Quotes

Karl: We practically pulled every trick out of the bag. Maybe we should just kill her and be done with her.
Dr. Ernst Prell: No Karl, no. The code of the vulterie demands no body bruises. No, she must be frightened to death.
Karl: I have an idea...
Keith Henshaw: [pointing shoutgun at Prell and Karl from a nearby doorway] I don't think so, put your hands up.
Dr. Ernst Prell: Really, Keith. I thought you were asleep.
Keith Henshaw: I mean what I said, put your hands up!
Dr. Ernst Prell: Well be reasonable.
Keith Henshaw: PUT 'EM UP!

A yeti in Westchester county, NY???
15 April 2002 | by ZEE-11See all my reviews

If you can get past the premise of a killer yeti dwelling in some guy's back yard, this isn't THAT bad of a movie. I think it was well intentioned, but misses it's mark with amusing results. In fact, it has become one of my favorite time wasters. Indeed it has all the markings of a good bad movie, including incredible dialogue, cheesy makeup (the yeti looks like a fluffy half man ape wearing fuzzy cowboy chaps and I believe if you stop frame the scenes, he is wearing white tennis shoes!). All this combined with the most gullible group of college students in film (all right, one of the most gullible). The closing "breakfast" scene offers some genuine creeps. Watch for scenes changing from day to night and sunny to rainy and then back again! Cult material deluxe. Watch this with your favorite beverage and ENJOY!
