SNOWBEAST (TV MOVIE) : A made for US T.V movie that was made to cash in upon with America's renewed obsession with the legend of Bigfoot in the 1970's. SNOWBEAST is a run of the mill Yeti/Abominable Snowman/ Bigfoot film of the 1970's that is not accidently influenced by Steven Spielberg's JAWS . Due to its Made- For-TV realise all the kills that take place are done by the screen turning red (which made it easy to slip in advertisements for the Broadcasters).
Plot: Sees a small Colorado Town during its winter festival being terrorised by an unknown killer. The culprit turns out to be Bigfoot, a not so happy mythical ape creature. So it's up to a small band of people to go out and to kill it.
Thoughts: With a narrative & POV shots that are a direct rip-off form JAWS it's lucky that the subject material was about Bigfoot, one might mistake the film for not having a great white shark. Now how could I not like this tacky TV movie? My rating for SNOWBEAST is a solid 50%.
Worth a peep, but know what you're getting yourself into.
