Default The Legend of Boggy Creek - Remastered



Advertise Here

Earlier this evening, I learned that the 1972 Bigfoot movie "The Legend of Boggy Creek" was re-released last year, in a newly-remastered format. Apparently, all previous VHS and DVD releases of this movie were unauthorized and were derived from as much as 3rd generation copies. Thus, they were of generally poor quality.

However, in 2018 the daughter of the movie's director acquired the rights to the movie and she also located an original 35mm print of the film. It has now been digitally re-mastered and is available for online rent or purchase:

The Legend of Boggy Creek, Remastered

I remember my brother and I seeing this movie at a Saturday matinee when it first came out, I would have been 9 years old at the time. Scared the crap out of me...

I watched this 6 or 7 years ago. I've got an overactive imagination. I didn't sleep well that night.

My dad took me and my brother to see this when I was a kid. I was maybe 10. We saw it at the drive in. Then he sent us to get popcorn and when we were coming back he ducked down in the car, then popped out and scared the crap out of us.

I finally got a chance to see the re-mastered edition of the Boggy Creek movie. It's probably been about 15 years since the last time I saw it, but the video did seem much clearer and crisper than what I remembered.

I also watched on Amazon Prime this recent update to the Boggy Creek story. It was very well-made and in it they talk to some of the people who were involved in the original story, back in the early '70s. They also re-visit some of the locations featured in the original movie:

Boggy Creek Monster: The Truth Behind the Legend

One of the take-aways from this new video is that in the original movie they imply that all of the activity stopped in the early '70s. However, the locals say that it never really has, even after all these years.

It was my first "date" movie with my seventh grade sweetheart.

She broke up with me not long afterwards. I guess she saw the writing on the wall...lol.

I watched another one of the shows by the same guy who did the Boggy Creek revisited show, mentioned just above.

This one was called "The Bray Road Beast" and was about a series of sightings of what was claimed to be a Werewolf, or a "Dog Man", if you prefer. They used the term interchangeably. This place is located in southern Wisconsin.

Pretty frightening stuff, real or not... I wouldn't want to be caught out there alone at night.

Watched another one of these episodes, "The Beast of Whitehall". It's another Bigfoot-type monster, in New York State.

THe Beast of Whitehall

It was alright, but to me not as interesting as the Boggy Creek revisited episode.

Is that the 1 where there's a couch in front of a big window with kids or adults sitting on it and he slams his arm through it and swings it back and forth?

I seen several of those shows when I was a kid. This show i'm talking about scared me so bad my nose started bleeding. Which generally happened if I got the crap scared out of me. Hasn't done it since I was 14 and my dad took me to the dr and had him cauterize the inside of my nose.

Yea, that was fun.

You know, I just realized something. I wonder if that's the reason I can't hold my breath under water unless I keep my nose pinched shut or smoke comes out of my nose when I take a toke and hold my breath? Never thought of that before. But then again it could be the result of a broken nose too. I dunno, it's 1 of those possibilities.

Well, if you're going to go down that road, then the Mystery Science Theater 3000 riff on "Boggy Creek II" is truly the greatest classic of them all. No matter how many times I see it, I still lmao over it.

I thought so. That made such an impression on me from that 1 movie that I have never had a chair or couch in front of an outside window with my back to it ever. Same while visiting friends and family or sitting in a chair in a restaurant. Nope, not me.

It definitely made a lasting impression on me... I'm not even sure if I had ever even heard of "Bigfoot" before that movie.
