Unfortunately, "Clawed" doesn't measure up to the standards set by SciFi. If you frequent that particular channel on the weekends, you've received a heaping helpin' of some pretty cheesy movies. "Clawed" isn't even bad enough to be fun. It's got plenty of stiff acting, poor cutaways to new scenes, a really bad Bigfoot costume, and not much of anything else. Heck, the language isn't that rough for an "R"-rated flick such as this one. There's one brief bit of nudity that wasn't even necessary to the movie. Also, the "creature violence" referenced in the rating is almost non-existent. Sure, we see a few guts here and there, and a bear with half of its face peeled off, but we never actually get to see the Bigfoot do anything. Everything we view is done after the fact.
Another thing that ticked me off about this flick is the fact that the creature only kills folks that no one really likes. He stumbles around the woods, spooks a few innocent teens, and then hurries back to the poacher camp to take them out one at a time. In short, this Bigfoot is waaaaay too nice to be a bad guy.
Poor editing, acting and action make for a poor "horror" flick. Two stars go to the wonderfully green scenery that is Echo mountain in this film. If you're a fan of Sasquatch, the movie version or the legend, stay as far away from this flick as you can. Heck, check out "Sasquatch" with Lance Henriksen if you want a moderately better film. It's not much better than this film, but it does have quite a bit more action and better acting. Other than that, the Bigfoot flicks are still some of the worst ones around.
