Three skiers are stranded on a chairlift and forced to make life-or-death choices that prove more perilous than staying put and freezing to death.
Wow. Disney has done it again. I sure want to build a snowman after this flick!
There's a severe lack of talking snowmen.
This is an original and taunt chiller from Adam Green the director of Hatchet, it stars Emma Bell, Shawn Ashmore and Kevin Zegers as 3 college kids snowboarding for the day at a resort somewhere in New England. Being skint students the decide to bribe the ski lift operator 100 bucks so that they don't have to buy expensive lift passes and at the end of the day manage to convince the same operator to let the go up one last time even though the lifts are about to shut down for the week. Through a series of misunderstandings the lifts get shut down and the trio are stuck, high above the ground with no one likely to come and…
I've ridden on airplanes, swam in big oceans across the world and ridden a few amusement park rides, but I have never, and I will never, get on a skilift. This is the movie that shows you why. Don't get it mixed up with the Disney version, the only thing they are screaming to "Let It Go" in this is that infernal lift.
Parker, her boyfriend Dan and their friend Joe Lynch are at a skiing resort for the weekend, having a great time. When evening sets in they want to make one last run before they leave, but due to an unfortunate mixup, they get stranded on the chairlift as it is shut down. Now everyone is leaving for…
Director Adam Green showed versatility here by moving from one sub-genre of horror to another. His directorial debut ‘Hatchet’ (2007) and its sequel ‘Hatchet II’ (2010) were his bloody comedic homages to the slasher film. During the time between those movies, we had the minimalist survival terror of ‘Frozen’. It is a bleak suspenseful tense tale of a skiing weekend gone tragically wrong.
Three teenage friends Parker, Dan and Lynch slowly die while being trapped high up on a chairlift for five whole days when left behind accidentally in a skiing resort that has closed until next weekend. Getting severe frostbite, they are also without food and water, no phones and are isolated from people for help.
The first act…
Bros before hoes. That is a lesson that Michael Bay taught us back in 2007 with Transformers. This phrase has never been more relevant then in Adam Green's 2010 film Frozen. What impresses me the most is when a director can take any given budget and make his film exceed the limitations. That's what Green was able to do here working on a "micro budget".
The premise is very simple. People get stuck up on a chairlift at a ski resort as it shuts down. That alone is a fantastic set up, and Green stretches it to the fullest extent. Albeit sometimes a little too much, but still great. Usually when I start watching something at 1am, I don't really…
the only female character in the friend group: you know i had to do it to em
Frozen is a decent horror film, I guess. I only watched it out of self-intrest after getting it mistaken for the 2013 version about a year or two ago while searching for something to watch. Sadly, even the overrated (but likeable) Disney film is better. I was hoping it'd be better (meaning it'd be great because I quite enjoy the 2013 Disney film) But, overall, this film is passable.
Adam Green directs this film with a very basic and disctintive style. However, the level of fear or unpredictably never really rises to the occasion. It's predictable for the most part, and it's not too intense. The writing could've be polished at some parts. Some times it feels like an early…
Grim, absolutely the highest of level of grim.
When you are stuck on a ski lift half way up a mountain and your choices are:
Freezing to death
Falling to an icy death
Being eaten by wolves
You know you are having a bad day.
The concept is gripping enough to keep you invested, but the acting and writing is nothing too special for a concept that deserves a more exciting execution.
Not to be confused with the Disney movie, this one is traumatizing and really creepy. I got carried away watching this movie and got really scared.
Personally I really love this movie. It's really intense, it spends a lot of time telling us the relationship between three main characters, which a lot of directors don't do. Maybe he went a little overboard with too much sensible stories, but personally I find this kind of story-telling appealing.
As with the plot, it's really intense and thrilling. I love the pace of this movie. But a few details could've been managed better.
Overall, I like it very much. 4 stars!
very cool :)
First time i watched this movie and really enjoyed it . I always enjoy movies that have a snowy setting so that's always a bonus for me . The story is simple but acted great by the main actors . It could be a bit more gory for me at moments , that's why this movie is a thriller and not a horror movie . Had lots of fun with this movie but next time i go snowboarding i'm gonna take my phone & a whistle and a survival package with me !
