They finally find the Yeti, which will make you laugh with his ferocious muttonchop sideburns and afro. Of course they decide to take a cue from every escaped monkey movie ever made and transport him (in a custom made refrigerator!) back to Los Angeles, where he terrorizes the greater Los Angeles sewer system for the last twenty or so minutes of the movie. Returning to his earlier thematic device, Director W. Lee Wilder takes tedium and boldly mixes it with unscariness by featuring, yes, you guessed it, MORE walking around, this time in the sewers. I am curious how much of the 69 minute running time of the film is shots of guys walking around. I thought about re-watching it and timing this, but that would be too insufferable, so I offer this estimate: 55 minutes or so are exciting walking around shots. Comically, the Yeti escapes while it is detained at LAX by an alert INS official (!) who is trying to correctly ascertain his immigration status! If only the INS was so thorough today!
I gave this thing two stars, but it probably deserves about one and a half stars. There are a few amusing campy moments in here, but not enough to make the pain worthwhile.
