Your Feet's Too Big: A Pictorial Tribute to Sasquatch
Whether they came from the swamps of Florida, the pastoral forests of New England, or the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, regional horror filmmakers all had one thing in common: they liked making movies about Bigfoot. Next to the slasher subgenre, the Bigfoot/Yeti/Sasquatch film was one of the most trodden paths to regional horror immortality. In honor of the recent publication of Dave Coleman's The Bigfoot Filmography, we present a visual tribute to cryptid cinema.
The Dead Next Door is a blog about regional or "backyard" horror and science fiction films made from the late 1950s to the earlyl 1990s (and beyond). These films were released during the peak years of independent film production, created by a motley crew of seasoned pros, gifted amateurs, and enthusiastic genre fans, along with dozens of eccentric dreamers -- doctors, lawyers, insurance salesmen, publishers, commercial filmmakers, TV production crews and moonlighting pornographers -- all looking for their big break or a fast buck or both.
