Robert Kurtzman's Bigfoot design for Eric Red's No Man's Ridge revealed!

No Man's Ridge Eric Red Robert Kurtzman

One of the most exciting genre projects coming down the line this year is Eric Red's action/horror film NO MAN'S RIDGE. The filmmaker who has written and/or directed such classics as THE HITCHER, NEAR DARK, and BAD MOON, to name just a few, is now bringing us a Bigfoot movie - and Red has said that the Bigfoot in his film is "shaping up to be one of the biggest, baddest practical effects monsters ever." That has me hyped even before you take into account that we have connections to the project here at Arrow in the Head.

Bigfoot itself has been designed by special effects legend Robert Kurtzman. The concept art he created has been unveiled on the NO MAN'S RIDGE social media accounts, and can now be seen below.

NO MAN'S RIDGE has the following synopsis: 

A helicopter soars over the forests in the remote Wyoming wilderness of No Man’s Ridge area. Inside are five heavily armed and formidable hunters all dressed in militarized camouflage fatigues and face paint. They have state-of-the-art high-powered rifles, heavy caliber handguns, crossbows and hunting gear. The extreme hunters are there to bag a Bigfoot— the ultimate hunt for the ultimate trophy. The hunters wear hat cams with compact high-resolution HD cameras to record the hunt. They also have gun cams for their rifle barrels, bow cams and portable trail cameras to put on trees. In the far reaches of the wilds, the people are dropped from the hovering chopper by cable into deep forest, fifty miles from civilization. When the five hunters see an actual giant Bigfoot walking through the woods a half-mile away, it seems like the creature doesn’t have a chance—but it’s the other way around.

A collaboration between Line Drive Productions, Bruise Productions Inc, and JoBlo Movie Productions, the film is being Produced by writer/director Eric Red, Special Makeup Effects Supervisor Robert Kurtzman, Special Makeup Effects Designer Steve Johnson, Meredith Red, and John Fallon. Berge Garabedian serves as Executive Producer. This will be the first film under the Arrow in the Head Presents banner.

NO MAN'S RIDGE is set to star Marc Natoli, Nick Principe, and John Fallon.

Kurtzman's Bigfoot design is truly awesome, I can't wait to see this thing get brought to life. This looks like it's going to be the most badass Bigfoot we've ever seen.
