The most amazing event film you will ever see...
29 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't believe the naysayers when you read about this movie. This film truly exemplifies the independent film spirit. Winterbeast is a film that clearly did not have much of a budget to begin with, nor any real talent behind or in front of the camera. Regardless of any of that, the filmmakers have managed to produce a film that was most likely dated before it was even in the can, with amazing, Gumby-like effects (were Gumby a horny totem pole, that is), a flaming Jewish stereotype of a villain (the incomparable Bob Harlow) and no real plot to speak of. I have probably seen this movie way more times than any human being should have, and it is truly a mantle I wear proudly. Watch it alone, watch it with your friends, watch it drunk or sober, just watch it. You owe it to yourself.
