Well, that was the quote on my video box by someone from THE POST. So,
judging by that rather anonymous endorsement, I knew I was in for a real
treat. Not to mention the box artwork, which features a large, vaguely
ape-like creature tossing a motorcycle (yay! a hybrid biker/monster flick!)
Toss in John Carradine, and the blurb "America's abominable snowman...
breeds with anything!", and you've got yourself an epoch du frommage. The
uncomfortably long (and silent) travelling scenes, the paper mache sets, the
unbelievably bad bigfoot makeup(or shall I say BigFEET?), the
dinner-theatre-style acting, wonderfully inane script - all a testiment to
the ultra-low budget that this "classic" drive-in flick flaunts in spades.
Demands repeated viewings.
Notable for it gratuitous use of flashbacks, even by 70's standards. This is
a pure drive-in flick, the one your parents didn't want to stay awake for,
so they drove home halfway through it. Right off the bat, you're introduced
to bad stock footage, interesting color changes during scenes, and a
so-called SATAN BEAR! Cheezy and vaguely energetic enough to be funny for
awhile, halfway through it begins to lull the mind into a satisfying sleep.
However, impressionable young minds might actually be frightened by this
flick, since getting mauled by a rogue bear during a boy-scout outing is
actually quite a plausable fear; as opposed to, say, getting mauled by
But that's a different movie.
