Inside Rob Lowe’s ‘near-death experience’ with Bigfoot after ‘hearing monkey hoots and spotting glowing orbs in the woods’
ROB Lowe said he had a “near-death experience” with Bigfoot while filming his supernatural docuseries.
Throughout his long career, the actor has worn many hats and appeared in multiple movies and TV movies.
In 2017 Lowe starred in The Lowe Files which examined unsolved mysteries across the United States.
The show ran for nine episodes and also featured Lowe’s sons John Owen and Matthew.
During his brief time as a paranormal investigator, Lowe and his sons explored poltergeists, alien abductions and cryptids – one of those experiences that nearly cost the actor his life.
While venturing into the mountains of Oklahoma, Lowe described an “incredible encounter” with Bigfoot that left him terrified.
Lowe, who has been interested in Bigfoot for years, said the fascination began after watching the 1972 film The Legend of Boggy Creek as a child.
“There’s very little I can say with a totally straight face that I’ve waited my whole life to do,” Lowe told his sons during the show’s third episode.
“Going to find Bigfoot is one of them. Every time I’ve tried camping throughout my life, I’ve stayed up all night hoping to find Sasquatch.
Two episodes were devoted to chasing the ape-like creature through Northern California before heading to Oklahoma.
The crew also teamed up with Finding Bigfoot host Matt Moneymaker in hopes of luring Sasquatch out of hiding using a series of calls and punches.
In an interview after filming the docuseries, Lowe shared details of the harrowing camping trip.
“We found ourselves 200 miles away in the Ozark Mountains, where no human would ever be at three in the morning surrounded by creatures that made that noise,” he said, the creature’s grunts during a appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Lowe said, “I was lying on the floor thinking I was going to be killed,” before admitting he knew he looked like “a Hollywood lunatic.”
However, Brian Brown, a member of the North American Wood Ape Conservancy (NAWAC) who accompanies the Lowe family on the trip, shared his version of events in a blog entry on the organization’s website titled My Long, Strange Night. With Rob Lowe.
Brown corrected some of Lowe’s statements, saying the trip took place in the Ouachita Mountains rather than the Ozarks.
Brown admitted to hearing a few strange noises as well, including one he said was so clear he assumed the production crew had faked it.
“Some of us were hearing faint monkey-like gasping sounds. Ho-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Quiet but apparently close enough,” he wrote.
Glowing orbs were captured on the crew’s thermal camera, which Brown said “changed from a marginal appearance of eyes to a more person-like appearance with flashlights.”
In the show, the mystery was “solved” after it was revealed that the lights and noises came from a group of Earth clubbers.
Years after production of The Lowe Files ended, Lowe still remembers it fondly.
However, when asked whether or not he believed he had met Bigfoot, Lowe replied, “I don’t know” in a 2020 episode of The Joe Rogan Experience.
“I mean, here’s the thing, like the tagline of The Lowe Files, is it’s more fun to believe, and that’s really where I get off.”
