Film: The Legend of Boggy Creek

Here, the sulfur river flows,
Rising when the storm cloud blows,
This is where the creature goes,
Save in the land he knows.
Perhaps, he dimly wonders why,
Is there no other such as I?
To love, to touch before I die,
To listen to my lonely cry.
— The song in the end credits.

The Legend of Boggy Creek is a horror film from the year 1973.

It centers around a cryptid called The Fouke Monster, a sasquatch-like creature which prowls in the state of Arkansas. It is shot in a documentary style which varies between with interviews of locals and dramatized encounters with the Monster.

The film portrays the sightings of the Monster escalating slowly, starting with random caught glimpses of it in the woods and then ending with an attack against a house shared by two families.

It was followed by two sequels: Return to Boggy Creek in 1977 and Boggy Creek 2: The Legend Continues in 1985.

Watch the original film here.


Examples in this work:

  • Hostile Weather: Thunder can be heard in the background when the sheriff come to check up the Ford house.
  • Hysterical Woman: Fouke Monster's appearance causes three women to go into hysterics when it grabs for them through an open window. To be fair, the men didn't do much better.
  • It's Probably Nothing: After three women hear the Fouke Monster outside their house, they dismiss the noise just being the wind.
