“Abominable” is another one of those movies that disguises its paper-thin plot with its horror movie veteran cast. While a guy wanting to take revenge on the creature that wounded him is a pretty classic setup, something fun takes places here. While I barely remember seeing this one in theaters, I find that my home video revisit has produced a sense of communal pride that I rarely get from horror movies anymore. If you pick it up, watch it with a crowd and get the full creature feature appeal down pat. It’s truly amazing.

The Plot Thus Far
It has been sighted 42,000 times in 68 countries, a vicious creature of myth and legend called Sasquatch, Yeti, and perhaps most infamously, Bigfoot. It’s been hunted it for years. But what happens when it decides to hunt us? After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When his new neighbor Karen, is attacked by a gigantic creature, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police and those around him dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Matt McCoy (L.A.
