Willow Creek (2013)

Director: Bobcat Goldthwait. Cast: Alexie Gilmore, Bryce Johnson. 77 min. Unrated. Horror/Mystery.

In 'found footage' format, young couple hikes deep into California forests to visit the Patterson-Gimlin site where the only known footage of Bigfoot/Sasquatch was shot in 1967, and possibly even see the beast itself. The Blair Witch Project comparisons are inevitable, and the ending is predictable just by reading these few words. Still, the last third of the movie is a feat of "artistic terror" I've rarely experienced, and includes an extended night-time tent scene, with a completely still camera on its protagonists, and the sheer madness of forest noises ... for a full 16 minutes! Must-see for horror gurus.
