cult films are presented in this encyclopedia of Bigfoot cinema.
This book features a wonderful introduction by famed cryptozoologist and author Loren Coleman, who blissfully recalls his youth spent watching "Half Human", a Japanese made film about the infamous cryptid. While David Coleman also gives a glorious introduction recalling his days as a young child watching the classic Bigfoot film "The Legend of Boggy Creek"
David gives a great historical evolution of Bigfoot in the film industry. This book is both entertaining and highly informative. Included throughout the book are great photos from various films and TV shows which feature the hairy beast. Featured in this book as well are several interviews with directors who have contributed to the world of Sasquatch cinema.
This book stands as a monument to Bigfoot cinema, and gives it the respect it richly deserves. Bigfoot truly is the ultimate movie monster, because quite frankly he just might be REAL! This book is a must have for film lovers and Bigfoot fanatics alike!

A definite resource. The book is well worth the price and is highly recommended.
This weighty tome is written in a clear, easy to read, manner which both informs & entertains. One doesn't need to believe in cryptid hominids to enjoy tracing the history of this topic on film for the passt 100 years or so....a really great read!
