New Aussie Bigfoot film is a ‘Throwback’ to the good old days of horror

Australia’s dense forest landscapes are rumored to be home to Bigfoot’s cousin, the Yowie.   According to legends, the Yowie is a more aggressive creature than its more well-known American counterpart.

Writer/director Travis Bain combined his love of classic monster movies of yesteryear with the Australian Yowie legend and came up with Throwback.  Inspired by classic Technicolor jungle films such as The Bridge on the River Kwai, Run for the Sun and The African Queen, as well as ’70s bigfoot films such as The Legend of Boggy Creek and Creature from Black Lake, with a healthy dash of Predator thrown in, Throwback is an explosive horror/adventure feature set to premiere on the international film festival circuit in the second half of 2013.

Throwback is written, produced, and directed by Travis Bain.  It stars Shawn Brack, Anthony Ring, Melanie Serafin, Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior, Commando), Warren Clements, Andy Bramble, Mike Elliott, Trevor Garvey, Shaun Cram

Film Synopsis:

Throwback is about two modern-day Australian treasure hunters, Jack (Shawn Brack) and Kent (Anthony Ring), who go searching for the lost gold of the legendary bushranger “Thunderclap” Newman (Andy Bramble) in the remote jungles of Far North Queensland. But instead of riches, they find a different kind of legend: a ferocious Australian monster known as a Yowie, Australia’s answer to Bigfoot, and a savage battle for survival ensues. Thrown into the mix is a feisty park ranger named Rhiannon (Melanie Serafin) and a burnt-out ex-homicide detective named McNab (Vernon Wells).
