Here's the trailer for the remake of "Legend of Boggy Creek." I admit, I am extremely wary of remakes. The original "Legend of Boggy Creek" (listed as documentary) got me completely and totally enamored of the Bigfoot concept at a young age. I remember screaming out when I saw it. I wasn't scared of ghosts, just creatures bigger than me. I still am. I can't stand near horses and hate to be in circuses where there's elephants or any human over 6'4" tall.
The original movie was the most godawful concoction of all time. It dragged on forever with soft music and tons of bayou scenes and a folksy narrator. For a time, you'd forget it was about Bigfoot and think you were watching a nature special. But, the really funny thing in retrospect was the reenactments of "true stories." One in particular makes me laugh every time. They played out a scene of women in a cabin alone and Bigfoot banging around outside. Well, at one point the narrator says "the women were cowering in the room" and it shows a dude with a mustache wearing a woman's house coat. Okay, that's just priceless!
So, with this remake being made, I started to wonder--will they go campy or will they go hardcore? Looks hardcore and I'm pleased. I think the story of a swamp-based bigfoot is a feasible one and I want to see it portrayed with a bit more intelligence and some fear factor.
Personally, I'm still waiting for M. Knight to do a Bigfoot movie that involves the concept of man's struggle with whether this creature is man or beast. Still, I never ever miss a Bigfoot movie, even if SyFy channel made it! I just can't resist!
