Trivia

Goofs

Dr. Prell and Karl talk about how the code of the Voltaire demands no body bruises and how a victim must be scared to death. Later, at the big breakfast, they go around toasting past party hosts, bringing up highlights which include an avalanche and auto crashes. Wouldn't those two scenarios inflict body bruises?

Quotes

Tom Nash: [singing] People say that he's downright nasty, he's mean and he's gruesome. He'll make your threesome into a twosome. Now is your chance to make a break, don't let a moment go to waste. On the prowl, hear him howl, here comes the Yeti now!

This is the movie that made me afraid of the woods
25 June 2004 | by wolfdaddy74701See all my reviews

I saw this movie originally in the theaters when I must have been about 6-7. A babysitter took me, and it quite literally made me afraid to walk in the woods alone for many years. I ran across it again when I was about 20 and couldn't believe it had scared me so. The costumed "monster" looked like he had been adorned with bathroom throw rugs to resemble not so much a yeti but more like an overgrown Pekingese. The out-of-focus close-ups on the beasts slavering mouth as he bit at his victims only served to accentuate his lapdogness. Still, the movie made for good fun as my friends and I took great pleasure in predicting which of the students would fall next or how bad the next cannibal joke would be. For an amusing if not forgettable night, pick this up wherever fine foods are served.
