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 »
As a youngster growing up in Arkansas this was very much a real experience for me, while we lived about three hours from the area where this is supposed to have happened it was a very exciting time. I can still remember reading the newspaper and watching the local news each night to hear the latest on the "Fouke Creek Monster" as it was called. It was particulary exciting when they reported on the incident where the monster reached through the window. I really enjoyed this movie because of it's homespun quality not in spite of it.
