Bigfoot, NM Style

Posted by on August 9, 2011

As I am but a lowly housewife with internet access (think Roseanne with slightly better furniture, worse housekeeping and no actual wage earning) I defer to an actual journalist, as I almost always do, except, if and when I refer to fellow hacks ;).

Here, from real-life professional entertainment journalist, Chris J. Ortiz is a full fledged article about the long awaited New Mexico film The Bigfoot Election.


After being fired, a boozy, derelict small town deputy named Talmadge Mooseman (Marc Shuter) is convinced to run for sheriff by his gruff adoptive father Carlin (Randall Oliver). He enlists the help of his endearing, albeit dim-witted friend Amer (Matt Peterson), and the two devise a Bigfoot hoax to garner attention and votes from the townspeople. Things quickly spiral out of control as the con begins to take on a life of its own and becomes bigger than either of them imagined. Matters get complicated even further when the local mayor (Bruce Holbrook) brings in an alluring cryptozoologist (Ashlee Renz-Hotz) and enlists Talmadge to guide her during her search.

Catch it:

Premiering this August 20 at the Albuquerque Film Festival followed by a screening at The White Sands International Film Festival August 25th.
