Bigfoot flick The Lost Coast Tapes scores North American distribution

We haven't heard much about director Corey Grant's The Lost Coast Tapes in a year, but word broke on the Interwebs today that the Sasquatch thriller has landed North American distribution with XLRator Media. 

The deal was announced at Cannes yesterday, and potential deals are pending with G2 Pictures/Koch Media for Europe and New Select in Japan. 

This is good news for what promises to be a decent horror romp. Aside from Abominable and some really shitty SyFy movies, the big hairy dude hasn't been well represented on film. The legend is due, and here's hoping The Lost Coast Tapes delivers.

As for the plot, when a "Bigfoot Hunter" claims to possess the body of a dead Sasquatch, a disgraced investigative journalist stakes his comeback -- and the lives of his documentary film crew -- on proving the find to be a hoax.

Drew Rausch, Rich McDonald and Ashley Wood star. No trailer yet, but we'll post one when it surfaces.
