Did You Know?


Five expedition members (Connie, Varga, Steve, Hud and Dr. Erickson) set out at night with flares to search for the Yeti, but a couple of shots of the members out on the mountain show six persons in the group, not five. Also, in those shots, the members are tied to one another with rope, but in close-ups immediately following, none of them has any rope tied to them. See more »

Trevor Hudson: You really believe in it.
Dr. Eric Erickson: It's hard not to when so many famous men stake their reputations on the fact.

Danger in the Himalayas
20 October 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Man Beast is one of several Yeti movies made in the 1950's. Though not brilliant, I quite enjoyed this one.

An expedition heads for the Himalayas to search for one of the party's brother, who has gone missing while on another trek. When they reach the higher regions, they encounter Yeti's and are put in more danger when it is revealed that one of the party is a mad scientist who has been cross breeding Yeti's with humans and is half Yeti himself. At the end, just two pf the party survive while the others are killed off in various ways. There is also an avalanche.

Man Beast contains some good scenery, even though it wasn't filmed on location in the Himalayas.

I've heard of nobody in the cast and their acting isn't brilliant either. You can clearly tell this movie was made on a low budget. Despite this, certainly worth a look.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
