Frozen (2010) - Adam Green


Frozen... well they can't all be winners now can they. I know that Frozen isn't a horror movie per se, but it was in the horror section on Netflix so I am going to stick to my guns on this one. Frozen tells the tale of three friends that go on a skiing trip together. Its all fun and games until they are stranded on the ski lift. To make matters worse they are stuck there for like a week. To make matters worse-worse they get caught in a blizzard. To make matters worse-worse-worse there are blood thirsty wolves waiting to eat them below the lift. To make matters worse-worse-worse-worse they start to freeze to death. To make matters worse-worse-worse-worse-worse the girl that tagged along has.. to.. pee!

See how annoying that was to read? Well picture it on the screen and you have seen Frozen. The acting isn't very bad, then again how hard can it be to sit in one place for an hour and a half. I hate this movie just for the fact that it is a one-upper movie. The entire time the situation just keeps getting worse (did I mention that?). It becomes comedic in fact. During the movie I stopped considering that these people were in danger and just started getting angry at the way they go about everything. They don't do anything that a normal person stuck in that situation would do. It is stupid.

Lets talk about the scary parts of the movie, well actually we can just talk about the lack there of. There is nothing in this movie that is even remotely scary. This isn't a horror movie, its thriller and suspense. Watching this movie is just about as entertaining as watching Open Water. Remember that one? At least in that one you couldn't see below you. In this one you can see everything. When it was all over the only thing I could think was "Who Cares?"

The lack of scariness and sunken storyline really make this movie a horrible addition to the list of horror movies I've watched. If you want to check this movie out I'd suggest paring it with Open Water and The Happening. Yup... those are the movies I recommend if you like what's going on in Frozen. I can safely give this film an easy 1 out of 10. Just skip over it and find something else. You have the power to do it!

I gotta pee

S!D
  • Dee Snider (Lead singer of Twisted Sister) had a cameo in the movie as a voice saying "The last chair is through" he was also in the horror movie Strangeland.
  • Horror icon Kane Hodder (the best Jason Voorhees) makes an appearance in the film as Cody.
  • Every character is named after someone the director knows. Aww isn't that sweet.
