Curse of Bigfoot is a 1975 American horror television film produced and directed by Dave Flocker (credited as Don Fields), and written by James T. Flocker (credited as J.T. Fields).

Plot summary[edit]

A high school biology class receives a visitor, who is a good friend of their teacher. He tells them of an encounter that he and their teacher had 15 years before while searching for Indian artifacts in the nearby mountains. They find a mummified corpse in a cave that resembles a rough-hewn statue. The mummy is brought back to their lodge and breaks out of its wrappings. It goes on a short rampage in what appears to be an orchard. The humans gather together to stop the creature before it can kill anyone.

The film is an expanded version of an unreleased film, made around 1963 and later titled Teenagers Battle the Thing for a video release in the '90s. The two stars from the original appear as adults in the opening scene of the 1976 film. The rest of Curse of Bigfoot consists of the entire 1963 film seen as a flashback. The original film focused on the resurrection of a mummy and had nothing to do with Bigfoot.

DVD release[edit]

The film was released on DVD on 8 July 2008.[1]
