The dude from Dukes of Hazzard fighting a Yeti in SNOWBEAST

Oh, so Jason London DID do something after Out Cold.

I should not be this excited for this movie. The trailer isn't anything we haven't already seen out of the bazillion other sasquatch movies out there. At least Night Claws has Reb Brown. But this movie has one of the Duke boys. And Jason London.

You know it can't be good. (P.S. That's a good thing.)

Jim (John Schneider, “Dukes of Hazzard”) and his research team study the Canadian lynx every year. This year he has to take his rebelling 16-year-old daughter, Emmy (Danielle Chuchran, You’re So Cupid!), with him. But the lynx are missing. As Jim and his team--with the help of a local ranger (Jason London, Dazed and Confused)--try to find out why, something stalks them: a predator no prey can escape.
Fuck me. I can already tell that "rebelling 16-year-old" is gonna be pissing me off. Always with the annoying teenagers. And they don't die. OH NO. Why would a bad movie like this want to serve justice to its audience? That 16 year old is going all the way to the end credits and she'll be screaming and crying about it the whole way. Dammit.

But on the other doesn't look like we have any CGI. Which is a very big PLUS in my book. At least they're trying in that regard. If this movie can pull out a slightly unannoying plot and pump up the kill count (and not just the same kill over and over, I want to see that Yeti beat someone against a tree like Jason did with those teens in the sleeping bag) then we might just have a watchably likeable movie.

And it's a Yeti. I just...just can't say no to a Yeti movie.


  1. Jason London and John Schneider together at last!

  2. Don't get me started on the annoying kid in movies. The only thing that makes the annoying teen better than the annoying kid, is that he/she's usually played by a hot adult, so that helps. This movie looks like it could be fun too, so I'll have to check it out.
