Botanist Frank Parrish leads an expedition to the Himalayas to seek out new flora, accompanied by hardboiled news photographer Peter Wells. When their lead guide, Subra, learns his wife has been kidnapped by a Yeti, Parrish disbelieves him, so the sherpas commandeer the expedition at gunpoint and turn it into a search-and-rescue party. To Parrish's surprise, they discover a whole family of Yetis in a cave, and are able to subdue the male and carry it back to civilization, to ship to the USA for study. Subra is forgiven his acts because he was right after all. Wells, meanwhile, phones in the story and Parrish finds his discovery - shipped upright in a meat cooler to maintain its natural environment - detained in the US because Wells' story refers to it as a snowMAN, and a decision must be made whether this is a customs or immigration matter.

The Snow Creature, half man, half monster. The snow creature monster's costume is a bad attempt to make him look scary and half monster. All it really does is make it look like a man going out trick or treating on Halloween. I think most of the acting was ok. It had a couple of small twists that were unexpected and I think that the second half of the movie outdid the beginning. I rated this movie a 5 but it barely made that 5. If I could, I would have called it a 4+. I bought this dvd expecting it to be a bad movie and was surprised to find that it was actually better than expected. I thought it was going to be worse. While looking back at the whole movie, I must say that I liked it.
