On the heart of Megafoot is a cyborg-bigfoot killing machine who will get away from its creators and wreaks havoc on the town whereas armed troopers try and deliver it down earlier than everybody will get killed.

Megafoot is a venture by author/director Rolfe Kanefsky, the person who has been maintaining the Emmanuelle franchise alive over the previous decade. The gorgeous factor about Megafoot is Kanefsky’s willpower to make it utilizing sensible results, fairly than the CGI results that dominate filmmaking at this time.

Whereas I’ve by no means learn hairy-man erotica, I did learn a hairy-man e-book just a few months in the past referred to as Man of the woods Crank Stomp by Erik Williams. In Williams’s e-book, hairy-man is captured by methamphetamines makers who check their new merchandise on the large beast. The result’s a meth-crazed hairy-man who escapes and goes on the hunt for medication to fulfill his jones.

Megafoot 3: Borg Once more
Megafoot 4: Cryptids and Punishment
Or one thing like that.
