A little too apt?
24 May 2020 | by CobraMistSee all my reviews

The Legend of Boggy Creek excelled at painting a picture of a small, rural town that was on the edge of a vast and seemingly mysterious wilderness. It captured small town life from the late 20th century as well as capturing the wonder of what might be lurking in the undeveloped portions of the North America.

The Legacy of Boggy Creek follows this premise but now in the 21st century and the image it paints, while accurate, is far less magical. The film accurately assesses that large portions of undeveloped wilderness are far less prevalent as civilization has expanded in all directions. While this is very apt, it makes small town America feel less like an outpost on the edge of something unknown and more like .... small town America. Low population, limited economic opportunities, etc. The locals seemed less quaint then their 70's counterparts.

Most of the accounts also lack the tabloid-style flavor that the original offered and instead come off as legitimate sightings by mostly reasonable people. The creature itself is, admittedly, pretty incredible to behold and feels like it would belong in the trashy, cult favorite Suburban Sasquatch. Lastly, I'm going to guess that the movie was lacking in runtime as they decided to include a lot of b-roll footage of pigs, trees, and ponds all while accompanied with music.

Overall, I'm not sure I'd recommend it and there is little that stands out after having viewed it.
