Well over the summer Paul spent time with his forest ranger father, ran into the big cryptid and befriended him over Cokes. Mostly Morgan smiles evilly and shows Paul pictures of Bigfoot. The author of this book provided free copies of the book to have their book reviewed by a professional reviewer. Season 11 of Mystery Science Theater 3000 features a few films that seemed to be targeted at a younger audience. No fee was paid by the author for this review.
One joke lands well and you are chuckling, but missing the next three rapid-fire riffs. But let me tell you about the acting in Cry Wilderness. However, that night when everyone has gone to bed, Paul hears someone calling to him outside, and goes over to the window: it's Bigfoot! Helen Foster, the vet that appears halfway through the film for no reason, is fully dubbed. Eric does what he can to help his furry pal, and the results are just about what you'd expect in such tripe. The acting is awful, but that's only in keeping with the film's other production values. It grows even funnier when Crow starts taking a sledgehammer to a propane tank and Servo proceeds to whack a bee hive with a baseball bat which has Jonah in stitches. He babbles something about knowing Bigfoot, and there is a magic amulet that kind of plays into the story, but not really.
I compared this film to Pod People, and I think the editing is what does it. The riffing is near perfect, the sketches are the right tone and the episode cruises along smoothly. And yes, it looks like the actor is actually roughing up the poor little creature, so any of you with soft hearts to animals may want to look away. Several trips upstream by the son have failed to locate the blockage and now Dad wants to be released. He finds his father, a park ranger, and an assortment of other strange characters and they do… something.
Sounded like a lot of wondering around trying to find a plot. They show up a little bit more in the out of theater sketches, but just barely. You can say much the same for the cast, and the whole thing ends up looking, to me, almost as gross as Touch of Satan. It is such a bizarre barrage of a movie I would think they might want to have a few more films under their belt before tackling this mess. So it is really a side story that also meanders around. And while the characters are improving, the Bots still feel like background characters.
But a similar issue occurs here that happened in , some of the riffing ends up coming way too fast. Yeah I forgot to mention Red Hawk Foster Hood. In a story that only Frank Capra can tell, the David and Goliath of small-town tourism politics comes to a head in the wilderness of the Sierra Nevadas. That said, despite its flaws, the sketch does work and it left me laughing. The characters are getting more comfortable in their roles, the riffing is stronger, and the movie is suitably goofy and accessible for the new team to tackle.
Things start off with Gypsy attempting to do some repairs on the ship and keeps dropping tools on folks below. He wields his privilege in big swings, and his progressivism is littered with paradoxes. But Will and his Native American pal Jim John Tallman are hunting an escaped tiger. The key plot element is Paul attempting to save his father from some kind of danger. The hunt for the tiger turns into a hunt for Bigfoot, and maybe the tiger gets Morgan, or maybe Bigfoot saves Will from the tiger, or maybe Morgan tries to kill Will to get him out of the way and that is how Paul can save his father. I think most people who attempt to watch this film will spend their time trying to untangle the web of bizarre strangeness in front of them.

And neither is bad acting. Well, there is the end title song, which is such a bizarre thing that it provides plenty of unintentional laughs. Everyone in town is on edge and wants the tiger killed. Amazingly, this gun-happy trio is convinced they are tracking down an escaped circus tiger. The rest of the music and sound are adequate.
The child obsession with animals in both feels weird for some reason. We're talking about a kids' movie that ends with a man having his eyes bloodily scratched out by an eagle, after all, and when would that seem like a good idea? Can Paul find and warn his huge hairy pal, or will it end in tears as we all Cry Wilderness. David tries to keep Bigfoot a secret. Finally we get to the direction. When the danger that threatens Will is revealed, it turns out to be rock fall in a mine. Paul is then picked up by a trucker who doesn't seem at all puzzled that a 10 year old is out there.
