| The Himalayas are 'Alive' with the sound of yetis.
Remember the 1993 survival drama Alive, in which survivors of an air crash in the Andes avoid starvation by eating the flesh of the dead? Of course you do, and so do the makers of this trash, who copy that film's basic premise but throw in a manky moth-eaten mountain monster for good measure.

Instead of the Andes, Yeti: Curse Of The Snow Demon takes place in the Himalayas, where the air crash survivors -- members of an American football team (in Alive, it was a rugby team) -- find themselves not just faced with a moral dilemma, but with a monstrous ape-man as well, the snow-beast taking advantage of the disaster by restocking his cave larder, starting with the frozen corpses, but later turning its attention to the living.

Apparently made for TV (which explains the intermittent fades to black, presumably for commercial breaks), this is complete and utter Z-grade trash, from the hilariously bad plane crash during a raging storm, to the bloody finale, in which the yeti gets messy. It's shoddily written, poorly acted and features some of the worst CGI I have ever seen, but despite all of these factors (or, perhaps, because of them) the result is strangely watchable. It's hard to completely hate a film that is so blatantly unoriginal, incredibly daft, and surprisingly gory at times.

Watch in amazement as one of the characters splints his broken leg with a severed arm, laugh as the yeti cosies up to survivor Sarah (Carly Pope) in its cave, scratch your head in confusion as the characters search for matches amidst burning wreckage, and cheer in delight as the monster goes kill crazy at the end, crushing heads, ripping out throats and tearing off limbs. Yeti is far from great movie-making (some might say it's abominable), but it definitely has its moments.
