Review:

Yet another bad, cheap Bigfoot creature feature, this time Martin Kove is a great white hunter who wants revenge for the monster killing his father when he was a child. Bear Valley National Park is the hunting grounds for this beast, forced out of its home by a fire that is growing worse. Dale Davis is one of those Bigfoot researchers who has devoted his life to finding its whereabouts enlisting the aid of Kove to get a true recording of the creature's existence so that all his scoffing critics would finally be proved wrong. Tony Becker is a forest ranger who is investigating the murder of firemen who seem to have been ripped to shreds by a bear or something. Becker's pregnant wife (Lisa Wilcox, "Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master", wasted in a minor part) waits for him to come home. Meanwhile, Anna Enger and her husband Quint Von Canon are on the lam after a convenience store robbery goes wrong resulting in a murder, hiding out in the forest and certain to come in contact with the Bigfoot themselves; Becker will encounter them, learn about their crimes, and attempt to arrest them. The movie is such a low budget affair that the Bigfoot murders mostly occur off-screen and none of the characters, except maybe Becker (although, Kove is fun as the uncouth and stubborn hunter who will not cooperate with Davis even as the kid pays him for his help), are that particularly interesting. Davis, as the know-it-all with fancy gadgets supposedly hi-tech enough to find Bigfoot, often looks foolish, though he is sincere in his goal to catch an authentic recording as to have evidence to contradict the doubters who chastised him. The villain of the film, besides the violent Bigfoot on the rampage, is a developer with grandiose plans for the area, responsible for starting the fires as to level the park so he could get his plans underway.
