I'm back there as bait?
An American and a man from Britain lead an expedition into the Himalayans in hopes of discovering the infamous yeti. The two men have very different motives for why they want to find the yeti. As they get closer and closer to accomplishing their goal, men start disappearing. Are the yetis taking them, or is there another reason why they are dying?

"Listen...a sort of cry..."
Val Guest, director of Casino Royale (1967), The Day the Earth Caught Fire, The Quatermass Xperiment I & II, The Boys in Blue, and The Diamond Mercenaries, delivers The Abominable Snowman. The storyline for this picture is just okay and a bit slower than I hoped for. The action scenes are far and few between and this movie is more about isolation than the monsters. The cast delivers above average performances and includes Peter Cushing, Forrest Tucker, Maureen Connell, and Robert Brown.
"What's at the end of the line, a circus or a zoo?"
I DVR'd this picture this holiday season because it starred the great Peter Cushing and I always DVR every Vincent Price and Peter Cushing picture I have not seen...and this movie fell on that list. This was an above average horror movie with a great ending. I would have liked to see some more action and some more of the yetis; but overall, I'd recommend seeing this once.
