A Message for Readers for the Holidays

The holidays can be a joyous time, a time where we can celebrate our year and be with our families. We pig out, we indulge in gifts, and we also reflect on our successes and failures. But for many it can be a very tough time. It’s a time where we still grieving the ones we’ve lost, are reminded of those we love that couldn’t be here to enjoy the holidays with us. For those people out there that don’t see the holidays as a joyous time and think they need some serious help, we know how it feels.

There’s absolutely no shame in getting help and seeking counseling from a professional in times of great stress and or pain. Especially when you have to endure Christmas, and or Hanukkah. It’s okay to not be happy during the holidays, it’s okay to be in pain and it’s okay to admit that you need help, and you need help from someone who can remind you that life is worth living and this too, shall pass.

No matter what happens in your life, you deserve good health. You deserve to have peace of mind. You matter. You’re wanted. People care about you. Most of all, you’re not alone. Not in the world, and not in suffering.

If you’re contemplating suicide please consider the Suicide Prevention Hotline, right now.

Happy holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Fun Festivus for the Rest of Us, and Happy New Year!

Thanks for another wonderful year from Cinema Crazed.

Cinema Crazed’s Phil Hall Meets Bigfoot in New Book “The Weirdest Movie Ever Made”

BearManor Media is proud to announce the release of “The Weirdest Movie Ever Made: The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film,” a new book by Cinema Crazed editor and columnist Phil Hall. The book will be available in all book retail channels beginning October 1st for the suggested retail price of $24.95 for the hardcover edition and $14.95 for the softcover edition.

On October 20th 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin emerged from a forest in Northern California with 59 seconds of grainy, shaky, silent 16mm film that offered documentary evidence of the existence of the Sasquatch, a creature of Native American folklore. Although neither Patterson nor Gimlin had any previous experience in filmmaking or zoology, they presented their remarkable footage as the first motion picture evidence to confirm the existence of the elusive Sasquatch.

However, not everyone was convinced by the imagery on the Patterson-Gimlin Film. Additional doubt was generated by the strange story behind the film’s creation. Over the years, odd rumors emerged about the film, including the story of an Academy Award-winning make-up artist’s alleged role in assembling the creature seen on camera.

Film journalist Phil Hall traces the convoluted history of how Patterson and Gimlin supposedly wound up in the right place at the right time with their camera, and how they brought their weird little film into the scientific community and American popular culture. While the debate over the authenticity of the Patterson-Gimlin Film continues to percolate, few would question the effectiveness of how this piece of celluloid brought forth an unlikely sensation lovingly dubbed Bigfoot.

“The Weirdest Move Ever Made: The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film” can be pre-ordered from BearManor Media.
