Following a devastating tragedy that took the life of his wife, Roger and his son Michael are forced to sell their home. With nowhere else to turn, they head into the backwoods, where Roger owns a ramshackle cabin. The grieving father-son duo struggles to cope with their loss while Roger struggles with keeping the elements out before winter arrives. To lighten the mood, Roger invites his friends for a fun weekend of hunting and drinking, but the laughter soon turns to panic and the hunting party realizes that they are, in fact, the prey being stalked by a mysterious figure among the trees. In his feature film directorial debut, Bremerton native John Portanova uses the dank, dense Pacific Northwest woods to create a palpable, paranoiac sense of foreboding. By revealing only fleeting glimpses of the terrifying sasquatch, he slowly ratchets up the tension as the heroes feel the beast circle ever closer—or wait, is there MORE THAN ONE? Shot in such familiar Washington state locations as Roslyn and Snoqualmie Pass, Valley of the Sasquatch hits close to home as both an appreciation of the 1970s Bigfoot film craze and as a genuinely creepy horror story that will keep you away from the woods for weeks.
