Bigfoot vs. Zombies

Bigfoot vs. Zombies (releasing February 23, 2016) seems so obvious, and yet it took this long to pair ’em up in an epic showdown worthy of a pay-per-view.

Bigfoot War

Not so fast – this concept was preconceived by Abandoned Cinema back in 2010 as Bigfoot vs. The Zombies. It was also optioned by maligned German horror/sci-fi director Uwe Boll in 2014 as Bigfoots vs. Zombies. And it’s a theme in Eric S. Brown’s Bigfoot War book series, specifically Bigfoot War: Outbreak (2013). Of course I know all of this. Me ’n BF are BFFs.

Bigfoot vs. Zombies

So how did Bigfoot get dragged into battling the undead when he’s been like Switzerland in the ongoing zombie conflict? Thank science. They created the “toxic cocktail” that leaked into the local population’s water supply (public mud puddles, YMCA bathtubs, gas station restrooms), thereby creating flesh-eating zombies. (Note: The didn’t say anything about fur-eating zombies. Maybe the undead don’t like hair in their food like the rest of us.)

Bigfoot vs. Zombies

So Bigfoot, tired of all this zombie nonsense that keeps interrupting his nature walks, steps in and starts swingin’. My money’s on B. All of this potentially leaves the door wide open for a sequel that has Bigfoot turning into a zombie. They should call it World War B. (That’s now intellectual property, by the way.)

Bigfoot Wars

Once Bigfoot Wars comes out on May 23, 2014 , it’ll change the entire film industry. How do I know this? Several reasons. But first, the plot…

Bigfoot Wars focuses on a small-town sheriff who with the help of a “Dixieland Mafioso” family patriarch sets out to hunt a creature that is widely believed to be a myth. They soon find themselves battling for survival as they discover they aren’t dealing with just one beast, but are at war with many.”

The movie’s title is an ass kick. That is to say it kicks ass. Secondly, they aren’t doing a movie with just one Sasquatch, but lots and lots. My hope is that there are 30 dozen of the iconic cryptid. Even if there’s a mere 100 of ’em, that alone makes Bigfoot Wars the must see movie of the year. And don’t let the fact the C. Thomas Howell, who has been in more SyFy Channel™ movies than me, keep you from seeing it.

Bigfoot Wars, incidentally, is based on the bestselling novels from Eric. S. Brown. I have no idea what the “S” in his middle name stands for. Probably “success.” He’s written more books than a library can hold.

Too bad I can’t read, because with books titled Space Stations and Graveyards, Season of Rot and Zombies II: Inhuman sure sound like quality entertainment. But hey, I can still watch TV with the best of ’em. Some call it a gift.
