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!

Why this movie is 5 stars
1) Starts the creeps immediately
2) Has plot, reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock's Birds but still not like it for those who don't like Hitchcock
3) Cliche enough to laugh at as creature feature lovers like me want but has great twists
4) Matt McCoy slams this movie with expression, drawing you in
5) And most importantly, a yeti bites a dude's face in half. Enough said.
The movie is suspenseful, expressive, and gorey in all the proportions. It's not mindless but not thought provoking. This is creature feature as it was meant to be. You must see it to believe it.
Best monster mash style movie in years
I can't remember if it was on "Chiller" or some other cable channel I was surfing the other night when I caught it just coming on...there wasn't anything else to watch, so I figured "why not?"
OK, us horror folks spend a lot of our time watching dreck, hoping against hope that on occasion, one punches through the gloom and turns out to be a genuinely inspired horror film...and I have to cast my vote for "Abominable" in this case. I quickly jumped on here to see if I could find it on DVD, and was thrilled to order it.
First time director Ryan Schifrin took a hundred thousand dollar budget and made a film that looked like two million, easy. Obviously a project made with passion for the genre, the production values, acting, sound and cinematography were in a class that denied the lack of funds for this indie outing. You have a who's who of horror here: Neal Fredericks (The Blair Witch Project, among others) as the director of photography, a cast that includes Dee Wallace, Lance Henricksen, Paul Gleason, Jeffrey Combs, and one of my faves, Tiffany Shepis. The story is well-written and paced superbly, combining elements of Hitchcock's "Rear Window", and a dose of "Alien". The effects are inspired for the budget, and surprisingly gory in the uncut, theatrical version, and I thought the "Sasquatch" was convincing (although I agree with someone else's opinion that it looked a little like the old character actor Jack Elam, but hey, I thought HE was pretty creepy looking anyways). Heck, the sound editing was even done at Skywalker Sound, and the film's poster was done by none other than Drew Struzan...a pretty impressive pedigree for a little independent film, and a sure sign that at times, all the stars align, and a diamond is formed from the coal that surrounds it.
The disc contains a great behind the scenes feature that goes into depth about Schifrin's love for the genre, including some great interviews and backstage glimpses...and the commentary is well-done and informative.
The total package is a good old-fashioned monster movie done right and delivering the goods. Fans of suspenseful horror, gory monster flicks, and just a good time in front of the screen should definitely check this one out.
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+
Because of the lead characters inability to walk and could only watch in horror thru binoculars attempting to warn people of the creature, led to the suspense. The movie actually reminded me of Hithcocks "Rear Window".
The one thing that really worried me...and I must know...how can a person, who has been chased thru the woods by a monster, escaped death after falling from a rope, screamed all thru the movie, and cried thru most, keep her blaringly red lipstick with copious amounts of lip gloss intact to the very end of the movie? I NEED TO KNOW THE BRAND OF LIPSTICK!
Seriously, the movie was good. I will watch it again!
