In honour of our upcoming Cinemacabre Movie Night screening of the crazy Canadian-Italian co-produced creature feature Yeti: The Giant of the 20th Century (featuring a talk from The Black Museum‘s Paul Corupe), Rue Morgue‘s resident cryptozoologist/Ghoultown frontman Lyle Blackburn has pulled together a list of the five weirdest moments in Bigfoot film history.
5. Boggy Creek II: And the Legend Continues (1985)
The moment when we first see Dr. Lockhart (played by director Charles B. Pierce) in his cutoff jean shorts. Not only is it creepy, it clashes with the Flashdance-influenced fashion of the female co-stars.
4. The Capture of Bigfoot (1979)
A young boy has a touching moment with an abominable snowman. Sure it’s heart-warming, but it leaves me with a funny feeling. Thanks to Troma, the entire movie is available online.
3. Bigfoot (1970)
A female bigfoot taunts two bikini-clad babes tied to stakes in the middle of the woods. It’s like Beach Blanket Bingo meets Land of the Lost.
2. Suburban Sasquatch (2004)
A bow-wielding, Power Ranger chick shoots bigfoot with a magic arrow. Or maybe it’s when the extremely fake CGI crows attack the bigfoot and then he disappears into thin air. It’s so hard to decide with this gem of sasquatchery!
1. Shriek of the Mutilated (1974)
When a movie begins with a person in a yeti mask chopping off someone’s head with an ax, you know you’re in for a weird ride. It only gets more bizarre from there!
Don’t miss out on the the ghastly and infamous yeti nipple arousal scene and many more bonked-out bigfoot moments at Rue Morgue’s Cinemacabre Movie Night screening of Yeti: The Giant of the 20th Century at the TIFF Bell Lightbox on Thursday, June 27 at 9 p.m.
