Bigfoot got D.B. Cooper and went straight to video

I recall a while back the moment I heard that maybe the D.B. Cooper mystery could be solved with another mystery – Bigfoot. And, here it is.

Exclusive DVDetails and art: Eric Roberts and Linnea Quigley in “BIGFOOT VS. D.B. COOPER” | FANGORIA®.

For those readers too young to remember, D.B. Cooper was a hijacker who commandeered a 727 jet over the Pacific Northwest in November 1971, parachuted from the plane with $200,000 in ransom money and was never seen again. Countless theories have been raised about what happened to Cooper, and filmmaker David DeCoteau has his own idea: “I remember the evening when D.B. Cooper leaped from that plane,” he tells Fango. “I was 9 years old and living with my family in Portland, Oregon, where Cooper boarded it. It was all over the local news. Even at a young age, I knew it would be near-impossible for anyone to survive that jump—at night, during a rainstorm. I knew the area of Washington State where the FBI thought he could have landed. It is so remote and dangerous that if the jump didn’t kill D.B., then maybe something else did. BIGFOOT VS. D.B. COOPER is my theory of what actually happened to the hijacker.”

WHOA Boy, that’s something! I don’t know what, probably something awful, but something. Shirtless guys, Eric Roberts and a bad costume? Not my scene.

See more on IMDB. This straight-to-DVD film comes out in June.

    David DeCoteau has been making cheezy, sleazy gay-themed “horror” films for years…this is no kind of a surprise.

    I remember it. Nice full moon on the DVD cover. What happened to the downpour and related clouds?

    Btw, 11/24/1971 moon was a waxing crescent.

    Great cover art, though. Like the 50’s, but I wax nostalgic.

    Yeah, there’s a slew of his work on Netflix.

    They’re not really horror films, and they’re not really soft-pour corn, either.

    He always has four half-naked guys on the cover, too.
