“Blood in the snow”

Films: Abominable (2020)

Alias: None

Type: Ancient

Location: Forest/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: It never fails. Almost every year, some ape-man shows up in movies to look just like all the rest of them. And why not? It's so easy to look like a big killer primate, you don't even need CGI. But alas, even that small of a task can be somehow screwed up. But there's more than one way to make up for it.

History: Somewhere in the snowy regions of the Himalayas, there is a special flower that could hold to key to some of the greatest medical breakthroughs of our time. But alas, therein lies a catch. This flower, and by extension the whole forest surrounding the mountains, is guarded by an ancient beast. That being the fabled Yeti. Sure enough, anyone who dared enter its turf would not be found again in one piece.

Notable Kills: Slams a guy's head against a tree, tears the upper half of a man's head off after ripping off his arm, and tears another's face off before beating his body down until his ribs are showing.

Final Fate: Despite being pelted with bullets for so long, the Yeti is no worse for wear by the time almost everyone is dead. However, he does allow the survivor to leave with flower in hand. Either way, no one's going near these woods anytime soon.

Powers/Abilities: Immense strength and durability.

Weakness: Can only take so much damage before being slowed down for a while.

Scariness Factor: 3-It's painfully obvious at times that the Yeti is just a guy in a shoddy ape suit trucking through the snow. You can even see the sleeves, for corn's sake! That said, its kills are beyond violent at times, and really go to show how savage it is. You don't fight this guy, you just run. Just like most of the other movie ape cryptids, really.

Trivia: -This film was directed by Jamaal Burden, who also did the low-budget 2018 Christmas horror film, "Elves".

-It is possible that sightings of the Yeti can be attributed to misidentified bears. In fact, it was found that the creature's name is somewhat derived from "meti", which is the native tongue's word for the Himalayan brown bear.

We just GOT a film with the same title and cryptid last year, after all!
When face-lifts go horribly wrong.
