The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972) – Yeah… Why Was This Made?
1972’s Legend of Boggy Creek is supposed to be a documentary. A shitty, shitty documentary about a Bigfoot like creature that had been claimed to have been seen in and around Fouke, Arkansas since the 1950s.
Starring people from the actual town that claimed to have seen and or heard the Boggy Creek monster.
Low budget, bad narrating and especially bad music married together and then slapped on a crappy script with crappy filmography and you have this movie.
Even if you believe in Bigfoot and Bigfoot like creatures, look elsewhere. I feel greasy and like the worst of the 1970s came spilling out of my monitor.
This feels like an episode of the old Leonard Nimoy series, In Search Of with all the talent and entertainment sucked right out of it.
Because I am so bored with this movie here is what Wikipedia says about this movie:
The film, which claims to be a true story, sets out to detail the existence of the “Fouke Monster”, a bigfoot-like creature that has reportedly been seen by residents of a small Arkansas community since the 1950s. It is described as having a foul odor, completely covered in reddish-brown hair and having 7 toes and also known by leaving tracks found in beanfields.
Several locals from the small town of Fouke, Arkansasrecall their stories, often appearing as themselves, claiming that the creature has killed several large hogs as well as other animals. In one scene, a kitten is shown as having been “scared to death” by the creature. The narrator informs us that while people have shot at the creature in the past, it has always managed to escape. In another scene, hunters attempt to pursue the creature with dogs, but the dogs refuse to give chase. A police constable states that while driving home one night, the creature suddenly ran across the road in front of him.
In a later sequence, culled from the actual newspaper accounts inspiring the film, the creature is shown menacing a family in a remote country house. After being fired upon, the creature attacks, sending one family member to the hospital
Available freely online, if you want to waste your time, then go ahead and watch this crap.
