This one was pretty good it sort of reminded me of "Ice-man" . It's worth a look see.

"This tongue-in-cheek film is a gem. Filled with jokes poking fun at other sci-fi staples, characters, and themes, it also packs some surprise plot twists and moments. The actors were top notch and fun to watch. At points where it looks like the movie is going to drag, something always pops up to surprise and delight. If you want a serious horror film or don't like comedy mixed with your thrills, this isn't the movie for you. But if you enjoy a rollercoaster ride of great chills, unexpected moments, quirks, and laughs, this is a wonderful choice."
One of the best low-budget films ever made....

"I first saw this on the Sci-Fi Channel. I was bored on a rainy Saturday, and couldn't find anything that looked more interesting. I was expecting the typical monster-comes-to-life-and-eats-the-world kind of thing, but I was very pleasantly surprised. This is head & shoulders above the usual B-monster movies. And it has a surprising amount of subtle comedy, as well.
I won't give away any details, but it's well worth buying at a used price. Try it. You won't be disappointed."

"Usually Sci Fi channel movies are heavy with the cheese, sparse with the plot, and graphics that make someone born after '80 cringe. And yes Mammoth give us a completely ridiculous plot; a mammoth that had been possessed by an alien right before it was flash-freezed defrosts in modern day and wrecks havoc. But the acting is amazing, the cheese is sweet and you'll love the characters, especially Vincent Ventresca's Dr. Frank, like they're your social awkward best friend.
I'm keeping back only one star because the DVD lacks any kind of special features, in spite of it's UNRATED proclamation, and it doesn't have any subtitles. I love subtitles so this is more a personal choice than an overall criticism. But when you think about it, in this inclusive genre and era not having subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing Sci-Fi lovers is just lazy."
