Trivia

Sheriff Halderman (Paul Gleason) is seen taking a sip from a mug with the quote "Don't mess with the bull". Paul Gleason's famous character of Principal Richard Vernon from The Breakfast Club (1985) (and reprised in Not Another Teen Movie (2001)) has a line "Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns" as he's reprimanding John Bender (Judd Nelson). See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, after the couple find the dead horse, their dog runs into the woods and is also killed. The couple go back into the house to hide and the abominable snowman comes onto their porch. When it leaves, they go out and see his footprints in the snow that they just ran through. But their footprints aren't seen. See more »

Ziegler Dane: The Darwin Awards. They give 'em out to people who died doin' the stupidest shit.

Clerk: Crazy glue?

Lo and behold, a good Sci Fi Channel premiere
21 May 2006 | by (LA, CA) – See all my reviews

The movies that the Sci Fi Channel premieres on Saturday nights are a decidedly mixed bag -- "mixed" meaning "bad, but watchable enough because it's free on TV". That said, Abominable is probably the best one yet and one of the few that I wouldn't have minded paying for as a rental or even in a theater (well, matinée price). Basically, it's a monster movie spliced with Rear Window, with an "abominable" man-beast as the menacing killer -- a simple story wonderfully executed with quick pacing, a strong cast of character actors, and gloriously gruesome effects. You'll appreciate it all the more next week when Boa vs. Python vs. Komodo vs. Gerbil comes on.
