Storyline

On a hot summer afternoon in the sleepy town of Blackwater, Louisiana locals exiting a retro-fitted theater excitedly watch as a meteor streaks across the sky and crashes through the roof of the local Natural History Museum. No one realizes that the meteor is actually a spaceship containing a shape-shifting life form. In order to adapt to Earth's atmosphere, the life form latches on to the first organism it comes in contact with - a partially frozen Woolly Mammoth found in the historic exhibit for which the town is famous. As a series of uncanny disasters unfold, the town quickly finds itself overrun by the alien-possessed mammoth. Local authorities and Government Investigators join forces with Frank Abernathy, the Museum Curator, and his father Simon, a B-Movie enthusiast to bring down the mighty mammoth, thus saving the town (and the world) in a wild adventure that blends the 50s alien-invasion flick, and the 70s revenge-of-nature opus into a marauding monster mash!

Mammoth filled me with mirth!
4 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny film and a great take-off of horror from the 50's and 60's. The plot twists and turns paying homage along the way to many films that the committed buff will recognise. Although kitch in nature is is actually very sophisticated. Hats off to Tim Cox!

A welcome departure from the usual staple of monster/gore that we are used to from this channel. In fact, Mammoth is more like a feature movie and I would love to see it on the big screen.

A top cast really lifts this film. Summer Glau, I could watch all day long and Tom Skerritt just brings pure class.

Oh and BTW, the mammoth is terrific...
