Some Bigfoot movies are attempts at terror and others are intentionally or unintentionally humorous. I'm going to discuss some hilarious attempts.
I think I need to give these flicks a beer rating of 1-4 beers depending on how many beers it takes to enjoy the levity. If it's mildly amusing, just a beer to make one mellow is enough. But, if the film is particularly ridiculous, it make take 4 beers to sit through it and mostly that's because you're having such a good time, you don't want the antics to end.
Bigfoot's Wild Weekend (2012) (You can find this one on Netflix streaming right now) 4-beer rating. This flick is off the charts hilarious. So, Bigfoot decides to start pilfering and sniffing panties in campsites, cuddling up in tents and generally disrupting a community. The film does not in any way take itself seriously so this party-on friendly movie deserves 4 beers! *For this one, I'd suggest something with some kick to it like Samuel Adams Utopia (one of the strongest beers).
The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972) 2-beer rating. A documentary style film telling the legend of a hairy wild man seen in Fouke, Arkansas. It has narration of a casual southern style and a soundtrack of twangy music. Telling the stories of people's encounters in the swamps and the woods, it's a real gem from the early 70s. It gets a 2-beer rating because enough decades have passed that this folksy flick is rather humorous. *For this one I'd suggest Rainier (Arkansas's favorite beer)
Bigfoot (2012) Made for Syfy channel with 70s all-star cast including Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams. 3-beer rating. Two musicians square off to compete to hunt for Bigfoot. This is so over the top and flamboyant with a Bigfoot that is as big as King Kong and CGI effects that delight in their campiness. It is a real laugh fest. *As this kind of feels like a frantic holiday, I suggest Guinness.
The Curse of Bigfoot (1978) 3-beer rating. A teacher takes students in the woods to look at artifacts where they run into a mummified body. The body comes to life and is a Bigfoot that proceeds to terrorize. This awful 1970s film is so bad it's hilarious. *Traditional cheap beer like Pabst Blue Ribbon.
The Creature From Black Lake (1976) 2-beer rating. Two Yankee students decide to head south in search of a supposed swamp Bigfoot. They chase down a local to figure out how to find the creature. It's campy, it's very 70s, it's just plain fun. Two beers is all that's needed to appreciate the level of goofiness. *Let's go with a popular 1970s beer like Budweiser.
Enjoy your marathon of goofy Bigfootery and beer.
