This is not a remake of the 1957 film of the same name as one reviewer suggested. In fact, it has nothing whatsoever in common with the latter. This is about a dangerous bigfoot creature, not witchcraft.

Of all the 'campers in peril' nasties of the era, this has to be the most original.

The story is told in flashback by the only surviving member of an anthropologist team, who's face was burnt off by the beast, curtesy of a cooker hob.

Then I thought: mmmmmmmmm It is Tangerine Dream after all, and they can do anything musically - especially when they were always ahead of their time. This is a band not too unlike Hawkwind, who also must spend most of their life in recording studios or on the road judging by their huge album output. This is the only Dream album that I own (I have about 20 of their official albums) that has lyrics, and the words and voice of Steve Jolliffe mesmerize you until your soul splits in two with appreciation. Ironically though, the most outstanding feature of this spectacular… Read more
