Something in the Woods Movie

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on October 30th, 2014

There’s been a horde of bigfoot films lately, of which I’ve seen many (and reviewed in Rue Morgue magazine). Most are terrible and a few are good. Many of the terrible ones try to exploit the fame/name of The Legend of Boggy Creek or imitate it, or flat out take footage and paste it into their “movie.” I recently got a sneak peak at 7 minutes worth of an upcoming bigfoot-themed flick called Something in the Woods.

“Willow Creek” Movie Review

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on August 13th, 2014

Many folks have asked what I thought about Bobcat Goldthwait’s new Bigfoot movie, WILLOW CREEK. I was lucky enough to attend a screening with Bobcat himself and more recently view a screener of the released film. Rue Morgue magazine has kindly allowed me to reprint my review (which appeared in their July issue) for Cryptomundo.

The Secret of Blackjack Woods

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on May 31st, 2014

I don’t often read fiction, but occasionally a book comes across my path that beckons me to put aside scholarly texts and enjoy a good story. Case in point, The Secret of Blackjack Woods, the debut novel by Ashlen Brown. I recently met the Texas-based author at a cryptozoology event where I picked up a copy. Having no prior knowledge of her book, I was initially drawn in by its mysterious title and cover – which seems to hint at a Bigfoot story – and after a brief conversation with Brown I learned that indeed the impetus for her novel had come from an incident in which her mother and sister sighted a mysterious creature near their family home in Texas. This led to speculation that it could have been a Bigfoot which later inspired Brown to write her heart-felt and downright exciting novel.

As most know, I’m a huge fan of The Legend of Boggy Creek. I’ve written a book on the subject, collected relics from the film and Fouke area, and lectured about Fouke Monster history at events across the country. So when I came across the opportunity to make The Legend of Boggy Creek movie poster come to life, so to speak, I jumped at the chance.

Dead Bigfoot: A True Story Reviewed

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on December 23rd, 2013

If you follow bigfoot research, you’ve no doubt heard the controversial name of Justin Smeja. Smeja is, of course, the bear hunter who claims to have shot and killed a juvenile sasquatch in the Sierra mountains in 2010. Since coming forward, his story has been widely spread on the internet (through both interviews and a small documentary), and lately featured in several television shows including Bigfoot: The New Evidence. The DNA evidence has been analyzed, but still the question remains: did Smeja actually kill a bigfoot?

These type of stories tend to polarize the bigfoot community as researchers struggle to sort out the truth. In an effort to do just that, bigfoot researcher and independent filmmaker, Ro Sahebi, in association with The Sierras Evidence Initiative, has created a new feature documentary titled Dead Bigfoot: A True Story. In the doc, Sahebi interviews the witnesses, initiates a polygraph test, and takes a look at the various shreds of evidence that have thus far been presented.
