Grindstone sights ‘Bigfoot’ chiller

Eyes winter release for found-footage thriller

Grindstone Entertainment has acquired North American rights to the microbudget found-footage thriller “Bigfoot County,” and will explore release options for late this year.

Described as “Deliverance” plus “Blair Witch” meets Bigfoot, chiller is fashioned from footage ostensibly taken by a group of filmmakers who disappeared in Northern California’s Bigfoot-sighting hotspot of Siskiyou County.

Stewart also produced with Richard Halpern. Grindstone will release “Bigfoot County” through Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

“I went up to shoot a movie on Bigfoot, then a local I met with presented me with evidence that blew my mind,” says director Stephon Stewart. “After seeing this film, you will begin to believe what many have doubted since the 1967 Patterson/Gimlin Bigfoot Footage was released.”
