The “Sasquatch” film genre, devoted to the legendary and notoriously elusive creature also known as Bigfoot, and its Himalayan counterpart, the Yeti, is the focus of this illustrated reference guide. Here is a fascinatingly detailed look at the cinematic history of Sasquatch, from the earliest trick films of Georges Melies to the most up-to-date CGI efforts.
Critical insights regarding the genre’s development are offered, along with an exhaustively researched filmography that includes every known film or television appearance of Sasquatch, Bigfoot and Yeti in both fictitious and documentary formats.
Included are in-depth interviews with such filmmakers as Kevin Tenney, Adam Muto, Ryan Schifrin, Tim Skousen and Michael Worth, as well as reproductions of rare movie stills, posters, lobby cards and behind-the-scenes production photos.
Renowned cryptozoologist Loren Coleman provides an insightful foreword to the text.
“It becomes clear the author has left no stone unturned. The detailed, meticulous nature of the author… has produced a winner with an original reference work… the serious student of the subject should eventually aquire this important contribution to Bigfooting, as it is presently peerless… The films in this work is so exhaustively researched in The Bigfoot Filmography, the detail so insightful, one can only give this book two thumbs up.”
— Daniel Perez, editor of The Bigfoot Times and author of Bigfoot At Bluff Creek.
“Bigfoot can add one more feather to his pimp hat. With the release of The Bigfoot Filmography, an exhaustive 344 page turning compendium of every fictional and documentary appearances of the Hairy One in film and television (or “TV”), the total amount of books on the subject of Sasquatch now breaches 200. Only Dracula and arguably Flipper, the talking and spraying dolphin, are even in the lobby of such lofty stats.”
~ Jeff Gilbert, Drinkin’ Drive-In, “The History of Bigfoot”
“This must clearly be regarded now as the most significant book ever authored on the genre of Bigfoot/Sasquatch and Abominable Snowmen/Yeti films! This takes us far beyond Snowbeast and Harry and the Hendersons into the great archives of motion pictures and documentaries known and nearly unknown on hairy hominoids.”
— Loren Coleman, Cryptomundo
