(out of 4)

Mexican horror film about a family possibly being stalked by a Yeti. Here's another Mexican film that I had to watch in Spanish without any subtitles but I don't believe this movie was ever dubbed or even shown in America. The idea of a Yeti in Mexico is rather laughable but I let that go and was enjoying the film until the Yeti finally showed up. The film runs only 70-minutes but the monster doesn't show up until after 50-minutes so we've got a lot of talk and build up for the monster. When the monster finally shows up the look of him is rather disappointing. It looks more like a polar bear outfit and it certainly comes off more cute than scary. The performances are fairly good and the direction keeps the film moving well but there's no question people are going to be disappointed that the monster doesn't have more action. The ending involves a Mexican guy trying to do karate on the thing, which does manage a few laughs. There's a lot of dialogue in the film including one member of the family trying to talk to the Yeti but I couldn't figure out any of it due to the lack of subs.
