  • A typical day on the slopes turns into a chilling nightmare for three snowboarders when they get stranded on the chairlift before their last run. As the ski patrol switches off the night lights, they realize with growing panic that they’ve been left behind dangling high off the ground with no way down. With the resort closed until the following weekend and frostbite and hypothermia already setting in, the trio is forced to take desperate measures to escape off the mountain before they freeze to death. Once they make their move, they discover with horror that they have much more to fear than just the frigid cold. As they combat unexpected obstacles, they start to question if their will to survive is strong enough to overcome the worst ways to die?

  •                Snow-sport enthusiasts, take note: Adam Green's unsettling thrillerFrozensuggests that abiding by the rules and regulations of your local ski resort might not only be polite, but essential to your health. Green's hapless heroes--nice guy Dan (Kevin Zegers,Transamerica), his best pal Lynch (Shawn Ashmore, theX-Menfranchise), and Dan's new girlfriend Parker (newcomer Emma Bell)--decided to cut a few corners in pursuit of more time on the slopes. Miscommunication with the staff results in the trio getting stuck on a lift some 60 feet in the air just moments before the resort closes for a three-day weekend. The hope for rescue soon dwindles, and the trio faces the decision to either endure the elements or somehow make their way to the ground without injury. All of the gruesome possibilities inherent to the situation--from frostbite and broken limbs to a pack of voracious wolves--are explored in unpleasant detail, but what setsFrozenapart from a simple splatterfest is the quality of the performances, especially Bell, who rises above her character's initial superficiality to present a wholly sympathetic character. Fans of Green's first film, the abysmal slasher tributeHatchet, might find the pacing glacial (ahem), but those who admired his sophomore effort, the psychological thrillerSpiral, will appreciate his attention to pacing and suspense, which putsFrozenon par with the very similarOpen Water. The DVD includes commentary by Green and his stars, along with deleted scenes and a wealth of behind-the-scenes featurettes focusing on conception of the project, as well as the crew's struggles with the genuinely contentious weather at the Utah filming location.--Paul Gaita

    Adam Green Redeems Himself With A Slice of Pure Human Horror!
    Honestly, my first experience with writer/director Adam Green was the abysmal “Hatchet”; a movie me and my buddy @Dave79 have argued the quality of that movie again and again. Well, I am still strong in my stance that “Hatchet” is not a good film, but this time, I have to say Adam Green may have redeemed himself with the movie “Frozen”. The film is just frighteningly claustrophobic in the manner that it channels the feeling of helplessness. “Frozen” …

    *** out of ****    The trio of protagonists in Adam Green's "Frozen" - Parker (Emma Bell), Dan (Kevin Zegers), and Joe (Shawn Ashmore) - find themselves in a sticky situation. They've hit the slopes for a few days to spend some time skiing and/or snowboarding. They insist on leaving all electronics back at wherever they are staying for the time being; and they're ready to embrace the snow, the ski lifts, and those who are just as passionate about their pastime as they are.     …

    REALLY GOOD MOVIE
          FROZEN      may contain spoiler      Adam Green is a good filmmaker from what I have come to gather, some people love him others not so much. You may remember a little Slasher movie maybe you have heard of it, a kick back to the days of Slasher glory called "Hatchet". I have heard both sides on that film from those who like it and those who don't, as for me, that is a review for another day. Maybe you have heard of "Spiral" …

    We've seen so many thrillers in which the threat comes from something unnatural, be it a ghost, a zombie, or a masked serial killer that cannot himself be killed. This is partly why "Frozen" is such a refreshing experience - nature itself is the threat. Human beings are capable of withstanding a great deal, but there's always a breaking point, and this movie does a pretty good job of searching for it. It begs the question: What would you do if you found yourself in a similar situation? Is there …

    This film has the feel of a TV movie. The acting is decent and the story is OK, yet the film is unsatisfying. The characters don't get developed that well until the drama is fully unfolding, and the film is really just focused on the trauma of the 3 young adults trapped on the ski lift and their diminishing hopes for survival. When the final rescue scene comes to its quick conclusion the viewer may also be saying "thank God this is over." Unless you are a real fan of this type of cinematic terrorizing …
