching for their biological parents after their guardian suffers a stroke and passes away. The two brothers are alerted to the possible whereabouts of their actual parents via a video tape. 

It just so happens the little town in which the bothers parents where living in has a history of Sasquatch sightings and activity. Once the brothers and a girlfriend arrive in the town they discover that the town is almost a ghost town. The town folks, what few of them there are, are really strange and weird acting.

This film was shot in Canada and as we all know, Canada has beautiful wilderness and a history of Bigfoot sightings. 

So far, it's sounding pretty good ...right? Well, the plotline is decent enough, the acting is decent enough, the location is spot on, the Sasquatch figure looks fair (Once you see it), but this movie just turns out to be a disappointment.

Once, again the Sasquatch are portrayed as murderous monsters but in this sleepy town they really have a lot of help. The movie is dark and rather slow moving but if you can stay interested to about half way the pieces start to fall together. It's still not enough to save the film but at least you get the bigger picture.

For Bigfoot fans, the film just does not focus on the Bigfoot element enough and you just do not get to see the Bigfoot until the movie is almost over. Even once you see the creature, it is very brief or blurred on purpose.

So with all that said, I just can not recommend this movie unless you are just really in a mood to watch a bad horror movie. I say, "Let the Gods go hungry."

Exists
Rated: R
Running time: 81 minutes

Exists is a Bigfoot movie directed by Eduardo Sanchez. Some of you may remember Sanchez from the film The Blair Witch Project. I was not a big fan of The Blair Witch Project but do appreciate it for the marketing strategy. I ran a video store at the time Blair Witch came out and the marketing used portrayed the film as being real and it really hooked people.

Sanchez also directed one of my favorite movies, Altered. Altered was a rednecks find an alien film that was just fantastic in my eyes. I may do an in depth review of it as some point, but for now lets get back to the new film. 

With Exists the filming is very similar to Sanchez's earlier work in The Blair Witch Project. There are a lot of hand held video shots, shaky camera scenes and heavy use of GoPro cameras. But, the camera work is very effective in this film. Don't let the idea of the the shaky hand held shots put you off, this movie is filmed very well and this type of filming is a corner stone for Sanchez.

The plotline in Exists is pretty straight forward. A camping trip to an uncles cabin becomes a nightmare of terror from an unknown creature in the woods. Of course, this creature is none other than our beloved Bigfoot.

Some may be put off at the idea of a Bigfoot being a murderous monster, but there is a revenge element to the film. I will not get into this, as it would contain some spoilers and I don't want to ruin it for anyone.

The Bigfoot suit used in this film is top notch and may be one of the best in recent memory. There are a few scenes where I can see some clever trickster ripping it from the film and posting it to youtube as a personal sighting, so beware.

The film does an excellent job of building terror and suspense. There are a few "jumpy" parts that might make your heart skip a beat. That's always fun.

One thing, of the few, that I didn't like about the film was the Bigfoot howls. I don't think they represented the recordings I have heard or what others have described. But this is just a minor issue and most people will not even notice or think about it.  There is also some rock throwing that was pretty good and it made me think of the numerous reports and accounts I have heard and read about that included this Bigfoot behavior.

So in closing, I can recommend the film for anyone who has an interest in Bigfoot or just likes a good scary movie. Hats off to Sanchez for doing a fine job and beating my expectations. Also the DVD version I purchased has some great extra content, like deleted scenes and stuff, that I recommend you also watch.

Willow Creek
Rated: Not Rated, Running time: 80 minutes 
Director: Bobcat Goldthwait

First let me start off with this, if you do not have an interest in Bigfoot or know a little about the history or behavior of Bigfoot, then do not even attempt to watch this movie.

This movie is about a novice Bigfoot researcher and his totally unbelieving girlfriend going to camp in the famous Bluff Creek area where Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin shot the famous Patty footage in 1967.

At first I found the film somewhat entertaining with the funny one liners and seeing all the Bigfoot related spots in the Bluff Creek area. I really liked the look of the Bigfoot Burger, I would like to try one of them. For those who don't know, the Bigfoot burger is a giant hamburger on bread that looks like a foot and let me tell ya it looked good.

There are also some interviews with people who tell about the area and sightings. During this part of the film it seems as if the subject of Bigfoot is being made fun of. It seems the opportunity was lost to really drive home the fact about Bigfoot sightings in the area. The interviewees come off as weird and slightly crazy. Oddly, the Cliff Barackman interview was left out of the movie but is offered in the bonus segment of the DVD. Barackman's interview was entertaining and informative, why it was left out of the final version of the film is beyond me. 

In about the middle of the film there is a real lull. It takes place while the young couple is inside the tent and are awaken by odd sounds. During this part of the film the audio is so low you can't hear what the couple are saying and the odd sounds are hard to hear. Later as the sounds get closer you can hear wood knocks, howls and some rocks being thrown. Sadly this as close to a Bigfoot you get in the film.

Now for the ending, as the Bigfoots stalk the two young campers out of the area, we are treated with more howls and rock throwing. Once night falls the now lost couple are sitting in the dark and scared. Then we get a glimpse of a bizarre naked female figure, possibly a local missing woman ..... I'll stop right there with the details but let me finish by just saying I found the ending weird. Director Bobcat Goldthwait has a history of weird and thought provoking films to his credit, so for some this might fall into that category.

Overall the film had some moments but in the end I was disappointed in it.

Today I watched the premier of Mirage Men, so I thought I'd write a little review of the film.
First, let me say if you are looking for a documentary that shows a bunch of UFO footage and stuff like that, then look else where because there is very little of it in this film. 

Now if you are interested in the inner workings of how the government sows disinformation to the UFO crowd and then the general public, then you have to watch this film.
It has some wow factors that shows the extremes that are taken to not only gather information but to also plant disinformation.

I did enjoy the film but it really ask and creates more questions on what is a real UFO story and what is a disinformation story.  Richard Doty is the now civilian who is "coming clean" after years of working to cover, gather and plant disinformation for the government, but in the end you just can't trust what he is telling you.

This is a very thought provoking film and should make you question just what the government tells us, not only about UFOs but everything.

Who would you trust?

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
Rated: R
Running Time: 105 minutes
DVD Movie Review
by
Thomas Marcum


I've had this movie sitting on my shelve for several months now, I've been somewhat reluctant to watch it. That reluctance changed after all our local services, including TV, went out and stayed out for several hours. 
The movie is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's book of the same title and Tim Burton was one of the producers of the film.

The movie combines the historical figure Abraham Lincoln and the legend of Vampires. The film portrays Lincoln as having a secret life as a vampire hunter driven by revenge. This revenge factor starts when Lincoln, as a young boy, witnesses a man kill his mother. The film also deals with historical events that took place during Lincoln's lifetime, namely slavery and the civil war. It manages to blend all these elements together and tie them to the vampire hunting plot.

While watching the film I was really impressed with the fight scenes and the overall telling of the story. In my opinion the movie was very well written and  thought out. Even though the vampires are central to the film, you still get a lot of Lincoln and his political raise to becoming president. There is also some romantically elements in the film that add value to the story.

As for the vampires, there is plenty of blood and frightening scenes to make the horror buffs happy. Action fans will find the fight scenes with Lincoln wielding his silver coated ax a blast. Chopping off heads and limbs of his vampire opponents. The over head shots of the civil war battles are great as well, with cannon balls blowing up earth and men.

I had a good time watching this movie, it was a pleasant surprise. It was nice to follow Lincoln from a young child all the way up to being President. The movie is probably unlike anything you have seen before, but don't let that keep you from giving it a try.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars - Watch it!

The Haunting of Whaley House
The Haunting of Whaley House
The Haunting of Whaley House
Rated: NR, Running Time: 90 minutes
Directed by Jose Prendes
Release date: 2012, Available Now- Blu-Ray, DVD, Streaming
 Movie Review
By
Thomas Marcum

This fictitious movie is loosely base on the haunted folklore of the real Whaley House. During the making of this film the real Whaley House was considered for shooting the film but after going into the real Whaley House the director seen that the rooms were just too small to fit the cast, crew and equipment in them.

Now my thoughts about the movie. My wife and I sat back tonight and wanted to watch a decent scary movie, so we picked The Haunting of Whaley House. The basic premise of the movie is what got our attention, a small group of amateur ghost hunters spend a night in the haunted Whaley House.
The movie starts off pretty good and the set up is decent enough, the set up being that a tour guide at Whaley House don't believe the house if really haunted. It's not too long into the movie that the non believing tour guide is talked into taking her friends into the Whaley House for a night visit. There are several gruesome deaths during the movie and a few "jumpy" parts. The acting is decent enough but there is some weak and/or over acted scenes and in some of the scenes the lighting is not the best and the results is a too dark scene but it really don't effect or change the enjoyment of the film.


Overall we found the movie entertaining and my wife actually stayed awake until the end, which rarely happens. If you are a fan of ghosting hunting shows, which is the fan base this film seems geared towards, you might like this movie. While this movie is not a homerun or a must watch by any means, it is a decent film for a cool October night. The movie should be enjoyable for both believers and non believer in the paranormal. Check out The Haunting of Whaley House on Facebook by Clicking Here.

The Haunting of Whaley House is presented by The Asylum, who recently made some waves with the movie Sharknado.

Shadow People
Rated: PG-13,Running Time: 89 minutes
Directed by Matthew Arnold
Release date: March 19th - Blu-Ray & DVD
DVD Movie Review
By
Thomas Marcum

This movie dives into the phenomenon of SUNDS (Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome), which many blame on Shadow People. The movie stars Dallas Roberts from the AMC hit TV show The Walking Dead. Mr. Roberts plays the part of a somewhat down on his luck radio personality just hoping to keep his show on the air. What he gets is a life changing call from a young man named Jeff, who talks about seeing "Shadow People".  Once Charlie Crowe, Roberts character, gets his mind opened to the shadow people and more mysterious deaths occur, a spooky glimpse into the unseen world takes place. The plot thickens again once a CDC agent joins the hunt for a cause of death.

As the movie progresses, Charlie becomes more frazzled and fearful of the shadow people. I found this movie very entertaining and it does a good job creating a creepy atmosphere. According to the storyline Shadow People is based on true events that took place in my corner of the world, Eastern Kentucky. The movie does a excellent job of blending in News footage and what appears to be real world interviews with the real people involved.

While this movie may not appeal to everyone, it does a fine job of  with the subject material. I would suggest you give it a view if you're looking for a creepy supernatural thriller base on some true events.

Watching this movie it brought back a childhood memory of something my dad told. I was about 10-12 years old and early one morning I heard my dad tell my mother how a large dark shadow had came over top of him during the night while sleeping. How it felt like he was smothering and how he said "oh Lord, please No" and the Dark Shadow moved on through the room. He called it "A Death Angle" and later that morning we seen an ambulance at our neighbors house and later found out their
new born, healthy baby had passed away. This was in the same direction the death angle had gone.

So in closing I would just like to say the movie is well done all the way around and well worth watching.
So are Shadow People real? Watch the movie before you answer.

Bigfoot The Lost Coast Tapes
Rated: Not Rated
(Does contain strong language)
Running Time: 89 minutes
DVD Movie Review
by
Thomas Marcum

I didn't really know much about this movie but after reading the back of the case I thought it sounded like it could be good. Here is the basic plotline:  A documentary film crew hears of a hunters claims of having the body of a dead sasquatch, so they get in contact with him and meet up to see the body. All the while filming and documenting every step of the adventure expecting to expose it all as a hoax.

At the first of the movie it has a real Blair Witch type feeling to it, with the first person filming, but after the movie gets going a little and the group gets into the woods the camcorder effect is much less and makes the movie more watchable.
The acting is better than average and the mountain scenery is beautiful, it was filmed in an area of Northern California. There are some good line exchanges between the "believers" and "skeptics" during the film about the real world bigfoot film by Roger Patterson, which adds to the films content and is a plus in my opinion.

As the movie moves along there is a good build up of mystery after some events happen at the cabin, but sadly the movie takes a major nose dive in the last quarter of the film. I don't want to give away too much, but after finishing the movie I felt like the film makers really missed a big opportunity at having something truly special with the film by blowing the ending.  It's the last 20-30 minutes of the movie that really brings it down, in my opinion, as it turns into a typical blood and guts horror movie. Still the trip of the skeptics to believers is a enjoyable ride.

The only other real problem I had with the movie was that you never really see bigfoot, only some faint outlines or maybe a quick foot shot, Another lost opportunity.

All in all I enjoyed the film but would love to go back and rewrite the last 30 minutes of it. This is one of the better bigfoot films and should be watched by the bigfoot community.
