Another “classic” from our old mates at IFS. This is better than their previous outing, Night of the Bloody Apes, but not by much.
The story involves a jaunt organized by Professor Nugent and his students, as they go out to discover the myth of Bigfoot, who is believed to be responsible for a number of mysterious deaths out in the sticks.
The meat of the tale is told in a series of flashbacks, as a local fisherman, a guy on a motorbike and a young couple, who are having a quick ride in a camper van, (Don’t Go In The Woods Alone style) get their gory come-uppance. The fisherman gets his arm ripped out of it’s socket in quite convincing fashion. The couple get a fright as the Demon drags the guy from on top of his lass and smashes his body onto the framework of the camper van, and the motorcyclist gets his knob torn off when he goes for a quick slash. Ouch!
The daughter of the unfortunate fisherman is one of the students, and we learn later, after the group discover a black magic ritual, that the beast actually raped one of the clan – Wanda – who gave birth to a mutation. The end of the film is one of the best in the genre, as the group are stranded in a log-cabin, and are butchered one-by-one in horrific fashion by the Demon.
Here, he stabs one of them with a pitchfork, smashes
another’s head through a pane of glass, and one unfortunate guy gets
whipped with his own entrails! Great stuff.
