In 2012, Michigan was a absolutely odd locale, the pot laws were not as relaxed as they have become subsequently, plus getting high was still a criminal offense, however at the time, my pals plus I were dead set on making our own low budget horror films, however every one of us based our story on a series of local Bigfoot sightings that had transpired the previous year.
Three odd people all claimed to have encountered the monster on the same weekend.
Every one of us thought that would make a neat documentary. Every one of us were going to call it the Ann Arbor Abomination, because I thought the title sounded cool. Every one of us looked up the original articles in the Ann Arbor Examiner, the local newspaper at the time, plus marked the sightings on a mapâ€¦ Fueled by cheap whiskey plus costly cannabis, all of us spent a weekend stomping around the woods near Ann Arbor, getting footage of all these locales where the Abomination was allegedly seenâ€¦ Of course, all of us didn’t assume that there was a Bigfoot in Ann Arbor, so all of us didn’t expect to find 1, but over the course of the filming, I started to believe. The woods near Ann Arbor are dense, plus absolutely spooky at night, especially when you have been blasting high octane cannabis all afternoon long. Not only did all of us never find anything, all of us also never finished the film, getting too distracted with marijuana! My only memento from the experience is an Ann Arbor Abomination film poster all of us made for the project, with 1 little corner torn away because all of us used it to roll some cannabis into a joint.
