Both Aaron Douglas and Torrence Coombs stared in Killer Mountain together (in 2011) and also were in an episode (4.17) of Battlestar Galactica (in 2009) as well. See more »


The operating base for the expedition is on a boat. But the boat is a river ferry, not a sea-going vessel. And Bhutan has four major river systems: the Drangme Chhu; the Puna Tsang Chhu, also called the Sankosh; the Wang Chhu; and the Amo Chhu. However, the vessel is not only a significantly larger ship than the modest sized ferry boats used on the rivers of Bhutan, but it is unlikely that any of the waterways in Bhutan could accommodate the vessel shown. The fittings visible on the ship make it clear that it is equipped for deep water operations (oceans or very large lakes). See more »

Somewhat forgettable but a cut above the usual SyFy schlock...
20 March 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

To be honest, I was expecting Killer Mountain to be much worse than it was. It was far from a great movie, and was forgettable at the end of the day, compared to the cheaply made terribly acted and scripted wastes of time that are usually associated with SyFy originals it was tolerable. It is much less cheap than I thought it would be visually, the scenery and photography do look dark and cold, and actually attempts to evoke some sort of atmosphere, and the CGI effects while not mind-blowing actually look as though effort was made into constructing them. The acting is likewise not extraordinary but is decent, particularly the female lead, and while I think more could have been done with a clearer definition of what it was and how it came to be, the monster was more than okay in design and did exude some menace. But sadly here come the problems. While Killer Mountain is not a terrible movie, there is never really anything thrilling about it either. The story too often is sloppy and predictable, with some exposition bits that could have been shortened or cut easily, with no real sense of suspense or dread with the killings. The script is nothing memorable and feels rather bland and aimless at times, and the characters are no different from the usual stereotypical and uninteresting characters you find more often than not with SyFy's resume. All in all, forgettable but watchable enough. 4/10 Bethany Cox
