Quotes

Angus Mac Gregor: Dead ten times over. Jim, I never saw done to any creature what was done to him. Never.
Marshal Jim Crown: Doc, what do you think killed him - man or beast?
Dr. Kihlgren: Neither. I've seen men who died in a hundred different ways. Gunshot, stabbin', clawed by a grizzly, strangled, stomped by a horse, gored - you name it, I've been there to pick up the pieces. But this is somethin'... somethin' else.

Houston family values
2 April 2020 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The large extended Houston family has picked out a piece of land to settle on, but there are two problems. First the government hasn't opened the land for settlement. And secondly there is a rumor of a savage large creature that is terrorizing the area.

Leslie Nielsen and Lola Albright head the Houston clan and the clan is a rambunctious but charming crew. Even Stuart Whitman isn't immune to them. But he has a job to enforce the law.

Whitman also has to find out the source of the savage killings that look like an animal could have done it. The solution won't be that surprising though.

Good performances from Nielsen, Albright, Royal Dano, and Simon Oakland and an exciting climax where Whitman confronts the beast.'
