The Capture of Bigfoot

The Capture of Bigfoot is a 1979 horror film from Bill Rebane, the director of Monster A-Go-Go. The plot revolves around a man trying to catch a bigfoot. It was distributed by Troma Entertainment.

In his book All I Need to Know about Filmmaking I Learned from the Toxic Avenger, Troma president Lloyd Kaufman lists this film as one of the five worst Troma films ever distributed (along with Croaked: Frog Monster from Hell, also directed by Bill Rebane). Shot in Gleason, Wisconsin, the film’s closing credits attribute “wardrobe” to Kmart. Jeana TomasinoPlayboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month in November 1980, is credited as a dancer in this film.

‘ …Rebane shows some improvement here as a filmmaker in the four years since Rana. His point-and-shoot filming style is still pointy and shooty, but at least he chooses better angles from which to point and shoot. The acting is largely community theater level, but that’s better than grade school theater level. The monster costumes are unimpressive, but not laughable.’ Cold Fusion Video

‘Gorgeous? Uplifting? Transcendental? YES. The Capture of Bigfoot is an exceptionally daft hit from Billy Rebane. It somehow manages to corral two white-furred Bigfoots, tons of snowmobile action, and a life-altering song into 85 slim minutes. Good stuff.’ Bleeding Skull
