Nice Monster Film from Toho
25 January 2013 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Ju Jin Yuki Otoko (1955)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This Toho film from director Ishiro Honda was pretty much pulled from release and has been hidden by the studio ever since then. If you have seen the film it's probably been the American version known as HALF HUMAN, which cut out over a hours worth of footage and replaced it with new scenes featuring John Carradine. In the uncut Japanese original, a group of friends go skiing but two of them decide to stay in a cabin where they are attacked by a creature. One is killed on the spot but another one is missing so a search party goes out looking for him. JU JIN YUKI OTOKO isn't a masterpiece and if you've seen HALF HUMAN than you've seen the majority of the Yeti footage. It's really hard to judge this film because the only thing out there is un-subtitles and since I don't speak Japanese it was impossible for me to really follow the story. There's a lot of dialogue here so you really are missing stuff by not having any subtitles. The actual story is easy to follow but with all the dialogue you have to think a lot more was going on. Still, for the most part I thought there was some pretty good stuff here including the music score, the cinematography and especially the look of the creatures. Yes, there are more than one and they look quite good and very realistic. The performances for the most part seemed to be good and director Honda has no problem at building up a rather nice atmosphere. Considering how long this movie has been put in a vault, it's probably highly likely that a Special Edition is coming anytime soon. Until it does, the bootleg version out there will have to do or you can check out the easier to find American cut, which on its own isn't too bad in a campy sort of way.
