The Snow Creature (1954)

If Ed Wood had set out to make a picture about the Yeti, it would look something like this.  Director W. Lee Wilder, who made a number of B-movies in the 50's and 60's, does his best to give us us his worst.  The Yeti in this film looks like a 6 ½ foot human in furry pajamas.  The costume is absolutely horrible.  Furthermore, the plot has been done a million times over and you can anticipate every scene almost shot for shot.
To make matter worse, much of the front end of the film feels flat and wooden, like a really boring documentary that you saw in Elementary School back when they had film projectors.  With so many wonderful creature features out there, why waste your time watching this kind of drivel?  Avoid this one even if it's the last video on the shelf.  Go outside and play with your dog.  Clean the house.  Do anything except watch this movie!
For more info check out the film's entry in IMDB.
