Movie Info

With 42,000 sightings in 68 countries, the elusive woodland creature known as Sasquatch, Yeti, and Bigfoot is one of the most enduring natural mysteries ever known to man. Hunted by humans for hundreds of years, the formerly reclusive man-like beast strikes out against his would-be captors in a mountain-based tale of survival and horror starring Jeffrey Combs, Lance Henriksen, and Dee Wallace-Stone. Years ago, mountain climber Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) suffered a terrible injury that left him

There's no salvaging this.

You keep looking for a sign that its young writer-director, Ryan Schifrin, is going for a tongue-in-cheek romp. But no, he seems to be deadly earnest.

Not quite aptly titled, but close.

Not only are slasher/horror/splatter films enjoying a sharp spike in popularity, right now they're also where one can find the best comedy.

To say that "Abominable" is the best movie ever to premiere on a basic cable channel is degrading both to the movie and to Bigfoot.

Excels in spite of the major plot holes, mainly because it has such an entertaining attitude about itself...

Thoroughly uneven yet undeniably entertaining...

Abominable is a rip-roaring monster movie, and it doesn't try to be anything else.

It has the requisite number of scary moments, but, as is often the case, keeps the jeopardy up by having people behave inexplicably stupidly.

April 20, 2006

An entirely familiar yet slyly entertaining little throwback to the days of Grizzly, Pumpkinhead, and Prophecy -- with a big dose of Rear Window tossed in, just to amp the tension up a little.

One of those fright fests that isn't so much frightening as it is funny... and not in a good way.

Schifrin's modest thriller delivers some gross-out gore in the last third, but spends most of its running time building up a tidy atmosphere of mounting dread.

Any one else think the monster in this looks like Stacey Keach?

Well despite afew decent actors involved ( Gleason, Henriksen, McCoy) this is total B-movie fair. It takes AGES to actually get to the point of the film which is simply a Bigfoot type creature running around the woods and killing some sexy girls and afew other guys in some remote cabins which is OK I suppose, in places, but really terrible once the creatures face is shown, laughably so.
Afew nice touches here and there with the creature but most of this is painfully bad and almost plays out like the original 'King Kong' film with dumb screaming girls being grabbed by big hairy hands whilst the annoying McCoy just sits in his wheelchair (yes you read correctly) and watches with the occasional 'hey watch out!'.

Gotta love the ending though, almost like a 'Scooby Doo' moment.

Bloody atrocious remake of Rear Window with a Sasquatch thrown in. Yep that's right. I suppose it's quite entertaining to see a cheap horror film try something new but by mixing it up with one of the masters of suspense you just have to laugh at the absurdity. McCoy is far too serious in the central role and the Sasquatch is simply dis horrific, and not like it should be. It looks fake, it moves fake. They should have just got the annoying, hairy ginger bloke to be the monster, now that WAS scary. So bad that some of the moments are enjoyable and there are also some genuinely jumpy moments, had we not be shown the monster it may have even been slightly scary.

This movie is very slow paced. Very. The creature looks very fake. It has very stale acting. But that doesn't stop this gorefest to being a very awesome yet graphic horror movie.
