Watched "Shriek of the Mutilated" again.
Really is quite an unintentionally hilarious film. Basically, one of those Bigfoot-sploitation films of the 70's. The title leads one to believe that it's far gorier than it actually is, as this genre of crazy film from this era sold themselves to a great degree by their insane titles. "Bloody Pit of Horror" comes to mind, an entirely PG at most film in which not a single drop of blood is ever shed onscreen.
This one does have quite a bit of blood in it tho, and seemingly random bits of nastiness thrown in for good measure. Like when the distraught nutcase cuts his harridan wife's throat with an electric carving knife (offscreen), or her hilarious last-breath revenge, when she crawls across the floor barely alive, and throws a toaster in the tub while he's bathing! The "Yeti" looks like the Shaggy DA, it's one of the funniest things Ive ever seen on film, and I just cant help but bust out laughing when I get a glimpse of his tennis shoes beneath his outfit.
This film is truly insane, I love every minute of it
