A documentary film by Dana Holyfield, the grand-daughter to Harlan Ford, who was first to report a sighting of this legendary swamp creature, and was known worldwide as the monster hunter. Holyfield ventured deep into the Honey Island Swamp, to search for new evidence of this legendary creature. She confronted several eye-witnesses, who live in the swamp, who were reluctant to talk about their encounter. She also located Mr. Mills, who was with Ford on the hunting trip, when they came face to face with the swamp monster. Mills tells of their encounter for the first time on camera. Ford's wife donated an 8mm film reel that she found in his belongings, after he passed away in 1980. The reel was labeled, "Honey Island Swamp Monster." Ford filmed a large, hairy, bipedal creature, walking upright, through the dense foliage. See Ford's footage uncut in this documentary film. This documentary film was filmed without a studio, and without a budget. It doesn't have special effects, or reenactments. It was produced solely by Dana Holyfield, who also filmed it, and edited the footage. These scenes were captured when the opportunity came up, sometimes spur of the moment when she came across an expectant eye-witness. So don't expect fancy lighting and great sound. But this film has received good reviews from film critics, and viewers, who enjoyed learning about this legend.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

"The best Bigfoot doc of this decade!" - Eduardo Sanchez, Co-Writer and Co-Director of "THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT" and Writer and Director of "SEVENTH MOON" "The production values and cinematography are terrific, the re-creations are well-done and the entire package is absorbing. I highly recommend you check it out." - Alex Grecian, Writer and Co-Creator of the Image Comics series "PROOF" The American South has its own unique traits, people, cuisine, and way of life, and according to some people, its own monsters. While many have heard the legends of Bigfoot in the Pacific Northwest, the stories of boogers, wild men, and skunk apes lurking in the backwoods and bayous of the Southern U.S. aren't as well known. With commentary from believers, skeptics, and the open-minded, "SOUTHERN FRIED BIGFOOT" is a documentary that explores the legends, tales, and possible reality of the hairy monsters that are purported to prowl the wild areas of the South. As seen on The Documentary Channel and Destination America, "SFB" profiles some of the people and groups who have made efforts to study and pursue the southern Sasquatch. While it covers the broad topic of strange creatures below the Mason-Dixon Line, a few key legends are highlighted. They include: The Fouke Monster, the hairy creature that has been sighted around Fouke, Arkansas for decades and was the inspiration for the cult classic film "The Legend of Boggy Creek;" The Skunk Ape, the foul-smelling creature that is said to haunt the Everglades in Florida; The Honey Island Swamp Monster, the beast that is rumored to prowl the swamplands northeast of New Orleans, Louisiana; and The Lake Worth Monster, a white shaggy creature that was sighted repeatedly near Fort Worth, Texas in the late 1960s. Are these stories just myths or misidentifications, or could there actually be something unknown watching you from the dark shadows of the trees...? DVD includes the 1-hour documentary and 45 minutes of Extras. (c) The Monkeyhouse
