But if you want to see the monster-movie variation on "Rear Window", you have to watch "Abominable". Everybody knows that, right? Shit, Lance Henriksen is in both movies! Whuddabout that, huh?

Hate being cliche but this film definitely felt like watching paint dry... albeit the paint was beautifully shot! Can't wait till this obvious rip off of Holden Caulfield kicks it in his "Magic Bus!"
