News & Interviews for Abominable
Critic Reviews for Abominable
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 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.
Audience Reviews for Abominable
Well despite a few decent actors involved ( Gleason, Henriksen, McCoy) this is total B-movie schlock as if you didn't realise already. It takes AGES to actually get to the point of the film which is simply a Bigfoot type creature running around in the woods killing some sexy girls and a few other guys in some remote cabins. Its OK I suppose...in places, but really terrible once the creatures face is shown, laughably so.
A few nice moments here and there with the creature but most of this is painfully bad. Visually the story almost plays out like the original 'King Kong' 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 shouting out the occasional 'hey watch out!'.
Gotta love the ending though, almost like a 'Scooby Doo' moment.
Any one else think the monster in this looks like Stacey Keach?
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.
