"Tired of the same-ol’, same-ol’ when it comes to spooky stories set in the deep woods? Stomping Ground is a film that digs into mythology and interpersonal dynamics to amp up the suspense..." --Atomic Fangirl

  1. Nice to see Barackman and Bobo having fun with the topic, Guy. We enthusiasts tend to get a bit too serious, I think. And the Stomping Ground film looks decent too. Glad it's done by small film makers and not a big production house deal. That'd be a good way to ruin the subject, by casting people like Matthew McConahey and Jennifer Lawrence, sheesh!

  2. Prices are reasonable, food is delicious, and wait staff is sweet, conscientious, and adorable. I came here for an event, got contained to upstairs. Service at event venues was prompt and food was awesome.


Let's keep the language clean, keep in mind we have younger fans and we want to make this the best bigfoot website for bigfoot news and bigfoot research.
