Suburban Sasquatch: Collector’s Edition

Suburban Sasquatch is what happens when a nubile Native American on her vision quest, a budding reporter, and some dimwitted cops join forces in order to stop the rampage of a bloodthirsty bigfoot in a local park. Suburban Sasquatch is completely ridiculous, over the top, and so unbelievably awesome in almost every way that I absolutely adore what director David Wascavage has done here. Talk about gonzo greatness!

"Hilarious in performance and in function"

You know that opening in 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which a group of primates are inspired to beat the shit out of each other thanks to the presence of a black monolith? Well, it ends with one of the most important match-cuts of all time. The one where the bone becomes a spaceship or satellite of somesort. Well, Suburban Sasquatch doesn’t reach the same heights in film history, but this cheapo-depot effort - one of the best known shot-on-video features - does open with a primate beating the bones out of a passerby as the behemoth continues its walk into the forest.

You read that correctly. Bigfoot beats a man so hard the bones fly right on out of him. The plastic bones are hurled into the air and with a slow-motion glide to their aerial assault, fall with an unexpected grace as the victims of the hairy beast scream in horror. With outrageous effects like this, it’s little wonder so many cult connoisseurs of video flicks know about this laugh-a-minute creature feature. Bigfoot’s coming to get ya!Suburban Sasquatch: Collector’s Edition

Or at least the man in the suit will. And now, thanks to Visual Vengeance’s new HD transfer from the original videotape, Suburban Sasquatch makes its arrival on blu-ray. To say that this riot is a total blast from beginning to end is an understatement. Suburban Sasquatch is everything you want a D-grade SOV film to be. It is full of amateur performances, single shot takes, and a man in a suit rampaging like a loon through the forest.

Hilarious in performance and in function, Suburban Sasquatch is a shot-on-video film in which Bigfoot, you know and love him, goes on a killing spree thanks to the encroachment of suburbia onto his property. The wilderness is his territory and when more and more of the civilized world edges onto his doman, he becomes infuriated, wildly attacking everyone and everything standing (or running) in his way.

Visual Vengeance, the boutique sister label of genre distributor Wild Eye Releasing, proudly presents this madness on blu-ray on Aug 23! Get your copy now and go squatchin’ until your heart pops!

He’s out of the woods and in your neighborhood! Perhaps the most beloved and recognizable shot on video movie of the last two decades! When a giant blood-thirsty Bigfoot goes on a killing spree in a sprawling suburban park area, it's up to a couple of park rangers, a reporter and a mystical Native-American Warrior to try and stop Sasquatch's limb-ripping rampage. Now for the first time ever on Blu-ray and packed with bonus features.


Come on, now. Don’t expect miracles here. Presented by Visual Vengeance, the 1.33:1 full screen image is as pretty shitty as you can imagine. Colors are never bright. The contrast is never clear and the picture is one big ball of fuzzed out pixels. Nothing is crisp and the black levels bleed like the fake blood flicked at the screen in all the death scenes. It’s transferred from an archival 2004 SD master which is the best source material available for a film of this type.


The sound is presented in an effective Dolby Digital Mono soundtrack.
