As a sort of alternative and very private bachelor party, Michael (Mercer) and Christopher (Flowers) travel deep into the wild of nowhere, USA, to do some fishing. Soon, there are first signs that something's not 100% right - but the first day, they cannot make out anything more tangible than a slightly trigger-happy hunter. It's only on day two that they start seeing a weird creature lurking in the woods just far enough away to never be seen all that clearly. It seems to be an ape or a bear or something ...

Things get worse when our heroes stumble upon fresh blood, severed bodyparts, even heads on sticks ... and then at one point they see a party-happy teenager being killed - by Bigfoot (Danny Stiling). Now our heroes know all they can do is run and run fast - but they're pretty deep in the woods and of course lose their track in all the hectic.

They eventually do meet up with the hunter again, but as trigger-happy as that guy is, his gun is actually only shooting stun darts as he wants to capture the creature alive. Too bad then Bigfoot doesn't care to be captured and doesn't stun that easily either ...

 

Uwharrie is one of a myriad of found footage shockers, made at a time when the genre has long gone stale - but what sets Uwharrie apart from most other movies of its ilk is that ... it simply doesn't give a shit (and in a good way). And having said that, this is not even 100% true, the film actually does go through the trouble to set up its story (not 100% common with all found footage movies), but once everything's established, the film just lets loose, using the not totally convincing Bigfoot costume as running gag, bringing characters back into the story that have been seen dying a while ago, always leaving room for wisecracks, and even making fun of the found footage genre as such (like in the scene where Bigfoot actually carries the camera). This all might not result in the very best movie ever, probably not even the best Bigfoot or found footage movie - but hey, it's lots of fun, and should make a great party movie, too!
