China’s Chinese Bigfoot

China Bigfoot: The Legend of the Yeren

I’m always down for a new home movie/found footage/blockbuster about Bigfoot, but my fur stands on edge when they can’t even get the advertising one-sheet right.

Take China Bigfoot: Legend of the Yeren (2015), a family-friendly take on our woodsy BFF. That’s the title according to the movie’s Facebook page and press release. So why does the movie poster say Chinese Bigfoot: The Legend of the Yeren? It’s total B.S. like this that just ruin my life and everything I may or may not stand for.

The Yeren is also known as “Wild Man.” I know a lot of drinking buddies who go by the same name, usually around last call. Often seen in the Taibai Mountains, Yeren is to China what Bigfoot is to the Pacific Northwest, except Yeren is alleged to be a red head. That seems weird to me.

Anyway, here’s what goes down in China/Chinese Bigfoot: The Legend of the Yeren: “Chinese teenager Shi Kang and his American tutor, Denise, crash land in the remote mountains of China. After being rescued from the plane wreckage by a giant, ape-like creature, they eventually befriend the mysterious Yeren. But a group of poachers are hot on the Yeren’s trail, and now it’s up to Shi Kang and Denise to help protect their new friend.”

Man, I freakin’ hope Shi Kang and Denise thwart those a-hole poachers and send Yeren on his merry way. That MIGHT make me forget about the filmmaker’s inability to pick a lane for the title and drive in it.

  1. China Bigfoot?
    Is there a Crystal Bigfoot for a sequel?
    Or an upcoming Melmac Bigfoot movie?

    Hmm, the Yeren is a redhead Bigfoot? Kinda looks like my third ex-wife. Nah. The facial hair is all wrong. Louise had more.
