Storyline

When a local begins fishing with dynamite in Bog Lake, something a bit larger pops to the surface: a green, bug-eyed mutant monster awakened from a long sleep, which promptly begins killing and eating fishermen who stumble across its lair. When biologist Ginny Glenn discovers the creature's evolutionary nature, the local sheriff decides to use most methods to destroy the tenacious beast. Written by Ørnås

Trivia

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, but it was not released theatrically until 1983. It received few bookings and ended up on video in 1984. See more »

Look, look! Hey, look over there! Look!
29 August 1999 | by (Chicago, lllinois, USA) – See all my reviews

There must be many different ways to look at BOG. I, however, can't find any of them. One has to wonder why the creators of this cinematic gem never chose to insert a "The" before the title, why an actress obviously plays two parts, or why the titular "bog" in question is actually a lake. Possibly the only defining moments in this film can be seen during the preview. Pay special attention to the cop who, completely off-cue, screams out "Look, look! Hey, look over there! Look!" Now there's some classic dialogue.
