I started out with In Search Of (4.28.77). It actually made my head hurt. There was a hunter, and he'd decided to hunt the bigfoot with a camera- but there was a bigfoot scholar who wouldn't take anything less than an actual body- living or otherwise, he'd be ok with a corpse. Apparently science was different in the seventies.
It's really, really bad. Bigfoots are kidnapping women to breed.
John Carradine plays a huckster, trapper while Christopher Mitchum plays the boyfriend of one of the captured women.
The more I watched, the worse it got.
The bigfoots were ape costumes. Not modified ape costumes, but just ape costumes.
It does, however, have the best wikipedia entry ever.
I had to clear my palate after watching that, but not by much, so I gave Creature from Black Lake(76) a try. I've had good luck with other movies whose titles include the words "creature", "from", and "black."
Yeah. It didn't work.
How bad is it? It doesn't have a wikipedia entry, it's that bad.
Granted, I should have known, just looking at the first few minutes that these would have been stinkers.
I think I'm going to watch a couple of chapters of The Crimson Ghost to make the pain go away.
