Exclusive Trailer: John Portanova’s “VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH”Home,Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
There’s few subgenres that have seen such an unexpected resurgence as the bigfoot horror film, with the prolific one-two punch of Bobcat Goldthwait’s WILLOW CREEK and Eduardo Sanchez’s EXISTS leading the way last year. However, a new contender is throwing their hat in the ring in 2015, with horror collective The October People’s latest eerie outing, VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH. And now, FANGORIA has the exclusive first trailer for John Portanova’s sasquatch scare fare, which you can give a look below!
For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH:
After losing their home following a devastating tragedy, a father and son are forced to move to an old family cabin. Neither reacts well to being thrown into this new world. The son’s attempts to relate to his father are complicated when two old friends arrive for a weekend of hunting. This trip into the forest will unearth not only buried feelings of guilt and betrayal, but also a tribe of Sasquatch that are determined to protect their land.
Despite the horrific takes on the North American legend as of late, there’s been too few to treat the material like the potentially classic creature feature that it could be. It seems Portanova is righting this wrong with VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH, and hopefully, we’ll get a bloody bigfoot extravaganza unlike any other. The film also has some pretty reliable genre talents involved, including GUT’s Jason Vail, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES’ David Saucedo and RESOLUTION’s Bill Oberst Jr. Check back here for more on VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH, and you can see the trailer for the film below.
