Andrea Hutchison II,
Through the experiences of two amateur Bigfoot researchers in Appalachian Ohio, we see how the power of a dream can bring two men together and provide a source of hope and meaning that transcend the harsh realities of life in a dying steel town.

Director / producer Charles B. Pierce received funding for the film by borrowing $160,000 from an Arkansas trucking company, and filmed it on an older-model movie camera the production acquired. See more »
In the scene where Mr. Turner and the Ford brothers are on the porch shooting at the monster, Turner's flashlight alternates between a regular size flashlight and a large lantern flashlight (the same lantern flashlight the Constable gives them later). See more »
Minor drive-in classic from B movie director Charles B. Pierce that's made in the style of a documentary.
For years the folks of Fouke, Arkansas have had encounters with a terrifying Big Foot-type creature that dwells in the local swamps.
Director Pierce well over comes his low-budget limitations on this film by giving it some terrific atmosphere. It's a great narrative documentary that benefits from the use of the raw back woods locations of Arkansas, which gives off a great feeling moodiness and the unknown. It also conveys a nicely authentic look at the rural culture. The movie really has no plot, but there are some truly dark re-enactment sequences that boast some great tension!
The cast is composed of locals who often portray themselves, adding call the more to the documentary feel.
Over all, Ledgend of Boggy Creek is an interesting and occasionally creepy piece of film-making.
