Written and directed by Matt Hausmann, The Bigfoot Hunters is a half-hour comedy short that follows a self-help group of individuals with a myriad of Bigfoot encounters - both positive and negative. This band of misfits, ranging from a gun-toting British priest to a foul-mouthed truck driver and his beer-guzzling lady (who doubts the existence of Bigfoot), joins forces to defeat the Bigfoot attack that has overtaken the government and the entire country.
In the vein of horror comedies like Shaun of the Dead and Army of Darkness, The Bigfoot Hunters seeks to straddle the comedy and horror genres. Having surpassed its original Kickstarter goal for the short film of nearly $15,000, it was no surprise that the end of the film announced an extended, feature-film version of The Bigfoot Hunters that is already in the works.
More details regarding the official release of the short film, as well as the production timeline for the feature, will likely be available on the official Facebook page. Be sure to stay tuned for more information regarding The Bigfoot Hunters!
