Big FootBigfoot is real and hunters are out to get him in this low budget film starring John Carradine. The idea of capturing the gigantic ""King of the Woods"" for a circus or profitable public exhibition show fills the hunters with ideas when a young woman disappears and is thought to be captured by Bigfoot. Hip college students and a skeptical sheriff are also aware of the woman's disappearance and all set out to search for the missing woman.
The recent earth-shaking announcement by Melba Ketchum that Sasquatch DNA has finally been sequenced emerges from a years-long study of hair, blood and tissue samples obtained at various "habituation sites"-places with which members of this primate species have become familiar. Until very recently, our only publicly shared knowledge of Sasquatch came through reports of chance encounters and fleeting glimpses by eyewitnesses, as well as the rare piece of video or film footage. Yet meanwhile, throughout North America, certain people have been patiently and privately building a much more nuanced, long-term understanding, seeking-in the great and humane tradition of Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey-to learn from this evasive, shrewd and tricky hominid race. Now, Impossible Visits fills in this background story-the groundbreaking work of ordinary (and unsung) human beings who have experienced and fostered, sometimes for decades, consistent Sasquatch visitations to their homes and properties. This species has survived alongside Homo sapiens, down through the eons, thanks to enormous stealth, maintaining a necessary margin of physical distance. The "habituators" have succeeded, not in bridging this distance, but in establishing a rapport that allows for the regular exchange of food and gifts, and even occasional clear daylight sightings. One by one, and in concert, these accounts will help to assemble a solid, highly textured infrastructure of knowledge against the day when a specimen body is "harvested"-as nearly transpired in the 2010 "Sierra Kills" incident. At this time, the media will attempt to spike ratings by provoking hysteria among the general public: It's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"...FOR REAL! But dead giants tell no tales, so the key will be for a variety of level-headed sources to exist, where all accumulated insight can reveal the intelligence and civility of our zoological cousin, helping to erect a legal barrier between Sasquatch and its would-be trophy hunters. Impossible Visits is the only book to open windows onto multiple habituation sites, to show-through rich, first-person testimonials and the author's own field notes-the nature and behavior of these fringe-dwelling neighbors.
"The best Bigfoot doc of this decade!" - Eduardo Sanchez, Co-Writer and Co-Director of "THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT" and Writer and Director of "SEVENTH MOON" "The production values and cinematography are terrific, the re-creations are well-done and the entire package is absorbing. I highly recommend you check it out." - Alex Grecian, Writer and Co-Creator of the Image Comics series "PROOF" The American South has its own unique traits, people, cuisine, and way of life, and according to some people, its own monsters. While many have heard the legends of Bigfoot in the Pacific Northwest, the stories of boogers, wild men, and skunk apes lurking in the backwoods and bayous of the Southern U.S. aren't as well known. With commentary from believers, skeptics, and the open-minded, "SOUTHERN FRIED BIGFOOT" is a documentary that explores the legends, tales, and possible reality of the hairy monsters that are purported to prowl the wild areas of the South. As seen on The Documentary Channel and Destination America, "SFB" profiles some of the people and groups who have made efforts to study and pursue the southern Sasquatch. While it covers the broad topic of strange creatures below the Mason-Dixon Line, a few key legends are highlighted. They include: The Fouke Monster, the hairy creature that has been sighted around Fouke, Arkansas for decades and was the inspiration for the cult classic film "The Legend of Boggy Creek;" The Skunk Ape, the foul-smelling creature that is said to haunt the Everglades in Florida; The Honey Island Swamp Monster, the beast that is rumored to prowl the swamplands northeast of New Orleans, Louisiana; and The Lake Worth Monster, a white shaggy creature that was sighted repeatedly near Fort Worth, Texas in the late 1960s. Are these stories just myths or misidentifications, or could there actually be something unknown watching you from the dark shadows of the trees...? DVD includes the 1-hour documentary and 45 minutes of Extras. (c) The Monkeyhouse
