Scooby Doo would be proud.
29 November 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A group of Mountaineers are tormented by a fabled creature, The Abominable snowman!

It really is as ludicrous a plot as it sounds. If ever you wanted to watch a real time epsiode of Scooby Doo this is it. Colonel March plays the role of Freddy, watch it, and see what you think, the parallel is exact, even down to the unveiling.

Lots of absurd moments, but part of me did enjoy the scene at the film screening where the 'creature' first appears, that was rather fun.

It's always wonderful to see Olaf Pooley on screen, but bless him, he's not given the best of parts here is he!

Daft, but a wee bit of fun! 5/10.
