Synapse To Release Creature From Black Lake
Independent U.S. distributors Synapse Films confirmed today that they will bring to Blu-ray Jim McCullough's Creature from Black Lake (1978), starring Jack Elam, Dub Taylor, and Dennis Fimple. The release is expected to arrive on the U.S. market in 2015 after restoration work is completed.
Some fishermen are attacked in the Louisiana swamps. When the word gets out of a mysterious Bigfoot-type creature, two researchers come to a small town to study and hopefully discover what the beast is. Their research from some farmers help the two men to learn that the creature may be a very angry and murderous missing link.
This is a very exciting out-of-nowhere announcement from Synapse. I have the DVD from Hollywood Entertainment (whatever that is) that I got for $2 but I've put off watching it for a long time 0because the picture quality is so poor. Glad I waited.
