Bobcat Golthwait was best known for acting in the "Police Academy" movies, but has since moved on to directing. While he was noticed for his work on "Windy City Heat," he was eventually taken seriously after the dark comedy "World's Greatest Dad," starring Robin Williams.
Golthwait is now back with a new micro-budget horror film, called "Willow Creek," and we now have a new trailer for it. The movie is set to be released in select theaters and on VOD on June 6th.
Plot: Jim and his girlfriend Kelly are in Willow Creek, California, to retrace the steps of Bigfoot researchers Patterson and Gimlin, who, in 1967, recorded the most famous film of the legendary monster. Kelly is a skeptic, along for the ride to spend time with her boyfriend between acting gigs. Jim, a believer, hopes to capture footage of his own, so his camera is constantly rolling.
Ya know what, I thought God Bless America was spot on, and seeing american Idol shot up was all of our dreams at least one point in our lives.
Kick ass was tame compared to Super, and God Bless America was just straight up brutal.
(They three came out around the same time and I always bunch them together, and DeFendor, for that matter)
The scene when they shoot up a movie theater was right after that Dark Knight Rises sh*t, though they filmed it before, and kept it in.
I'll def. keep an eye on Goldthwait because he gained my respect with God Bless America.
...For the same reason I'm following James Gunn with Guardians. Honestly, I think that movie looks retarded, but Super is in my top 5 and the only other movie the guy directed was Slither, which is only a cult classic...
Worlds Greatest Dad was really good but depressing as hell!
I felt like there weren't enough funny parts to balance out the 'wanna hang yourself in a closet and die while jerkin off' sad parts
Oh, and re-reading my post, I didn't mean to say that Goldthwait gained my respect for keeping that theater scene in after that tragic shooting, not at all. The commentary as a whole in the movie was pretty cynical but spot on.
Should have been the ending of Kill Bill! haha Good call, Cress.
Sorta how Elvis is always seen with his drawers down on a toilet with a PBandJ and peanut butter, and mayo, and etc. in his hands.
Thats why I plan to die in private.
Carradine was the poor man's Lance Henrickson, but whos kidding, I still can't even spell their names properly. The were D list...
I do have a signed copy of Dead Man by Lance Henrickson though that I had him sign in '07 at the FX show in Florida
This dude is a sick, stupid f*ck who has made a career of being stupid and sick for sick, stupid people, which mirrors his movies, which I've regrettably seen out of morbid curiosity and dire desperation.
The worst is God Bless America, which is one of the most despicably ugly films, in terms of content, I've ever viewed, and though it's marked as a comedy by its auteur, it could only be seen as humorous by someone with either a heart full of humorous hatred, or absolutely no heart at all.
Not to mention there's no indication of comedic balance, which even Seth McFarlane accomplishes on occasion, and all the film's seem to be a grab bag of the director's infantile beliefs and thoughts wrapped in the costume of post-modern nihilistic despair, which renders the pathos of his films as somewhat ironic since the very aspects of modern American society he liberally mocks are, in moral and social terms, far more palatable than Bobcat's satirical offerings.
