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 Holthouse, the informants told him the murders were the works of a nearby sasquatch who ripped the three victims apart limb by limb on a nearby farm.

While there are no police documents for the alleged triple murder, the men claimed to have seen the bloody aftermath, noting that the killer didn’t take any of the victim’s belongings — or pot from the farm, further leading them to believe it was caused by a Bigfoot.

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.

In Hulu’s Sasquatch, Holthouse returns to the Redwoods for the first time, nearly three decades after the intense events went down, determined to learn more about the murders.

Per News Herald, Holthouse interviews multiple professional “sasquatch hunters” throughout the three-hour series. He also speaks to a retired police officer who recalls a traumatic night when he believes to have survived a Bigfoot encounter.

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.

In “Stalking the Bogeyman,” Holthouse details how a traumatic experience being sexually assaulted as a child strengthened his tolerance for fear — aka the reason he’s not afraid to encounter a terrifying creature such as Bigfoot.

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.
