The Capture of Bigfoot is a 1979 American movie, directed by Bill Rebane and starring Janus Raudkivi, Randolph Rebane, and Stafford Morgan. The movie revolves around a group of researchers who set out to capture and study the elusive Bigfoot creature in the wilds of northern Wisconsin. Paranormal investigator Dr. Tom Crawford (Janus Raudkivi) leads the expedition, joined by a team of skilled trackers and hunters. Their mission is to capture the creature alive and bring it back to civilization for examination and study.

The group first sets up camp in the woods, where they begin to detect signs of Bigfoot's presence. They find enormous footprints, hear strange howls and cries, and even catch glimpses of the creature in the distance. At one point, they come across a massive, abandoned cave system that they believe could be the creature's home.

Despite some tense moments and setbacks, the team manages to set up a trap to catch the creature, using a large net and bait to lure it in. They finally succeed in capturing Bigfoot, and prepare to transport it back to civilization for further study.

However, things quickly go awry. The group soon realizes that transporting the creature won't be as easy as they thought. Bigfoot proves to be more intelligent and aggressive than they had anticipated, and it becomes apparent that he won't go down without a fight. The team struggles to keep the creature restrained, while a local hunter (Stafford Morgan) seeks to take Bigfoot for himself, for the fame and fortune he believes it will bring him.

As the tension escalates and the situation spirals out of control, the group must confront the reality of their actions. They are left to question whether capturing and studying such a rare and exotic creature is worth the risk and harm done to the creature itself.

The Capture of Bigfoot is a classic example of the creature feature genre, blending elements of horror, science fiction, and adventure. The movie makes use of its rural setting to create a sense of isolation and vulnerability, as the characters are forced to confront the unknown and the supernatural.

Despite its low budget and occasionally clunky dialogue, the movie succeeds in creating an eerie, suspenseful atmosphere. The filmmakers make creative use of camera angles and lighting to create moments of tension and suspense, and the scenes of the creature in action are suitably thrilling.

Overall, The Capture of Bigfoot is a fun and engaging movie that showcases some of the best of the creature feature genre. It's a must-watch for fans of classic monster movies, and a testament to the enduring appeal of Bigfoot folklore.

The Capture of Bigfoot is a 1979 adventure movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 32 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.4.
