Abominable is an interesting little film. Jeffery Combs has a part in it so it was paraded to horror fans due to his Re-Animator role. It should have just focused on the plot. I mean who doesn't want to see a bloody Bigfoot style movie.
After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When one of his new neighbors, Karen (Ashley Hartman), is attacked by a gigantic ape-like beast, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police -- and even his personal nurse, Otis Wilhelm (Christien Tinsley) -- dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself.
Sound good? Well it is, in it's own way. As Bigfoot films go it's probably the best of the bunch. As a monster film it's definitely different.
