Movie Review: "Shooting Bigfoot" Featuring Rick Dyer Is Just Dyer Hoaxing Again
Here's the review as promised by Twitter user @rougemount. Please follow him on Twitter as a favor for updating us on this latest hoax by Rick Dyer. Dyer had been claiming for several months now that he shot Bigfoot during the filming of "Shooting Bigfoot" by Morgan Mathews. The famous 2008 Bigfoot hoaxer has managed to convinced thousands of people including a popular group on Facebook that he murdered a Bigfoot at point blank range. Dyer is claiming that he has a Bigfoot body somewhere in Las Vegas. Here's the review that blow all of that away:
I just finished watching the film and I must say the filmmaker did a good job.He was not here for the opening which told you there would be no climactic finish.Anyhow just like we thought the filmmaker follows three bigfoot hunters,Biscardi,Rick and Dallas and his partner(forgot name).Biscardi is amusing seems like the Tony Soprano of the Bigfoot world.Very direct,pushy and in many cases amusing.The two from Ohio are like an old married couple.Bumbling through one expedition after another,but love able .Then Rick.
We first meet Rick in his tricked out Bigfoot tracker SUV with his new assistant.He plays the 911 homeless call in his car to Mathews and off to the Home Depot we go.He finds the homeless people who made the call then we get their version.Rick sets up camp for what he says will be ten days.So the night in question..Filmaker senses something is up with Rick and decides for the first time in the movie to talk directly to us the viewer from his tent.He wonders why this certain homeless guy is always around the camp and pops in from time to time,kinda like a homeless Kramer.So now we are awakened by a crash on Mathews tent.Camera goes on Rick is in underwear no shirt but with rifle.Camera man is yelling at Rick not to shoot anything Rick runs ahead and fires 3 shots.All is quiet,he is calling Ricks name and no answer.All of a sudden he is pushed down by lol bigfoot.The camera slows down and gets a great shot of a guy in a suit.Kramer I mean bigfoot takes off.Rick shows up after to help Mathews to his feet.They walk back to tent with Rick demanding to see the tape"rewind it press play" he shouts.They watch the footage and as he is pushed down they stop the film and show a direct picture if this guy in a suit.Mathews is pissed at Rick for hoaxing him and Rick keeps screaming give that tape it's mine dammit!
Movie ends with Filmaker flying back home with scrapes and brusies he received from Rick.I honestly believe the Facebook guys were not in on this at all.They were in disbelieve and shock and I could over hear them saying"but what if they did it this way too..."Sorry didn't get the rest.5 out of 10.Funny in spots well shot.Sorry for the grammar
Update: @rougemount had this to add: "oh I forgot the Bigfoot in film is not same as in camper video looks totally different"
Earlier this year, confident that Dyer may be telling the truth about shooting Bigfoot, the group Facebook Find Bigfoot had promised fans that they will shut down their page if Dyer is proven to be a hoaxer:
