Actress talks BOGGY CREEK not-a-remake

By Michael Gingold
Continuing Fango’s conversation with Texas-based actress Julin (click here to see the first part, with exclusive modeling pics), she also talked about her experiences on BOGGY CREEK—a movie that, despite its title, “is more of a fictional story” than the 1972 horror-docudrama THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK, Julin tells us. “It’s kind of a remake, but they don’t want to call it one.”

Directed by Brian T. Jaynes, the movie stars Texas Battle, Melissa Carnell, Stephanie Honore, Damon Lipari and Shavon Kirksey as young people who become stranded in the titular locale and are terrorized by a savage Sasquatch. “It was shot in the middle of nowhere, in these awesome swamps in Uncertain, Texas—that’s really a town,” Julin says. “I play the first girl who was abducted way back when, and the main action starts a year after that. I kind of contribute to the whole story when it all comes together. I don’t want to give away too much, but there was one scene where I was covered head to toe in mud. I won’t say what happens, but that’s me when you see it.

“I had to get right in the swamp, and at first I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ ” she continues. “There were alligators, snakes and you couldn’t see under the water. But there was a guy there with a huge machete, just hanging out, so I thought, ‘Cool, I guess I feel safe.’ ”

Concerns about the local wildlife aside, Julin didn’t have any problems going up the CREEK. “Brian was great,” she recalls. “He shot it with terrific camera movements and was super-nice, especially when I was covered in the mud. That was a hard scene, and I was like, ‘Can I get a closed set on this?’ You’ll see why when you see the movie. And the Bigfoot looked very cool.” She also got to hang with a co-star from a couple of her other upcoming fright films. “My friend Denise Williamson and I got to go up there together; we both did voiceover work on SWEATSHOP and she was in SPIRIT CAMP in the very beginning, playing a random girl making out with her boyfriend in the woods. We all partied at the Uncertain Tavern after we were done.”

While she was unfamiliar with the ’72 BOGGY CREEK and the real-life monster reports that inspired it, Julin was soon schooled in the region’s monster lore. “Once I told people I was doing this movie, they were like, ‘Oh my God, that’s awesome. I remember that!’ And where we were shooting, there was a Bigfoot Crossing. I said, ‘Is there really a Bigfoot out here?’ and they were like, ‘There have been sightings before.’ But once you do so many scary movies, you’re kind of like, ‘Eh, I’m not scared of anything!’ ” BOGGY CREEK’s official website (just a homepage right now) can be found here.
