Charles B. Pierce (June 16, 1938 – March 5, 2010) was an American film director, screenwriter, producer, set decorator, cinematographer and actor. Pierce is best known for the minor cult hits The Legend of Boggy Creek and The Town That Dreaded Sundown. 
A former Texarkana, Arkansas advertising salesman, Pierce began making low budget films in the early 1970s. His first film, The Legend of Boggy Creek, became a modest hit and grossed approximately $20 million. Pierce continued to make regional films, including a sequel to Boggy Creek entitled Boggy Creek II: And the Legend Continues in 1985.
In addition to directing, Pierce has starred in several of his own films, including The Town That Dreaded Sundown and Boggy Creek II. He also served as a writer on the 1983 Clint Eastwood film, Sudden Impact.
Pierce fell from the movie industry's public eye shortly after 1985's Boggy Creek II, slipping into relative obscurity until his 1997 interview with Fangoria magazine. Ten years later, in an interview with the The Austin Chronicle, film directors Duane Graves and Justin Meeks revealed they were in talks with Pierce to bring him aboard as a co-producer of The Wild Man of the Navidad, their homage to 70's drive-in creature features. He reportedly turned them down because he instead wanted to direct the project, which was later released by IFC Films in 2009.
Pierce died on March 5, 2010, at a Dover, Tennessee nursing home. He was 71. A cause of death was not immediately available.
