Halloween Disc-A-Day 2017: Day 14 – Primal

Continuing from last year, this project is an attempt to help me get dvds that for one reason or another I’ve never seen off of my shelf and give them a watch.  Up next, I’ve got Primal.

IMDb: Primal (2007)
A team of environmentalists investigating “unchartered territory” find that someone, or rather, something has already made the land its home and proceeds to take the team out, one by one. Meanwhile, a young couple hoping for reconciliation with a long lost brother eventually find themselves in the path of the monster.

Bigfoot movies seem to be a tough sub-genre of horror to do well based on how many more misses I’ve seen as opposed to hits.  The best you can hope for is something unexpected to happen and that just isn’t happening in this one.  It’s dull.  I’ve seen worse, but I don’t think this is going to do anything for most viewers.  Whenever Bigfoot is about to attack, they put a heavy film grain effect on the footage removing any chance you may have had of being even remotely surpised.  As a side note, the ranger looks like Dan Tack from Game Informer.  That has nothing to do with anything.  It’s just a fact.  I would recommend Demonwarp if you have to watch a bigfoot movie.  It’s not good, but it’s weird and at least that’s something.

Come back tomorrow for another of these and in the meantime, gaze upon Dan Tack and dispair.  Also, listen to this old episode of Motion Picture Meltdown about Harry and the Hendersons to satisfy the bigfoot itch.
