Willow Creek is Blair Witch rip-off but instead of demons and witch, it deals with Big Foot. However, it is still very entertaining movie. I was surprised to find out with was directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. I’ve know Bobcat as comedian from 80’s but I never knew he directed movie. He did good job.
The story is pretty simple. A couple, Jim and Kelly are visiting the infamous Willow Creek, the alleged home of the original Bigfoot legend. Jim is obsessed with Bigfoot creature and Kelly goes along for the ride to keep Jim happy. Without giving away too much, Jim and Kelly’s adventure turned into nightmare very quickly.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
The willow creek is shot in found-footage style and it is so much like Blair Witch with all the shaky camera. If you are looking for CGI monsters and gore, you are looking at a wrong movie. Just like Blair Witch, it plays with your mind. The movie doesn’t reveal lots of things, and the ending is very ambiguous. But if you pay attention to the movie, you know exactly what is going on, and it is terrifying.
Acting and Directing
Good acting work by two main actors played by Alexie Gilmore and Bryce Johnson . Like I mentioned before, Willow Creek is written and directed by former comedian Bobcat Goldthwait.
Spoiler Ending (Spoiler Warning!!)
Obviously, the movie is about bigfoot. The bigfoot started to terrorize them and ended up killing the boyfriend, Jim. The girlfriend, Kelly, fight to survive until the end but she also ended up getting captured by the bigfoot. At the end, we see her getting dragged by the bigfoot to its home base. There we see quick glimpse of over-weight lady who seems to be a human at the bigfoot’s home. The movie indicates that the bigfoot kidnaps human girls to reproduce. Early in the movie, when Jim and Kelly was at the bar near Willow Creek, we see many of missing person posters on the wall of women. We can assumed that these missing women were kidnapped by the bigfoot to repopulate. We can also assumed that the girl friend is kidnapped by bigfoot to repopulate.
I give 4 out of 5 star. It is not perfect but very entertaining.
