Despite what you may think, Boggy Creek is not really a remake of the 1971 film The Legend of Boggy Creek. Involving terror hotties Melissa Carnell and Stephanie Honore, this is actually described as “a thriller that centers around a story of five young kids who get caught out in a swamp in Boggy Creek, Texas”. From there, they end up taking on a massive shaggy monstrousity that lives in the swampy ground around Boggy Creek which is apparently almost but not quite exactly the same thing as a Bigfoot / sasquatch / monster from 1971’s The Legend of Boggy Creek.
Well, as far as I’m concerned, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck then you’d better check the thing for feathers and a waterproof ass because chances are, you’ve got a duck. You don’t just make a movie about the same thing as someone else and expect people to NOT call it a remake, or a reimagining or whatever the hell re-word you want to attach to it.
But that’s not really the issue here. Remake or no, it’ll have to stand on its own merits, and it’ll take a while to find out what those merits are as they just started filming.
