The Legend Of Boggy Creek (1972)(Charles B. Pierce)


In 1972 Charles Pierce, an ad salesman from Texarkana, borrowed $160,000 from a friend who owned a car dealership, to make a movie about a local legend in Arkansas, that he had heard about growing up. Armed with a hand-held camera, and the local residents, who played themselves, Pierce set out to create a pseudo-documentary about recent encounters with a Bigfoot-like creature in and around the small town of Fouke.

Amazingly enough, Pierce, with no experience at making movies, was able to create a very believable and scary movie. His amateur actors, who obviously drew inspiration from their real-life encounters, display such fear, that the viewer really gets taken in by their raw emotion.

Pierce's camera work and editing really creates a genuine feeling of terror. His wisdom in only showing the monster from a distance, and in the shadows, adds to the mystery and the overall eerie feeling of the film.

There has been renewed interest in "The Legend of Boggy Creek" due to a recent episode of "Monster Quest" which focused on the "Fouke Monster" aka "The Swamp Stalker of Boggy Creek". The program showed several scenes from the film and also featured reenactments of some of the events that it documented.
