Sasquatch (2021)

Post by Flack »

In 1993, 23-year-old David Holthouse was working at a cannabis farm in Mendocino County (northern California) one night when a couple of terrified workers arrived at his camp. According to the workers, a large crop had been destroyed and three of the camp's Mexican workers had been murdered. More than murdered -- "ripped apart." The panicked men were convinced that the murders had been killed by Bigfoot.

Holthouse has led an interesting life. He left the cannabis growing business and went on to become a writer, a reporter, and an investigative journalist. Holthouse rose to fame with his article "Stalking the Bogeyman," about tracking down, planning to murder, and eventually confronting the (now) man who raped him when he was seven years old. He's done lots of undercover and expose writing, but that night where two men swore Bigfoot had killed three immigrants haunts him to this day.

And thus, the adventure begins.

Sasquatch is a mini-docuseries that consists of three 45-minute episodes. The first episode is mostly about Bigfoot and the second delves into the war on drugs that took place in the 1980s. Throughout these stories, Holthouse works his way back to that night in 1993. He quickly learns it's tough to solve murders of illegal aliens that were never reported to the police, and unsurprisingly, many of the locals, whether they work for the local drug cartel or simply live in fear of them, are hesitant to share much information.

Despite the seemingly ridiculous premise that Bigfoot murdered three people, Holthouse treats the subject matter with respect and performs due diligence. Not only does he talk to locals involved in the drug trade, but Bigfoot experts as well. His hard work does pay off and the series ends with a bone-chilling resolution.

As enjoyable as it is dark. Worth the 2+ hour investment.

If you get a chance, watch "Suburban Sasquatch." It's one of the best movies ever made.

Why would they be panicked if Bigfoot had killed the murderers? I would think they would only be scared if they thought the murders were committed by Bigfoot, or if the men had been killed by Bigfoot.</pedantic>

And why would they think a tire had killed them? "Big Foot" is/was a brand of tire sold by Goodyear, IIRC.

Bigfoot was also a pizza sold by Pizza Hut. What's the worst that could happen from eating too much pizza, Paul?

Tonight on "When Pizzas Attack:" Killer Indigestion: When Bromo Seltzer isn't enough. But our first segment, when massive pizza consumption leas to massive diarrhea. We call it: Montezuma's sausage, cheese, pepperoni, onions, mushrooms, peppers, pineapple, jalapeño , hanburger, ham, bacon, peanut butter, and jelly, revenge.
