Bigfoot in garbage bin movie. What is it?

About 15-20 years ago I saw a horror movie, but the only thing I remember about it was a scene in a dark alley where there was this Sasquatch-like monster hiding in one of those alley garbage bins with the heavy-lift lid. Someone lift up the lid to throw something away and the monster grabbed him and did his business.

What is this movie?

BTW, if anyone ever watched Sci-Fi's scare tactics there was an episode where these kids were stuck in an RV and being terrorized by a Sasquatch. The Sasquatch in that episode kind of resembles the Sasquatch in the garbage can.

Thanks.

Definitely "Harry and the Hendersons"

(but it's probably not as scary as you remember)

cheapskate, are you sure it's "Harry and the Hendersons?" That was a family-friendly film. The film I'm referring to must be a horror film, because the monster hiding in the garbage bin killed the guy who opened it. That doesn't seem like Harry's M.O., although I could be wrong. The film I remember must be 15-25 years old.

I was just kidding about Harry... he's harmless.

But now I feel guilty because you took the time to reply...

Could be one of these four movies... they're the only ones that fit the time frame.

Thanks cheapskate and DonnachaOne. These are some good references to start with. Hopefully this film exists and wasn't a childhood hallucination.

Boy... is my face red!

You know... I never realised how many Bigfoot movies there were... and they're all terrible!

I think the thread title says it all; these Bigfoot movies should stay in the garbage bin...
