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 »

Ziegler Dane: I guess you never heard of the Darwin Awards.
Clerk: The what?
Ziegler Dane: The Darwin Awards. They give 'em out to people who died doin' the stupidest shit.
Clerk: Like what?
Ziegler Dane: One of my favorites is this guy - this guy goes to a petting zoo with some of his friends and he decides to demonstrate the effect of this crazy glue.
Clerk: Crazy glue?

Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window... with BIGFOOT.
21 September 2006 | by (Oshawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a screening at the 2006 Rue Morgue Festival of Fear.

Abominable is great. I believe I've seen a few horror movies about the yeti, but this is the first decent Bigfoot/sasquatch horror movie I've ever seen. It's surprising that this is the first I know of considering that Bigfoot is such a big cryptozoological icon in north America.

Abominable has some decent actors for a relatively low budget B movie. The main characters for the most part are very well acted. There are hilarious cameos by B movie stars Jeffrey Combs and Lance Henrickson.

The feel of confinement is conveyed well. The cinematography really helps you identify with the wheelchair bound main character and his limited perspective. There are a few "jump scares" that will get you. The creature effects are great, and the monster reveal doesn't happen too early.

The movie is fun, and has a classic ending that really satisfies... something which I find is a rarity these days.
