A few months back we reported that God Bless America and World’s Greatest Dad director Bobcat Goldthwait was working on a found footage Bigfoot movie called Willow Creek.
The film has just premiered at the Boston Independent Film Festival, and thus we now have a few brand new stills to go along with that incredibly badass poster.
While there’s no actual synopsis yet, here’s the festival’s breakdown… READ MORE
A few months back we reported that God Bless America and World’s Greatest Dad director Bobcat Goldthwait was working on a found footage Bigfoot movie called Willow Creek. It looks like he’s further along than I anticipated, the film will be premiering at the Boston Independent Film Festival on April 29th and Badass Digest has a look the amazing poster from artist Alex Pardee.
I’m still not exactly sure what tone the film will have. It’s a narrative, and it’s found footage – but it also appears as though there will be some interviews with real-life Bigfoot believers as well. We’ll find out soon enough I suppose. READ MORE
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.
When Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America was teased at part of last September’s TIFF, an insanely bloody image appeared on the site that looked like something out of Carrie. While those of us who caught the film knew why the young woman was covered in blood, most of you are still shrouded in a cloud of mystery. It ends today.
Now available on various VOD platforms, Bloody has been provided with a must-see exclusive clip that takes a shotfun to society and leaves the walls covered in red. The thriller also opens in Los Angeles, New York and select cites on Friday, May 11.
“Loveless, jobless and possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and decides to off the stupidest, cruelest and most repellent members of society with an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy, who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. From stand-up comedian and director Bobcat Goldthwait comes a scathing and hilarious attack on all that is sacred in the United States of America.”

Acquired out of the TIFF last September is Bobcat Goldthwait’s unfortunately pretty terrible God Bless America, which Magnolia will launch on video on-demand April 6 with a theatrical run planned for May 11. With the one-sheet released last week, we’ve now landed an age-gated trailer that shares some of the “best of” moments while rocking out to Marilyn Manson’s rendition of “I Put a Spell On You”.
Also written by Goldthwait, the film concerns “Loveless, jobless, possibly terminally ill, Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and offs the stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society. He finds an unusual accomplice: 16-year old Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement.” READ MORE

Two scary! Welcome, fiends. Back for more deadtime stories, hmm? Then settle in with these devious die-monds of die-abolical delight – all 18 uncut (but variously stabbed, electro-volted, haunted, twisted, incarcerated, incarnated, voodoo-ized and even vampirized) episodes from two-riffic Season 2 of Tales from the Crypt! The Cryptkeeper is again your gleefully macabre host for a frightfest of classic E.C. Comics stories involving a for-the-money honey (Demi Moore) hoping for a big, fat inheritance; a cartoonist (Harry Anderson) whose creations come to life (and death); a ventriloquist (Don Rickles) and an idolizing wannabe (Bobcat Goldthwait); and poker players for whom a losing hand could mean exactly that. Ante up for these and more tales. We think you’ll agree they’re absolute monsterpieces.
