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.Read more “Creature from Black Lake – Original Theatrical Trailer”
One of the best drive-in movies of the 1970s. Two college kids come to a backwater town doing research on a “bigfoot” creature that’s inhabits a gloomy nearby swamp. Before long they find themselves caught in a sequence of chilling events, culminating with a head-to-head confrontation with the creature. Taylor and Elam are excellent, but Fimple and Carson steal the show as the energetic college kids who soon realize they’ve bitten off far more than they can chew. The final 15 minutes of this film are excellent. The film has a great music score and lots of humorous banter that helps keep the film from getting too dark. A must.
