“IN THE TRADITION OF SPIELBERG, ONE THAT WILL TURN YOUR KNUCKLES WHITE AND MAKE YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT YOUR NEXT SKI TRIP.”
RYAN STEWARD, SUICIDE GIRLS.
Having already garnered rave reviews that have seen it hailed as “a gripping, intense and inventive horror-thriller” (Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood), “a triumph… relentless and harrowing” (Steve Barton, Dread Central) and “terrifying… will do for skiing what ‘Jaws’ did for swimming” (Brad Miska, Bloody Disgusting.com), Frozen is the latest shocker from writer-director Adam Green (Hatchet; Spiral) and producer Peter Block (the Saw movies; Daybreakers; Crank; Rambo).
Frozen stars Shawn Ashmore (the X-Men trilogy), Kevin Zegers (Dawn Of The Dead) and Emma Bell (Death In Love; New York City Serenade) as a trio of twenty-somethings – best friends Joe Lynch (Ashmore) and Dan Walker (Zegers), plus Dan’s girlfriend Parker O’Neil (Bell) – hoping to spend some quality time skiing and snowboarding in the picturesque resort of Mount Holliston. But a typical day on the slopes turns into a chilling nightmare when they find themselves unexpectedly stranded on a chairlift shortly after the ski resort closes for the week. Unknowingly left dangling high above the ground and with no apparent safe way down as night begins to set in, with increasing panic they soon realize that the threats of frostbite and hypothermia are the least of their worries.
Forced to take extremely desperate measures in order to survive the bitter cold, overcome unexpected obstacles and attempt to reach safety, the three friends are driven to ask not only if they have the will to survive but also to consider what are the worst ways to die.
Co-starring Rileah Vanderbilt (Hatchet; Spiral) and horror-genre fan favourite Kane Hodder (Jason from the ‘Friday the 13th’ movies), Frozen is an effective, nail-biting experience that will keep viewers on the edges of their seats until its final frame.
