from Birth of a Legend: The Story of the Wawa
(US-2007; dir: Steve Wiggins)
Every town has a local legend. Sweet Tee was no different — it’s just that Sweet Tee’s legend was eating people.
This tiny little indie just came out of nowhere — “nowhere” being Alabama, of course — to take the kaiju community by surprise. It features one of the most insane creature ideas ever — a giant atomic swamp monster formed out of “radiated plastic fishing worms” merged with “catfish DNA”! The craziest thing of all is the fact that it doesn’t even fit that description in ways that one might imagine it would. Hell, even the name is nuts: “WAWA”, which stands for “West-Alabama-Whoop-Ass”. This is one crazy kaiju that has to be seen to be believed.
Sneakin’ closer … closer … closer…
It just wants to be loved!
“Clean your windscreen, sir?”
“I’m lookin’ for me contacts … and you’re not helpin’!”

This tiny little film is so much fun!! The concept of the monster is pure genius and it really looks insane!! The film is full of southern stereotypes with names like; ‘Catfish’,’Tird’,’Biggers’,Smiley’,’Boom-Boom’,and ‘Chigger’.To name a few.The creators are real cut ups.It’s pretty funny,and they really achieved a lot for such a tiny budget.
I know you’re certainly keen on it, Avery. I hope to see it one of these days!
