Willow Creek Reviews

Devin Faraci
Badass Digest

Willow Creek isn't a joke. It's not a satire. It's an actual found footage horror movie that centers on Bigfoot... and it's actually scary.

Willow Creek is an unexpectedly restrained and atmospherically effective slow burn.

The two actors establish a realistic chemistry, and the otherwise familiar movie cranks up the tension by exploiting common fears.

Goldthwait's pacing is all wrong, taking far too long to get his film where it needs to be and creating zero tension along the way.

It's all well and good to want to say things using the world of a horror movie, but it's even better when you don't forget to try and be scary for 75% of the runtime.

It's damn good. Believe it... [Willow Creek is] a break-up movie, really; just one in which a mysterious monster assists in the breaking.

Willow Creek is Goldthwait flexing a whole new set of film-making muscles and he proves that there's some life left in the found footage genre.

It's smaller in scope and horror ambition, which automatically makes it more enjoyable than most of its brethren, creating a mix of local color and camping disaster that's basic but frightfully effective.

"Willow Creek" is a defiant slow burn.

By aping upon other like-minded pictures and never quite releasing himself from the shackles of humdrum convention, director Bobcat Goldthwait sells himself short.

Mr. Goldthwait gives us lovely, buttery daylight scenes, nicely relaxed leads and dialogue that pays attention to fluctuating gender dynamics.

The parts are greater than the whole, but there's a lot to like here, including the easy interplay between the leads.

One of the best things about Willow Creek is that it represents someone's unwavering vision, and in today's commodity oriented movie marketplace, that's unusual indeed.

The final 20 minutes of the film prove once again that what you can't see is infinitely more frightening than what you can..leaves you goosey and tense.

He may be seriously slumming by putting a modern spin on 1972's The Legend Of Boggy Creek, but at least Goldthwait's done his homework.

A found-footage horror cheapie that turns out to be its creator's warmest, most satisfying work.

A unique representation of the tension between those who scoff at the Bigfoot legend and others willing to accept the mythology as gospel.

Though it's disappointing to see Goldthwait step away from the conceptual audacity of his previous work ... Willow Creek does everything a little bit better than others of its kind.

Bobcat Goldthwait's effective yet wholly unnecessary contribution to the genre of horror movies allegedly recovered from the hard drives of dead cameramen.

Bobcat Goldthwait exposes the characteristic male pursuit of power to which females are often made subservient.
