Decent Southern Exploitation

Swamp Girl (1971)

** (out of 4)

Deep in the swamps of Georgia, legend has it that there's a blonde woman (Simone Griffeth) who lurks in the wilderness. Many people have claimed to have seen her yet there's no real proof. That is until one day when the sheriff goes chasing after her and finally manages to talk to her. Soon after a pair of criminals kill her Pa and force her to take them through the swamp.

SWAMP GIRL certainly isn't a long-lost classic and it's certainly not Oscar-material but I'm pretty sure you already know that. During the 1970's there were all sorts of Southern exploitation pictures that managed to find a spot on various drive-in screens and that's exactly where the majority of them belong. This film here certainly isn't the best of the sub-genre but at the same time it's far from the worst.

I think the best thing this one has going for it are the actual locations. The majority of the running time takes place in the swamp where we get plenty of shots of various wildlife and this here is certainly the highlight of the picture. The setting is obviously just right for the story and I also thought Griffeth was good enough for the role. With that said, there's no question that this is pretty much lacking any sort of real story and calling it a well-made movie would be a mistake.

Still, if you're a fan of these type of no-budget pictures then there's certainly much worse out there so this one here is worth watching out.
