This film is great!
22 March 2004 | by (Jeannette, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I can remember this movie coming to my local movie house as a child and I begged and begged my dad to take me but he refused knowing I would be scared senseless and I was.

I recently watched this movie again as an adult, and while not quite as scary, it was still charming and informative. The information presented is just as valid today as it was when the movie was made.

Especially entertaining is an ultra-serious Peter Graves who tries to convince the viewer that every bit of info presented is uncontestable proof that Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness Monster actually exist.

The re-enactments are fairly realistic and are not nearly as corny (or scary for that matter) as expected. The film is fast-paced and easy to understand.

While this isn't one of the all time great films ever made, "The Mysterious Monsters" is plenty entertaining, especially for true Sasquatch buffs. It is definitely worth a few hours of your time!
