Produced by the Duplass Brothers (Wild Wild Country) and directed by Joshua Rofé (Lorena), Sasquatch is a three-part series that follows journalist David Holthouse as he unexpectedly finds himself investigating a triple-murder allegedly caused by a sasquatch.
Per Hulu’s description and a News Herald review, the investigative journalist was visiting a marijuana farm in Northern California in 1993 when two men (whom he suspects were high on crystal meth) approached and informed him that three Mexican men were just murdered nearby.
According to the Bigfoot Researchers Organization and Travel Channel’s In Search of Monsters, California is among the five states with the highest number of reported Bigfoot sightings. The state boasted 1,697 alleged sightings as of May 2019.
Having witnessed the event nearly 30 years ago, this isn’t Holthouse’s first time recalling the mind-boggling events of that dark night in the Californian redwoods. In 2004, he wrote a first-person essay titled “Stalking the Bogeyman” for independent Denver publication Westword.
Fittingly enough, as its main setting is a pot farm, Sasquatch premieres on Hulu on Tuesday, April 20, the marijuana-centered holiday of 420. Whether you decide to celebrate or not, take some time to dive into the mystery this week.
