Creature From Black Lake (Demon of the Lake) Reviews
Two scientists travel to Louisiana (instead of Arkansas) to look for a Big Foot creature in the swamps. It doesn't have the mockumentary style of the Boggy Creek and as it follows university scientists rather than the citizens this film actually has more in common with Boggy Creek 2 including the bearded swamp hermit and the mistrusting small town locals. However this film was made almost a decade before Boggy Creek 2.
It's not surprising you get to see very little of the creature until the very end. Scenes with the monster are very spaced out, most of what you see is silhouettes and glimpses of fur. Then when you do see the creature you're bound to laugh out loud. The ape suite is so bad they should have just kept it in the shadows.
So there's not much to say about this film other than I though Boggy Creek was better and I suggest you watch that instead of this or at least watch Boggy Creek before you watch this one.
I wish I had seen this when I was nine years old; I'd have really loved it. Cinematographer Dean Cundey shot John Carpenter's early films and "Ilsa, Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks" before going to work for Spielberg.
It was not enough to keep me in my seat. I left halfway thru...
