Eduardo Sanchez’ Bigfoot horror ‘Exists’ confirms US release date


This frustrates me I have to admit. Eduardo Sanchez was one half responsible for The Blair Witch Project, one of the finest found footage horrors ever made. He also directed a superb segment for VHS2, was behind decent genre features Seventh Moon and Altered, and also directed one of the best horror films of 2012, Lovely Molly. Why then is his new found footage Bigfoot film, Exists, getting so little exposure?

We have seen a poster and a couple of images, but that’s it, not even a trailer yet so for Christ sake can we sort this out, please!

While the news today has nothing to do with the films UK release, it is an excuse to remind fans that Exists does actually exist, and that it is on its way.

Lionsgate have confirmed that the film will be released in the US on VOD on October 3rd, followed by a limited theatrical run on October 24th. No dates have been confirmed for the UK yet.

Now please, where was that trailer again???

Exists is a found footage horror directed by Eduardo Sanchez and written by Jamie Nash (Lovely Molly, Seventh Moon, Altered, S-VHS). The film stars Dora Madison Burge, Samuel Davis, Roger Edwards, Chris Osborn and Denise Williamson.

The film was shot on location just outside Austin, Texas at Spiderwood studios. Producers are Robin Cowie, Jane Fleming, Andy Jenkins, and Mark Ordesky with Gregg Hale and Reed Frerichs exec producing.

Back in June 2011, Sanchez had this to say:

The film is the first in a trilogy exploring and reinventing the Bigfoot myth,” Sanchez said. “We all remember the terror of watching such classics as ‘The Legend of Boggy Creek,’ and I look forward to making Bigfoot scary again.“


Five friends take off for the deep woods of Texas for an epic party weekend. But once there, they come face to face with a vicious beast that may in fact be the legendary Bigfoot. As they fight for survival, they unlock a shocking truth behind a terrifying myth.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
