Willow Creek could be longer but still somewhat scary, B-

What: movie review
When: November 2014
Why: an indie b horror flick
Who: Willow Creek

It's always satisfying to give a b horror flick film a B rating. Such is the case with Willow Creek, an independent small movie whose genre includes horror and comedy. The film is a found footage flick that revolves around a nerdy young couple heading up to Willow Creek in California in order to try and get Bigfoot on film.
While the 'found footage' genre has been stretched to the max by now, writer & director Bobcat Goldthwait's first adventure into horror adds a bit of fun to it.
The movie actually could be longer (it's only 80 minutes long), and the ending especially could have been more drawn out to add additional thrills and terror, Willow Creek on a whole doesn't disappoint. Its funny in the beginning and the last 30 minutes of the film will keep you on your feet.
The biggest let down of the movie is the ending, which really isn't an ending at all. It's as if they ran out of time and money to continue the movie, which they should have gone for at least another 20 minutes or so. If they would have fixed the problem of the ending, this movie would be an almost great indie horror flick.
This small horror flick isn't the best by any means, but it isn't horrible either. Fans of the genre will be pleased overall, despite the sudden ending.
