Moral of the story, killing an evil man, Hitler, doesn't kill his cruel ideas once they've spread like the plague and that's what matters. Conversely, literally killing 'squatch (metaphor for an idea, yet to be fully accepted and embraced by the public) did indeed end the spreading of his actual plague before it was too late. It's better to kill bad ideas before they spread than to kill good mythical creatures. Squash evil ideas, before they infect minds and spread live a disease. Mind blown...

Spoiler Alert: 'squatch ralphs into his killers mouth and that's the film highlight.

Some of the scenes delivered on the so bad it's good that I was hoping for, but not as often as I hoped for. I'm undecided on whether the curious juxtaposition of the shy, talented killer, pacifist with a tender/broken heart lives up to the so bad it's good standard or not. I do appreciate that both 'squatch and his killer are both pacifists caught in a bad situation, like a man dueling his spirit animal whose hard fought, tragic death helped turned the man's life around allowing him to come to terms with death, loss and making the most of life after so many decades of mourning. While the many flashbacks were easy enough to follow, were annoyingly out of order and maybe too numerous. Film should have been less cryptic with it's deep ideas and instead more apparent. Considering the context it's easy to overlook the insights. Really, had to spend time reflecting to get how deep of a message the story holds, very cryptic and easy to miss.
