Bobcat Goldthwait made a Bigfoot movie, and we kind of want to see it

Normally we would shrug off Willow Creek as just another found footage horror flick. But then we found out that Bobcat Goldthwait directed this film, and we love World's Greatest Dad. So color us curious.

Heads up: Trailer is NSFW, due to brief male nudity and language.

Thanks to Badass Digest for debuting the trailer, while explaining that the movie is actually a lot funnier than it appears in this video, and yes those Big Foot experts are all the real deal. Badass also teases that "the film's central set piece is a bravura piece of tension that is so protracted you could never fit it in a trailer." We don't know what that could be, but after the shocker that was WGD, we know it could be anything. Here's the official synopsis:

Jim and his girlfriend Kelly are in Willow Creek, California, to retrace the steps of Bigfoot researchers Patterson and Gimlin, who, in 1967, recorded the most famous film of the legendary monster. Kelly is a skeptic, along for the ride to spend time with her boyfriend between acting gigs. Jim, a believer, hopes to capture footage of his own, so his camera is constantly rolling.


Willow Creek will be premiering at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, but the rest of us will just have to wait until it comes down to the States.
