“Not a comedic Bigfoot. Not a fake-looking, CG Bigfoot. Not an alien Bigfoot with super human abilities – just the creature I loved – a feature-length PATTERSON-GIMLIN film.” —Eduardo Sanchez on the type of Bigfoot he wanted in his movie
Exists, by director Eduardo Sanchez, is the Bigfoot movie that the film community has been waiting for. It will be screened at this years SXSW 2014 Film festival in March during the coveted midnight showing. Drew McWeeny from HitFix says, “When I attend Toronto, Sundance, and SXSW each year, one of the things I specifically focus on is the midnight programming.”
In Drew McWeeny’s HitFix article, he continues to mention how he looks forward to the screening of Exists, “Another familiar name. Eduardo Sanchez is, of course, best known as the co-creator of “The Blair Witch Project,” but I think he’s made a strong showing in the last few years. “Lovely Molly” is a film that really stuck with me, and I think he’s got a great sense of creepy these days, plus he’s constantly thinking about the role technology plays, not only in how we tell these stories, but in which stories we tell. Plus it sounds like this is a Bigfoot movie, and that’s fine by me.”
