Default Blood Glacier (2013) - Official Announcement

Blood Glacier


THE GATES OF HELL ARE MADE OF ICE

On DVD from Monday 20th Jan. 2014

Splicing its way onto DVD this winter, comes the blood chilling creature feature – BLOOD GLACIER (aka The Station). With giant insects and crazed cross breeds galore, what’s not to get excited about in this perfect hybrid of horror and science gone wrong. Blood Glacier is the body horror we have been waiting for since John Carpenter’s The Thing.

Synopsis:

Working in a remote outpost of the German Alps, technician Janek and a cohort of scientists are stunned to discover a bleeding blood glacier parked high up in the mountain range. As the gory infected berg melts the blood attracts the local wildlife only to transform them into hellish hybrids and monstrous mutations.

As this fusion of nightmarish creatures evolves in the life-giving mountain air, a second group including Janek’s ex-girlfriend advance towards the base in what will become a showdown of humans vs. nature upended into giant wood lice, beetle-foxes, crossbreed flying predators and much, much worse.

Imagine every creature that makes you shiver fused into one and meet your ultimate fears up at… Blood Glacier!

We love it because:

Having always wondered what happens when you cross a wasp with a crow, we were delighted to see Blood Glacier answer that very question with grotesque abandon. With flesh-eating ibexes and oversized wood lice aplenty, all inhabiting the surroundings of a blood-ridden iceberg (blood berg if you will), we love this Darwinian nightmare as much as the creative hybrid, blood-thirsty mutant creatures.

We always love a good horror that can both terrify and gross us out. Having gone down a treat at its recent premier and run at the FRIGHTFEST 2013 ALL-NIGHTER (which toured around the country), it is clear that audiences agree with us that Blood Glacier fits effortlessly into that mold as it provides an almost perfect balance of body shock, scares and suspense making this a pitch perfect horror hybrid in an age when it’s never been more possible to actually make such nightmares come true…

Great to hear Klownz! The monsters are definitely a lot of fun. It's like Evolution for horror fans. What would you give it out of 10?

I would give it something like 7/10. I read a lot of people comparing it so "The Thing" but I don't really see it since both films set out to achieve very different things and have completely different tones, The Thing is totally serious whereas Blood Glacier is more light hearted.

I would love to see a sequel with a large budget & the film set in a city after the problem spreading... the possibilities would be endless!
