Here’s a movie that used to appear all the time on television, back in my fabled youth, that now has seemed to have vanish into the ether. Not that having vanished is necessarily a bad thing, mind you. It’s just that I’ve been a-looking and now that I’ve found it, I’m gonna watch it.

(Well, as this is a reboot review, I’ve already watched it.  But you know what I mean.)

As the name implies, this movie is about the fabled Bigfoot, cousin to the yeti. The last time we dabbled with his kind left a mark, of sorts. That was The Snow Creature, first of the Yeti/Bigfoot pictures. Such fond memories it inspires. At least in the writing of the review, if in no way the movie itself.

Shall this one bring similar “pleasant” memories? As we are on a streak of writing these openings before I actually watch the film, you already know the answer to that. But perhaps the journey to that destination will amuse. It is always my hope.

Before moving to the next page, though, it would be remiss of me not to mention that this will be John Carradine‘s first “appearance” here at Welltun Cares Reviews. As Mr. Carradine was the hardest working man in Genre films (kinda sorta) we will no doubt see more of him in future.

That said, head off to the next page for an extensive look at a film that frankly doesn’t rate it.  Par for the course around here, when you think about it…
