For some, the phrase “made-for-TV movie” is synonymous with crap. Those people are what we might call…”correct.” However, much like a basketball whipped overhand from half-court, there is the occasional one that connects and scores. Snowbeast, is not one of those. Duel is one of those.

It’s Jaws, on the slopes. Join us!
