A documentary-style drama which questions the existence of a monster in an Arkansas swamp. It is really more of a glimpse at lower-class swamp culture from the seventies, though, than a monster flick.Written by

There have been two sequels, in 1977 and 1984. The second one was directed by the original "Boggy Creek" director, Charles B. Pierce. There was also a remake in 2010, a documentary in 2016 and another remake has been in the planning stages. See more »
When Mr. Turner and the Ford brothers are on the porch shooting at the monster, Turner's flashlight alternates between a regular size flashlight and the large lantern flashlight the Constable gives them later. See more »
Many versions of the film exist.
some mainly the 85 or 86 min versions omit the final 3 min with the narrator walking through his old house. it just shows the police car riding past the sign saying, Fouke.
in the 90 min version, it omits the brief scene of the monster's face at the end of the film.
some fo the prints are blurry and cut out the monsters at some scenes.
Most DVDs present the film in a pan and scan full-screen versions. See more »
Minor drive-in classic from B movie director Charles B. Pierce that's made in the style of a documentary.
For years the folks of Fouke, Arkansas have had encounters with a terrifying Big Foot-type creature that dwells in the local swamps.
Director Pierce well over comes his low-budget limitations on this film by giving it some terrific atmosphere. It's a great narrative documentary that benefits from the use of the raw back woods locations of Arkansas, which gives off a great feeling moodiness and the unknown. It also conveys a nicely authentic look at the rural culture. The movie really has no plot, but there are some truly dark re-enactment sequences that boast some great tension!
The cast is composed of locals who often portray themselves, adding call the more to the documentary feel.
Over all, Ledgend of Boggy Creek is an interesting and occasionally creepy piece of film-making.
*** out of ****
