This is a new motion picture about the making of a bad Bigfoot flick. Haven’t we seen this film before?
The following is the official trailer for the feature length mockumentary, No Burgers for Bigfoot, about the supposed making of a terrible Bigfoot film.
Frankly, having taught a documentary film course for 23 semesters and discussing this very subject every year, I am a little worried by the less-than-creative humor displayed in the mockumentary movement. After all, what more can you do after This is Spinal Tap (1984)?
But Phil Hall promises in his two articles on No Burgers for Bigfoot that it is “original and delightful [and] it locks the viewer’s attention from start to finish.”
Forgive me if I am a bit skeptical and I guess I shall have to watch it to believe it. Even Hall notes that the movie-within-a-movie, “the Bigfoot film eventually gets made and the result (complete with an out-of-left-field country music number!) has to be seen to be believed.”
Just like Bigfoot!?
