Two college students, one relatively normal and the other possibly inbred, go searching the Louisiana swamps for Bigfoot. They talk to several eccentric characters before encountering the creature itself. In the years following the classic Legend of Boggy Creek, there were a string of low-budget Bigfoot movies. This is one of the better ones. It's similar to Boggy Creek in some ways. The usage of flashbacks and Southern locales, for example. Unlike Boggy Creek, it doesn't have the same level of atmosphere or creepiness. Still, I enjoyed the country locations and people. You don't see a lot of that in films, then or now, unless it's non-Southern actors doing terrible accents and usually being condescending to the region and its people.
John David Carson wears a stylish neckerchief so you know he's cool. Comic relief Dennis Fimple is in his mid-thirties and too old for the role of a college student. But I suppose in a movie like this, it doesn't matter much. The scene where Fimple's character Pahoo suddenly reveals he experienced the horrors of the Vietnam War is sure to elicit derisive snorts from viewers. Character actors Dub Taylor and Jack Elam are always a treat to watch.
It's not particularly scary but it sure is fun. The creature costume is not bad, though we don't see it much. Honestly, there is some fun to be had at the movie's expense but it's not a stinker. It's an enjoyable movie about two goobers searching for Bigfoot. You can take it as it is or laugh at it -- either way, it's a good time.
