New Yeti Horror Flick

Posted by: Loren Coleman on September 24th, 2009


Sam Raimi (Drag Me To Hell, Warcraft, a future Spider-Man) appears all set to produce Yetis in the forthcoming new horror movie Refuge, to be directed by Corin Hardy from screenwriter Tom De Ville. The original pitch was from Hardy.


Hollywood Reporter states that the plot, “centers on a remote town terrorized by a Yeti, the mythological creature native to the mountains of the Himalayas.” (Let’s hope they discover the Yeti is a “legendary” creature and not a “mythological” one before this process is finished.)


Raimi shares producing with Jason Blum, Nathan Kahane and Steven Schneider. According to reports, it seems Blum’s Blumhouse Productions is creating a short of Refuge, to use as a late-stage proof-of-concept piece, something Hardy can use to “refine his vision even as the script is being developed.” The short, like the feature, will come together under the supervision of Hardy and De Ville.


Let’s just hope that the new movie shows the Yetis as they truly are reported by the eyewitnesses, that is reddish brown to black, and not as seen in popular culture, all white.

Come see the International Cryptozoology Museum’s forthcoming “Yetis Are NOT White” exhibit (similar, in some ways, to Henry Stokes’ private collection, pictured below).

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Usually I am not too wild about Yeti horror flicks. But I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather have this project be than in Raimi’s capable hands. If this premise is going to work at all, he’ll be the one to find a way, I’m sure.

    I’d like the creatures to be the color as they are really reported too. The sad thing is, people would see the movie and complain because it is “not what a real Yeti looks like!” Groan.

  2. Radical Dreamer responds:

    I was unaware that Ikkakumon from Digimon would have any connection to the Yeti, but I see him in the toy case anyhow.

  3. Buckeye1 responds:

    Will Loren be a technical advisor on the film? 😉

  4. Ceroill responds:

    I agree with MM, with Sam Raimi on this project I have some hope for it to be fun at least.

  5. jtmkryptos responds:

    i’m so going to see this one in theaters with friends with pop corn with pleasure.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
