"Made for less than $10k?? And a fantastic film came out of it?!? YES; these guys have put together a very capable homage to the drive-in horror of the 70s. If you aren't familiar with those films, the movie might be somewhat unintelligible, but it's a good time nonetheless! The environment of rural Texas (and the creepy inhabitants therein) are worth a watch alone. The directors did a fantastic job rendering Texas on film. You're trapped where I grew up: good luck getting out alive with a sane mind! Then there's a man beast making minced meat of people with the antlers of a stag. Oh yeah. It's like that. Add a few moonshine stills and you have the recipe for much bloodshed in the Texan sand.

A really enjoyable flick; I look forward to seeing what these guys do in the future.

I love southern horror!

"'The Wild Man of the Navidad' definitely has that 70's camp feel to it! When watching it, I could clearly see that it pays homage to such films as: 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', 'The Legend of Boggy Creek', 'Creature From Black Lake' etc. Even though it does pay homage to those films, it doesn't over do it in such a way that it would be ripping off its predecessors. It is truly original and I can easily see this becoming a cult classic over time. It just has to! Besides this being a low low budget flick, I could tell the makers behind it wanted their legendary wild man to say as campy as if it were depicted in 70's cinema. And by that I mean this isn't the scariest beastly-looking man that is seen by todays Horror movie standards (today being the keyword). Don't get me wrong, this wild man does play out a creepy vibe! I love how the wild man is portrayed. It's realistic. It's believable. Some viewers will not get it. I'm going to go out on a limb and say younger audiences these days will be the ones that wont get it when getting their first glimpse at the beast. Having grown up just outside of Shreveport, Louisiana for the past twenty something years, I might be a little biased on this "review". To be honest, once I find out there is a Horror flick that puts on some kind of southern act, I go in with almost a negative attitude right from the start. Well, I'm glad to be wrong! This flick has nothing but locals in it! So in that case, I can't argue about actors overplaying the redneck role. haha.

What does make this "true events" story different from the other flicks I've mentioned, is that there is some splatter involved, but nothing too over-the-top. If those of you can understand its campy approach and not look at it as just being silly, than you will enjoy it for what it's meant to be. The images captured in 'The Wild Man of the Navidad' are beautiful!"
The Wildman of the Navidad- on a par with the Legend of Bogg

"This is probably my favriote Killer Bigfoot/Slasher type of movie of the 2000's, sure there's abominable but this one appeals to certian people and when it does it is bloody frigging awesome

Plot- a man owns part of a backwoods in a rural community, but it is inhabitated by Bigfoot, but when money becomes desprate he re-opens the area, now the graphic blood shed will begin

Acting- i actually thought of it as having rather good acting, but a better script was needed

Gore- this was a brutal film, i mean the beast even brutally killed a kid, we also get guts ripped out, a lot of blood splatter, disturbing imagery and more

Bottom Line- 5 out of 5

Not Rated/ Time 86min/ 2008/ Color

"Not bad for a micro-budget 1st feature...
I'll give it an "A" for ingenuity...
& it really is a nice-looking film...
I like the way they tweaked the digital imagery
to almost fool you into thinking you're looking
at 16mm reversal blown up to 35
to show on some drive-in circuit!

& the thoughtfully cheezy script is nicely whack...
Combine that with a brilliant supporting local cast
& you're in for almost 90 minutes of free wheelin' no budget fun!

the monster suit is pretty much film school surreal...
& I mean this mostly in a positive way...
You know the thing about how seeing the zipper in the monster suit
breaks the spell of our suspension of disbelief...
Well, this monster suit is made of nothing BUT zippers!
The result is a sort of dissociative archetypal thing that ends up
slamming you face first into a real arthouse/grindhouse boogeyman...

More fun than too scarey...which adds to the surreality...
especially considering all the pig guts strewn around!

Cool movie. Get it."
