Boggy Creek Monster
The Truth Behind the Legend

By Woofer McWooferson

Boggy Creek MonsterThe Boggy Creek Monster will be prowling across the US soon. The feature-length documentary began filming on April 22, 2016 and is now in post-production. This is the third offering from Small Town Monsters, following Minerva Monster (2015) and Beast of Whitehall (2016).

Author and cryptozoologist Lyle Blackburn (The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke Monster) and Brandon Dalo (Beast of Whitehall) will be co-producing. Boggy Creek Monster will primarily focus on the true stories behind the 1972 horror classic The Legend of Boggy Creek.

Writer/director Seth Breedlove refers to the piece as the ultimate repository of information on the Fouke county monster. Thus, Boggy Creek Monster will also cover more recent Bigfoot sightings.

Boggy Creek Monster held a Kickstarter for crowd-funding, meeting its first goal of $9,000 in only four days and raising $17,000 by the end of the campaign. Breedlove believes the campaign succeeded because of a growing interest in the mystery and a hunger for information. Breedlove also noted that Boggy Creek Monster will be Small Town Monsters’ biggest production yet, incorporating cinema-grade cameras, night-vision cameras, helicopters, and drones.

The genesis of the film lies in the sightings of the monster by residents in and around Boggy Creek and Fouke, Arkansas. Lyle Blackburn, who is a consultant in addition to producer, will appear in the film to discuss his research on the subject. Zac Palmisano is in charge of the cinematography, and Dalo will score the soundtrack in addition to co-producing.

On May 25, 2016, Small Town Monsters released the first teaser trailer, leaving fans and interested parties wanting more. Take a look and let House of Tortured Souls know what you think.
