The Fouke Monster had gained interest in the 1970’s, as well as the said movie. “The legend of Boggy Creek” that had netted almost 25 million dollars in it’s time.
One good source on the Fuke monster, is this link. The beast of Boggy Creek.
The film, which claims to be a true story, sets out to detail the existence of the “Fouke Monster,” a Bigfoot-like creature that has reportedly been seen by residents of a small Arkansas community since the 1950s. It is described as being completely covered in reddish-brown hair, leaving three-toed tracks in bean fields, and having a foul odor.
Several locals from the small town of Fouke, Arkansas, recall their stories, often appearing as themselves, claiming that the creature has killed several large hogs as well as other animals. In one scene, a kitten is shown as having been “scared to death” by the creature. The narrator informs the audience that while people have shot at the creature in the past, it has always managed to escape. In another scene, hunters attempt to pursue the creature with dogs, but the dogs refuse to give chase. A police constable states that while driving home one night, the creature suddenly ran across the road in front of him.
Wkipedia defines Fouke as”The Legend of Boggy Creek is a 1972 horror docudrama about the “Fouke Monster,” a Bigfoot-type creature that has been seen in and around Fouke, Arkansas since the 1950s. The film mixes staged interviews with some local residents who claim to have encountered the creature, along with fictitious reenactments of said encounters. Charles B. Pierce, an advertising salesman from Texarkana on the Arkansas/Texas border, borrowed over $100,000 from a local trucking company, used an old 35mm movie camera and hired locals (mainly high school students) to help make the 90-minute film. The film has generated approximately $20 million in box office revenue and is available on DVD.
Question is though was it a legendary Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, or just some crazed out media hopeful?

The wkipediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fouke_Monster ,describes the Fouke monster as”
The Fouke Monster, also known as the Southern Sasquatch, is a legendary cryptid reported near the town of Fouke in Miller County, Arkansas, during the early 1970s. The creature was accused of attacking a local family. Initial sightings of the creature were concentrated in the Jonesville/Boggy Creek area, where it was blamed for the destruction of local livestock. Later, sightings were made several hundred miles to the north and the east of Fouke.
This very same location goes back to the most controversial sightings ever known from the Rodger Patterson film and other recorded footage. One thing that seems to upset me, is the fact that I had told folks repeatedly that Patterson on his death bed made a confession. now in other articles all the sudden Iam seeing the same messages being relayed.
Was I wrong then, what about now? does Bigfoot exist? we have heard some pretty outlandish stories about Bigfoot cloaking and disappearing, we have stories about him frequenting towns and rural areas and swamps, even Native American lands.
You can all make the conclusions as you so decide , does the Fouke exist, is it urban legend or a very very real being?
