Bobcat Goldthwait Directing Found-Footage Bigfoot Flick

Bobcat Titan

While most of us known Bobcat Goldthwait as Zed from the Police Academy films, he’s actually a pretty accomplished director. His God Bless America was a big hit with Magnet, and he’s been extremely open with stating that various horror films lend in his style. I just hope that this time, as he delves in found-footage, that he brings something new to the table. It sounds like he is..

Next up for the comedian-turned-director is Willow Creek, a found-footage genre film about Bigfoot, says Bleeding Cool.

The site adds that this one isn’t a schlocky horror picture, adding that Goldthwait has apparently mixed satire with some suspense and, overall, his film is apparently rather driven by “exploring the idea of bearing witness.” They’re also told there are various characters in the film who believe they’ve seen the elusive Sasquatch and they give differing accounts, even come to fight over it. Goldthwait uses this for some observations on faith and religion.

Eduardo Sanchez, director on Blair Witch Project and V/H/S/2, is now in post-production on Exists, his own found-footage Bigfoot flick. We’ve also seen the recent release of the horrendous direct-to-disc release of Lost Coast Tapes.

    I was very disappointed by God Bless America. I like Goldthwait, but God Bless America couldn’t capitalize on a very intriguing and “different” premise. Plus, it was kind of stupid at times.

    Still, I’ll give the Bigfoot film a try, because, I still support Goldthwait.

    I really like God Bless America, but felt the tone of the film fluctuated to much. When it was going balls to the wall it was funny and original but veered off to often. Curious about his new film but am really over found footage films.

    Windy City Heat was hilarious when I first saw it. Now, it makes me sad that they could do that to a person, even if he’s an asshole.

    I pretty much loved GOB BLESS AMERICA! I have seen it several times and showed it to many friends who also loved it. The long spouts of dialogue were some of the most well written lines I have heard in a long time. I don’t know, maybe it’s because the views of the film represent my own so closely it was nice to see it put together like that. Plus, that movie theater scene and the slow-mo rapid fire on the church group were some of the greatest stuff put to film in a long time. Also, baby death in the first five minutes.

    so…would this be considered a found big footage movie?
