The SciFi Channel has cranked out its share of stinkers. There's no arguing that, but "Sasquatch" has got to be the worst of the bunch. Starring Lance Henriksen and Andrea Roth, this story follows the crusade of a rescue team in search of Henriksen's daughter and a device that can prove the existence of Bigfoot. The plane went down in the Pacific Northwest and along the way happens to really tick off a Sasquatch. I'm not going to tell you why, but you can read other reviews for the spoilers. Henriksen heads up the ragtag bunch of typical horror movie fodder. There's the hotshot who knows everything, the geek, the girl who gets naked at the most unlikely time, and the deceptive villain out for personal gain. One by one they are picked off by the Sasquatch and they don't know why. Just rest assured that 'Squatch's reasons are soon revealed and everything comes to a head when ol' Bigfoot and Henriksen faceoff in a battle to the death!
Honestly, this flick is just flat out boring. Henriksen, who seems to relish in doing bad flicks like this, doesn't even seem to have a spark in this movie. His character is just as dull and unimportant as the rest of the gang in the flick. As far as special effects go, this picture is pretty sparse. Sasquatch looks like Cousin It's relative who failed at the hairstyling academy. The direction is choppy at best and the dialogue is horrendous.
I usually like bad SciFi films, but I have to say that this B-movie is perhaps one of the worst B-movies I've ever seen.
Only recommended to very loyal Sasquatch and SciFi channel fans.
SASQUATCH Admit it that you are intrigued by the legend of Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yetti/Abominable Snowman/what ever you want to call him, admit it young one. I have always stopped on a channel like Sci-Fi or Discovery or Unsolved Mysteries when this kind of stuff came on. Something about these legends has always interested me and so I thought this would be a good purchase, come on Lance Henriksen is in this. It turns out that this is not one of the … more
I would say this is worth a rental for any one interested in this kind of film, but other then that one may not like this. There is a sequel [Sasquatch Hunters] to this, which while not as good in story is at least interesting through out. If done right this film could have been great, you can tell what they were trying for with barley showing the Sasquatch. If done right that could have built the tension up great.
Despite looking extremely cool, I have to admit that I'm a dork. I grew up on the outskirts of the small town of Oberlin, LA. I have since relocated to the Lake Charles, LA area.I love my home state … more
