Despite its title, this film is more or less related to The Legend of Boggy Creek and its two sequels, but it features a Bigfoot-like creature nonetheless. How the director chose to show the creature is interesting when it’s not just a lame close-up. It reminds us of fake blurry footage of Bigfoot recorded all around the world since cameras exist. Sadly, this is the only good thing about it.
Boggy Creek is heavily edited with flashbacks, emo songs, echo and gaussian blur to make everything nice and shiny. There is constant melodrama and way too much introspection for a B movie about Bigfoot. The main character, a girl who enjoys jogging, cries and laughs uncontrollably. She’s probably bipolar. She comes with emotional baggage and constantly brings the movie down.
These characters are controlling, unnatural and downright annoying. Their exposition fills ninety percent of the movie, leaving very little room for Bigfoot. Boggy Creek would be a proper slasher if the body count was higher and if it wasn’t concentrated towards the end. It is particularly gory and would work better as a short, but nobody would care about it. It's boring.
