People disappear every year out in the Canadian wilderness - however, this year is different. This year something is increasing the body count. Jim ('John Schneider') and his research team trek into the Canadian wilderness to study the Canadian Lynx every year. However, this year is different. The Lynx are missing. In fact most of the wildlife is missing; Jim and his team, including his rebellious daughter Emmy (Danielle Chuchran), seek to find out why. As they conduct their study, something is stalking them. Something not human. Something that no prey can escape...including human prey! While the research team is trying to find out why the lynx have disappeared, the local ranger ('Jason London') is searching for the answer to what is making tourist disappear; even if it the last thing he ever does... and it is.

Something is lurking in the Canadian mountains...
13 September 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Given the overall rating that "Snow Beast" had received here on IMDb, it was with some hesitation that I decided to watch this movie. And the sole purpose of purchasing it was simply because after having seen Danielle Chuchran in "SAGA: Curse of the Shadow" then I wanted to watch some of her previous work.

Well, with "Snow Beast", then you know exactly what you are in for. And true enough, the movie delivers exactly that, and does so without even a single surprise along the way. But despite its predictability, then "Snow Beast" was still an enjoyable movie to watch. It is one of those cheesy and campy pseudo-horror movies that we all indulge in once in a while and most of us don't admit to.

The story is about a group of scientists who trek deep into the Canadian mountains to study lynxes in the wild. However, when they arrive there, the lynxes are gone, and the scientists come face to face with a ferocious man-like beast, reminiscent of the mythical Yeti.

Campy, cheesy and dim-witted, yes, the movie delivers on every account. But still, it managed to captivate me and hold me all the way to the very end.

There were some mistakes here and there, sure. Such as the feet of the snow beast were painstakingly molded latex in the shape of feet fitted upon shoes. The toes were not even parted or moving separately. And the avalanche scene, well that has to be seen to be believe. It was just bad. And something puzzled me beyond mortal comprehension; why would a scientist venture out into the frozen mountains alone, knowing very well that a deadly creature was lurking out there, and arming herself with a camera and a tranquilizer gun - which was conveniently left behind in the car. It was stupidity on a level where even the most of stupid people would go "wait, what did she just do?"

The characters in the movie were detailed and nicely portrayed, and the people hired for the various roles were doing good jobs in acting.

If you enjoy campy horror, then "Snow Beast" is most definitely worth a watch.
