SyFy Bigfoot Movie News Heats Up

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 20th, 2012

News of another perhaps forgettable or funny hairy hominoid movie on the horizon got put on a front burner this week via the Detroit Press article, “Five questions with Sherilyn Fenn, former ‘Twin Peaks’ star.”

Q: I know that longtime fans will be excited to see that you have a new Syfy movie, “Bigfoot,” coming out this year.
A: Oh my God! “Bigfoot” is so silly and fun, and I don’t even know what to think of it.
Alice Cooper is in it! When my parents split up, my dad became his road manager, so he actually used to babysit for me when I was a kid. Crazy!

Earlier in the year, Inside TV shared this:

The network’s upcoming Bigfoot — which already stars the previously announced power team of Danny Bonaduce (The Partridge Family) and Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch) — is adding the following actors: Howard Hesseman (Head of the Class), Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks), Andre Royo (The Wire), and rock legend Alice Cooper (School’s Out). Bruce Davidson is directing.

The story: When Bigfoot is discovered in South Dakota, two life-long rivals (Williams and Bonaduce) battle to capture the creature — one to exploit it and one to save it.

People are having fun with the Partridge Family x The Brady Bunch overlap.

    The more I read about the storyline and the cast, the more I realize it has a 99% chance of stinking to high heaven. It’s almost cliche to say that SyFy movies aren’t that good to begin with, but the screens and commentary make this sound like one to miss. It reminds me of that other abysmal movie “Yeti”. I believe that was also SyFy.

  2. Champ Voucher responds:

    I hope they all have better luck with the Sy-Fy Bigfoot than Lance Henriksen did.
    I think he is the only actor in cimematic history to be killed by Bigfoot in more than one movie.

  3. Fausta responds:

    I always liked that movie “Snow Beast” from 1977. I remember staying up to watch it as a kid. It was so cheesy but likeable in some way.
    I think they redid it in 2011 but I haven’t seen it or heard anything about it.

  4. Ulysses responds:

    Bwaa, haa, ha ! Sounds like a real corker. Sci Fi next time bring the WHOLE cast from any classic sit com and watch the ratings !

  5. red_pill_junkie responds:

    When is SyFy making Bigfoot VS Nessie? 😉
