5.0 out of 5 stars The Six Principal DVD Versions May 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As of this review, there are now six DVD versions of this film, all of which I've purchased and closely examined.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I ain't going in no woods never again!!! February 16, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've had an interest in Bigfoot since I was a little kid, and BOGGY CREEK was one of the first experiences I'd had with Bigfoot Docudramas. There's a part in the movie where the narrator says "I was a boy when I first heard him scream. It scared me then, and it scares me now." Know what? It scared the bejeezus out of me too, and it still does! There's a lot of behind the scenes stuff about the making of BOGGY CREEK that makes me wonder about the integrity of its director, but personal politics aside, this is one fine example of why at 33 years of age I STILL won't go wandering around in the woods. Sure it's just a guy in a ratty monster suit, and the reenactments are sometimes on the cheezy side, but there's something about this movie that gets under your skin and stays there. If you like the Sasquatch like I like the Sasquatch, then throw away that godawful fourth-generation VHS copy and pick up this DVD. It's about as good as BOGGY CREEK is ever gonna look, and with it on disc you can jump right to your favorite scenes. Mine's the one where the monster grabs at the guy sitting on the toilet. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars "This is Where the Story Plays..." July 12, 2002
Okay, you can toss your bootlegs, the greatest Bigfoot Docu-drama of all time is -finally- available again, and in DVD for the first time (legit, anyhow.)
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars what a difference February 3, 2003
By H man
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this dvd version of LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK/Sterling Ent is the best transfer yet.
.., 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's gone!!!
Sterling Ent dvd studio is the way to go.
