There's a hairy humanoid beast lurking in the Louisiana swamps, but only trapper Joe Canton (Jack Elam, ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST) has seen it and lived to tell the tale, and the other residents of Oil City, Louisiana don't talk about it. But that's not about to stop intrepid grad students Pahoo (Dennis Fimple, HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES) and Rives (John David Carson, EMPIRE OF THE ANTS), who are determined to track down the Bigfoot-like creature. Defying local sheriff Billy Carter (Bill Thurman, THE LAST PICTURE SHOW), the duo trek deep into the wilds of Black Lake, and a series of frightening encounters make it clear the monster is no mere legend. Following in the (big) footsteps of THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK and similar docudramas, 1976's CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE is a fictional Sasquatch saga, albeit one inspired by real reports. With a colorful cast, also including Dub Taylor (THE WILD BUNCH), and plenty of rural atmosphere courtesy of cinematographer Dean Cundey (HALLOWEEN, JURASSIC PARK), scripter Jim McCullough Jr.--who also co-stars--and director Joy Houck Jr. bring touches of humor and humanity that complement the mystery of the monster, and the terror of its attacks. A longtime late-night TV favorite, CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE now roars onto its Blu-ray debut with a new 4K restoration and a boatload of special features!
- Brand-new 4K restoration from the original 35mm camera negative
- Audio commentary with author/filmmaker Michael Gingold and film historian Chris Poggiali
- SWAMP STORIES – All-new featurette with Director of Photography Dean Cundey
- Original theatrical trailer and radio spot
- Newly translated optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
- First time ever remastered from the original film materials! Throw out those bootlegs!
- The best of the 'bigfoot craze' films of the 1970s.
A wonderfully old-fashioned monster movie like they used to make monster movies--chills, chuckles and a couple of good screams
—Paul Beutel, Austin American-Statesman
***1/2...thoroughly professional and highly entertaining.
