Editorial Reviews

A killer beast on the rampage terrorizes a ski resort during a winter carnival. Based on the Bigfoot creature that was seen for over 100 years in Colorado and the Pacific Northwest. How can you stop this monstrous, Yeti-like beast? First get Bo Svenson ("Walking Tall Part II") and turn him loose against the scary, hairy Snowbeast...before it's too late! Yvette Mimieux, Robert Logan, and Clint Walker co-star in this made-for-TV creature feature. Joseph Stefano (Psycho, The Outer Limits) wrote the script taking much of the information from real-life expert Roger Patterson who had an encounter with a Bigfoot in 1967.

FIRST THOUGHTS: WITH GORE DOMINATING THE HORROR GENRE IT'S NICE TO SEE THE IMAGINATION CALLED UPON AGAIN

For me it is sad to see that most people found 'Snowbeast' to be boring and trivial. I say this because I have enjoyed watching this admittedly tame TV creature-feature with my daughter for the past 15 years. I introduced it to her on Video, having recalled seeing it as a TV movie when it was first released in 1977.

Yes, 'Snowbeast' promises more than it delivers, but I was able to feel OK when allowing my youngsters to watch this rather tame creature-feature which kept their interest without giving them nightmares.

IN A NUTSHELL: SNOWBEAST MAY BE A JAW'S RIP-OFF BUT JOE STEFANO IS AN EXCELLENT SCREENWRITER

One of the reasons that I wanted to see 'Snowbeast' when it was first on TV, nearly 30 years ago, was that the screenwriter, Joe Stefano, was the screenwriter for the original 'Psycho', directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and many of my favorite 'Outer Limit's' episodes. He always gives a good account of himself by forcing the viewer to use his/her imagination to enrich the experience. This works for me, but clearly the expectation of many creature-feature fans is for more explicit action and a more original plot. I do agree about the originality of the plot, but as for a more explicit tone, I think that sometimes less is better. This can of course be seen by some as promising more than is delivered. It is interesting to note that the film 'Tremors' which has been very well recieved, is even more of a rip-off of 'Jaws' than 'Snowbeast', yet it is a well-crafted film which includes quite a bit of gory horror.

If you grew up in the 70's like me you remember that phrase well. In a time before cable and V.C.R.'s, us old timers had to watch what came on and even had to go to the T.V. to change the channel(unless you could afford the high priced remote T.V.'s of the day). Every Friday night children like myself were treated to an episode of "The Night Stalker" (The best show ever to me at the age of 11) and at least one or two horror movies. "Snowbeast" was one of about five movies that showed up regularly on those long ago nights("Shock waves, "The Devil's Rain", "Race With The Devil" ,and "Terror At 37,000 Feet" rounded out the others) and at least every three to four months one would play.

The story, about a Bigfoot like snow monster was played as "Jaws" in the snow. At the age of 11 this movie was silly,but very cool and even scary at times. With fond memories I bought this one and sat down to get lost in it again one Friday night. Well I'm not 11 anymore and most of the scares are very lame now, but i still felt some magic as this piece of cheese unfolded in front of me. The actors try hard to give this "chiller"(snow, chiller get it!) some life and sometimes in spite of it's self it works.

Not for all taste to be sure, but if you are old enough to remember it, some small amount of fun can be had watching it, I recommend a snowy Friday night at about 12:00 o'clock

I don't get all of the negative reviews. This is a good horror movie. The acting is really good, the snowbeast scared the crap out of me, and the whole movie is just done well. No, this is not as good as Hammer Film's The Abominable Snowman, but it still is a good Yeti flick. Check it out, if you like Yeti movies, I think you will like this.

A true classic of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti genre, and held in high esteem by genre aficionados, Snowbeast stands head and shoulders above the pack. A wholly effective 1977 made for television offering, well scripted, acted, directed, et al.; Snowbeast harkens back to a time in which Bigfoot films were actually dignified efforts in film-making.

While most of the scares are conceptual (an approach sadly discarded to the detriment of newer offerings, such as the terrible Yeti: Maneater Series, and the completely atrocious Snow Beast (2011)), and it's not entirely original in scope (It is in fact a near exact re-telling of Jaws (Widescreen Anniversary Collector's Edition) (1975), which makes for simple and effective storytelling, and is especially satisfying if, like myself, you'd have preferred if Jaws were a pernicious Yeti), the film is nevertheless a substantial and well balanced effort; expertly scripted by Joseph Stefano, whose screenwriting credits include no less than Psycho (50th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray] (1960), and deftly directed by veteran television director Herb Wallerstein, whose vast resume includes directing episodes of Star Trek (the original series), The Brady Bunch, Happy Days, and Gunsmoke, amongst others. The acting as well is beyond reproach, which places Snowbeast at the top of the genre canon.
