Forget what you saw...
The creators of this sequel dropped the docudrama angle of the first film and got rid of its narrator, the two most interesting elements. The photography is similar and the swamps still look amazing. You can have all the character exposition in the world; if your camera isn’t intimate with them and if it is poorly framed, you’re just wasting precious footage.
These actors are awful and aren’t sympathetic, the kids especially. Speaking of the kids, they get so much screen time it gets us wondering if their presence will tame Bigfoot, as is often the case in horror movies. In fact, this is a children’s movie... sort of. They are the main protagonists and they are impervious to danger. Watching this flick is the cinematographic equivalent of babysitting.
Don’t blink or you’ll miss the Fouke Monster AKA Bigfoot. He’s often “seen” towards the end in an interminable storm scene where you can’t discern what’s going on. Speaking of the third act, the conclusion is extremely frustrating. It confirms that this is a movie for a very young audience. Horror fans will hate Return to Boggy Creek for it, forget it and never look back.
