Storyline

Amidst a general melting of the ice caps, a weather station in the Himalayas is destroyed and Gamma I commander Rod Jackson and his partner, Frank Pulasky are sent to investigate. Joined by Lisa Nielson (looking for her fiance) and Sharu, their Sherpa guide, they are captured by a race of hairy blue-bodied giants whose leader explains they are the Aytia and have established this relay station on Earth to aid in their plan to create a vast ice plane so their race can leave their doomed solar system and conquer the Earth. Escaping from the outpost, Jackson finds out the aliens' main base is on one of Jupiter's moons, Callisto, and he and Pulasky are sent into space to battle the Aytia before human life on Earth is destroyed.

Goofs

The first aircraft shown is a six-engine B-47, not an eight-engine B-52. Interior shots show two men (presumably pilots) seated side-by-side; the B-47 had tandem front-and-back seating. The aircraft then does indeed transform into a delta-wing four-engine B-58. See more »

Baby, It's Cold Outside

The legend of the Himalayas abominable snowman gets some verification in this Italian made science fiction film Snow Devils. Earth's climate is changing and there have been more sightings of the shy and legendary creatures than usual. Some other scientific phenomena have recorded from the 'Roof of the World' than normal.

What to do but find out as earth's expedition goes to the world's highest mountains and finds some rather large hairy aliens who are directing some climate control equipment that are making the polar ice caps melt causing record flooding. When there's enough water out there, why we freeze things again making the climate just right for us snow dwellers from another solar system.

After dealing with the Himalayan advance expedition, the same group of intrepid astronauts go into space to deal with the alien base which is located on Callisto one of Jupiter's moons. You got to see how they do it as the futuristic world is saved.

I'm sure right now among climate change deniers there's a plan to market Snow Devils to a new generation as this says that any phenomena that scientists have recorded in this film is the real reason for climate change. This film is going over big in the EPA of the Trump Administration.

I've sometimes wondered, but never for very long whether if one is fluent in Italian whether these films might make more sense in the original language. I kind of doubt it though.

The subject has been better dealt with in much better films.
