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
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 »

I'm a devotee of bad films ("Manos, the Hands of Fate" is one of my favorites; no, seriously, I really like it!), but "Bog" was just a bit too dumb, even for me. Oh, I don't deny that it had it's moments. But in between those moments was a lot of dead space. I was surprised by the "love scene" between the film's two leads. I think this is, without question, the oldest love scene I've ever witnessed! Now, it's not graphic by any stretch of the imagination, but how often do you see a 50-year-old woman making out with a 60-year-old man? Heck, how often do you see a 50-year-old woman who is supposed to be our eye-candy? I've got to give the movie props for striking a blow for the geriatric community!
