Return to Boggy Creek (1977)

1/2 (out of 4)

Horrible follow-up to THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK has three children getting stuck in the woods while a hurricane blows through. While out there they run into a Bigfoot like monster known as Big Bay-Ty and unlike the legends, he's actually not harmful at all. Okay, who in their right mind thought it was a good idea to try and turn a drive-in hit into some sort of weird Disney movie? Yes folks, the monster here is actually a good guy with a big heart who helps the poor children when they are in need. I'm really not sure what the producers were thinking but this thing is just a complete disaster from the word go and for the life of me it never makes any sense as to what the filmmakers were trying to do. I mean, did they really think people wanted to see a Bigfoot movie trying to act like Walt Disney? I'm sure this could have worked but not when you handle it as poorly as this film did. For starters, the majority of the running time has the three kids sitting around either talking, fishing or not really doing anything. Two old folks sit around and talk about whether or not the monster is real. Two of the kid's mother (Dawn Wells) constantly calls the children her babies yet she has no problem with the young ones going into the swamp with deadly snakes and alligators. The editing is horrid, the music score awful and there's a really annoying title song running throughout, which will drive you crazy. The monster looks decent but sadly you don't get to see it too much and when you do it's usually at night. The only reason to check this out is if you're interested in seeing Wells outside Gilligan's Island or wanting to see Dana Plato who plays one of the children. RETURN TO BOGGY CREEK actually manages to make the first film look like a classic.
