There was a 1977 TV movie called Snowbeast about a killer Yeti terrorizing a Colorado ski resort. You barely saw the monster at all. Now there’s a new killer Yeti movie called Snow Beast, starring John Schneider and Jason London, and you’ll see 100 times more monster in this trailer than in all of that Seventies flick.
People disappear every year out in the snow–but this year, something is adding to the body count. Jim (John Schneider) and his research team study the Canadian lynx every year. This year he has to take his rebelling 16-year-old daughter, Emmy, with him. But the lynx are missing. As Jim and his team try to find why, something stalks them–a predator no prey can escape.
Directed by Brian Brough (Christmas Angel) from a script by Brittany Wiscombe (Christmas Angel), my natural assumption would be that Snow Beast is destined for Syfy, but given that the monster is brought to life via old fashioned suitmation rather than all-CGI, I’m not sure Syfy allows monster movies that don’t feature 100% computer generated creatures. The Yeti suit might prove too cheesy to those that have grown too accustomed to digital effects. I very much adore it. Man in suit, baby!
SunWorld Pictures is handling the distribution for this Silver Peak Productions film and has provided us with a trailer for Snow Beast, due later this year, presumably. Any movie where John Schneider gets bitch-slapped by an Abominable Snowman is fine by me.
