This episode certainly predates "Splash" (Tom Hanks, Darryl Hannah) with a similar plot. Nice moment when he shoots what he believes to be the swamp monster. Fantasy, non-human intelligent beings.

Andy

I like the doubt presented by the men at the end. Was there really a swamp monster or was it a ploy by the girl to bet the boy?

Ron

This was the one that scared me The most as a child. I had taped it and listened again and again.

I remember listening to these shows in my early 20's; especially on long nights crossing from coast to coast on road trips. I am glad that they are so easily listened to now in the age of the internet.

Thomas J. Radke

An ecologist whose work takes him into a swamp happens upon a woman who claims to have been a captive of a swamp creature.

Rey

Kinda slow, kinda predictable. The attempt is in the psychology.

Carlitos Delight

Chosen for the title... I like swamps, I like creatures and I particularly like swamp creatures... This one is not bad. There are lots of neat elements. A nicely described "swamp man" of legend. A woman who might be either imaginary, supernatural but in danger or supernatural and dangerous. The strange woman in the show is Oo-dee-nay... which could be a variant of undine. It never seemed scary but at least was interesting.

Apple

A man rescues a woman from quicksand and is later stalked by a creature that inhabits the swamp.

Christine Joy Blender

A woman is rescued by a recluse who lives in a swamp. He has chosen a solitary existence because of facial disfigurement he suffered after a tragic accident in which he lost his fiancé. This new woman proves seems to care deeply for her rescuer and shares a salve she claims will cure his disfigurement. Upon doing so, she very quickly falls ill.

Arnold Estregan

4 stars... Other than the description of the swamp man it was a really good listen. Has commercials.

Wisconsin

Janney is superb in this role-one of the absolute best in the long esteemed history of CBS RMN.

JS

Good episode that was a little obvious as to the conclusion, but still an enjoyable listen.

Alec

The ones that I enjoy hearing over and over again. love it

Russell

THE CREATURE FROM THE SWAMP. I consider it as a Horror-Romance Mystery

Russell

I really enjoyed this episode, and the cast is perfect with most of my favorite regulars.

Dan

Joan Loring always sounds as if she has a chronic head cold. Her voice is so annoying that I find it hard to focus on any of the stories she is in. She always plays some weak female whose cloying neediness for the male she inevitably attracts is just too much. If she could just get over the damn sniffles.

Christine

It's stories like this that made me think quicksand would be a much bigger problem as I got older. In my almost 45 years on this planet, I have yet to encounter quicksand.
