1.0 out of 5 stars Low-Budget Boredom August 9, 2013
Format:DVD
Despite the contribution of Oscar-winning cinematographer Floyd Crosby, "The Snow Creature" (1954) is bottom-of-the-barrel monster slush with a no-name cast and unrelenting ineptitude. A dreary abomination guaranteed to induce sleep. Produced and directed by W. Lee Wilder - Billy's less-talented older brother.

2.0 out of 5 stars A beastly trip to Snowman's land November 30, 2011
Format:DVD
THE SNOW CREATURE was directed by W. Lee 'Willie' Wilder, the older estranged brother of Billy Wilder. This odd story was written by Willie's son, Myles. L.A.'s Griffith Park Bronson caves and canyon stand in for rugged Tibetan wilderness.

It's the story of Himalaya climbers, a botanical expedition attempting to catalog life forms in the harsh climate of these tallest mountains on Earth. Instead of gathering permafrost lichens and the like, the group captures alive a Yeti, aka "abominable snowman," this after their lead sherpa takes over by force upon hearing that his wife was kidnapped by one of these monsters. His intent to kill the tranquilized creature is thwarted when the expedition's original leaders wrest back control from him.

They instead ship the hairy naked beast, possibly played by incredibly tall (7' 7") Lock Martin, in a refrigerated crate to Los Angeles. While a debate at Customs rages over whether a Yeti is animal or human, it escapes and after threading its way though a meat processing cooler, the snowman runs amuck in the muck of the sewers, that is until a cop blows it away with his service revolver.

.
Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

Niche market DVD purveyor RCF's dubs are "best available source," with quality that varies from only fair to very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Attack of the Guy in the Moth Eaten Fur! June 26, 2012
Format:DVD
When you are seeking exciting adventures in botany in the Himalayas, I bet you never thought you would run into a Yeti. Become a botanist, see the world, and be attacked by imaginary creatures! You will find all this excitement and more in this movie.

Dr. Frank Parrish (Paul Langton, who saw much better days in movies such as "30 Seconds Over Tokyo" and "They Were Expendable") leads an expedition into the Himalayas to collect samples of possibly undiscovered plants. Veteran photographer and alcoholic Peter Wells (Leslie Denison) accompanies Dr. Parrish. Things seem to be going well until a guy in a costume that appears to have seen better days kidnaps the young, beautiful wife of Sherpa guide Subra (Teru Shimada). As you can probably understand, neither Parrish nor Wells believes that the Yeti exists, and they insist the expedition continue as originally planned. However, Subra has other plans, and takes over the expedition. The excitement really mounts now!

The expedition goes up hills. The expedition goes down hills. Sometimes the expedition goes up a hill for a while, and then goes down the same hill so that they can go up another hill. Occasionally the expedition stops so that the lead characters can utter chilling dialogue. You hope your eyes can remain unglazed long enough to get to the end of the movie.

After nearly being killed by a Yeti, the expedition finds a cave containing a Yeti family. In a moment of insanity, the male Yeti causes a cave-in that kills his Yeti wife and Yeti child, and leaves him stunned. Apparently Yeti are not any brighter than some people. The expedition captures the Yeti, and after a fierce struggle, Dr. Parrish regains control of the expedition from Subra.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's a dead radio machine December 5, 2009
Format:DVD
Dr. Frank Parrish (Paul Langton) goes on an expedition to the Himalayas. There he recruits native bearers. The natives look surprisingly with language and garb as WWII Japanese.

Half way to his goal he is informed that the mythical yeti has pilfered the head Sherpa, Subra's (Teru Shimada), wife. Of course Dr. Parrish laughs it off. This sets Subra on a course of revenge, including stealing the guns and whisky. In the process using his phony sounding stilted English and a rifle, shoots the radio machine.

Sure enough they stumble upon a yeti family that tries to self destruct. The male yeti (Lock Martin) is saved and like King Kong is drugged and flown by way of TWA prop plane to Los Angeles. When he naturally escapes there is no Empire state building and he does not think of L.A. City Hall, so he take a clue from another well know 1945 minus "Them!" and finds a secret way of getting around. (Not like we did not think of it first).

Every time he finds a victim there is a white arrow on the street.
This is one cool yeti. So the question is does he get away? Will the authorities going after him get eaten by giant ants? I am sort of half hoping that he meets up with Dr. Frank Parrish's wife.

The filming location is the same as "Robot Monster", Bronson Caves, Bronson Canyon, Griffith Park - 4730 Crystal Springs Drive, Los Angeles, California, USA
