Hammer’s The Abominable Snowman on TV Thursday

The Abominable Snowman

If you’re in the US, and are into all things of a Bigfoot and Yeti nature, well this Thursday you’re in for a treat. At 11.00 AM, central time, the Fox Movie Channel will be airing what is, in my opinion, the best movie ever made on such matters.

I’m talking about the 1957 production from Hammer Film Productions, The Abominable Snowman, starring Forrest Tucker and Peter Cushing.

Hammer made some great films, but this is one of the best. And the good news is that it does not take the tired and predictable approach of so many of today’s crappy cryptozoological movie-makers. I mean, of course, having the creature slaughter – one by one – a bunch of kids in the woods.


The Abominable Snowman is very different.

Yes, it’s packed with intrigue and suspense, but (unlike so much of today’s cheaply made rubbish) it’s also filled with a great deal of thought-provoking material on the nature of the Yeti.

In fact, as we learn more about the creature, things become downright spooky. Indeed, certain scenes are unforgettable in the enigmatic stakes.

If you’ve never seen The Abominable Snowman, you’re in for a great treat. If you have, well, watch it again!

    Awesome flick, I’ll be setting my DVR! Also I loved the other Mountain creature movie Forrest Tucker was in, “The Crawling Eye” aka “The Trollenburg Terror” from 1958.
