All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Seen it before? Sure you have. And this horror flick has exactly nothing new to say, or add, to that threadbare horror cliché.

November 1, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

This found-footage horror film about the search for Sasquatch is the latest tired entry in an overworked genre.

October 19, 2012 | Full Review…

The long and inglorious list of Bigfoot movies just got longer and more inglorious.

October 19, 2012

"Bigfoot" wanders straight into every tired trope and trap of the conceit.

October 19, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

What it lacks in scares, it makes up for in sheer competence - which frankly is more than can be said about a lot of its ilk.

January 9, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A chilling, unnerving and psychologically horrifying experience.

Audience Reviews for Big Foot: The Lost Coast Tapes

slow, makes you think something epic is coming up, like most films these days do, but nothing happens. just a run around found footage film with nothing worth watching.

Like found footage movies, love Bigfoot. In The Lost Coast Tapes a TV journalist decides to give a man $75,000 to see a Bigfoot corpse and prove it's a fake. Quite why he thinks making yet another show proving Bigfoot is a fake is worth his life savings is anyone's guess. They get out to the woods and of course start to hear noises and see trees rustling. It plays its found footage premise pretty well. There are no real contradictions in sound or shots, however the cast try far too hard to be quick and witty. The dialogue is also constantly riddled with references to the show they are making. The obsession of Sean, the lead. Is enough to convince us that they would continue to keep the cameras rolling, as he is in fear of being made to look the fool at the hands of someone's prank. Unfortunately, towards the end, the film adds a very interesting spin to the Bigfoot myth, but fails to elaborate on it. This wouldn't be so bad, bu it brings it in in the last few minutes and seems to use it at an excuse to not show anything. I'm all for leaving some things to the imagination, but sometimes a film's ideas do warrant further exploration. Up until the end you can kind of guess everything that happens, and apart from the actual violence all of these things can be seen in a show like Finding Bigfoot, which is a lot more fun because it tries so hard to convince you of what's real. Not the worst found footage film or Sasquatch film, but that isn't saying much.
