Some myths are based in fact and not all stories are fairytales. Monsters are real, and the big legend is true – BigFoot exists and he’s headed overseas.

Los Angeles, CA – November 2, 2018 – When an ex-soldier ventures to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest to propose to his girlfriend, he gets more than he bargained for when he finds BigFoot.

TriCoast Worldwidehas secured international rights for Justin Lee’s (Any Bullet Will Do) all-star BigFoot horror, BIG LEGEND (2018), for the upcoming American Film Market. As an exciting addition to Sasquatch cinema, Lee’s directorial debut tackles the cryptozoological creature narrative commonality with packed action-adventure, welded with fright-factors and monster mayhem that tackles the theme of human survival.

“Lee adeptly gives equal importance to dramatic weight and suspense building, putting BIG LEGEND several notches above the typical creature feature,” wrote Ghastling Grinning, adding, “The creature design is terrific, and Lee is not shy about showing it off after some initial classic teasing shots. This BigFoot is not a timid one, so discerning monster-movie aficionados can expect lots of aggressive behavior from the titular beast.”

As an exploration of the creepy world of cryptozoology, BIG LEGEND follows a military veteran, Tyler Laird (Kevin Makely), who takes his girlfriend Natalie (Summer Spiro) on a camping trip into the Oregon forest, where he plans to propose. Expecting a whirlwind-weekend of romance, Tyler’s world is shook to its core when a BigFoot creature attacks them, kidnapping Natalie. Haunted by the disappearance of his fiancé, Tyler spends a year under residential psychiatric care from Dr. Wheeler (Amanda Wyss) until he’s released, and hopefully ready to move forward.

“Lee fascinates the spectator with calibrated camera angels. Part National Geographic visual expedition, part mood, and tension, BIG LEGEND has a feel of both worlds. Lee sets the relevant tone while guiding the viewer through the visual narrative. Part of the success of this visual narrative is in part by Cinematographer Adrian M. Pruett,” remarked DecayMag.

But, with convincing from his mother Rita (Adrienne Barbeau), Tyler ventures back into the woods to solve the mystery of the terrifying night, ultimately seeking revenge on the BigFoot creature. Deep in the woods, Tyler encounters Eli Verunde (Todd A. Robinson), a mysterious loner who is also seeking the creature. Though Tyler doesn’t actually believe in the myth of BigFoot, the two suddenly find themselves hot on the trail of none other than monster himself. Concluding in a confrontation between the BigFoot creature and Tyler, BIG LEGEND shines with action and fight sequences, as Tyler attempts to contend the elusive creature.

BIG LEGEND was first released at the Portland Horror Film Festival in June 2018, impressively awarded the Masque Rogue Award – Best Performance (Todd A. Robinson). The action-adventure then received its USA video on demand release in July 2018.

“With BIG LEGEND, Lee has crafted a winning creature feature that delivers plenty of action and tension, but not at the expense of character development. The film has an engaging story peopled with believable characters portrayed by talented actors. Monster movie fans, BIG LEGEND is an entry into the genre that is not to be missed,” concluded Ghastly Grinning.

BIG LEGEND stars Kevin Makely (Jumper, Stranglehold, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), Todd A. Robinson (Deep Dark, All Hell Breaks Loose), Summer Spiro (Westworld series, Oceans Rising, If Looks Could Kill), Lance Henriksen (Mom and Dad), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Freddy vs. Jackson, The Hatred) and Adrienne Barbeau (Escape From New York).
