Fantastic Fest quick pick

The Wild Man of the Navidad — A Texas horror movie through and through, this redneck thriller vivifies an old Lone Star legend about a Bigfoot-like monster stomping through the backwoods and terrorizing folks. Cast with a fun, fond drive-in vibe, this low-budget shocker’s filled with shotguns and sheriffs and Southern gothic weirdos. It was co-produced by Kim Henkel, co-writer of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a palpable influence on the movie. Directors Duane Graves and Justin Meeks and members of the cast will conduct a Q&A after the film. (11:45 p.m. local time Sunday and 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Alamo South)

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969.

Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.

    That is one freaky looking monster. Good thing that Sasquatch don’t really look like that or I am guessing there would only be a few people out there looking for this creature.

  2. cliffhanger042002 responds:

    Wow, I bet that creature would give Sasquatch nightmares. No wonder sas stays hidden, afraid to come out and run in to that horrid thing!!
