Sasquatch: Did the Cryptid Commit Murder in the Emerald Triangle?


Jeri Klein

Brace yourselves, fellow squatchers! A new Bigfoot docuseries is coming to Hulu! And its name is Sasquatch

That’s right. From the brilliant minds who brought you Wild Wild Country, the exposé about the infamous Oregon-based cult leader Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, comes another docuseries focusing on strange occurrences and happenings in the Pacific Northwest (What is it with that area?!). But this time, instead of a cult, it’s about Bigfoot and so much more. 

The production follows investigative journalist David Holthouse as he retraces a story he heard in his youth while visiting a pot farm in Northern California - a story about 3 men whose limbs were torn off in a brutal Bigfoot Attack. 

Yes, you read that correctly. This mini-series is about uncovering if Bigfoot killed a bunch of men. Of course, these possible murders just happened to occur in the Emerald Triangle, a region in northern California known for producing the largest amount of cannabis in the United States. 

Like all good documentaries, Sasquatch takes you on a connect the dots journey that’s akin to the doodles of a small child who just learned how to hold a crayon. There’s a murder mystery, cannabis, Bigfoot sightings and conspiracy theories. Along the way, we meet many captivating individuals, most notably Dr Jeff Meldrum, professor of Anatomy and Anthropology at Idaho State University and world-renowned expert on Bigfoot prints (If Dr. Meldrum is in a Bigfoot documentary, you know it’s the real deal!). 

As David says in the trailer: 

“I don’t know if I believe in Bigfoot, but I sure as hell believe that there are monsters among us.”

Sasquatch sounds like it’s one hell of a wild and crazy journey, where nothing is as it seems and the truth is far stranger than fiction. And I for one can’t wait to binge watch it! 

Catch the cryptid thriller April 20 on Hulu.
