Yeah, see, this is why I don’t ski. The first trailer for Adam Green’s thriller “Frozen” has landed online, and it looks a heck of a lot better than I thought it would be, without ever really giving away too many of the money shots. The film is less a horror movie and more of a survival flick, with three friends trapped in a ski lift overnight. It’s cold and they’re really high up in the air, and then there are the natural elements to survive. The kind that bites.
A typical day on the slopes turns into a chilling nightmare for three snowboarders when they get stranded on the chairlift before their last run. As the ski patrol switches off the night lights, they realize with growing panic that they’ve been left behind dangling high off the ground with no way down. With the resort closed until the following weekend and frostbite and hypothermia already setting in, the trio is forced to take desperate measures to escape off the mountain before they freeze to death. Once they make theirmove, they discover with horror that they have much more to fear than just the frigid cold. As they combat unexpected obstacles, they start to question if their will to survive is strong enough to overcome the worst ways to die.
Starring Emma Bell, Kevin Zegers, Shawn Ashmore, and directed by Adam Green. In theaters February 5, 2010. Via Apple.
