Look at all the those insane hog callers. The button is affixed to the sweater tied around her neck.
It’s a retainer. Helps keep his lines from exiting his memory after he’s read the script.
Somehow the rambling exchange between Mike (as the child creature) and Crow (as its patient, indulgent parent) is the funniest thing in the episode for me. They capture genuine kid speak.
Snow…head. nuff said.
Used to watch the original on TNT’s monster movie feature back in the day. There was more than one cut of the documentary. Sometimes they’d show one that ends like a typical low key backwoods 70s documentary, other times they’d show a Blair Witch-esque ending where the Documentarians hide for their lives from the enraged Creature.
I just watched this again yesterday. What a great episode. In terms of how good a fit a movie is for the MST treatment, this one has to be in the top ten or twenty – an earnest endeavor, competently shot, with an engaging (albeit silly) story, but just shy of the “actually good” mark.
Sir Jimmy Clem is a treat, the girls are a treat, even “in over his head / taking himself way too seriously” Mr. Pierce is a treat.
Whenever I return to season 10, I’m amazed at how phenomenally strong it was. They may not have known it at the time, but the gang was following in Seinfeld’s footsteps – going out at their absolute peak.
In yet another instance of Vinegar Syndrome (or its partners) releasing a MSTed film on its label, enter BOGGY CREEK II with a new transfer and premium boxart!
This isn’t really my favorite film or riff, but I’ve only ever seen it a handful of times and was distracted. I’m going to try out the riff again, but I don’t see myself paying extra atop my existing subscription to buy this movie un-MSTed. The only extra is a commentary track by a cryptozoologist (!). The “VSA” sublabel usually comes with a double-sided poster and sturdier boxart, so it isn’t the most feature-rich product line that VS features, as it is. Perhaps other MSTies may find this release a bit more interesting!
Vinegar Syndrome are doing god’s work.
Which god and whether it is benign or not, we’re not sure.

Every year I tend to discover an episode that speaks to me and becomes a new favorite. Boggy Creek II is this year’s found treasure. Something about the movie just feels cozy, comfortable, and nostalgic. The riffs are spectacular, and the slow pacing of the film makes it so the riffing has room to fire on all cylinders. The characters are all ridiculous, but not to an annoying degree. I think the man playing Crenshaw in the 3rd act did a really great job. I’m really glad I gave this one a chance because it has easily climbed the ranks to one of my favorite episodes.
The believability of this post is rated very high.
