#83 THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK (1973)
SASQUATCH SHAKES THE SHITTER

In the '70s, Bigfoot was all the rage.  With oversized footprints popping up in the Pacific Northwest, Bigfoot became a huge part of American pop culture.  A bionic version of the creature appeared on The Six Million Dollar Man, and he even partnered with Wild-Boy for a Sid and Marty Kroft Saturday morning show.  The Legend of Boggy Creek, using a grainy 16mm transferred to 35mm early Blair Witch Project documentary approach, to tell the tale of a Sasquatch like creature terrorizing a backwoods community.  The creature is largely unseen (which is good 'cause its basically just a dude in a gorilla suit), but there's a particularly terrifying moment that sticks out as one of the best.

Some poor dude is sitting on a toilet, in the middle of the night, when the Boggy Creek Beast sticks his arm through the window, litereally scaring the shit out of the guy.  Its bad enough to imagine snakes, sharks, or alligators biting your ass while you're taking a dump, but when you've got the Bigfoot possibility through the window as well, it's almost enough to make you ask the doctor for a colostomy bag.

Seeing the scene again as an adult, it's certainly more hilarious than scary, but I'm going to leave it on the list in honor of my 7 year old past self that insists that it stays.

retroCRUSH PRO TIP: I've seen this DVD in the bargain bins of Wal-Mart for only $5.88!
