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!
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…
Low budget, nail-biting effective horror movie. One of the most underrated movies of the current decade. Come on! Everybody watch this!
I actually thorough enjoyed this. It had genuine and natural suspense that you could relate to. I thought the main 3 characters did well with what they had. The script could've used some work but I don't think it hurt the film too much. The ending I felt was a tad bit rushed. One of the better low budget films I have seen lately.
This movie stressed me out. Severely.
I'm glad I came into this blind. Had I known what this was about, I probably would have passed on it. All I knew was that it was a horror film that shared it's title with the most mediocre Disney film of all time, and I figured, "why not?"
I loved it. After an hour and a half of sweaty palms, labored breathing, and uncontrollable wincing, I can say this is a film that successfully scared me. Every shot looks beautiful, the acting and script were authentic, and I was a fan of the smart editing choices. My only complaint is that the beginning soundtrack sounded like the directors personal iPod playlist, and it was super whack. But that was what - two songs? I'll get over it.
An awesome film that I probably won't rewatch anytime soon. I can't possibly handle this one more time right now.
There is no singing. Nothing about letting it go. This is a horror/thriller about being trapped on a snow lift.
Alright film. Nothing special.
Great score. Loved the movie. This was astounding. Really liked Shawn Ashmore's performance here.
The cold never bothered me anyway?
This could very well be the movie I hate most... It's supposed to be scary because "it could happen to you." It's about three of the dumbest people on planet earth getting stuck on a ski lift.. I hated all three of them... And it was a combination of poor writing, poor directing, and poor acting.. There's a scene where one guy jumps down and snaps his leg and the bone is sticking out, so in order to create that effect they had the actor lay there holding a stick by his leg.. Literally a twig they found in the woods.. Awful movie
My fists were clenched for pretty much the entire film. This was an unexpectedly engaging thrill ride that had me on the edge of my seat, trying not to look, but unable to look away! Perhaps it would have been a bit better had the two male leads not ultimately succumb to the same fate, but overall it was a great movie.
Nice cinematography, decent acting, but the story sucks big time.okay, if you are desperate enough, maybe you would jump from 15 meters height, but I never understood why in some films characters easily forget their friends' death and just go on almost as if nothing happened. With a better manuscript this film would have been much better.
