"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
