James Baack has really struck a nerve with his 3D monster flick "The Bloody Rage of Bigfoot." The monster movie fans are blazing up his e-mail wanting to know more about the film, while actual Bigfoot researchers have been less than friendly. Though the reaction has been mixed, Baack is just siting back and enjoying the ride.
The director explains, "I cannot believe the e-mails that I've been receiving since the teaser trailer went live. It's hilarious! All these fanboys are asking when it's coming out and I'm also receiving nasty grams from Bigfoot research organizations and study groups! I LOVE IT!"
Although Bigfoot can't be seen in that teaser trailer, the images that are shown, were a bit confusing. A pissed off clown, scared kids, fireworks......not what was expected.
After I voiced my confusion over the trailer, James Baack posted this explanation, "This movie: "The Bloody Rage of Bigfoot" will be unlike anything you have ever seen before. It does not follow any traditional formula used in any prior horror film. The story is told through the eyes of a psychotic and deranged person in a clown suit that calls himself Puss-E. He is befriended by an evil witch that conjures up a horrific demon that later does battle with Bigfoot in a automotive junkyard during a thunderstorm. The film contains tons of blood, explosions, and action. The scene in the trailer with the two people wearing gorilla suits ARE NOT BIGFOOT. That will all be explained. I guarantee that everyone will enjoy this film once completed."
After reading that, I was more than a little relieved. I was under the impression that Bigfoot was going to be nothing more than a guy in a cheap gorilla suite running around scaring old ladies and grade school kids.
Baack explains further, '"Great Lakes Artists Group" promises to deliver a film unlike any other before in it's genre.We will release a film to audiences that will be defined as the purest form of Horror. It will contain nightmarish images combined with a story that leans towards the bizarre and disturbing. We refuse to fall into a category of film that has been shown to fans numerous times over and over. This will NOT be attired mad slasher movie or zombie flick.We like to think that our audience is just as intelligent as we are and will bring to the table a new staple in horror that will set the standards for future horror films to come.I think that fandom has grown tired of the same old formula over and over.Our mission is to present a film that will get into your mind and find out whats going on in there.We will NOT let you down!"
Looks like we are all in for one hell of a ride with this one!
