|Strong performances truly buoy this above average creature feature.
Two Chicago college students (Fimple and Carson) travel to the swamplands of Louisiana in search of a sasquatch-like beast reportedly mucking about the bayou. But the duo's anthropology endeavor gets more lively than anticipated when they discover the critter...in person.
A believable and likable cast graces this adept drive in horror, with a low budget grittiness that enhances the atmosphere of humid horror. The seldom glimpsed hairy one sees some screen time in the well done (& surprisingly suspenseful) climax. Great late nite fare worth seeking out.
Also known either as Demon of the Lake or Terror in the Swamp.
