Editorial Reviews

When a local begins fishing with dynamite in Bog Lake, something a bit larger pops to the surface- a green, bug-eyed mutant monster awakened from a long sleep, which promptly begins killing and eating fishermen who stumble across its lair. When Biologist Ginny discovers the creatures nature, the local sheriff decides to use any method to destroy the tenacious beast.

Customer Reviews

I was time warping watching this movie.
Parris Vincenzo Stefanow
The plot is very slow and holds onto the old scary movie based on the "monster-in-the-dark" theme and not the blood soaked fims of today.
Alester Buckman
Fishing with dynamite on Bog Lake releases a deadly creature (although later scenes hint that it has been running around for a while).

Here's part of the product description for the film Bog (1983), as posted on the Amazon website..."When a local begins fishing with dynamite in Bog Lake, something a bit larger pops to the surface"...yeah, something popped to the surface all right, that being a particularly crummy film. Written by Carl Kitt (his only writing credit), and directed by Don Keeslar (The Capture of Grizzly Adams), Bog stars Gloria DeHaven (The Thin Man Goes Home, Yes Sir That's My Baby) and Aldo Ray (God's Little Acre, The Green Berets), both having seen much better days, cinematically speaking. Also appearing is Marshall Thompson (Fiend Without a Face, It! The Terror from Beyond Space), Don Daniel (Slumber Party Massacre II), and special guest star (gasp!) Leo Gordon (Hondo, Baby Face Nelson).

As the movie begins we see some idiot hick fishin' with dynamite on a secluded lake (cue twangy banjo music from film Deliverance), and guess what? The fishin' is good...that is until he's pulled into the water by something...so long, stupid! After this we're into some really shoddy looking credits and lame music played over scenes of a green station wagon cruising the Wisconsin backwoods. As the credits and music eventually end, the vehicle stops near a lake (the same one we saw at the beginning), and out pops a pair of completely annoying couples. Just to give you an idea how annoying, the one woman, who wears a tube top and is constantly shoving her camera down the front of her top, refers to her husband as `Chucky-Poo'...shortly after their arrival I began praying to the movie gods for the bog man to show up and exact some sort of divine retribution...my prays were heard, as old slimy pants does appear, but only goes after the two women, off screen, of course.

Buying this movie I thought it would be like "creature from black lake", "The Legend of Boggy Creek", or "shock Waves". Well Im a lover of cheesey movies but this movie was too cheesey. Very sharp cheesey. I was time warping watching this movie. First I felt the 70's with the acting . Then I felt the 50's with the movie music. Then I felt the 70's again with the theme song in the begining and at the end of the movie. All in all I got what I payed for, a very sharp cheesey movie. Not bad but not that good, just very cheesey!

First of all, the 4 stars are for the film and not the DVD. The quality on the DVD is poor, and it looks like they used a really worn out VHS tape. This film needs a better release. It's a lesser known monster flick, and it's simply about a fisherman who awakens a ancient monster in a scummy bog; and there's a old hag or witch that lives around there that knows about the creature. There's no gore or nudity, but it's recommended if you like monster movies from the 50s, cheap retro monster flicks, and if you're not hard to please. It has some good creepy atmosphere, and the monster ( which is obviously a guy in a rubber monster suit ) is pretty cool. If this got a better release the film would be so much more enjoyable because the poor DVD quality interferes with the films scenery and atmosphere which are one of the best things about the film. It's easy to follow, but it's a little slow moving at times. It doesn't have a lot of action, so don't buy it if you're looking for a monster flick that's fast paced and action packed.

A fisherman, some dynamite and a creature that awakens only to feed? This can't end well. "Bog" is definitely one of the "so bad, it's good" movies. I had a great time watching this movie. Perfect movie for getting together with a couple of friends and making up your own scrpit as you watch!

This film is great for it's age. The creature sort of makes me think of the creatures in the Sci-Fi movies: Frankenfish & Snakehead Terror. I enjoyed the movie a lot. But, I sort of like cheesy horror films.

This film is one of the most unintentionally hilarious romps since Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster. Its got terribly rubber FX, a cast of oldtimers, awful direction and acting, etc. The music sounds like it was taken from one of the samples on an electronic keyboard your kid brother has. But I wouldn't trade my copy for the world!

I found "Bog" to be everything I expected. It was made back in the day, way back in the day.

The rubber suit effects smacked of the original Godzilla all over again.

I was especially emamoured by the Kim Pierce character, played by the wild and wacky, Lou Hunt.

I think that everyone enrolled in a film school shoud examine this movie closely as there are lessons to be learned here.
