Audience Reviews for The Legend of Boggy Creek

This film is single-handedly responsible for about 90% of my childhood nightmares. Supposedly based on actual events that happened not far from where I grew up, Legend of Boggy Creek is a series of reenactments and staged interviews with eye witnesses. Here it is, almost 40 years later, and I STILL like watching this one late at night with all the lights off.

The Blair Witch Project of its time. Stories abound about Bigfoot, a huge furry manbeast that wanders the forests of the Ark-La-Tex. Lots of interviews (rumored to be fake) about sightings and "photographic evidence" all convinced 1970s audiences that the proceedings were completely real. It therefore did HUGE business and was THE movie to see.

AAAAAAHHHHH My fucking eyes and ears. This was horrible. It tried to play itself as some kind of mockumentary, but a very poorly made one. There isn't a single moment of tension thanks to the terrible acting and intrusive voice-over. Some guy literally talks throughout the whole thing. It will give interview type moments and then just a bit of normal narrative. It's a poor effort, but one that could be improved upon.

Probably one of the first films to truly terrify me as a kid! Everything about this movie is cool, from the atmospheric photography, the engaging narration and the kooky music. "Boggy Creek" takes "Blair Witch" and "The Last Broadcast" and wipes the floor with the both of 'em! I only wish somebody, somewhere could secure the rights to this forgotten gem and put out a DVD release. Let's go back in the bottoms!!!!!
