From the guys that brought you Night of the Strangler, Night of Bloody Horror and The Mountaintop Motel Massacre comes another mid-1970s search for Bigfoot cash in after Charles B. Pierce’s The Legend of Boggy Creek raked it in at the box-office — this time a little further south in the swamps of Louisiana. And thanks to the efforts of hicksploitation stalwarts Dub Taylor and Jack Elam, and another spectacular job by Dean Cundey behind the camera (– that’s kinda butchered in the wrong-ratio DVD release), this research rehash manages just enough spooks and backwater bayou buffoonery to rate a hearty recommendation.
