Audience Reviews for Shriek of the Mutilated
Looking for Bigfoot? This may be as close to the truth as you will find. The acting is terrible, but what do you expect from a low budjet movie from the 70s. And speaking of the 70s, the clothing and hair are so 70s, what a flashback. I won't spoil the movie (as if that is possible) by telling how it ends. Look for suprizes. Another Halloween night movie. :-)
Much like the Schmuker's jelly ad where they say, "With a name like Schmuker's, you know it's gonna be good", the same logic applies to Shriek of the Mutilated. You just know it's gotta be good, and you're right on the money holmes. A group of students gather in the wilderness with a professor and (and I quote) his Indian, Laughing Crow (played by an Italian actor straight out of the Sopranos) to have an encounter with Bigfoot. Wonderful, mind-boggling stupidity ensues until the glorious reveal at the end that I would never dream of ruining for any potential viewers. This one is right up there with Demon Lover (AKA Coven) in the so awful it's amazing category in low budget, seventies American horror.
This is the kind of movie that, as teenagers, we made in our basements while our parents were working during those school-free summer months. Actually, this is the kind of movie that [i]inspired [/i]those movies of ours. Also, like our movies it's homemade, unbelievably goofy, and completely without budget. Findlay couldn't afford the rights to the hit song "Popcorn" by Hot Butter in the DVD release, which makes for interesting audio in the opening scenes. The plot really doesn't factor into this film at all. For me, all the fun is in seeing the 70s fashion, in the cheesy dialogue, and most importantly in watching a guy in a fur coat portray a yeti, which turns out to actually be a guy in a fur coat pretending to be a yeti. That is pure movie magic. An Oscar winner it may not be, but I do love it for it's quaint, tenacious spirit.
