It’s a family affair on The Deuce this June! The Papa of downcountry pseudo-doc shocks, Charles B. Pierce, brings pretty much the whole Pierce clan together to traipse the soggy lowlands in BOGGY CREEK II: AND THE LEGEND CONTINUES in search of (aka) THE BARBARIC BEAST OF BOGGY CREEK!!

Picking up (albeit about a decade later) the “true tale” of the storied Bigfoot-esque Fouke Creature said to “terrorize” Texarkana’s Boggy Creek environ – finds Papa Pierce, himself, playing Arkansas University anthropology/cryptology professor ‘Dr. Brian C. Lockhart,’ who gets wind (during a particularly exciting Razorbacks game) of a purported attack by the wily wooly wanderer… and rustles up a rag-tag team of (2) student “researchers”: the often shirtless Tim (son, Chuck Jr) and the incredibly monikered Tanya Yazzie – who, just for fun, brings along her BFF Leslie (Cindy Butler aka Mrs. Charles B. Pierce)… Lackadaisical locals are interviewed – more terrifying tales are told (the out-house “accident” a standout!) – the motley troupe “fight off” a rabid dog (shades of CUJO!) – much nature is photographed – some farm animals met – more somewhat less lackadaisical locals are interviewed – and much scientific research is carried out, whilst camping and searching for Leslie’s rouge!! Add to all that a hefty helping of various other members of the Pierce family tree and friends, both in front of and behind the camera, and you’ve got a Pierce-picnic even a furry Fouke Monster couldn’t resist! Especially when he’s got his cute lil’ son in tow!

Writing, directing, narrating, starring in, and corralling this scrappy sequel, Pierce serves up an authentic slice of regional filmmaking: particular, peculiar, and picaresque.. and more than a little perplexing in its “singularity”… most likely befuddling the bozos bedded down in the Times Square Theatre not used to such a pervasive lackadaisical outlook on life and marsh-monsters… Still, The Deuce-dorks know how to pull those Daddy Day heartstrings!!
