A documentary-style drama which questions the existence of a monster in an Arkansas swamp. It is really more of a glimpse at lower-class swamp culture from the seventies, though, than a monster flick.Written by

On August 1, 2018, it was announced that Pamela Pierce Barcelou (the director's daughter) has partnered with the George Eastman Museum to restore the film in 4K resolution for an eventual Blu-Ray and theatrical release. It will be the first time the film has been seen in its proper, Techniscope format since the original theatrical release. The restoration is being performed using the original negative from Technicolor and original prints. The elements will also be stored and cared for by the museum. See more »

Many versions of the film exist.
some mainly the 85 or 86 min versions omit the final 3 min with the narrator walking through his old house. it just shows the police car riding past the sign saying, Fouke.
in the 90 min version, it omits the brief scene of the monster's face at the end of the film.
some fo the prints are blurry and cut out the monsters at some scenes.
Most DVDs present the film in a pan and scan full-screen versions. See more »
I've always believed in the existence of an 8 foot tall, hairy, foul-odored monster lurking in every wooded area in the U.S. This movie only confirmed that.
'The Legend of Boggy Creek' is a hair-raising, thought-provoking account in documentary-like format similar to 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (see my comment), and is just as scary. I'm not sure if this is the one, but what really made my spine tingle is the simulation of the sounds this creature makes. A sound that I would never want to hear again.
A harrowing portrait of the horrifying realization that there IS something out there not human. This movie did not get any recognition, but it doesn't need it. Those who do watch will recognize only one thing...TERROR!
Take heed to the old saying: 'DON'T GO IN THE WOODS! Or even the swamp! 'The Legend of Boggy Creek' is merely a frightful depiction of the things we fear that are out there...for they really are.
