4.0 out of 5 stars This is such a great piece of spooky '70's nostalgia! December 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Oh boy oh boy! Do I remember this one!

And the `70's in general. A time where the paranormal, the Bermuda Triangle, and yes, monsters were very much in vogue.

I will never forget seeing this film at a local mall outside of Richmond, Virginia in 1975.

My dear, dear father, who was/is a devout minister or "elder" in the Jehovah's Witness religion originally didn't want to take me to see this film thinking that it was somehow potentially 'demon possessed'. When we got to the mall movie multi-plex in order to (so I thought) actually see it, he flatly said, "No. I am not seeing that movie!" and instead we saw Robert Wise's "The Hindenburg" with George C. Scott, which I truly enjoyed.

However, I was practically breaking into a cold sweat with the knowledge that just on the other side of the fire wall, in the next mini-theatre, the really creepy wonders of which I lusted over - those of the Yeti, the Loch Ness Monster, and our favorite, native American huge hairy biped, the great Sasquatch, Ohma, or Bigfoot were playing to audiences who must be delightfully scared at the eye-witness accounts, the re-enactments, the tales of the historic sightings, the photographs and those truly awesome plaster casts of the bigfoot prints!

Well, I don't remember exactly how, but my father finally relented on another night and he, my mom and I, at the age 15 and a half, went to see The Mysterious Monsters. I think that a partial reason that my dad gave in was that he liked Peter Graves in the CBS adventure/drama series "Mission Impossible".

The film did not disappoint me. I was hooked from the second Peter Graves introduced the film and said, "This may be the most startling motion picture that you will ever see.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Scariest Movie Ever Made October 21, 2011
By sfmar
If you were lucky enough to grow up as a pre-teen in that great decade of the 70's, you'll remember how that decade was full of fads, the newest "Big Thing" of the moment that changed from week to week, and Bigfoot! Yes, Bigfoot. The 70's were the heyday for the sasquatch, yeti and Loch Ness Monster. There were documentaries aplenty about these strange and elusive creatures, and kids like myself couldn't get enough of them! We read every book and saw every TV show that would come on about the mysterious creatures.

And then along came this bad boy.

Over the years I've talked with other guys my age and asked them if they ever remember seeing this movie. It is amazing how many of them did, along with myself. It also amazing that to this very day, almost everyone of them says this was the scariest movie they ever saw. And I'd have to agree with them.

For kids who were under 16 or so back then, the concept of living creatures like the bigfoot here in America and also in the Himalayas (the yeti)were totally accepted as fact. Now, take that one idea and carry it over to watching a film that is a no-holds-barr attempt to show the creature as not only mysterious, but potentially mean and harmful to whomever may run across its path. I saw this in the theater when it was released in '75. All of little boys came out of that theater (wherever you may have lived and seen it), scarred for life!

I lived in metro Atlanta, GA. The closest thing I had for a forest (where Bigfoot could possibly be hiding and waiting for me)was a line of 4 or 5 trees separating our house from a busy main road. It didn't matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 70s Nostolgia March 1, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was probably about 10 or 12 years old when I first saw this movie (on television, probably during the summer vacation), and although I now approach some of it with lighthearted skepticism and grammatical criticism ("Hey! The 'Surgeon's Photo' was established as a hoax almost a decade and a half ago!"; "Don't say 'facts', 'proof' and 'prove'; say 'evidence', 'suggest' or 'support'"), back then I accepted it all without question. It probably aired about once a year through the mid 1980s (during the height of the cryptozoological/paranormal documentary years) and I watched it as often as I could (but was pretty much subject to the whims of the station owners and programming executives of the time; this was in the dark ages of home theater, before DVRs, Tivo and even VCRs, remember), until it all but disappeared from the scene. Armchair cryptozoologists like myself were forced to wait almost two decades before it would be made officially available on DVD.

The audio [on the Cheesy Flicks DVD edition] isn't perfect, and the picture is actually pretty poor (there's probably only so much that can be accomplished, even with modern remastering and restorative technology, and especially when you allow for the likelihood that the original video probably hasn't been treated with a whole lot of TLC over the past three decades), but are both are far superior to other copies I've owned on both DVD and VHS (which were in retrospect, of questionable legality and almost certainly bootleg, respectively).

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor video transfer December 26, 2010
By Mik Mo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Saw this movie as a child and it stuck with me ever since. Saw it on TV countless times, had a VCR copy I'd taped until recently accidentally taped over it. Saw this on Amazon and decided to order it. When I watched it, however, I was disappointed to see that the video transfer was of the poorest quality. If I'd had the equipment, I could have transferred my VHS copy to DVD and got a better picture and sound quality. Amazon definitely needs to be more aware of the quality of some of the products it sells...this one definitely fell through the cracks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality DVD and an Unconvincing Premise
Poor quality, looks like it was taped off a TV set rather than from the original TV series. Peter Graves tries to make the point of being a skeptic but also is easy to convince. Read more
