Did any of you believe for one second that the Bigfoot movie craze was coming to a halt? Really?
Well I've got great news. There is yet another Yeti movie ready to come charging out of the woods entitled "Snow Beast" which is slated to debut on the SyFy Channel in the near future.
The film stars John Schneider (Them Dukes, them Dukes .... okay Dukes of Hazzard), Danielle Chuchran, Paul D. Hunt, Kari Hawker and Jason London who literally running for their lives from a really pissed off Wampa (watch the trailer .... the monster is the Wampa from Empire Strikes Back) who is on one hell of a blood-thirsty bender.
When I say pissed off ..... I mean PISSED OFF. This Wookie (okay another Star Wars reference ... I'm on a role) is pulling snow bunnies out of cars and throwing guys against trees. Kinda makes the Fouke Monster from "Boggy Creek" look like a pansy.
According to the folks over at SunWorld Pictures what they were aiming for in "Snow Beast" was something a little more retro. According to Marie Wilcox, "Snow Beast is reminiscent of the old-school 'creature features.' Very little CGI effects are contained in the film. Cast members performed their own stunts making for a good time on set as we threw people through the air, dragged them through snow, launched them off snow mobiles, and dropped them into snow caves."
And who doesn't want to see John Schneider get launched right?
I'm at least glad to here that the production went away from CGI. By now you know how I think that medium is being abused ..... I'm looking at you George Lucas ....
Do I think that the Bigfoot movie craze will ever end? Well, if you asked me a year ago I would have said yes, but now .... no way. As long as there are giant unknown apes running around in our woodland areas there will be movie makers willing to make horror movies about them attacking Indians, teenage girls, witches, and TV stars from the 70s.
"Snow Beast" will air on the SyFy Channel this year with a DVD, digital download, and video on demand release coming afterword.
