First Trailer for Bobcat Goldthwait's Bigfoot Horror 'Willow Creek'
"But I'm not about to say I believe in bigfoot." Indeed. Neither am I! A new trailer has debuted for Willow Creek, a bigfoot found footage film from director Bobcat Goldthwait. This trailer plays pretty much like Paranormal Activity for bigfoot, with a "real" couple that goes to investigate bigfoot, found footage style. Cue the tent scenes. Cue the nightvision and creepy forest and so on. There's surprisingly no sense of levity at all, which is odd for Goldthwait, but maybe there's more to this than they're showing. It may be a treat for horror fans, but I'm not impressed. One of the best moments: "what is my sock doing in the tree?" Anyone?
Here's the first official trailer for Bobcat Goldthwait's Willow Creek, originally from Badass Digest:
Jim (Bryce Johnson) and his girlfriend Kelly (Alexie Gilmore) are in Willow Creek, California, to retrace the steps of Bigfoot researchers Patterson and Gimlin, who, in 1967, recorded the most famous film of the legendary monster. Kelly is a skeptic, along for the ride to spend time with her boyfriend between acting gigs. Jim, a believer, hopes to capture footage of his own, so his camera is constantly rolling. Synopsis is from IFFBoston.org, and here's the official teaser poster for the film. The artwork below is by Alex Pardee:
Willow Creek is both written and directed by comedian-turned-filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait, of the films Shakes the Clown, Sleeping Dogs Lie, World's Greatest Dad and God Bless America previously. This first premiered at the Independent Film Festival Boston in earlier in spring, and will also play at the Fantasia Film Festival this summer. We're still waiting for other release details - catch this at a film festival for now.
