"The Menace of SkiFree"

Films: Snowbeast (1977)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Forest

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Bigfoot? Sasquatch? Possibly. Whatever this ape man was, he did a good job of following cryptid tradition of not being seen very often.

History: Somewhere in the forests of Colorado, a meat-eating ape man wandered the woods, looking to pick off the local skiers. While some wished to pin the blame on something more rational, there would be those who would hunt it down for its crimes.

Notable Kills: Pushing a pile of logs down a hill so that they trap a man in a busted trailer.

Final Fate: After being shot several times, the beast staggers away. Then it gets shot more times. Then it's stabbed by a ski pole, and plummets off the mountain.

Powers/Abilities: Surprising resilience.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-While not being able to see it most of the time can be frustrating, it does an effective job of ambushing others. Though when it is seen, it does kind of look like a second-rate Wampa.

Trivia: -This film was supposedly inspired by literature by Roger Patterson, who was known for producing the most famous alleged footage of Bigfoot.

-This film was directed by Herb Wallerstein, who's better known for collaborating on other T.V. works such as "Star Trek" and "The Brady Bunch".
