Arkansas filmmaker Charles B. Pierce took out this full-page ad in Boxoffice magazine to deny any connection to the unsanctioned, G-rated sequel Return to Boggy Creek (1977), brought to you by Texas producer/director Tom Moore.
Pierce would later produce his own official sequel, Boggy Creek II, in 1985. Moore also directed Mark of the Witch, and had a hand in Horror High.
Producer Rex Carlton struck surrealist schlock gold with this New York-based quickie about a loopy scientist trying to graft his wife's severed head onto the body of an exotic dancer. Carlton made better films earlier in his career (C-Man, Guilty Bystander) and worse ones later (Nightmare in Wax, Blood of Dracula's Castle), but none of them ever reached this level of near perfect lunacy.
The Dead Next Door is a blog about regional or "backyard" horror and science fiction films made from the late 1950s to the earlyl 1990s (and beyond). These films were released during the peak years of independent film production, created by a motley crew of seasoned pros, gifted amateurs, and enthusiastic genre fans, along with dozens of eccentric dreamers -- doctors, lawyers, insurance salesmen, publishers, commercial filmmakers, TV production crews and moonlighting pornographers -- all looking for their big break or a fast buck or both.
