Primal Rage (from Hoopla Movies)

Primal Rage
by Andrew Joseph Montgomery [Hoopla Movies] 

Primal Rage is a Sasquatch horror movie. This is outside my usual genres but I still thought it was a decent movie. There is a young couple, one of whom is just picking the other up from prison. There is a bit of tension between them during the car ride, which comes to an abrupt stop when they hit a pedestrian on a remote highway in the forested Pacific Northwest. They panic, get out of the car, get pelted with rocks, fall down a hill into the forest and end up in a river. Now lost in the forest the Sasquatch stalks them, even when they stumble upon a group of local hunters. What follows is not exactly happy trails, not even the ending, but this is a horror movie. I don’t feel I’d watch it again but it was ok for an evening with popcorn. Maybe a bit odd but my favorite aspect of the movie was the scenery; there were beautiful shots of the forest from the road and while they were in the forest that I really liked especially having driven through that area of the county before. I’d recommend it if you are looking for a sort of scary movie for an evening – defiantly a night time movie, not morning or afternoon.
