Synopsis by Mark Deming
A team of scientists gets more than they bargained for while on a research trip in this thriller. Dr. Ethan Edwards (Gary Sturm) and Dr. Helen Gilbert (Amy Shelton-White) are a pair of paleontologists who are leading a team of students and forest rangers on an expedition though a deeply wooded area in search of fossils. Edwards and Gilbert are hoping to find evidence that will support their theory that a primitive primate, not unlike the "Sasquatch" or "Bigfoot," lived in the area. After setting up camp one night, the crew discovers what appears to be some sort of burial ground for creatures very much like those the researchers were hoping to find. But the excitement of this discovery turns sour when the paleontologists realize that most of the bones are of fairly recent vintage -- and that a living and very angry specimen of the Sasquatch is lurking in the woods, ready to attack. Produced under the title Primeval, Sasquatch Hunters also stars Matt Lattimore, David Zelina, Stacey Branscombe, and Juliana Dever.
