Bigfoot

R.I. P. Peter Graves, the man who narrated 'The Mysterious Monsters,' a movie that scared me shitless when I was a little kid. A "documentary" released at the height of the 70's Bigfoot craze, this was one of the only movies that ever truly got my goat. My family had just relocated to a rural area--with woods--and unlike all those other monster movies I loved so much at that age, everything in THIS particular movie was supposed to be true. After seeing it, I had trouble sleeping for weeks, which of course could've partially been due to the fact that my dad (who found a lot of humor in my fear of Bigfoot) would hide outside my window at night, scraping at the screen and knocking on the side of the house.
