The Small Town Monsters documentary series is back with another trailer for their next film. This documentary will feature the infamous Fouke Monster of The Legend of Boggy Creek.
Here is their press release that was just issued:
On January 31st, the Small Town Monsters film crew will launch a crowdfunding campaign to fund their third film examining rural, mythological monsters; Boggy Creek Monster. The film will focus on the 1971 horror classic, Legend of Boggy Creek, and the true stories that inspired it, and will be filmed in Fouke, Arkansas in partnership with author and researcher, Lyle Blackburn. The “Fouke Monster” became the subject of nationwide interest after a rash of sightings of a hair-covered beast rocked the tiny town of Fouke in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
Ahead of the campaign launch the STM team has released what they're calling a "production teaser" to help give viewers a sense of what they hope to accomplish with the film. Drawing on sound bites from the Legend of Boggy Creek film and utilizing modern footage from the swamps of lower Arkansas, the trailer evokes a foreboding mood.
A Kickstarter campaign is a form of crowdfunding in which people are welcomed to purchase various “rewards” with the monetary amount given going toward the production of the film. In this case the rewards include apparel, a one-of-a-kind poster (designed by artist Sam Shearon) featuring the Boggy Creek Monster himself, film memorabilia, and, uniquely, a chance to see the second film in the Small Town Monsters’ series, Beast of Whitehall, a full month before its official release on April 1st.
