Some say timing is everything. Well while we here at TG2 Studios might not entirely agree with that, we do agree that timing has an usual way of figuring into key events, and one such key event revolved around the movie Valley of the Sasquatch, which was shown at last year’s Horrible Imaginings Film Festival almost exactly one year to the day! (We have an interview with the filmmaker Matt Medisch from last year’s film festival that you can hear in TG Geeks Episode 38.)
Well now, one year since the TG Geeks had the pleasure of seeing Valley of the Sasquatch it has been announced that the Big Foot horror film has received distribution, and has been re-titled Hunting Grounds, and will be released later this year by Uncork’d Entertainment.
The movie tells the story of a father and son who are forced to move to an old cabin in the woods after a devastating tragedy. The forest unearths a tribe of Sasquatch who are determined to protect their land.
Galen Christy, head of High Octane Pictures, the sales agents that sealed the deal says “We are so excited to be working with Uncork’d Entertainment again. They are a fantastic, solid company and we know that the film will be in good hands with them”
Keith Leopard, president of Uncork’d Entertainment, adds “Being from the Pacific Northwest I’ve always been fascinated with the legend. John’s movie offers such a great take on the subject, I think audiences will love it!”
Written and directed by John Portanova and produced by horror label The October People, Hunting Grounds stars Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Jason Vail, David Saucedo, D’Angelo Midili, and Emmy winner Bill Oberst Jr (Criminal Minds).
Uncork’d Entertainment will distribute film domestically. Street date to be announced soon…
Are you one of those fans of movies that deal with monsters in the woods? Are you a fan of the legends surrounding Sasquatch?
