When Charles Pierce wouldn’t sell the distributor Howco his epic THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK (Pierce told me he was offered $1 million for all rights prior to his self-releasing the film and grossing over $20 million via four-walling), the southern drive-in king owner of Howco, Joy Houck Sr., produced his own version instead: THE CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE. Though profitable, it was no TLOBC.
