The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972)
88 min.
Directed by Charles Pierce.
With Vern Stierman, Mary-Beth Circe, Buddy Crabtree, Jeff Crabtree, John Gates, Lucy Grantham, John Nixon.
Completely enjoyable documentary-style Bigfoot horror.

A sasquatch-like monster roams the Arkansas backwoods and terrorizes the rural folk who live on the fringes of the swamplands.

Constructed using a combination of dramatic 're-creation' sequences and interviews, this is laced throughout with a convincing atmosphere of doom and suspense.

Low budget with no blood..but utterly original and effective.

Followed by a sequel of sorts Return to Boggy Creek (1977).
