An amateur misconjecture devoid of anything recognizable as production values, WINTERBEAST is sure to win the hearts of all bad movie masochists fortunate enough to track it down.
The fugacious story involves a woodsy resort town cursed by ancient Native American demons which manifest as wobbly totem poles, a giant chicken, and a goofy rubber spinal cord thingie with a big, grimacing head. The resident lawmen launch a bumbling investigation of several recent disappearances in the area, and gradually become aware of the mounting danger. In predictable B-horror fashion, they motion to alert and evacuate the area despite the resistance of greedy local business owners who fear a loss of tourism revenue.
WINTERBEAST boasts stop-motion special effects which appear to have been edited from some tragic Third-World GUMBY knockoff, and the acting/direction/lighting/sound/editing are catastrophically all-thumbs. Simply pulverizing in its diversiform inelegance, and supremely comical as a result, this is a lovable item of unsung schlock majesty, and unquestionably a cult-film in wait.
