Legend of the Honey Island Swamp Monster

2008 NR

Man or beast? Fact or folklore? Filmmaker Dana Holyfield explores the mystery of Louisiana's Honey Island swamp monster, a creature first sighted more than 40 years ago by Holyfield's grandfather Harlan E. Ford and fellow hunters. Witnesses, including a member of Ford's hunting party, tell their stories, and Holyfield discovers tracks allegedly made by the beast. But it's Ford's four-decade-old 8mm footage that may make you a believer.
