Short Film: ‘Eaglewalk’ Turns Bigfoot Into Jason Vorhees


Why Watch? I have no idea why anyone would want to fuck with Bigfoot. I also have no idea why anyone would want to re-open a dilapidated camp where Bigfoot tore the guts out of some children. It’s almost as boldly silly as making yet another slasher movie, but writer/director Rob Himebaugh pulls it off with some cool creature effects, editing smarts and some regulation camp short shorts.

Not to mention a breathtaking location.

It’s got a whiff of man-ape cheese to it, but overall it’s a nice bit of throwback work where teens think relationship woes are huge until they glimpse the 8-foot-tall beast at the other end of the shower stalls.

If you like it, the crew is trying to make a prequel and looking for some crowdfunding love.

What Will It Cost? About 30 minutes.
