Bigfoot POV Horror Project 'The Lost Coast Tapes' Up for Sale at AFM

October 27, 2011

The Lost Coast Tapes

Big foot?! Where? The found footage craze continues with a new project called The Lost Coast Tapes, a POV horror-thriller about an investigative journalist and his group that travel to Northern California to find the legendary Sasquatch, but the footage of that trip is now all that remains. The film is up for sale at the American Film Market starting next week, and has already completed production, it's packaged and ready to go. Along with the news, Continental Media, who is selling this at AFM, has debuted a gnarly teaser poster with this amazing tagline: "It doesn't like being called a hoax." Oh sh*t! Check it out and more info below.

"Combining the POV-horror format with the folklore of Bigfoot, this completed film is sure to gain traction with a global audience," is Continental founder Matthew Shreder's cold sales pitch on it. Here's their poster:

The IMDb synopsis sheds more light on this film: After a "Bigfoot Hunter" claims to possess the body of a dead Sasquatch, a disgraced investigative journalist stakes his comeback -- and the lives of his documentary film crew -- on proving the find to be a hoax. Obviously shit goes down once they actually find the creature.

The Lost Coast Tapes stars emerging actiung talents Drew Rausch (The Closer, Battleship), Rich McDonald (Generation Kill), Noah Weisberg ("Law & Order"), industry vet Frank Ashmore ("The Guild") and model Ashley Wood. The film is produced by Chevez Frazier of New Breed Entertainment, who recently wrapped post-production on the feature. It's written by Brian Kelsey & Bryan O'Cain and directed by Corey Grant, who has directed a few films prior including Studio and Hip-Hop Task Force. As this is currently up for sale, we're not sure on any release info yet, but expect to see it sometime in 2012. Here's their official Facebook.

    This poster is stupid, how can bigfoot get the guy up that high? The more you think about it, the more ridiculous it seems.
    • Josh Taylor
      I love it! I am picturing bigfoot hurling the guy up there from the top of a cliff or a mountain with great accuracy!
      • Ultim8
        yes, or maybe It was trying to make a point/warning and made the effort to drag the guy up to the top of the tree before impaling him!
  • Dom
    All depends on the realism of the Bigfoot - that and believable characters with minimum throwaway lines.
  • Voice of Reason
    Sounds like fun, but Im not gonna shell out for another found-footage flick. Pfft, waiting an hour and a half for a possible glimpse of a badass Harry—estranged from the Hendersons—after 90 minutes full of terrified faces, jerky camera and surround sounds of off-screen shuffling.

    next time on "messin with sasquatch"...brought to you by jack links
  • Did Bigfoot slam dunk that guy on the tree like in NBAJam?
  • Anonymous
  • Humans used to do that to people in Bosnia. it's pretty easy if your determined enough. Peter Howson did some paintings of the ones he saw first hand. On the the other hand maybe the tree grew really fast.
  • LW
    Sasquatch is just trying to protect his boy, JB, his little baby sass.
  • Sasquatcher
    I don't think this is going to be the same-old Bigfoot story for some's 2011.  Besides, they have some cool pics from set on their Facebook page here I found:
