Guide Review - 'Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes' DVD Review
When they arrive, they find Drybeck holed up in a remote cabin in the woods surrounded by an electrified fence. They stay the night, during which they encounter evidence of Sasquatch activity -- strange noises, scratches on the door, fallen trees -- but not enough to convince Sean. As the creatures' aggressiveness increases, however, he's forced to come to terms with his disbelief in the supernatural, but at the cost of how many lives?
While most "found footage" films seem concerned with ghosts and demons, Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes's focus on tactile, "real world" creatures is refreshing, even though it doesn't make for a particularly scary experience. The barely visible creatures aren't effectively utilized, their growling sounds far creepier than the fleeting images of them casually strolling through the backgrounds of several shots. The script tries to make up for the lack of Bigfoot action by adding an intriguing twist ending, but unfortunately, it doesn't make much sense and ends up raising more questions than it answers.
