Living in a suburb that backed to woods, my sisters and I always figured something was going on back there. But we didn’t think about Bigfoot. (We were too busy dreading the day when vampires from ‘Salem’s Lot would learn about Amtrak late-night scheduling.) But for you Bigfoot fans and phobics, Stomping Ground has your guy…or does it?
This indie-fest darling has a nice buildup of creepiness and Teh Spooky in the trailer, along with some low-key humor. Check it out:
Stomping Ground hits VoD March 8th. I wish it’d been available during last year’s Spooky Movie Fest; this looks like it’d be a really good time in a dark theater. Read on for the full deets after the jump!

BRINKvision is proud to announce the March 8th DVD and Video-On-Demand release of Stomping Ground, an independent Bigfoot horror feature by writer/director Dan Riesser. Mike De Trana produced through Anvil Entertainment.Stomping Ground is the story of Ben and Annie, a young couple on a weekend trip to Annie’s small North Carolina hometown. At the local bar they run into Paul, a charming old friend of Annie’s, and Ben learns something he never knew about his girlfriend: She believes in Bigfoot. In fact, she and her friends used to “hunt” for the creature when they were kids. Before Ben knows it, he’s off on an impromptu Squatchin’ trip deep in the Carolina backwoods. Amidst the Squatch calls, campfire stories and beers, Ben quickly realizes that Paul may have an ulterior motive in bringing Annie to the woods. And something else out here seems to be after her as well. Everyone but Ben thinks its Bigfoot. But it can’t be, can it? After all, Bigfoot isn’t real.
The film features a cameo performance from Theresa Tilly, best known as one of the original “Ladies of the Evil Dead” from Sam Raimi’s horror classic, The Evil Dead. The film world premiered at the 2014 Dances With Films Festival in Hollywood, CA and received the “Soul of Southern Film Jury Award” at the 2014 Indie Memphis Film Festival. Filmmaker Dan Riesser, formerly an Emmy-nominated producer on E! Entertainment’s The Soup with Joel McHale, wrote, directed and produced Stomping Ground as his first feature film.
