Storyline: Jim and his girlfriend Kelly are visiting the infamous Willow Creek, the alleged home of the original Bigfoot legend - the tale of huge ape like creatures that roam the forests of North America. It was there that in 1967, the legendary beast was captured on film and has terrified and mystified generations since. Keen to explore more than 50 years of truth, folklore, misidentifications and hoaxes, Kelly goes along for the ride to keep Jim happy, whilst he is determined to prove the story is real by capturing the beast on camera. Deep in the dark and silent woods, isolated and hours from human contact, neither Kelly or Jim are prepared for what is hidden between the trees, and what happens when the cameras start rolling...

Cheap, unimaginative, and dull
I would have preferred a film about a couple being stalked in the woods by Bob Goldthwait himself.

This is total rubbish. The first half of the film is literally about nothing. We do learn a bit about the characters, but otherwise it's just filler. Also, nothing we learn about the characters ends up being relevant for the plot, which is another characteristic of bad writing.

The drawn-out sequence at the end is just lazy and unconvincing. It seems to copy other similar scenes from Bigfoot movies and the stuff we saw in Blair Witch Project. But it's just not intense and it is way too long. Again, one gets the impression this was done because the writer was lazy. Also, to save money. If half the film is just two people sitting in a tent, that tends to cut down on your expenses a lot.

I imagine Goldthwait was doing the silly noises himself, no need to get a team to do sound design.

As for the dialogue, it starts badly, and it doesn't improve. One gets the impression it was written ten minutes before they started shooting. There is nothing in the dialogue worth one's attention. Unbelievably bad writing. And as for the plot, it is crap. It copies the template established in other similar films, adds nothing new, and copies the clichés so brazenly that one almost has to think it's a joke.

Zero for effort. Don't watch this, even for free.

Wasted part of my life.
Okay this movie has a lot in common with the Blair Witch Project so if you didn't like that movie you will not like this movie. Both movies are a lot a like by the way the story is told and filmed. They start out as a fun adventure but then quickly turn into a night of terror or nights.

Willow Creek I have to say could be seemingly be the only movie I would say is worse than The Blair Witch Project. Willow Creek just replace the witch with Bigfoot. The movie uses the fear of being followed and fear of not knowing what is right behind you. No excitement more so when in the longer than needed tent scene that ran 18 minutes longer than needed/wanted with Jim who has no emotion just a blank stare and Kelly whimpering like a injured dog.

I have to say that that the movie could have had some good points if they focused it more on the legend of Bigfoot and not more like a camping weekend.

had the potential to be better
There is a good, even great movie hidden within this interesting little flick, which unfortunately turned out to be just okay. Unlike a few other reviewers, I actually much preffered the first half to the second. I enjoyed how much humor and satire was scattered throughout the whole thing, and I thought it was written and acted quite well, even if not all of the dialogue was 100% funny or at all realistic. However, for the most part the movie felt very organic and real while still also being very interesting and surprisingly unique.

While the second half has plenty of good things in it, it unfortunately morphs into cliché found footage movie territory and becomes boring. The 20 minute long tent scene is original and has its moments, but its just too tedious for me to hail as intense and masterful horror

I would give this little comedy-horror movie a mild recommendation to those interested, but be warned: the final half hour is likely to disappoint.

Well acted and very organic
I admit that I like found footage films, or, rather, I find that story telling device compelling. Assuming it's done well. To do it well, your film relies heavily on acting first, then editing, then sound They all work well here.

Too often, these sorts of films have actors who don't know what to say, or how to say it, as they are expected to improvise and aren't confident how to be "natural". In this film, the actors are brilliantly natural and their chemistry is superb. They are a very believable as a couple and as people.

The goal itself is interesting, as I have rarely watched a Bigfoot movie, so I found that part of the film at interesting spin. But really, the slow burn here is what really makes me like this movie.

As with other films in which the protagonist is a wannabe filmmaker, there are lots of establishing shots with the local townsfolk to talk up the legend, and to get a sense of what is to come. It's all done pretty realistically, and, again, the actors dialogue/exchanges with each other are especially convincing.

Again, this film is very much about the slow burn of tension. This is very much exemplified in a scene near the end that lasts nearly twenty minutes for one continuous shot. And it's not boring. At all. The actors are brilliant in the scene, as is the sound. It's a highly effective scene and you really begin to get into the same dread of what's next as the characters due to the immersive nature of the scene.

Overall, I really liked it. I think the director did a great job in choice/direction of actors, and the overall story was not over the top. It's a great example of how found-footage should be done.

Though, the film doesn't actually try to tell you it's found footage, it's just that the only point of view is the camera(s) used by the characters. But I'll assume someone found the footage in that fictional universe at some point.

Decent addition to the genre.
It's not so bad. It is another addition to the first person cam-found footage films. And it's a... fairly decent one. It reminds me of a Bigfoot version of The Blair Witch Project except that the acting isn't quite as good. The "vocalizations" are a bit too human for me to believe and the death sounds weren't convincing either. But, it does a good job of creating suspense and, It succeeded in freaking me out and catching me with jump-scares in spite of myself. So if you like these kinds of films you'll enjoy this one. It's worth seeing. This ten lines thing is annoying. What else can I say... Oh. It's also one of those "patience is a virtue" films. Slow paced to start but the action eventually picks up and let's you have it. So hang in there for the finale.

crapfest
I rarely write reviews but I will make a sacrifice for the good of mankind. Life is short and you're better off staring into the wall or watching Oprah than this piece of crap. However, if you love watching interior of an occasionally shaking tent for 20 minutes, then this is the movie for you. This is even worse than Star Quest: The Odyssey and one star rating just doesn't do it justice - this one requires poop ratings.

Blair Witch meets Bigfoot...worth the watch (Spoilers within)
If you liked "Exists", this movie will not live up to your expectations. The movie is slow for 40 plus minutes, and then things heat up and boil over and quite abruptly end. Watching with a rewind option is a must.

While most of the dialogue between the couple is boring and pedantic, but the exchanges with the other folks of Bluff Creek and Willow Creek are crucial and full of foreshadowing. The payoff at the end was a solid effort by Bobcat. He creates dread, isolation, and fear by using the vastness of the forest, the creepiness of the locals, and the use of all the classic Bigfoot activities. SPOILER SPOILER (all without showing any shots of the Bigfoot).

6 Bigfoot Footprints out of 10

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER

The ending will leave you talking for hours and speculating. My take...these were definitely Sasquatch...multiple Sasquatch...and they from time to time kidnap females to mate with while killing any male in the way. Long gone are the days that the mural depicted...with hunters trying to bag a Sasquatch and the behavior of modern man in the forest...toward the land...toward the flora and fauna...the Sasquatch has retreated deeper and cut its ties with man...only taking women during population crisis.

Solid flick.

that's not a bear
To many negative reviews for this title. The first rule for seeing a scary movie is to be alone at night without any light sources and to wear headphones to really enjoy it (scary movie watching 101).

So it's 1 a.m and i'm beep scared and i'm beep myself watching this movie. First off i didn't like paranormal activity 1 (i liked only the 3rd) and i beep love ff movies.

This movie is effective in creating atmosphere and you don't need to wait too long for the beep to hit the fan. This is the little brother of Blair Whitch Project, if you like that you will enjoy this movie but don't forget the first rule!!!

80 minute movie that seemed 3 hours long
I was hoping to see a good, found footage movie about Bigfoot in "Willow Creek". Instead what I got was a bunch of half-wit interviews with locals (& no credible witnesses, I mean I get it was a movie but at LEAST ONE witness needs to be credible) & some of the WORST interaction between boyfriend and girlfriend ever put on camera.

Jim and Kelly decide to go retrace the infamous Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot footage of 1967. Kelly is a non-believer while Jim is determined to get footage. I will not give away any spoilers because THERE ARE NOT ANY! This movie NEVER gets going. Where as Blair Witch Project was interesting while slow moving, Willow Creek has 12 minutes of interesting things happen. The ending looks like it was shot by a 7th grader and you are left wondering WHY IN THE HELL DID I WATCH THIS FILM??? Bobcat Golgthwait wrote and directed this. I hope like hell he NEVER HAS IDEAS LIKE THIS AGAIN! Willow Creek is dried up. Avoid!

Could have been better, could have been worse
I've never made any secret of the fact that I'm a big fan of the "found-footage" genre. I really enjoy almost every film that is made this way. It just makes sense as a story-telling style to me. For the most part though it seems to me that people are sick of the concept and no longer have any time for it. 'Willow Creek' was made back in 2013 when the genre was basically in its dying stages (films are still made in this style, but less and less frequently). So did 'Willow Creek' breed fresh life into the concept, or was it simply another nail in the coffin? The answer lies somewhere in the middle.

The film is very simple in its premise. Basically a documentary is being made about Bigfoot by a young couple and they head to a small town, do some interviews with the locals, and then head into the forest to see if they can find Bigfoot for themselves. Sounds simple? It is. Probably too simple. I understand films like 'The Blair Witch Project' pulled it off with basically exactly that formula, but the problem is that was 20 years ago which implies the genre has gone absolutely nowhere in that time. That's simply not true.

The film isn't bad though I wouldn't say. There's a quite incredible 18 minute long one-take scene (according to the IMDb trivia section at least) that is surprisingly well done. The main couple have enough chemistry and charisma to carry things and there is enough creepiness in the atmosphere to keep it interesting. This is a middle of the road horror film.
