This movie is a pretty interesting piece concerning the sightings of a bigfoot type creature in Arkansas in the 70's. This one plays much the blair witch project. It is based on true stories and includes many of the real people involved.

I ain't going in no woods never again!!!

"I've had an interest in Bigfoot since I was a little kid, and BOGGY CREEK was one of the first experiences I'd had with Bigfoot Docudramas. There's a part in the movie where the narrator says "I was a boy when I first heard him scream. It scared me then, and it scares me now." Know what? It scared the bejeezus out of me too, and it still does! There's a lot of behind the scenes stuff about the making of BOGGY CREEK that makes me wonder about the integrity of its director, but personal politics aside, this is one fine example of why at 33 years of age I STILL won't go wandering around in the woods. Sure it's just a guy in a ratty monster suit, and the reenactments are sometimes on the cheezy side, but there's something about this movie that gets under your skin and stays there. If you like the Sasquatch like I like the Sasquatch, then throw away that godawful fourth-generation VHS copy and pick up this DVD. It's about as good as BOGGY CREEK is ever gonna look, and with it on disc you can jump right to your favorite scenes. Mine's the one where the monster grabs at the guy sitting on the toilet. :)"
What a difference

"this new version of LEGEND OF.., WOW, what a difference from the initial crummy release of this movie on dvd. Make sure you get this one, the picture is a hundred times clearer, the sound is so much better, I felt transported back in time, like I was watching it on the big screen. The shots of the monster are super clear and I can't express enough how this clear version makes a huge Total different watching experience then the first dvd release of this classic. For those of you who have the crummy first release of the dvd, with the mysterios white dot in the right corner of the entire movie...guess what....it's gone!!!on this new clearer, so much clearer DVD!!!!"

"Okay, you can toss your bootlegs, the greatest Bigfoot Docu-drama of all time is -finally- available again, and in DVD for the first time (legit, anyhow.) No, the print isn't fantastic, no it's not in widescreen, but it's THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK, people! C'mon! You get to hear a guy wonder if maybe an orangutan was in his sweet potato patch! You get to listen to another guy who got part of his foot shot off in a freak boating accident! You get to ponder why so many people in Arkansas seem to be named "Crabtree"!! And that way cool SONG! How many other bigfoot movies have a love-theme for the MONSTER?!! (And there's another song about...another guy named "Crabtree", but hey...)In all honesty, I'd have LOVED to have seen this restored and released in widescreen. However, I share the opinion that a widescreen print of the film may not -exist- now. At any rate, the DVD is head and shoulders above any VHS copy that's been released to date. Some of the colors come in like gangbusters at the least expected times, and you can actually see the grain on the tree bark in the darker scenes, so this is the best transfer this film has ever had, without doubt. My biggest complaint is that annoying little white speck about halfway up on the right side of the middle of the picture. What the heck IS that?"The Legend of Boggy Creek" is one of my absolute -favorite- films from my childhood. It has withstood viewing after viewing, it doesn't get old, it's just it's own sorta good, clean FUN. There's never been anything like it, before or since.Gotta love that song..."
