John Portanova’s creature feature drama, VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH, was one of our favorite films of last year (review) and rightfully so, it’s pretty great. Bypassing typical scares and cliches typically found in Bigfoot films, Portanova went for a very character-driven genre drama, focusing on a broken relationship between a father and his son and giving festival audiences a really interesting/entertaining film. Having done incredibly well in the festival circuit last year, VOTS won numerous awards (Best Horror Feature at the Toronto Independent and Idaho Horror Film Festivals and Best Cinematography at the Horrible Imaginings and Crimson Screen Film Festivals) and went on to critical acclaim.
Now it looks as if the October People-produced film has been acquired by genre distributor DevilWorks for international distro, and what better way to announce the pickup, than with a brand new poster/trailer? The poster, done by artist Brandon Schaefer, really captures the tone of the film and gives the feeling of great film posters of the late ’70s/early ’80s. Give it a look or two, and stay tuned for any additional news regarding the film’s release.
VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH stars Bill Oberst Jr, Jason Vail, Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, D’Angelo Midili and David Saucedo. The October People’s previous work includes ‘The Invoking‘ and ‘The Device‘.
