Shot in and around Fouke Arkansas with local actors and students, maverick writer/producer Charles B Pierce (The Town That Dreaded Sundown) created a national sensation with his unique mix of documentary style and fiction to tell the story of the Fouke Monster, a Bigfoot like creature that had been sighted by locals for decades. THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK was a huge hit that bypassed Hollywood distribution, but went on to become the 10th Highest grossing film of 1972. Sadly, years of legal fights and neglect led to the film fading away. Until now – after decades of low quality bootleg copies, the Fouke Monster is back. The new 4K restoration by George Eastman House brings back one the biggest indie films of all times and probably the only G rated horror film.
