I just miss my dog

May contain plot spoilers. This is another hand held film looking for Bigfoot and so far is the least worthy of the lot. Jim (Bryce Johnson) decides he wants to retrace the steps of an old sighting. Kelly (Alexie Gilmore) his skeptic girlfriend comes along so she can make annoying films. The movie is 80 minutes long with 73 minutes of boring filler material. Jim introduces the project and we get to see all four takes. Why? I have no idea. Then Jim interviews real people while Kelly jerks the camera while filming...Hey! just set it on the car! The interviews were very boring. Were these seriously written by Bobcat? They seemed like real interviews.- Yawn. That bookstore guy was terrible. This was far from entertainment. Then we had the long drawn out tent scene where they play "What's that noise?" The only real clever dialogue in the film was the "douche commercial" Kelly mentions in the beginning. You don't actually get to see Bigfoot, just a camera jerking around looking at the grass while someone makes idiotic gagging and gurgling sounds off camera. What was with the dirty naked woman? I really expected better from Bobcat Goldthwait. F-bomb, sex talk, nudity- brief female plus male (Bryce Johnson)

Just above average

Willow Creek, with its very short running time, doesn't do or say a great deal. It offers some creepy moments and some genuinely chilling scares, but it isn't very exciting and ends on a flat note, and you're not quite sure what just happened, nor do you particularly care. The performances are pretty solid though, and an extended take featuring the two leads in their tent listening to the Blair-Witchian sounds surrounding them is a stand-out moment.

Could have been better, could have been worse

I've never made any secret of the fact that I'm a big fan of the "found-footage" genre. I really enjoy almost every film that is made this way. It just makes sense as a story-telling style to me. For the most part though it seems to me that people are sick of the concept and no longer have any time for it. 'Willow Creek' was made back in 2013 when the genre was basically in its dying stages (films are still made in this style, but less and less frequently). So did 'Willow Creek' breed fresh life into the concept, or was it simply another nail in the coffin? The answer lies somewhere in the middle. The film is very simple in its premise. Basically a documentary is being made about Bigfoot by a young couple and they head to a small town, do some interviews with the locals, and then head into the forest to see if they can find Bigfoot for themselves. Sounds simple? It is. Probably too simple. I understand films like 'The Blair Witch Project' pulled it off with basically exactly that formula, but the problem is that was 20 years ago which implies the genre has gone absolutely nowhere in that time. That's simply not true. The film isn't bad though I wouldn't say. There's a quite incredible 18 minute long one-take scene (according to the IMDb trivia section at least) that is surprisingly well done. The main couple have enough chemistry and charisma to carry things and there is enough creepiness in the atmosphere to keep it interesting. This is a middle of the road horror film.
