Bobcat Goldthwait Talks about Bigfoot and Religion
Bobcat has been teasing about a Bigfoot movie since at least 2009. (Read: Bobcat Goldthwait Spends 3 Days Looking for Bigfoot). According to Dread Central the movie is complete and in the can. It seems the Bigfoot genre of filmmaking will continue to be tied to the found footage format.
The next film in the found footage sub-genre pertaining to Bigfoot is coming at us via comedian turned filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait, and we’ve got the early details on this latest sliver of Sasquatchploitation right here. Dig it!
Bleeding Cool is reporting that Goldthwait has shot and completed his next movie entitled Willow Creek, and it is a cinéma vérité-style flick about Bigfoot. Not the truck either because that would be just weird. We’re talking the big hairy guy who’s lived in various forms of myth and legend now for decades.
The site adds that this project isn’t a schlocky horror picture and that Goldthwait has apparently mixed satire with some suspense, and overall his film is apparently rather driven by “exploring the idea of bearing witness.” They go on to report that there are various characters in the film who believe they’ve seen the elusive Sasquatch and give differing accounts, going so far as to even fight over them. Goldthwait is said to use this kind of tension to get in some observations on faith and religion.
Stay tuned and keep on Squatchin’!

This is not the first time Bobcat has gone on record with his fascination with Bigfoot. While promoting his movie World’s Greatest Dad in 2009 he did several interviews about the possibility of his Bigfoot Movie. Read excerpts from these interviews at Bigfoot Lunch Club.
