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 »
Old, moody, and atmospheric. I like that. *** out of 5
I will go ahead and say I realize that the songs featured in this movie are absolute cheese. This really takes away from an otherwise realistic documentary like film.
It's really moody and atmospheric, you really come to believe that the things you are seeing in the film are real.
There are also some very funny moments like toothless old men talking about the creature. The songs I mentioned before are a real hoot. But overall, this isn't a film I watch for a few giggles. It's quite an interesting film. I've never seen the sequels, but hope to some day.
It's not for all tastes, but for the fan of 70's horror nostalgia, it can't be missed.
