Critic Reviews for Sasquatch Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (7)

Underlying the thrilling true-crime story is confrontation with a myth that reflects the monstrous potential within us all.

Director Joshua Rofé allows his story to evolve naturally, leading to a stunner of a denouement.

Apr 15, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A modern true-crime doc of a rare breed: rarely have they felt as nerve-racking, dangerous, and truly scary.

Mar 22, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Though it's a shame so much of it unfolds in phone calls with subjects who wouldn't speak on-camera, Holthouse's investigation feels genuinely dangerous

May 3, 2021 | Full Review…

The series has some compelling material to work with - which it proceeds to squander.

May 7, 2021 | Full Review…

This is a looming one, hanging over like a dark cloud that never seems to let up. While the titular creature brings your curiosity, it's the compelling, intense story that keeps it, with David Holthouse as our perfect guide on this unexpected ride.

Apr 28, 2021 | Full Review…

Unique among its true crime peers, David Holthouse's investigation into a Northern California bigfoot myth feels similar to other genre-bending documentaries. It's an unexpected treat.

Apr 27, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Sasquatch definitely suffers from the dreaded Streaming Docuseries Bloat Syndrome (SDBS), but the two-pronged dive into weirdo cryptid obsessives and the California criminal underworld is creepier than your usual true crime eyebrow-raiser.

Apr 27, 2021 | Full Review…

From Holthouse trying to track down the guys who witnessed the carnage all those years ago to academics weighing in on the nature of the cryptid, Sasquatch is an intriguing documentary that takes you on a wild and winding trail.

Apr 24, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Sasquatch isn't your typical series exploring monsters. It's layered. Some viewers may feel like it isn't focused on the topic in the title, but it actually is, in a much deeper way than we've seen on screen before.

Apr 23, 2021 | Rating: A | Full Review…

It's a refreshing change of pace that inverts the traditional true crime narrative and consequently, sidesteps some of the genre's crasser tendencies.

Apr 22, 2021 | Full Review…

Sasquatch has all the elements of a great true-crime series. In fact, it is unique in its humanity while it fearlessly looks at the monsters that may or may not exist in the Emerald Triangle.

Audience Reviews for Sasquatch: Season 1

  • Apr 28, 2021
    Two days later and I'm still not 100% sure what it was that made me rip through all three episodes in one sitting. The whole sasquatch angle was fine (more amusing than actually entertaining) but I almost wish this was just a documentary about the black market pot trade in NorCal, because the history behind it was far and away the most interesting part. This could have probably been one, 90-minute doc and it would have sufficed.

    3 episodes too long. A weak premise, a cast of sketchy and unreliable people imagine what might or might not have occurred. I include the Filmmaker in the cast of sketchy people. I won't lie, I am sketchy too but I didn't make a documentary. Don't lose 3 hours of your life here.

    The show starts off with the story of a strange triple murder up in the redwoods of Mendocino County in northern California. The first episode then mainly explores the theory that Bigfoot/Sasqatch did it, which I found entertaining for about 20 minutes before moving on. Episode 2 is about the weird culture of Mendocino, made up of both free-loving hippies and racist rednecks (often mixed), and how the drug war on marijuana made their culture more violent, underground, and paranoid. Finally, episode 3 goes down the rabbit hole of community gossip over who was responsible for the killings, only to land in an unforeseen but not totally unexpected place. Ultimately, this show is about the monsters within us and the monsters we project onto others, and the main narrator – a journalist who has previously gone undercover among skinheads and drug lords – is a great guide.

    This is not about Sasquatch. This is a random, meandering, disjointed and simply awful, uhhhh, true life drug revenge story? Three hours I'll never get back. Let the buyer beware!
  • Apr 23, 2021
    A combination of two documentary styles leads to a surprisingly enticing story through the first three episodes. Sasquatch is both a little silly and deadly serious, which makes for some very fun pacing. It's also surprisingly poignant for a true crime show in which the lead suspect is Bigfoot. All told I came looking for campy fun but instead got sucked into the rabbit hole that is Mendocino County and a murder mystery that I will certainly see through to the end.

    What a great storytelling style. Super creepy and weirdly insightful.

    Mmmmmmm, different. The Duplass brothers are cutting a niche for themselves.
