About the Movie
A young couple find themselves face-to-face against a terrifying evil when they venture into the heart of Bigfoot country in WILLOW CREEK, director Bobcat Goldthwait’s (God Bless America, World’s Greatest Dad) unique spin on the horror genre. Looking to make a splash online with his research videos into the existence of Bigfoot, Jim (Bryce Johnson, Pretty Little Liars) and his girlfriend Kelly take a camping trip to the small town of Willow Creek, California, and the surrounding mountains where the infamous footage of the supposed sasquatch was filmed. But before long the headstrong couple gets lost in the woods and discovers that someone – or something – is stalking them. With each night bringing with it unknowable dangers, the two must now use all of their cunning to try to make it out of the forest alive.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Goldthwait gives us lovely, buttery daylight scenes, nicely relaxed leads and dialogue that pays attention to fluctuating gender dynamics.
Fresh: Bobcat Goldthwait's effective yet wholly unnecessary contribution to the genre of horror movies allegedly recovered from the hard drives of dead cameramen.
Fresh: A found-footage horror cheapie that turns out to be its creator's warmest, most satisfying work.
Fresh: The parts are greater than the whole, but there's a lot to like here, including the easy interplay between the leads.
Boring, slow and lame…. As expected.
The first thing you will notice about this film is how unlikeable the main characters are; the girl talks too much and is annoying as hell, and the guy is just outright insufferable. The movie plods along at a snails pace, with nothing interesting occurring until the final 1/3 of the film (and for a movie that is little over an hour, this is not a compliment). When things do happen, the camera is solely focused on the couple, with the girl screaming and being annoying while the man whimpers. Fortunately, it ends, and you aren’t really sure what you watched, what happened, and why you wasted the time to watch it. Just a straight up disappointment of the highest calibre. This movie is literally watching two people camping. That.is.it. Do not make the same mistake I did.
So mad at Tomatometer ratings crap!
I never get upset about renting a bad movie cuz it was my choice, however, all these national "grand" newspaper critics that said this was such a good movie lied their
a??ses off. This movie sucked so bad. I've seen D movies better than this. I will never again trust New York Times, Variety, Rolling Stones etc. critics. This movie was so boring I quit watching about 5 mins from end. A kid could watch this it had so little story to it and they would get bored. Sucked Big Red Tomatoes!
Really critics?? Really?
First off, we have a film starring two idiots with nothing going for them so we have little to care about. But to make matters worse (SPOILERS) they go into a secluded wilderness without any weapons, a map or GPS. They’re looking for what is basically a wild, dangerous animal and they didn’t bother to bring a shotgun? A hunting knife? An ax? No one would be that stupid. This is just another ridiculous Hollywood horror mess where the main characters’ stupidity is the plot point that drives the story. I can’t believe the critics gave this moronic mess such high praise.
