Plot Summary
After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When one of his new neighbors, Karen (Ashley Hartman), is attacked by a gigantic ape-like beast, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police -- and even his personal nurse, Otis Wilhelm (Christien Tinsley) -- dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself.

  • The movie, which opened last week in Seattle and opens Friday in Los Angeles, isn't so much getting a release as an escape. The movie is directed, shot, acted and outfitted with special effects -- such as that guy (Michael Deak) in the monster suit -- so as to make American International horror films of the late '50s and '60s look like sophisticated gems. show more

  • Ryan Schifrin's first film is a pleasant surprise, an old-fashioned monster movie that relies more on genuine suspense than bare breasts and blood. show more

  • Ever wondered what the bastard stepchild of "Rear Window" and "Harry and the Hendersons" would look like? Probably not. Nevertheless, here it is in the form of a Bigfoot horror flick gone horribly awry. show more
