Willow Creek Does Dallas

Willow Creek is funny, suspenseful, scary, and altogether entertaining – something that is sorely lacking in most “bigfoot” films. In fact, I dare say Willow Creek is the best bigfoot film I’ve ever seen, save The Legend of Boggy Creek. (You knew I’d say that, right?).

Fouke’s Monster Mart Makes Big Changes

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on June 6th, 2013


When I started researching for my book, The Beast of Boggy Creek, the first place I visited was the Monster Mart in Fouke, Arkansas. At the time, the Monster Mart was an unassuming little convenience store that only hinted at the town’s big legend. The outside of the store did have a small mural of the creature (made famous by the movie The Legend of Boggy Creek), but the inside merely offered a cheerless curio case and a few old newspaper clippings tacked to bulletin board near the front door. It was better than nothing, but all in all, a rather disappointing display of memorabilia and crude merchandise that, to me, seemed unworthy of the town’s intriguing history.

Since the release of my book, however, there have been some major changes which have elevated the historical recognition of the legend and the curb appeal of the Monster Mart itself.

Discovering Georgia’s Legendary Altamaha-ha

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on August 30th, 2012

While on a recent book research trip (I’m working on a follow-up to The Beast of Boggy Creek), I passed through Darien County in Georgia where I had the opportunity to stop off and investigate a famous cryptozoo creature known as the Altamaha-ha, or “Altie” for short. Although this particular creature does not fit into the scope of my new book project, I did not want to pass up an opportunity to learn a bit more about the legend and visit a few sighting locations.

Book Review: Bigfoot War by Eric S. Brown

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on May 18th, 2011

Forget the lovable star of Harry and the Hendersons or the reclusive giants seen in many a Bigfoot documentary and imagine for a moment a Sasquatch with a much more volatile temperament. A realistic animal with the power and prowess of a mountain gorilla, only larger, hairier and able to stand upright like a man.
