Beast Man Snow Man

(Jû jin yuki otoko)

Synopsis

The original Japanese story concerns the discovery of a large prehistoric Adbominable snowman-like creature in the Japanese Alps by a group of hikers. When a travelling circus crew attempts to capture the monster, they accidentally kill the monster's offspring instead. This enrages the larger snowman who kills the circus men, destroys a native village, and kidnaps the lead female. The hikers, along with the sole survivor of the native village, track the monster to its cave. The native girl saves the female hiker by attacking the snowman. The girl and the monster fall to their deaths inside a volcanic pit. (Wikipedia)
