Back in July 2017 DecayMag first announced on Justin Lee’s cryptozoological Horror Film. Principal photography ended the year prior and it was only a matter of time before the film would reach the distribution phase.
Big Legend will appear on VOD on the 3rd of July 2018. The production team uploaded a trailer to YouTube on the 29th of May 2018.
Based on the footage provided in the trailer Big Legend looks to adhere to the conventional template with the Bigfoot storyline. There is no avoiding placing the man versus nature or man versus the unknown component against the backdrop of a forest. With so many filmmakers taking this direction now would be an appropriate time to apply other diversities of the Bigfoot story such as Sasquatch and Yeti.
Big Legend is based on lead actor Kevin Makely’s experience. The question here is whether Lee enhanced the incident too far into the fictional realm thus disturbing the real account.
One interesting feat to the trailer is omitting a complete creature reveal. This is a clever move from the editor to obscure the creature and just produce enough opportunities to tempt curiosity with viewers. Another highlight is the influence of Bigfoot as the Apex predator, the hunter becomes the hunted is a classic and unfazed approach to action cinema. For Horror, however, it is another facet that has overstayed its welcome.
