Sasquatch Sunset: Star-Studded Movie Filmed in Northern California Looks Weird as Heck

If you haven’t learned by now, I have a healthy obsession with movies filmed in Northern California. At this point, after the long sequence of Leonardo Dicaprio sightings recently in both Humboldt and Sacramento, I’m actually a little burnt out on the subject.

And then the trailer for Sasquatch Sunset was released. This looks WEIRD. Check it out:

The movie showcases a unique take on the elusive creatures known as Bigfoot, set against the backdrop of their natural, albeit not so private, forest home in Northern California (or at least filmed here). The film, starring Riley Keough, Jesse Eisenberg, Christophe Zajac-Denek, and Nathan Zellner, who don impressive prosthetics to embody a family of sasquatches, promises a blend of absurd humor and heartfelt moments.

The film premiered at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive reviews, although many people referenced the patience you need to buy into the odd and dialogue-free plot. If the trailer is any indication, at least we’ll be given beautiful views of the NorCal redwoods in the process. According to IMDB, the movie was entirely filmed in Northern California, specifically Humboldt County.

Audiences can catch a glimpse of this absurdist comedy in select U.S. theaters starting April 12, with a nationwide release scheduled for April 17. “Sasquatch Sunset” is set to offer a fresh and humorous perspective on the legendary Bigfoot, promising plenty of laughs and maybe even a few life lessons from the forest’s most famous residents.

Northern California sits as the unofficial home of Bigfoot, with the most sightings to date on the planet. The National Forest Service even named a remote stretch of California Route 96 as the “Bigfoot Scenic Highway.” There’s also a 360-mile trail in NorCal’s vast upper wilderness named the “Bigfoot Trail,” which stretches through the Yolly-Bolly, Trinity Alps, Russian, Marble Mountain and Siskiyou Wildernesses.
