Overview

Two men with opposing views undertake a dangerous trip to the Himalayas in search of the Yeti. Although Nigel Kneale and Rudolph Cartier’s original 1955 TV drama The Creature hasn’t survived, this Hammer film version (scripted by Kneale) is remarkably faithful to its source, albeit on a grander scale and budget. It also boasts the small-screen’s top actor of the 1950s, Peter Cushing, recreating his TV role.
