Storyline

Amidst a general melting of the ice caps, a weather station in the Himalayas is destroyed and Gamma I commander Rod Jackson and his partner, Frank Pulasky are sent to investigate. Joined by Lisa Nielson (looking for her fiance) and Sharu, their Sherpa guide, they are captured by a race of hairy blue-bodied giants whose leader explains they are the Aytia and have established this relay station on Earth to aid in their plan to create a vast ice plane so their race can leave their doomed solar system and conquer the Earth. Escaping from the outpost, Jackson finds out the aliens' main base is on one of Jupiter's moons, Callisto, and he and Pulasky are sent into space to battle the Aytia before human life on Earth is destroyed.

Goofs

The jet Commander Jackson flies off in at first when recalled from vacation appears to be a B-52, with dual engine pods at each of the four wing stations, for a total of eight engines. This is obvious in the view from below as the jet takes off billowing black exhaust. A short time later, the jet is shown from above as it's flying and it's a delta-wing four-engine jet, with the two inboard engine on each side of the cockpit clearly single engines and not double engine pods.

Mind numbing nonsense

**SPOILERS** Another attempt by aliens from another world trying to destroy the earth in order to take it over minus the human race left still living on it.

With Yetis attacking a IDSC weather station on the ice capped Himalayias and killing everyone in it except it's commander Let. Harris has the head of IDSC Gen Norton send his best man Commander Rod, together with his top kick Capt. Pulasky, and a team of local mountain climbers to scale the Himalayan mount. Consent Junga in order to find what exactly happened.

Sneaking on the climbing team is Harris' girlfriend Lisa Nielson disguised as a Sherpa guide trying to find out what happened to her lover Let. Harris. Attacked by a group of Yeti's and taken prisoners the climbers find out from the Yeti's leader Agron that their not really Yati's Bigfeet or Abominable Snowmen at all. In fact their from another planet Attina who have been on the planet earth for over a hundred years.

With all the electronic equipment in working order the Attina's are now going to put the squeeze on the polar ice caps and cause them to break up and flood the earth and then lower the earth's temperature to below freezing and turn the surface of the earth into a solid sheet of ice. this would create a world for the Attina's to survive and thrive in. Commander Rod & Co. escaping from the Yeti's or Attina's and later tries to destroy their base in the Himalayias where the melting of the ice caps still continue with the coast cities of earth going under the waves.

It turns out that the Attina's are using a power source in deep space to bombard the earths polar region's and it's up to Commander Rod to not only find where that source originates from but to go out with a fleet of space ships and destroy it.

Bottom of the barrel special effects with a hackneyed storyline is the order of business in "Snow Devils" that has the viewers trying to keep from dozing off as they desperately try to watch the movie. The Snowmen Yeti's or Attina's had worked so long and hard to get were they were in the film. Just when they were about to achieve what they worked for all these years all they got for their efforts is nothing but a good old hot foot for their big feet or their "Bigfoot" as their known in these parts.
