The Slow Creature...
Bindy Sue FrÝnkŁnschtein | under the rubble | 03/28/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"To call this movie "boring" would be like calling Sadam Hussein "cranky". Words pale in the face of such horror! THE SNOW CREATURE is a sub-zero budget "monster" movie with a tall guy in fuzzy clothes standing in for the monster. He's supposed to be a yeti / bigfoot / abominable snowman, but is more like a wookie / teddy-man in need of a good long bath. Yes, he kills someone (in a boring way), which leads a group into the mountains to track him down. We get to see the creature dance back and forth, in and out of the shadows, over and over, until our heads want to spin off! Wilder used the same shot of the beast coming at us some 13-14 times! Somehow, the creature ends up back in LA (I fell asleep during it's transport), escapes, and roams around aimlessly. My advice? Stay away! For God's sake, stay away..."
Another good bad movie

"Remember the movies, "Marty" "Cavalcade" or "Country Girl?" They all won Academy Awards in various main categories. Big forgotten movies. You will probably remember Snow Creature after you see it. It is cheap and the monster looks like a big man in a tailored fur suit. The monster's victims are children in little suits that are supposed to look like adults in the creature's grasp.
But there is something about this movie that is attractive. It is fun. It is not a laugh out loud type of fun but 72 minutes pass quickly with a good (simple) story. Somebody tried their hand at good camera work and it sort of pays off. I would have to list it as one of my favorites of the 1950's "B" movies. Remember B stands for Budget, not "Bad." I gave it 5 stars for entertainment value.
If you like, "The Indestructible Man," "She Demons," or "From Hell It Came" you will probably find the same type of goofy entertainment in Snow Creature.
So plug this tape in on a Friday night or a Saturday morning, put your brain on the shelf and enjoy a fun, simple, clean "B" movie.

See men with hats drink coffee and smoke cigarettes!

"There's something oddly comical about the "snow beast", upon its capture, being placed in something resembling a refrigerated
phone booth, and in observing his impatient, standing silouette behind the fogged-up door window, he appears as bored as the rest of us, as the main characters gab on and on and on...Thankfully, he breaks loose (of course), but unfortunately, this doesn't contribute any momentum to the story. Rather, we're treated to more scenes of men with hats hanging out at the police station drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, pointing at maps, answering phone calls, smoking more cigarettes, drinking coffee, pointing at more maps...and to the same shot of the snow beast emerging to and fro the shadows, the same shot played over and over again, forwards and in reverse. Talk about a budget flick -this film makes "The Curse of Bigfoot" look and feel like a epic masterpiece by comparison. But what the heck - it was a budget dvd, and it's good for a couple of laughs and campy moments.
The print used for the dvd is in rather poor condition, but I doubt even an immaculate print would lend much toward any improvement to the story."
