The Abominable Snowman


High up on the mountaintops of the Himalayas and the snow-covered recesses of our movie libraries sits The Abominable Snowman, the 1957 monster mythic starring the legendary yeti terrorizing any explorer that dared to traverse its home. Much like the titular man-beast of the mountain shadows, the fascination with the snowman has yet to die, which is why British horror label Hammer and producer Ben Holden are rebooting the film for a new generation. Hammer, which owns the rights to the original, is looking to add a modern, dark spin on the campy classic, which starred Forrest Tucker, Peter Cushing, and Maureen Connell as a team of very misguided explorers. While the expedition in the original had the intention of finding the monster of the mountain, the reboot, written by Matthew Read (Pusher) and  Jon Croker (Angel of Death), is going in a more sinister path; this time around, an illegal expedition ascends an unclimbed peak on a treacherous mountain range, accidentally awakening the ancient yeti as they trespass. Essentially, they done messed up.
