Bob Gray’s Bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 24th, 2006

With all of the talk here on Cryptomundo about Bob Gray and his film Bigfoot, news from the Cleveland Plain Dealer today is that the movie is available for download.

That’s right, for only $7.99, you can download the entire movie from Better hurry, as it is on sale, and the price normally is $9.99.

"Bigfoot," written and directed by Mentor native Bob Gray, is a top seller on, said company founder Tom King. 

The firm acquired the rights to "Bigfoot" because the horror movie appeals to the iPod generation – mostly young adult males, King said., which launched three months ago, gets about 10,000 visitors a week to its Web site, he said.

" ‘Bigfoot’ is a fun film," King said. "We get a ton of traffic by people wanting to see the trailer."

The movie portrays Bigfoot as a victim of urban sprawl who fights back against hu mans to defend his ter ritory in the Mentor marshes. Childhood friends Jack Sullivan and Sheriff Bob Perkins must investigate a series of mysterious mutilations and deaths that could be caused only by Bigfoot.

"The amazing thing is, everybody loves it," said Gray, who also plays Sheriff Perkins. At film festivals where it has played, "the crowd goes nuts, like they’re seeing ‘Star Wars’ for the first time."

Everybody? Really?

Gray, 40, moved to Los Angeles in 1989 to pursue acting. He got the idea for "Bigfoot" when he returned to Mentor for his mother’s funeral and visited Mentor Headlands.

When interest from a Hollywood producer fell through, Gray raised money and shot the movie in Mentor for less than $50,000. He moved back to Mentor to do the movie and stayed, working as a free-lance television director and cameraman.

"Bigfoot" is getting raves at indie film festivals, especially for the 7-foot creature. It’s really actor Shawn Kipp in a suit designed by special-effects artist David Greathouse, Gray said.

Gray is working on a "Bigfoot" sequel that he hopes to start filming this year. Turns out there wasn’t just one monster in the marshes, but an entire family. Look for eight Bigfoots in "Bigfoot: The Clan."

"Way more kills. Way more action," Gray promised.

Suddenly, Legend of the Sandsquatch isn’t sounding that bad.

    It is amazing the amount of lame stories that seem to indicate imagination is no longer needed to sell films. UGH Lame stories suck! And this sounds so lame it needs crutches! Won’t waste my time

  2. twblack responds:

    The guy is still a DEADBEAT and deserves nothing but a orange jumpsuit. I will not spend any money to see this movie unless it went to his child he left and never seen or paid support for. And yes I am a VERY STRONG FAMILY PERSON! No not perfect but love my wife and kids! People like him well I could say what I really wanted to and you would ban me from the site for the words I would use. Sorry guys just the way I feel about these type of people.

  3. Sky King responds:

    Geez, guys! Tell us what you REALLY think!

    I’m sure Mr. Gray is heartbroken you hate him and his film you never will see….

  4. fredfacker responds:

    This reminds me of one of our local cover bands. They sing so off-key they can empty a bar in under half an hour, but all their fliers, websites, etc. say, “… called the best cover band in Houston!”

    I seriously doubt anyone’s raving over this stuff. Interview someone other than the director and you might get the real story.

  5. Bob Grays Ex responds:

    Bob Gray pleaded guilty of being a deadbeat dad & will be sentenced Aug. 9-See Cleveland Scene First Punch -Aug 2

  6. Craig Woolheater responds:

    For those that are interested, the details of the sentencing were reported on in the Canton Repository.
