Synopsis

A semi-documentary set in and around the Texarkana bottomlands which features reenactments of residents' sightings of the legendary Boggy Creek monster. The film is low budget, and features many non-professional actors yet instead of being a negative thing for the film, it actually makes it more realistic and gives it a charming quality.
