Mr. sanford, you said

they shot at you? At me?

Damn right I'm sure. I've never been so close to

death in my entire life, and I sure don't want

to get any closer. You mean to tell me that you tried to serve notice

three times on those son of a b*tches,

is that right? And then they give

us this crap? Don't you worry about

a thing, Mr. sanford. We're gonna

change all of that. I mean, we're gonna

change it all... Today. Wait, we killed three

people yesterday. We can't get away

with that. They're coming again,

Dwayne, ain't they? That's what

Todd believes. Dwayne, let's get

away from here. Le-let 'em have

the place. Shut up! Oh hell,

let's get out. Don't do anything

until I tell you, just watch that window. I swear, I depend on you.

Go on and get that ammo! Get that ammo.

Get it, get it, get it! Mr. Monroe! Todd or

Dwayne Monroe! It's me again, Benjamin sanford of the

shreveport union bank. Now I'm just doing my job. The court has ordered that

i should give you these papers and that you should vacate

these premises immediately. Do you hear me? Get back! Let him have it! Well here it is. I'll show you the inside first and then we'll head

around to the outside. Well now, here it is. I want you to remember now,

it's about 40 acres. Two bedrooms upstairs

and an inside bath. The wardrobe is good. I want you to look

at this place and think about what it could

be like with a woman's touch. Now over here's

the living room, we've even got a fireplace. - Ben, it's beautiful, isn't it?

- Yeah. Yeah. Now, there are three

barns on the property, all their fences are good.

There are three Wells that pump but unfortunately,

the mineral rights don't come with the house, they belong

to the previous owner. Yeah. Well, they don't make

'em like this anymore. I'd sure like to roll up

my sleeves and get to work on

this place. Yeah, you mean roll up

my sleeves, don't you? Come on, let me show you

the bedrooms upstairs. Alright. I'll try to push

these papers through, I figure you two want to move

in as soon as you can. Alright? Listen, why don't you

stay here a while? Maybe you want to

figure things out. Make sure you lock up and

you just drop the keys back off at my office. Alright, thank you. You know honey,

i have a feeling we'd have a great life here. Yeah. Can't you hear all those kids

running around, wrestling with the

dogs and all? Thought I'd come by

and see how you're doing. Congratulations

on your new home. You know, we're real lucky getting the financing

through that quick. I mean with the war and

everything going on these days. That was really good

of you Mr. rudd. Well you know, it's kind

of a special day for me too. I mean it's a pleasure

to have new neighbors and uh,

make them happy. Appreciate that. Oh, by the way Mrs. Watkins

i uh, found another key, thought you might want it. Great, thanks. Well, I uh, guess

i better be going. Hey, well, good luck

to both of you huh? - Thank you.

- Thanks. Well, guess we better

start unpacking. Yup. What's this? Letter. "Welcome from your neighbors

down the road. Call me, olie Gibson. 931.

Come by for coffee and cakes." - Well that's nice.

- Yeah, isn't it? Well, where do you

want to start? Well... Well you could take me

upstairs, we should set up the bedroom

first, don't you think? That's the best offer

I've had in a long time. I'll see you around 6. Okay, have a nice day.

Try not to be late, okay? Yeah, I will. I'm going into town and

get some groceries and stuff. Okay, long walk. I need the exercise. -L'll see you later.

- Okay. Listen John,

we've got ten wagons outside. Well, I know, but then you

promised me those two sixteens

for the belt two hours ago! Another two hours? Alright.

Do the best you can. - Hey Ben,

- hey, you're quite a slaughter. Looks like you've got

your hands full there, huh? Yeah, Mr. Buckner's not

going to be too pleased, that machine is falling apart. You're right, he's not

going to be too pleased. Listen, he wanted me to be sure

and invite you over to his place on Sunday,

he's having the annual picnic for the company employees. So he said to get your

wife and come on over. Tell him,

"thank you very much." I should know what's what

by then. Well, alright.

I'll see you then. Alright. - How many did you order, there?

- Four. Four? That looks like a nine. Mrs. Watkins! Real nice to see you in town. Well, you're the

first one to say so. These townspeople don't take

too kindly to newcomers. Oh, well you can't take

the townspeople seriously, see they... do you mind if i

call you Ruth? You see they're kind

of shy with strangers at first, but before

you know it... You're going to be hearing

all the gossip. Well a smile or a

nod will do for now, and thank you for yours. - You have a nice day now.

- Thank you, see you later. Bye bye. "To occupant". Well,

that's me alright. Fall is here. We're losing all the leaves. Well, how was work? Oh, it was nice enough. All the boys down there

are nice enough. There was some trouble

with the old machines, though. We got invited to an employee

picnic on Sunday by Mr. Buckner. What's the matter? Ben, can we go to church

on Sunday? Yeah. What brought that on? Well... Look at this. Where'd you get this? It was in the mailbox. I don't know if the postman

brought it or somebody

just left it, I don't know. Well, I think it makes

no difference who brought it. I don't think

Charles B. Pierce

Charles B. Pierce (June 16, 1938 – March 5, 2010) was an American film director, screenwriter, producer, set decorator, cinematographer and actor, and is considered one of the first modern independent filmmakers. Pierce directed thirteen films over the span of 26 years, but is best known for his cult hits The Legend of Boggy Creek (1973) and The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976). An Arkansas resident most of his life, Pierce made his directorial debut with Boggy Creek, a faux documentary-style film inspired by the legend of the Bigfoot-like Fouke Monster. The low-budget film grossed roughly $25 million, and Pierce followed that success with several inexpensive, regional films set in the southern United States, including The Town That Dreaded Sundown, based on the true story of the Phantom Killer murders in Texarkana. Pierce continued directing films into the 1980s, when he wrote the story for the Clint Eastwood film Sudden Impact. For that screenplay, he is said to have written the phrase, "Go ahead, make my day," which became one of the most famous movie quotes in history. After years of pressure from producers, Pierce directed a Boggy Creek sequel, Boggy Creek II: And the Legend Continues, which he considered the worst film of his career; it was later riffed on by the comedy television series Mystery Science Theater 3000. more…
