Trivia: This movie was actually the third "Boggy Creek" movie, but
it was CHARLES PIERCE's second one on the subject. Since he did not make
Return to Boggy Creek, he obviously refused to acknowledge its existence,
thus naming his movie Boggy Creek II.
When compared to Boggy Creek II, 1977's Return to Boggy Creek has a lot
going for it: it does NOT star Charles Pierce or his whisper thin son, but
instead stars Dawn Wells (Mary Ann of TV's "Gilligan's Island") and the
troubled, recently deceased Dana Plato (of TV's "Diff'rent Strokes").
Now on to the story of the Boggy Creek monster: it is actually called
the Fouke Monster, since it was alledgedly first spotted near the little
town of Fouke, Arkansas, near Texarkana. In 1964, rumor has it that Fouke
resident James Crabtree reported seeing a big hairy animal and shooting it
three times with no effect.
In 1971, another Fouke resident, Bobby Ford, was treated at a hospital
for shock and scratches, which he claimed were caused by some sort of huge
ape-like creature. Soon thereafter, other people also claimed to have seen
the creature or that their livestock were mauled and consumed by it. But
the sightings quickly stopped after the sheriff arrested and fined three
men for staging and reporting a fraudulent monster attack.
Six months after Ford's incident, a man from Texarkana (yep, you
guessed it...CHARLES PIERCE!) announced that he was going to make a movie
based on the Fouke Monster. He told the local newspaper that the film
would be made on a budget of $160,000 (somebody misplaced a decimal point)
and that he wouldn't be surprised if it got some Oscar nominations!
(Only if there's a Third Nipple category!) The majority of the Legend of
Boggy Creek's cast were local residents, many of whom re-enacted their
alledged encounters with the monster.
Today, the only thing that remains of the legend is the Monster Mart
located on Highway 71 in Fouke, Arkansas. The proprietors will gladly
sell you a souvenir T-shirt and tell you stories about the creature. You
can't miss the mart: its sign has a hairy creature riding atop a red
razorback boar, the symbol of nearly every sports team in Arkansas. For
your convenience, there's a hose near the out-house.
