Movie Info

This is a so-so early Hammer horror film from Nigel Kneale, who also wrote The Quatermass Experiment. Forrest Tucker and botanist Peter Cushing lead an expedition to the Himalayan Mountains (actually the Pyrenees, but who's complaining?) in search of the legendary Yeti. Several mysterious locals tell them to stay away with the sort of cryptic warnings found only in horror movies, but they carry on regardless. As expected, the furry beast is alive and well; meanwhile, members of the expedition

I thought the adventure film was only passable when it should have been more exciting.

Audience Reviews for Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas

Instead of focusing on a big hairy monster, this early Hammer horror concentrates on script and story. I was expecting questionable acting and wobbly set pieces but I couldn't have been more wrong. The performances and dialogue are both brilliant and the snowy mountain scenes are impressive. This little b-movie needs some love, it's deserves it!

This movie is silly and predictable. An explorer goes up into some mountains somewhere and runs into an abominable snowman. It goes downhill from there, but there are a couple of exciting scenes, though.

An intelligent film, scripted by Nigel Kneale, which postulates that the abominable snowman is a near relative to homo sapiens, biding it's time until we have destroyed ourselves before taking our place. The genuine mountain footage was shot with stand-ins; the actors never left the studio. For the most part the location and studio footage is well matched. This is a much better film than its reputation suggests.
