 This movie is a pretty boring example of a 50's monster flick. Probably the main reason for that is that it was made by Hammer films which did OK with their updating of DRACULA and FRANKENSTEIN around this same time but this one doesn't update anything and feels way older than those other monster mashes. Peter Cushing plays the good-guy scientist role and Forrest Tucker(who would go on to star in F-TROOP) plays the scummy showman who's just out to profit on capturing the Snowman/monster. They both do a really good job and are way above the average cheesy performances that usually showed up in creature features from America made in this era. Unfortunately this one always felt like a cheat to me since you barely get to see the monster(or monsters since there turns out to be more than one) and when you finally do it's pretty underwhelming. They just kinda look like big hairy old men.  Probably only worth checking out if you're a big Hammer fan and want to see one of their earlier horrors.

You probably don't need to be all that stout of heart to view this:
