1. Henstooth Video (July 2, 2002) listed 85 minutes.
Good picture quality, a nearly perfect print, save one spot where the underlying print has a skip, at 32:54, and one loses a word of the song: "[Here] the Sulphur River flows..." It is this defect which makes the Cheezy Flicks print identifiable as being derived from the Henstooth. This one has a cute menu, featuring one of the Circes looking out the window; the window frame contains a small snatch of moving gifs featuring the Creature.
2. Sterling Entertainment (July 31, 2002) listed 85 minutes.
This print begins with the Cinema Shares International Distribution Corporation logo, something the others (except Beach) lack. The picture quality is a shade less than the Henstooth, and unlike the Henstooth, this one cuts off a couple of seconds at the end of the credits, which is maddening to a completist. Under the film title (5:40), the artifact "© 1975 Pierce Ledwell Productions" has been electronically added. In a few sections, the sound/picture timing is a couple of seconds off - one sees the cow startle and move before the Creature screeches (13:04). Very annoying when you're watching, once you've noticed it. These defects are also found in the Beach Productions version.
3. Education2000inc (February 2, 2002) listed 90 minutes.
No doubt about it - this is the worst version, hands down (or was, until the On-Demand DVD-R came along). Picture is grainy, color bluish-green, contrast very poor, and dark - one can't make out much in the darker scenes. The print has an old, scratched "Rated G" bumper at the beginning.Read more ›
No, the print isn't fantastic, no it's not in widescreen, but it's THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK, people! C'mon! You get to hear a guy wonder if maybe an orangutan was in his sweet potato patch! You get to listen to another guy who got part of his foot shot off in a freak boating accident! You get to ponder why so many people in Arkansas seem to be named "Crabtree"!!
And that way cool SONG! How many other bigfoot movies have a love-theme for the MONSTER?!! (And there's another song about...another guy named "Crabtree", but hey...)
In all honesty, I'd have LOVED to have seen this restored and released in widescreen. However, I share the opinion that a widescreen print of the film may not -exist- now. At any rate, the DVD is head and shoulders above any VHS copy that's been released to date. Some of the colors come in like gangbusters at the least expected times, and you can actually see the grain on the tree bark in the darker scenes, so this is the best transfer this film has ever had, without doubt. My biggest complaint is that annoying little white speck about halfway up on the right side of the middle of the picture. What the heck IS that?
"The Legend of Boggy Creek" is one of my absolute -favorite- films from my childhood. It has withstood viewing after viewing, it doesn't get old, it's just it's own sorta good, clean FUN. There's never been anything like it, before or since.
Gotta love that song...
.., WOW, what a difference from the initial crummy release of this movie on dvd. Make sure you get this one, the picture is a hundred times clearer, the sound is so much better, I felt transported back in time, like I was watching it on the big screen. The shots of the monster are super clear. I can't express enough how this clear version makes a huge Total different watching experience then the first dvd release of this classic. For those of you who have the crummy first release of the dvd, with the mysterious white dot in the right corner of the entire movie...guess what....it's gone!!!
Sterling Ent dvd studio is the way to go.

A little dated so the shock value that existed in the 70's no longer has effect but still a classic.Published 14 days ago by Jeff Ellis
Well told story. I grew up in the area where this happened. The cinematography was good for a low budget film.Published 24 days ago by D Reese
