If you’re an average horror fan, you probably have a checklist when it comes to finding the ultimate scary movie. Abominable is everything a classic should be. It contains a balanced amount of gore, jump scares, suspense and boobs. It never stagnates. When it’s not a psychological thriller, it’s a creature feature or an amazing slasher. It is, simply put, one of the best Bigfoot movies out there.
As if it couldn’t get any cooler, Abominable is, in fact, a scream queen and king reunion. Jeffrey Combs is unrecognizable, Lance Henriksen is a smart ass, and Tiffany Shepis has a short but memorable presence. There are other familiar faces, but the budget is humble and so is the casting. These are the kind of actors we’d get in a 1980’s horror b-movie, and that’s all we need.
The filmmakers slowly reveal their monster. First, the footsteps, then a newspaper headline, followed by an abduction and, just before shit hits the fan, Henriksen finds a cave with animal remains. Things start slowly but escalate quickly. The Bigfoot is a man in a suit with CG eyes, but it’s very convincing and it looks bad ass. Abominable is at times Hitchcockian and at times extremely cheesy.
