Yer Feet’s Too Big: The Man Who Killed Hitler & Then the Bigfoot (Review)

 

 

From the movie’s title you’d quite naturally think that The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot was a routine Troma/Asylum-style cheesy horror-comedy.

 

But you’d be in a for a big surprise…

The always reliable Sam Elliott (The Contender, Roadhouse, Big Lebowski) plays ace tracker/survivalist Calvin Barr, a kind of Steve Rogers (Captain America) character, except with a serious case of the grumps.

 

His killing Hitler proved little difference to WWII, as the Nazis replaced Adolf with a lookalike.

 

It appears that the rest of his long life has been spent stoically moping around, until duty calls again, one which he reluctantly answers.

 

Big Foot (yep Sasquatch himself) has been spreading a virus (uh-huh) fatal to the vast majority of the human race, but Barr is one of few people that’s immune – and has his almost superhuman skills still up to scratch, as evidenced at the beginning of the picture when he beats up a bunch of thugs attempting to steal his motor.

 

Elliott tracks and corners Big Foot, who initially rope-a-dopes the hunter, but he is eventually brought down.

 

The human race is saved – that is, until The Loch Ness Monster, The Chupacabra, a Wendigo and Tuunbaq* (The Terror) start spreading a new deadly pandemic…make a nice sequel?

A decent score by Joe Kraemer (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and some good tunes featured, including this from Billy Squier:
