Editorial Reviews

An alcoholic old doc tries to sell an abandoned baby girl to two degenerates, but the deal turns deadly and the blonde-haired little gal grows up to become the legendary SWAMP GIRL of the Okefenokee. Her pretty young teenage life is turned upside down when she is forced to search the swamp for a psycho prison escapee hiding in the Okefenokee. Naturally, it all gets nasty as Swamp Girl battles Convict Girl in an exploitation-film-fight-to-the-death that comes complete with catfights, quicksand, country-western crooner Ferlin Husky, a sadistic detour to a snake farm, and a truly wacky twist ending!

And: When a blonde floozy is found strangled at The Swamper Motel, an innocent stranger gets accused--but not before he clobbers deputy Lyle Waggoner and flees on foot into the Okefenokee. It's all just another day in SWAMP COUNTRY, presented here in widescreen Techniscope!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Movie You Can Sink Yourself Into July 29, 2002
Swamp Girl is an excellent movie, which I would give 4 stars on its own. Swamp Country is not as good and would get 3 stars on its own. Both movies are low budget films made to be shown at southern U.S. drive-ins, but deserve a wider audience. Getting the two movies together on one dvd with all the extras earns them the elevation to 5 stars.
Swamp Girl is a really fun movie with great characters and even greater locations. Although the print is a bit scratchy at times, the shots of the swamp are magnificent, and you actually feel like you're there in a hostile but beautiful environment, a sense that you don't get with the occassional helicopter shots of the outskirts of swamps you sometimes see in big budget pictures. No, these movies take place in wild, untamed regions. I don't want to spoil the fun of learning how the Swamp Girl wound up being raised in the swamp, or give away any of the fun twists, but you will get to see her go up against nature, progress, rednecks, and an escaped female prisoner and her boyfriend while making use of the swamp environment.
Swamp Country is about a man wrongfully accused of a murder escaping into the swamp until he can clear up his name (there's also a brief subplot about a musician being kidnapped, and a love quadrangle). This film also has some great shots of the swamp and great characters, and is filled with some excellent, catchy tunes (very Johnny Cash). Unforturnately it is longer than it should be and drags in places, otherwise I'd give it a higher rating, but it is still worthwhile viewing for fans of old B movies (it was made around 1971, but has the feeling of a low budget crime short from the 1940s).

4.0 out of 5 stars Talkin' Bout' Swamp Country!!! August 9, 2002
By A Customer
Both these movies are very fun and entertaining if you like these kind of B to C grade 70's fare. These are like exploitation light...for they are in no way soft core or very violent or profanity ridden. The short subject "Swamp Virgin" is actually better than either film. The whole package goes to together very very well!!

4.0 out of 5 stars SWAMP EXPLOITATION!! RECOMMENDED VIEWING June 9, 2002
I bought this dvd and was very pleased to see to very odd features from the swamps. The first feature is Swamp Girl starring Ferlin Husky and Claude King, both of whom were country music singers of the 60's. Ferlin sings a song about a swamp girl and Claude stars as the sheriff. Claude King had a hit country song with the tune Wolverton Mountain. As the swamp girl you have sexy Simone Griffeth. She is very good in the role and most people probably remember her as David Carradine's assistant in Death Race 2000. Two convicts force our swamp girl to take them out of the swamp and needless to say they meet horrible deaths. Things get even more complicated with the arrival of the female convicts parents.
The second feature is Swamp Country and the title tune is sung by Baker Knight and isn't too bad at all. The story involves a sexy woman murdered at a motel and the innocent man persued into the swamps. Rex Allen plays the sheriff here, you might remember him as the narrator for some classic Disney films. As his deputy is none other then Lyle Waggoner from the Wonder Woman show. Great entertainment here as well with over 3 hours of good movies and extras. The extras include trailers, and a bonus featurette called Swamp Virgin. Recommended viewing.

Verified Purchase
This swamp themed DVD from Something Weird features two far-out movies, an odd-ball featurette, a swamp buggy short subject, an exploitation gallery of posters from old drive-in flicks with audio oddities, and an assortment of trailers.

The first main feature is 'Swamp Girl'(78mins/1971). This story takes place in some desolate back-woods swamp area as a fat old doctor helps women give birth and then keeps the girl babies in order to sell them. When he tries to sell Swamp Girl herself, a kind-hearted black assistant foils the attempt and proceeds to raise her himself.

They live isolated for a number of years until a Park Ranger discovers the Swamp Girl and offers to help her. When she relays this info to her 'Pa', he then explains the whole backstory to her(complete with flashback scenes). Then two convicts race thru the swamp area and kidnap our Swamp Girl as this whole story comes to a wacky conclusion.

The second flick is 'Swamp Country'(94mins/1966). A blonde woman checks into a hotel with a sleazy looking fella manning the front desk. She then gets chocked out in her sleep and when a big, lumbering oaf comes to investigate, he gets fingered for the crime. He then expertly escapes in the swamp country as the sheriff and his posse perform a manhunt.

Meanwhile, a Roy Orbinson wanna-be sings some catchy backwoods toons until he is kidnapped by some crappy looking mobsters. The girl he loves(who the Sheriff also loves), somehow tries to rescue the big oaf(cause he rescued her little sister). Eventually they end up back at the hotel as the sleazeball manager tries to choke out this woman. The oaf and sleazeball fight until the cops come and arrest the hotel manager.
