Night Claws

Synopsis: A small town is being terrorized by a killer Bigfoot. One that is blood thirsty, vicious and kills without warning and without discrimination. A scientist by the name of Sarah Evans (Leilani Sarelle) shows up to help the town's sheriff (Reb Brown) and his deputy girlfriend Roberta (Sherrie Rose) hunt this thing down and put an end to the killings. At the same time, Hunter Crawford (David Campbell) is a thug-like character who along with his two henchmen, is hunting the creature himself, for his own personal gain and he does not care who he has to go through to accomplish this. Enter Charlie Parker (Ted Prior) a tough east coast type who is on a survivalist camping trip, led by the seasoned survivalist Sharon Farmer (Tara Sanford Kleinpeter) at the behest of his young trophy wife (Alissa Koenig) and whom, by no fault of his own, winds up being used as bait for the creature, by Hunter. But there is more at work here than meets the eye. A sinister plot is afoot and at its center is the ve

Did you hear that?

Hear what?


That animal.

There's something out there, Donny.

Baby, come on...

Hey... it's nothing.

It's probably just like a wolf,

or a bear or something.

Alright, don't worry, don't worry.

Look, we're in the car.

No one's gonna bother us.

Are you sure?

Yeah baby, I'm sure.


Look at me baby,

come on... come on.

It's okay, really.

Let's finish what we started.


I know you heard that!

I know you did!


Yeah I did.

Then go out there, and check things out.

Or we're not finishing anything!

Okay, okay, Jesus!

Damn it!



And talk about losing

your head over a girl.

That was a kind of sick

thing you're saying, man.

Why, man?

Just kidding around.



So... what the hell

happened here, Roberta?

Oh, good morning to you too, Joe.

I'm sorry, I haven't

had my coffee yet.

What's going on?

So far, best we can tell,

we got two bodies here.

The best we can tell?

We got a lot of pieces here, Sheriff.

- That looks like the old ridge kid's car.

- Yeah.

We confirmed that with the

ID's with that other wallet.

Donny Ulrich and Sandy Sanders.

Just a couple of teenagers

out for a little hanky panky.

Well, let's keep that

out of the report, ok.

It's bad enough I got to tell

the parents their kids are dead.

- Yeah.

- Alright.

- Come on. Let's check that out.

- Okay.

Open it.

That's enough...

Close it.

What the hell could have done that?

I don't know.

The coroner said it

must be some kind of animal.

What I've seen...

I have to agree.

Yeah, but what kind of animal does that

to their prey and then doesn't eat it?

Only one kind I can think of...

The human kind...

Bingo .

So what? Think that we got some kind

of serial killer wacko on our hands?

I don't know what I think right

now Roberta. I really don't.

Just kinda thinking out loud...

let the coroner report tell us.

But in the mean time...

We should shut down the parks

and the campgrounds just to be safe.


You got it, Sheriff.

So... we still on for dinner tonight?

Was that tonight?

Hey, I was just kidding.

Yeah, we're on for dinner tonight.

I don't know what I'm

going to do with you Joe.

I really don't.

Yeah, I got two ex-wives

saying the same thing.

Mm... On that note,

I think I'll get back to work.

- Good idea.

- Yeah.


Come over here !

What I can do for you, Sheriff?

I want a pictures of that.

Good ones. From every angle.

Then I want you to email them to

zoos, museums and universities...

and anywhere else you can think of...

until we can find somebody who can

hopefully identify what did that.

You got it, Sheriff.


And send some to my office too.

Will do.

Anything else?


Tell me what happened here.

Well ah...

Never mind.

- Just get the pictures taken care of.

- Yes sir.

We just wait for them to finish up.

Then go down there and pick up the trail.

That could take hours, boss.

I'm sure it will.

And I don't care.

Why don't we just cap the whole

misdemeanor and go about our business?

Because that would make a mess.

And I don't like messes.

Besides, to do something

stupid like that will have

a thousand state troopers

out here looking for us.

Is that what you want?

I guess not, no.

That's why I don't pay you to think.

So don't!

That Sheriff gets in

my way, he'll get hit.

Not, right, now...

Let him do his job. He might

just take us right to our prey.

- You got it?

- Yes, sir.

- You got it?

- Yes, sir. I got it.

Okay, everybody gather around!
