If you are reading this, then the Colonel has deemed you worthy enough to be entrusted with the information which we are about to share with you.

The concept – based on an original idea and story by Justin Martell (Producer of Troma's "Return to Nuke 'Em High: Volumes 1 & 2") and with a screenplay by Rolfe Kanefsky (award-winning screenwriter/director of “There’s Nothing Out There,” “The Hazing” and “Nightmare Man"), who is also attached to direct - was to create the ultimate warrior using enhanced chemical and engineering technology. When it was declared that the end product would be used exclusively in conjunction with the U.S. military, Colonel Hankle and his team immediately took control.  A research facility in the backwoods of the American Mid-West was built, and a top-notch group of scientists was dispatched – along with some healthy, willing volunteers – to commence the operation.  Alas, the human subjects proved to be incompatible with the procedure.  All seemed lost… and then we made the most incredible discovery.

A new type of creature. GIGANTANTHROPUS CRYPTICUS, more commonly known as a Sasquatch, or Bigfoot.  We thought it was a mere myth, a projection of Man’s fantastical imagination, but we were wrong.  They exist.

Just the confirmation that these beasts inhabit this world would alone shake the foundation of Science across the globe.  But we could not pass up this amazing opportunity: fate, it seemed, was smiling upon us.  Our endeavors would not be wasted.  These hairy mammals proved to be a far more accurate match to our program than mere humans.  By combining a unique combination of Nature and Cybernetics, we will produce the most dangerous being on the planet.  The quest to create the ultimate warrior shall continue.  Project: MEGAFOOT.

In order to receive the funding we need to complete the Project, we are hoping to film an introduction that showcases the sheer power that MEGAFOOT holds.  For simplicity’s sake, we have decided to call this introduction “The Opening Ten Minutes Of MEGAFOOT.” 

Below is a short excerpt from our conceptual plans for "The Opening Ten Minutes of MEGAFOOT:"


Using these ten minutes, we can show the money-men what MEGAFOOT is capable of: death, destruction and fury.  And this is where you come in...

Every penny we receive will be utilized into creating a cybernetic sasquatch that our military can be proud of, and will cause our enemies to tremble at the sound of its approaching footsteps. Speaking in real-world terms, in order to bring our fans the greatest film about a cybernetic Sasquatch super-soldier ever made, the Megafoot monster F/X must be practical, not CGI.  

We were actually approached by two major companies who wanted to turn MEGAFOOT into a CGI-based scheme.  Money was offered.  Temptations loomed.  But the thought of a computer-generated Megafoot kept us all awake at night.  We couldn't do it.  A CGI Megafoot?  Admittedly, it's the easier option - but we're not here to sell-out.  We're here to make a movie about a cyborg Bigfoot on a blood-soaked rampage.  We're here to splatter the screen with guts and gore and to shake the very foundations of the earth with more hairy fury than you could wave a kidney at.  We owed it to ourselves, and most importantly to our fans, to do this right. 


The majority of the funds you help raise will be used to create a creature sui
t, animatronics, and to hire a stunt actor with suit-movement experience who can bring the creature to life. The movie is Megafoot and the Megafoot creature is the movie. To be done correctly will be costly, but the pay off will be on screen and it will all be because of you! Please find below a preliminary budget-breakdown for "The Opening Ten Minutes of MEGAFOOT:"



Also, the more money that is raised beyond the fundraising goal, the more we will develop the project; possibly expanding it to "The Opening Twenty Minutes of MEGAFOOT" and beyond.

Of course, there is always a little extra if you are willing to grease the wheels. Our staff members believe we have a major merchandising opportunity on our hands and have taken the liberty of mocking up a few promotional items. If you are willing to fund our research, you just may find some of these goodies dropped in your mailbox. You might even get a chance to meet the beast in the flesh.

"The Opening Ten Minutes of MEGAFOOT" will not only be used to raise the money we need to complete the experiment – it will also remain in the final, finished stage of the Project. It will not go to waste, and IT WILL ALL BE THANKS TO YOU!

Become a part of the team and we can share with you our discovery.  Join us and stand alongside the creators of MEGAFOOT as we unleash our vicious creation onto an unsuspecting world.
