AICN HORROR CONTEST: Win a badass limited edition poster for the new film BIGFOOT: THE LOST COAST TAPES!

Hey folks, Ambush Bug here. This year, fans of Squatchploitation films have reason to rejoice. Not only do we have BIGFOOT COUNTRY and EXISTS (from the makers of BLAIR WITCH PROJECT) coming soon, but the above film, BIGFOOT: THE LOST COAST TAPES is leading the pack by going into limited release starting October 19 before coming to VOD November 2. The film is directed by Corey Grant and stars Drew Rausch, Rich McDonald (HBO’s Generation Kill), Ashley Wood, Noah Weisberg and Frank Ashmore. Here’s the official synopsis; 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.

Here’s the trailer.

To celebrate this film’s release, the kind folks behind BIGFOOT: THE LOST COAST TAPES wants to give 2 copies of the badass limited edition poster above this article away to two lucky AICN HORROR readers. All you have to do is share a scary story about your encounter with the Sasquatchonian kind in 200 words or less and you could have the poster above to decorate your wall. Be sure to include your full address or you won’t be considered for the contest.

Winners will be announced tomorrow.

Best of luck!

    Sooooo sick of Big Foot

    by J

    Really miss Nimoy's series from the 70's. What was that called? Oh and First? Just sayin'

    Bigfoot movies used to be much more charming in the 70's

    by AlienFanatic

    Stuff like The Legend of Boggy Creek, The Legend of Bigfoot, and even movies like Snowbeast had a campy charm. Watching that video just made me realize how cheap and cynical these films have become in the video age. I can't imagine it took more than a weekend of live shooting and a couple days of digital FX work to crank out that crap. In the 70's, Bigfoot movies seemed to take the hoax/phenomenon seriously, but now they're just another tired trope.

    Wendigo, on the other hand, is quite cool.

    'Specially when he and Wolverine are whoppin on each other.... knowwhatImeanVern?

  • There's also a newer Bigfoot doc, also narrated by Nimoy, on Netflix called "Ancient Mysteries: Bigfoot" which wasn't too bad.

    Badass? Limited Edition?

    by daggor

    Bug, get your priorities straight. Are these buddies of yours, or are you hyping up this VOD POS just because they gave you TWO (2!!!) posters? This isn't a VHS rental store - it's AICN.

    Hell Yeah! 'In Search Of..." was awesome!

    by Nice Marmot

    What a random, wonderful memory to just pop back into my head. Thanks peeps . . .

    Then what is Bigfoot hiding from? I'm confused.

    by spacehog

    Is Bigfoot the bad guy or is there something else in the woods that's dragging these people around? I don't get it. Nothing other than that tagline suggests there's something that isn't Bigfoot involved.

    I don't get anything from the people who made this film other than a buzz from knowing there's another possibly cool Bigfoot film coming on the horizon. As readers of my Friday column know, I have a soft spot in my cold dead heart for Bigfoot films, so news of a new one always gets me excited. Sorry you don't share the enthusiasm. I think the poster is pretty awesome.

  • I've tried many of the recent ones and I've been left cold by all of them. Give me another Boggy Creek or even a documentary like Mysterious Monsters and I'm all over it, even though I know Bigfoot is a hoax. Sadly, what we get are mostly by-the-numbers schlock horror films with Bigfoot filling in for another random, slimy monster. For my dollar, the creep factor of Boggy Creek is FAR higher than any of these modern films that turn 'Squatch into a slasher. (Except, of course, the fun and nearly awesome "Abominable" film, which is the only modern one I've actually bought.)

    I suggest Troll

    its the new-jack shaky cam ilk but it's pretty damn good

    I hear you. The straight to ScyFy Channel films are pretty awful. But with this film, BIGFOOT COUNTRY, and especially EXISTS by Eduardo Sanchez, I have hope for the sub genre yet. Though the best modern Bigfoot film I've seen in the last few years was THE WILDMAN OF THE NAVIDAD. It's amazing. Totally inspired by BOGGY CREEK, but somewhat modern. It's a weird, but awesome film.

    Poster Contest

    by Ricky Compton

    Returning from a hunting trip in the forest, our family's car hits an animal in the road. At first we feared it was a man, but when we examined the "body" we found it was a "bigfoot". We thought it was dead so we decided to take it home (we thought there could be some money in this.). As you guessed, "it" wasn't dead. Far from being the ferocious monster we fear him to be, he was a friendly giant that we called "Larry". In our attempts to keep Larry a secret, we have to hide him from the authorities and a man, who has made it his goal in life, to catch a "bigfoot". It was quite comical time in our life.
