Cryptozoology

The cryptozoological horror film has been a sub-genre staple for decades. Below are some that I see often (unlike “actual” cryptids) — films that most certainly qualify as guilty pleasures. From stop-motion effects to rubber masks, there’s something here for everyone!

Creature From Black Lake (1976)

John David Carson (Empire of the Ants) and Dennis Fimple (“Petticoat Junction”) play two students tracking in the Louisiana backwoods in search of a mysterious, legendary creature. Ignoring warnings by the local sheriff, they team up with Dub Taylor and his grandson, whose parents were killed in an auto wreck after witnessing the beast. Suddenly one of the students disappears, and a deadly confrontation ensues…

Snowbeast (TV Movie 1977)

A killer beast on the rampage terrorizes a ski resort during a winter carnival. Based on the Bigfoot creature that was seen for over 100 years in Colorado and the Pacific Northwest. How can you stop this monstrous, Yeti-like beast? First get Bo Svenson (Walking Tall Part II) and turn him loose against the scary, hairy Snowbeast… before it’s too late! Yvette Mimieux, Robert Logan, and Clint Walker co-star in this made-for-TV creature feature. Joseph Stefano (Psycho, “The Outer Limits”) wrote the script, taking much of the information from real-life expert Roger Patterson, who had an encounter with a Bigfoot in 1967.

The Loch Ness Horror (1981)

An increasing number of people are dying mysterious deaths in the dark waters of Loch Ness, victims of the famous monster. But what other mysteries does the Loch hold? What about the monster’s egg and the insane scientist who’ll do anything to exploit it? What secrets does the sunken Nazi plane near the monster’s lair hold, and why will the military do anything to cover it up?

Demonwarp (1988)

A man and his daughter are attacked in the woods by what they believe is a Bigfoot-type creature. However, they soon begin to suspect that they may have stumbled onto a nest of aliens in a hidden spacecraft.

Frostbiter, aka Wendigo (1995)

A duo of gun-happy redneck hunters stupidly break a sacred circle in a hunting spree, which releases the deadly wendigo. The wendigo kills many of the hunters gruesomely, leaving the chosen woman and a gun-toting idiot to destroy the deadly beast.
