Goofs

When the group arrives at the house and everyone leaves the van, the last person to leave the van closes the sliding door and pats it as though it was closed successfully when it is clear that it did not fully close. See more »

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!

Alternate Versions

The VHS tape from Lightning Home Video is taken from a cut TV print that is missing much of the gore and the entire prologue sequence. The DVD from Retromedia Entertainment is uncut but due to rights issues the song "Popcorn" has been eliminated and replaced with a generic synthesizer tune. See more »

In college a buddy of mine came in with a tape of what he claimed was the worst movie ever committed to celluloid, or whatever they had been using in 1974. We asked him why we'd want to watch something like that, and he replied that part of it had been filmed on campus! It was a Saturday night with class out of session, so with nothing to go along with the sizable supply of beer we had in the fridge, we said why not.

All you need to know about the movie: 1) A fight with a Yeti in a snowstorm is actually the negative of the print. 2) The Yeti wears tennis shoes. 3) The mute Indian looks more Italian than Al Pacino. 4) The Yeti runs down a long warehouse aisle to a loading dock to attack one of the students in the middle of the woods, then cuts to the actual attack, where he falls like he'd been pushed over.

This movie cried out for the MST3K treatment, but alas, it was not to be.
