A teenager mourning the death of her mother become possessed by a demon who's been preying on her female ancestors for centuries. Years later, the demon starts to take over her body, mentally and physically.
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. See more »

Additional location info
Some of the filming was also done in Lake Tomahawk Wisconsin.. specifically the old airport control tower which was used in exterior shots as the police station. There is also an aerial shot of downtown Minoqua (nearby Lake Tomahawk) in the opening sequence.This is currently enjoying something of a grassroots revival in Lake Tomahawk (July 2008) Legend has it that the cast and crew spent a significant amount of time imbibing at the local bars...Which might explain some of the acting. and Yes I can confirm that this is truly one of the worst movies ever made but totally brilliant because of it. With regards to the editing. It is so bad that I had originally thought it was the vintage vcr that it was playing on that was causing the tape to freeze but soon realized that it must be an "artsy" editing job.Reading the other comment about the editing I now realize that it is even worse than I had imagined which only adds to the aura of shoddiness and thus to it's unintentional brilliance
