Last night was a crap night for TV, so rather than using the free time to do something productive, I spent my evening messing around on that ultimate time waster: Youtube. There are a number of full movies posted there that you can watch free of charge. One such film was that 1970s indie horror classic, The Legend of Boggy Creek. Made on a shoestring budget by fist-time filmmaker Charles B. Pierce, TLoBC became a cult classic, easily earning back its production budget and then some. It kickstarted the independent film movement.
TLoBC also started a nationwide Bigfoot craze. Over the next few years, a number of documentaries and docudramas were made about Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, and the Loch Ness Monster. When I was a kid, I couldn’t get enough of that stuff. Truth be told, it still fascinates me, even though I’m a skeptic. Over the next week or so, I may check Youtube for a few of those other movies I saw as a kid. Provided I don’t decide to spend my time more productively. 😉
If you have an hour and a half to kill, here’s the aforementioned video.
