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 rampage…

“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

  1. This movie has a lot of subplot characters that add little or nothing to the main plot.
    Beyond that, the Bigfoot monsters don’t look like apes, they look like big goofy distortions of men!
    Worth watching if you want to see Scream Queen Tiffany Shepis naked:-)
