Going looking for Bigfoot – good luck! We’re checking out the new to DVD flick "Hunting the Legend" out now from RLJ Home Entertainment. We examine the hairy situation below.
Title: "Hunting the Legend"
Cast: Chris Copeland, Hannah Wallace, Jeff Causey
Director: Justin Steeley
Rating: Not Rated
Runtime: 95 minutes
Release Company: RLJ Home Entertainment
The Flick: Forget the fact that this flick is shot once again in the uninspired found footage format or that the acting makes Ashton Kutcher look like Olivier. What will really burn a horror fans ass is the fact that after a shoddy ninety-five minutes there is no payoff here whatsoever. And this is after having a very creepy looking cover with the hunted in full view, plus a wasted element of a son out to hunt the beast seeking revenge for the death of his father. Rip + off = exactly what you think.
Best Feature: No Features – nobody wants to claim responsibility for this thing.
Best Hidden Gem: The only decent acting work in this fiasco is a creepy man living in a cabin surrounded by the monsters played by Stan Copeland – guess how long he lasts?
Worth the Moola: Not even as a fluke.
