Bobcat Goldthwait---yes that Goldthwait---directed Willow Creek, a film to scare

A young couple find themselves face to face with a terrifying evil when they venture into the heart of Bigfoot country in Willow Creek, director Bobcat Goldthwait's unique spin on the horror genre. It creeps onto Blu-ray and DVD from Dark Sky Films and MPI Media Group on September 9.
Be prepared.
Looking to make a splash with his research videos into the existence of Bigfoot, Jim (played by Bryce Johnson) and his skeptical girlfriend Kelly (Alexie Gilmore) take a camping trip to the mountains surrounding Willow Creek, California, a small town where famous footage of the legendary Sasquatch was filmed decades earlier. Jim believes Bigfoot exists and is intent on finding the very spot where the huge, hairy, man-like creature supposedly strode.
But before long, Jim and Kelly are lost in the woods and discover that someone---or something---is stalking them. We assure you it's not Jimmy Hoffa. With each passing night bringing unknowable danger, the two must use all of their cunning to try to make it out of the forest alive.
Goldthwait takes a radical departure from his recent string of black comedies (God Bless America, World's Greatest Dad) to create a film that shows there are still surprises and shocks to be had in the found-footage genre pioneered by The Blair Witch Project. In her review in The New York Times, Jeannette Catsoulis pointed out Goldthwait "engineers a static, almost wordless 19-minute shot inside a tent that generates more tension than many horror directors achieve with a swarm of Foley artists and a healthier budget. This canny exploitation of the power of silence is unnerving."
Special features on the BD and DVD include: Commentary with Bobcat Goldthwait and stars Alexie Gilmore and Bryce Johnson, deleted scenes, Bryce Johnson's The Making of Willow Creek and more.
