The Barbaric Beast of Boggy Creek, Part II (1985)

aka Boggy Creek II: and the Legend Continues

How bad is it? One man and his family make a horror pic on the proceeds from the original film.
Should you see it? I'd have to say no.

Charles B. Pierce had an unlikely hit when he made the pseudo-documentary "The Legend of Boggy Creek," about a legendary Alabama swamp monster. A decade later, he decided to remake it, without the pretense of it's being a documentary. A professor and two students interview locals about witnessing the monster, then they see it, then they go back to interviewing for no particular reason. Nothing happens for an hour, as middling scenery takes the forefront. Finally, they meet "Crenshaw," a character that will set Alabama back a century in public relations, who appears to have captured and bred the beast. There's a flurry of action at the end, but by then you won't care.
