File this under so incredibly bad that it's hilarious from the theme song which is to the tune of "Teddy Bear's Picnic" "if you go down to the woods today you probably will be thrilled, if you go down in the woods today you probably will be killed, there's a friendly beast that lurks about, he likes to feast, you won't get out without being killed and chopped into little pieces." If that didn't sell you, how about if I tell you that the women in the film look like men...ugly men...really quite a change I guess and perhaps I shouldn't be so harsh, but wow I've never seen them cast such unlikeable characters in any film ever. Not to mention they cannot even come close to acting, and I'm going to bet they just made up the plot as they went. Dry patches in the film where nothing happens are impossible, but for example a scene where a man in a wheelchair goes for a HIKE by himself uphill....then meets with a man in a yetti suit and is pushed off the hill are priceless. The yetti terrorizes the other campers, but not nearly soon enough. Hilarious and dreadful all at the same time.
