Bigfoot Horror ‘Stomping Ground’ Eyes March Release


The forest is never a good place to be if you’re in a horror movie. It’s bad enough having to worry about Jason Voorhees and the deformed hillbillies from Wrong Turn lunging at you from behind the trees. Now add an evil sasquatch into the mix, and you’ll never want to go camping again.

The independently made Stomping Ground is exploring the concept of a horror film featuring the legendary Bigfoot as its antagonist, and we’ll be able to watch it ourselves early next month. The film doesn’t look nearly as cheesy as it may sound at first, and it definitely has my attention after having watched the trailer. It may not be the first time we’ve seen a sasquatch as the bad guy in a horror movie, but this has the potential to be the best flick to do so.Take a look at it yourself, followed by the official press release below:

Bigfoot horror Stomping Ground to hit DVD & VOD on March 8th

DVD available for pre-order with signed poster on

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.
