Imagine "The Beast of Yucca Flats" with an Irish brogue and you've got this below-average, not very horrific horror tale about a reanimated "Bog Body" (i.e. an ancient corpse that's been preserved in a peat bog) picking off a group of lost travelers in the Irish countryside. The so-called "Bog Body" (played by a big hulking bald guy) is one of the least scary movie monsters in recent memory. He looks like a confused pro wrestler who got off on the wrong bus. Vinnie Jones of "X-Men" and "Midnight Meat Train" fame shows up midway thru the movie as a hunter who knows a thing or two about reanimated bog bodies but by then it's too late to save the film. Avoid!!!

Legend of the what?

"Let me tell you, this movie had to be the worst movie I have seen in a long time. it was no "bog body" roaming around killing. It actually looked like Popeye the Sailor. My suggestion to all is to steer totally away from this Vinnie Jones flop. Pick up either The Condemned or The Midnight Meat Train instead. Way better movies. Sorry Vinnie it just plain sucked!!!!! This would have got a zero star rating if I could have done it."
This was halarious!

"This was a funny movie! At least a half dozen times, I laughed so hard, I could barely breathe. Three groups of two people end up in the same small cabin or shack. You have people talk about death stories, one taxi driver guy saying "he was driving some girl somewhere, got mad because she didn't have the money, so he threw her out. Then 40 miles later, he hears this thumping. It was her, being dragged along the side of the car. he said, I guess her coat got stuck when he closed the door. HAH AHAH! How can you get your coat caught in the door, and not open the door or tell the driver, who by the way, is the one who opened the door to throw her out, to say, hey, don't go, I am caught.
The hunter saying, I tried to protect this guy, then at the next frame you see the flashback of him shooting the guy, HAHA HAHA!! FUNNY film. Oh my, what a funny show. You have to make fun of it. It's the only way to enjoy it. Many more funny moments.
Well worth the one dollar rental at Red Box."
Low budget horror flick with few effects

"This movie was made in Ireland with a very , very low budget. At least it was shot on film and the actors are all decent. But it's budget is so small that the bog body drinks water and reforms into a huge guy who then kills people. Supposedly the victims all did terrible things and the bog wants them. The bog people were usually sacrifice victims that were killed for various reasons. the Celtic people did this from about 1,000 B.C. or so until around 200 A.D. or so. Some people think that they were from the same tribes , but I personally believe that most of them were from rival tribes usually. In this movie a hunter is going around killing the risen bog people , only some of them are recent dead people , this is not explained and the whole idea of them out there is wasted because the movie is mainly about one ancient bog victim who is hunting the cast down. One of which is a awful american woman who is nasty and the epitomy of the rude arrogant stereotype that some people see all Americans. There are a few like her though and they could be any Nationality; they are just ruthless bosses. Sadly we are even denied seeing her get her punishment in any real detail. The whole flick is mainly about the one bog person and his hunting of people. It's just an ok movie at best , it could have been worse though. But it will leave zombie fans none too happy I fear as the dead look alive completely."
