This review is from: The Abominable Snowman [DVD]  (DVD)
A group of explorers go into the Himalayas in an attempt to find and prove the existence of the legendary Yeti.
This is Hammer at its finest, a tense psychological thriller which grips you from beginning to end. This is no 'monster stomping about' film, but is instead intelligent and intriguing. Cushing and Tucker are excellent as a sympathetic morally-indignant botanist and a money-minded showman respectively. From the haunting Buddhist monastery to the icy wilderness, the sets are superb, and the shots of real ice-covered mountains add to the realism. This film really does have real tension and some unforgettable scenes.
