Jim (John Schneider) and his research team study the Canadian Lynx every year. This year, he has to take his rebellious sixteen-year-old daughter, Emmy (Danielle Chuchran), with him. But the lynx are missing. As Jim and his team — with the help of a local ranger (Jason London) — try to find out why something stalks them — a predator no prey can escape…
“This movie is great because it’s exactly what you expect when you see the title Snow Beast. There are no surprises, just an exquisitely cheesy representation of an equally cheesy Bigfoot / Abominable Snowman myth.” Horror News
“The entire production has the sensibilities of a more innocent bygone era of filmmaking as this could very well be the tamest of all of the killer Bigfoot movies to come along in the past decade. Ostensibly a family film that happens to revolve around a hungry homicidal hominid hunting humans, if it weren’t for those minimal moments of bloodshed, Snow Beast would be bordering on G-rated.” Dread Central
” … the monster was depicted via a guy in a suit, with CGI kept to a shocking minimum (his red eye I think was the only glaring effect). Sure, the script’s lack of action kept it from being used much, but at least those rare kill scenes looked good. And… uh… actually that’s it. The movie was watchable, I guess, but it was just so lackluster and slow-paced…” Horror Movie a Day
