Under the Radar DVD of the Week: 'Shriek of the Sasquatch'
This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
“Shriek of the Sasquatch”
Super hot babes and hairy, bloodthirsty beasts populate the decidedly retro, tongue-in-cheek drive-in movie homage “Shriek of the Sasquatch,” due out on DVD Tuesday.
It’s the work of writer-director-actor-composer Steve Sessions, whose contributions to low-budget video horror include such titles as “Dead Clowns,” “At the House of Madness,” “Contagio” and “Cremains.”
A throwback to the heyday of the drive-in ’70s, this kicky little monster flick apes all the tacky conventions we’d expect from a night out at the movies under the stars – buxom babes in distress, hulking beasts on the prowl, lots of gore and severed body parts, a cheesy synthesized musical score complete with sound pops and even a scratchy, scorched film print.
The story is pro forma for the B-movie genre: A comely couple, Julie (Sarah French, a.k.a. Scarlet Salem) and Nick (Donny Versiga), are driving through a rural area that’s had a rash of recent Bigfoot sightings and mysterious deaths. And before long they find themselves involved with a small-town deputy (Todd Cockroft) who is in pursuit of an elusive, murderous, ape-like creature.
