The film was shot in 1978. A story in the August 18, 1978 issue of Boxoffice Magazine said the producer was Michelle Marshall; the monster was being played by a 30-year-old man who was living near Radisson, Wisconsin by the name of Thomas "Jeff" Schwad, who was 6'7", weighed 247, and took size 16 shoes. Shooting was around the Harshaw, Wisconsin area. Milwaukee actors Carol Terry, Glen Voros, Lou Hunt and Denise Bedner were in the cast. Theatrical release was expected in October (1978). See more »

"Bog" is a complex movie of many parts, what some would call a mystery wrapped in a riddle, enveloped in an enigma, drenched in hatred. However, despite the immediate allure of this modern retelling of the classic tale, the dip thirsty bog creature soon chaffes beyond all previously recorded levels. The scene where the creature emerges from his filthy lair and proceeds to hurl wildly outrageous claims at the townsfolk is one thing - however, when the dip cups begin to pile up and the horrifying creature pulls out the guitar, it is almost too much to watch. The viewer is left to ponder the wild fabrications of this primordial monster and cannot help but feel the pain in this fratted-out lair of terrible run-on stories and hair blowdriers. The viewer can only be left as a battered, broken shell of their previous self, completely devoid of all value and fully revirginified. Fantastic performances by Liam and the Firecracker.
