See firsthand what triggered a cult-like following in this “docudrama” style film that conveys swamp life in the 1970’s with the lore of a hidden creature that cursed the Texarkana area.

Pierce used witnesses with first-hand encounters of the swamp monster, with only a budget of $160,000 from Ledwell Machinery, later becoming one of the highest grossing films released in 1972.

Now, the film is considered the commencement of the drive-in film presentation, inspiring later films to adapt the same style of storytelling.

The film is rated G and is appropriate for all ages.
