Motion Picture Purgatory: YETI: GIANT OF THE 20TH CENTURY (1977)

“It’s kinda like the 1976 KING KONG remake but with Bigfoot instead of an ape, and the CN Tower instead of the Empire State Building” was surely the elevator pitch for the weird Toronto-lensed ’70s monster movie YETI: GIANT OF THE 20TH CENTURY, a film that pits the cryptozoological phenomenon against unscrupulous scientists and the confused citizens of Canada’s most populous city. In this Canuxploitation-exclusive edition of Motion Picture Purgatory, Rick Trembles¬†looks at the filmed misadventures of Canada’s biggest contribution to Bigfoot cinema and one of Ontario’s hairiest tourists.
