Breedlove Produces 2nd Bigfoot Film

Actor/Producer/Heart-Throb Adam Duggan

 DATELINE:  Superior Research

This year’s Part Two of the notable documentary on Bigfoot by Seth Breedlove did not disappoint. Though the history and legend was on-spot and in-depth, his decision to follow-up with a search for the animal may have proven foolhardy.

In his hands, this focus is again unusual and takes a position, even with witnesses and investigators, that is a bit different. He even admits that a year on the trail of Bigfoot is enough to help him understand the bug that bites those who devote their lives and personal resources to the search. He goes out on several daunting night-time searches.

A surprising area in Oklahoma is a virgin forest near the Arkansas border, not what you think of as the great plains. It is a habitat that is so dark and lonely that no humans have settled here. A few camps of investigators have been established.

A hotspot called Area X, this place contains a group that is ready to take down a Bigfoot for science. Yes, the only way to truly prove that Bigfoot exists is to bring one in dead. To that end, they have powerful weapons, hide in the bush, wear camouflage, and are hunting for one Bigfoot.

Their view is that sacrificing one ape is necessary to protect all of them.

So, far after five years, there is no luck in killing one. However, audio tapes document rock throwing attacks and wood tree banging. The unidentifiable shrieks can be anything.

A pair of big eyes is called possible observation, but it seemed to be an owl, not a Bigfoot.

One of the researchers is Adam Duggan, a handsome young man who claims to be a skeptic, but also is listed as a producer and actor in Bigfoot films. Even if he is a skeptic, he may not be above the search as a route to fame and fortune.

Science has failed Bigfoot research, and those who have tried to tie UFOs and paranormal to Bigfoot have not helped the quest. Two unproven theories tend to cancel each other.

Most researchers are self-funded and there are hardly an networks of shared research. It is an expensive and time-consuming hobby, and those who have given it up are like ex-alcoholics, warning off others.

Another brilliant effort from producer and director Seth Breedlove.

On the Trail….Bigfoot (Again)

DATELINE: Historical Track 

After a plethora of Bigfoot films, perhaps rivaling the numerous sightings, one grabbed our attention for its historical look at the topic. Well, that is novel and unusual in the spate of witness accounts.

On the Trail of…Bigfoot.

This little documentary wants to take us back to the roots in pioneer America, and it does contain many morsels hitherto not reported widely. And, you must couple that with breathtaking scenes of miles of forestland around the country.

One of the first stops is Ohio, hardly a place you’d think Bigfoot would be seen: yet there are some fairly wooded areas and some fairly surprising tales.

Back in the first-half of the 19thcentury the newspapers knew a good thing to sell the slow news day:  but they did not call this creature Bigfoot. That was years away.  He was known as The Wild Man, or the Mountain Devil. He was a creature shockingly naked and hairy. Of course, some of the more prudish newspapers had him putting on some clothes. We rather think this a convention to keep readers from too much shock.

The monster had been reported in late 19thcentury after discovery of the gorilla in Africa. Groups of thse mountain devils attacked prospectors regularly. The big galoot was impervious to bullets.

Produced by Seth Breedlove, this film is intelligent and careful, tries to be objective, and manages to be original in the process.

The Pacific Northwest started the “Bigfoot” verbiage when lumberjacks found bare footprints around their logging equipment and publicized it. It took till the 1970s before the phenomenon moved eastward again, with the Minerva Monster of Ohio.

However, the Abominable Snowman (from the 1920s) took hold in American movies and that sparked an Americanized form. The major characteristics developed quickly, though eastern versions were more aggressive and hostile.

By the 1990s, you had a merging of Bigfoot and UFOs—and the evolution of a legend reached a new apex. This fascinating documentary is worth your time, from 2018.
