First Contact: The X Species

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 16th, 2011

Cryptomundian sasquatch tipped us off to thisfilm project.


Deep in the mountains of southwestern Colorado, an elite archaeological expedition is on the verge of a historic discovery. Led by Archaeologist Dr. Sarah Parker, the group uncovers the site of famed 1930’s Primatologist Bernard Greenwell. Examining Greenwell’s notes, Dr. Parker and her team are led to a prehistoric hominid burial site. As the expedition moves forward and press generating evidence is discovered, opposing agendas and interpersonal conflicts arise and the delicate core of unity among the group quickly unravels. When the team’s camp is mysteriously ransacked they find themselves with few defenses against the elements and even fewer resources. Casualties escalate and fear becomes an inevitable descent into insanity as they try to find their way out of the woods. Their fight to survive gives way to fear; for in even these most inhumane of circumstances the real terror has yet to begin. For on these ancient grounds men become prey…

Tales of its legend has inspired fear in every known culture to humankind. Modern scholars have debated its existence for decades. Documented sightings have been recorded throughout history.

In 2011, it finds us…

    Not bad.

    Not bad. The people who made this short film were smart to show the bigfoot creature at nighttime: It would look far more fake in daytime. Nevertheless for a shortfilm it was a good suit. This is in the tradition of The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield. I don’t like the cussing in it, but this was a good job. Hat’s off to those who made it.

    I have to admit that this looks pretty good. I am a self described enthusiast so I guess I’m also a sucker for it, but as these kinds of pseudo-reality efforts go, this one handled its subject matter pretty well. Looks like the production on site might have been a lot of fun too! Cheers
