Editorial Reviews

It has been sighted 42,000 times in 68 countries, a vicious creature of myth and legend called Sasquatch, Yeti, and perhaps most infamously, Bigfoot. We ve hunted it for years. But what happens when it decides to hunt us? For newly paraplegic mountain climber Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy), the horror hits home when this ravenous beast attacks a remote forest community. Will its next hot meal be a group of knucklehead hunters (including Lance Henriksen of ALIENS & Jeffrey Combs of RE-ANIMATOR), a skeptical police chief (Paul Gleason of DIE HARD), a cabin full of nubile co-eds (including Ashley Hartman of THE O.C.), or a trapped Preston himself? Rex Linn (CSI: MIAMI) and Dee Wallace-Stone (CUJO) co-star in this wild and gruesome horror shocker that Fangoria calls the best serious fright film ever made about Bigfoot!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Better Bigfoot October 9, 2006
Format:DVD
Compared to many recent Bigfoot-inspired flicks, "Abominable" is a true work of art. Consider that its biggest competition comes from "Sasquatch," "Sasquatch Hunters," and the awful "Clawed," and I'm sure you'll agree with me. Perhaps it doesn't deserve four stars (three-and-a-half would be a better rating), but this movie just has too much going for it than to toss it to the wayside.

First of all, the story is a labor of love by director/writer Ryan Schifrin. In the commentary and the documentary, "Back to Genre: Making Abominable," Schifrin comes across as a very likeable, very grounded guy. You can't not want to cheer for him and his creation. He managed to pick up a third-tier leading man, Matt McCoy, to take the lead role, used the creature designer, Christien Tinsley, as probably the funniest jerk in recent flicks, scooped up the legendary Lance Henriksen, Jeffrey Combs and Dee Wallace Stone for key cameo roles and the unforgettably funny Paul Gleason (The Breakfast Club) to portray the local sheriff.

Secondly, the actual DVD is awesome considering it is an independently produced film. It comes in a nice sleeve like most popular big studio flicks do. It's got wonderful liner notes by Schifrin and a nice tribute to Paul Gleason. Also, the artwork is top-notch. You'll recognize the style used as that of Drew Struzan. You know who he is, he designed the "Star Wars" posters, the "Indiana Jones" posters, and a ton of others. As far as extras are concerned, there's the aforementioned documentary and commentary, outtakes and bloopers, extended and deleted scenes, storyboard and stills gallery, a student film by Schifrin and the screenplay for those with DVD-ROM capabilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rendition of Bigfoot! December 29, 2006
Format:DVD
I recently caught this movie on the Sci-Fi channel. I thought that is was just going to be another lame movie about Bigfoot. But, I was wrong. The movie starts with a great bigging mystery that hooks you well. That made me want to watch more. So I stayed and watched more of the movie and began to get fairly involved. After the initial hook, the pace slows down a little to get the storyline started. Basically the movie is about a man who lived in this small town and did a lot of rock climbing while he was there. His wife supposedly dies durring a rock climbing accident. But he knows that it was bigfoot that did it. He returns to his home in the mountains with his nurse as he is now paralized from the waist down. While there a group of girls move into the house across the street. Well, I'm sure you can tell that this is the main part of the story. Well, the man sees Bigfoot and for the next few days he terrorizes everyone there.

Overall, I thought it was a great flick. Worthy of a good award somewhere. The effects are great and the story keeps you on your toes. I usually never find myself yelling at my TV but I ended up screaming for them to run. I would say that if you are going to see a new bigfoot movie, see this one. A+

3.0 out of 5 stars They ALMOST had it right! May 1, 2008
Format:DVD
The good things about this film:

1. The acting isn't bad. In fact it is quite good in some instances despite the sometimes campy dialogue(which thankfully doesn't plague too much of the film). Compare it to most other b-horror flicks and you'd be hard-pressed not to consider these actors for Oscars!

2. The whole "something's out there" feel that the film starts out with. It's what made "Halloween", "Jaws" and "Alien" almost unbearably suspenseful. The first 20 or so minutes of this movie were damn scary and it felt as if FINALLY a horror filmmaker was going to deliver the goods(the opening scene was absolutely terrifying).

3. Judging from the interviews the director seemed to have all the right influences from a horror movie standpoint. We were right on the same page when he spoke of what frightened him most in films he liked.

4. It was shot well. The locations and the camera work- fantastic! It really had that creepy, isolated feel. I almost heard the opening monologue from the tv show "Tales From the Darkside" going off in my head when they showed all the pretty scenery at the start.

The Bad:
1. They showed the monster too much. WAY too much. It was much more frightening when caught in brief glimpses. It was a scary looking thing when it wasn't moving. As soon as it moved it reminded me of something from Puf'n'stuff or Lidsville. The director should have taken a cue from "Alien" and just showed the beast in fleeting glimpses(the face in the window was a great scare, by the way).

2. Cop outs/cliches. Whenever a horror movie resorts to gratuitous gore, nudity or mounds of insects I yawn. It's almost a way of showing me that you don't feel that your work can stand on it's own merits so you have to throw in cheapo "thrills".

5.0 out of 5 stars what a delicious little monster movie November 13, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was a throwback to monster movies of the early 70s, with a slasher edge to it, which makes it a whole lotta fun. Great cast of horror alumni, including everyone from Dee Wallace Stone to modern day scream queen Tiffany Shepis, some campy, over the top acting, some gruesome gore, a great hokey monster costume, and some real suspenseful moments. This is one of those films you'll end up watching time and time again if it should come on cable.
