While visiting a pot farm in Northern California in 1993, investigative journalist David Holthouse heard a story that still haunts him: On a nearby farm three men were torn limb from limb in a savage Bigfootattack. SASQUATCH follows David as he revisits the Redwoods 25 years later, in search of any evidence that might lead to the truth of what happened that night. As he pulls at the threads of this story, he’ll be taken down a path that’s far more terrifying than anyone would have imagined.
Sasquatch was one of my favorite things to come out of SXSW this year, now I finally get to talk about how dark and intriguing it got to be as you think you’re embarking on a journey to find Bigfoot, then you find out it’s a true crime story that wants you wanting more and more, and then some!
Produced by the fabulous Duplass brothers, you can automatically tee up a home run whenever you see their names as producers on any entertainment. After a while I thought this true crime perspective may be get tedious and repetitive after a while.
What David Holthouse does here is Emmy worthy, and this will get instant gratification from the horror community that wants a great series around Bigfoot that we’ve truly never got to begin with. This is perfect for those that are intrigued by Bigfoot and also loved true crime series.
Overall grade: 5/5 stars
