‘Some things are better left unfound’
Abominable is a 2006 American horror feature film, directed and written by Ryan Schifrin.
The movie stars Matt McCoy, Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator; Castle Freak; Would You Rather), Lance Henriksen (Pumpkinhead; Stung), Rex Linn, Dee Wallace (Cujo), Phil Morris, Paul Gleason and Haley Joel. The music was scored by Lalo Schifrin (The Amityville Horror), father of director Ryan.
It has been sighted 42,000 times in sixty-eight countries. A creature of myth and legend known by several names; Yeti, Sasquatch and the infamous Bigfoot! We’ve hunted it for years, but what happens when it decides to hunt us? “Abominable” centers on a man recovering from a mountain climbing accident, trapped in a remote cabin in the woods, who sees the legendary beast, and must convince someone to believe him, before the monster goes on a bloody rampage…
Despite the title, the antagonist of the film is the cryptid Bigfoot. The film premiered on the Syfy channel.
“An enjoyable stew of several classic B-movie themes, Abominable makes the old new again, crafting a story that supports its solid scares and brooding atmosphere with honest-to-god characters. The very real, very believable conflicts, histories, and wonderfully captured personalities of the characters in this modern folk tale lend belief and further complexity to the supernatural/monstrous element.” Sex Gore Mutants
“Abominable doesn’t rise above its genre. Oddly enough, it may be the lack of pretension that is the film’s greatest asset. For fans of 70s drive-in flicks (or the modern-day equivalent, “direct to DVD or Sci-Fi Channel”) with properly-set expectations, this has all the ingredients you’d want, and more.” Twitch
“Abominable is the greatest Bigfoot film ever and, although it’s a weak field of competition, it still sits firmly on the top of the pedestal. In fact it’s still way better than 90% of the other horror output I’ve seen recently. It pushes all of the right buttons for a low budget effort – solid writing, great direction, atmospheric, gory and above all entertaining.” Popcorn Pictures
