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.
