Chilling Trailer for ‘Frozen’

frozen Chilling Trailer for Frozen

When the trailer for the new Adam Green thriller Frozen hit the web the other day, I thought, “Great someone finally made a movie about my first girlfriend from high school.” I was slightly disappointed to find out that wasn’t the case. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t keep my fingers crossed that somebody will one day write about her…but I digress.

Frozen is a actually new single-setting thriller in the style of Open Water and this year’s grossly under-appreciated The Canyon.

Shawn Ashmore (X2), Emma Bell (Gracie) and Kevin Zegers (Fifty Dead Men Walking) star as three college students out for a good time on the slopes, skiing and snowboarding. With the day winding down, they decide to take one last run at the mountain and as they are riding the chair lift it stops about halfway up and then the mountain goes dark as the resort closes, leaving the three stranded high above the ground.

What starts as a weekend of fun, soon turns to panic as the trio realize that help is not coming and they are forced to make some difficult life or death decisions. We have the trailer for you, but Peter Sciretta from Slash Film warns the last 30 seconds are what he considers to be SPOILERS. He was able to catch an early viewing of the film, so I’ll take his word on it and skip the ending because I’d like to see this film.


These types of films aren’t for everyone and I’m sure Frozen will only play to a select audience, which is a shame because this is the way horror is supposed to be done. No blood, no gore, no “torture porn” – just a good relatable story that makes everyone watching think, “That could happen to me!” Open Water accomplished that goal very well several years ago by making the audience think “What if?” If you get a chance to watch The Canyon, then I highly suggest you do so, because you’ll never want to go hiking in the Grand Canyon again.

People are fascinated with “What if” scenarios, which is evident by the popularity of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Game by University Games. I know I sit and think sometimes, “What if this plane is going to crash?” or “What if this train derails with me on it?” I know it sounds morbid but these are real life situations that can and do occur. What if you are stuck under water in your car or if armed assailants stormed into your bank while you are making a transaction? If you think about these things now, then you may find yourself better prepared if they ever DO happen.

I know if I was stuck high up on a chair lift with 2 friends (assuming one wasn’t a fat butt) then I would put the strongest one hanging onto the bottom of the lift while my buddy and I climb down him making a reverse ladder. That would put us about 18 feet closer the ground and would make dropping a lot safer for one of us. He could then ski to the bottom and get help.

What would you do to survive in a situation like the one presented in Frozen?

  1. This movie looks really good. The way horror films should be. =)

  2. This was shot at the ski resort 25 minutes from my house – my wife was up there while they were shooting it. Unfortunately I thought it was just going to be a direct-to-DVD horror movie or I would have made it up there for a set visit.

    Dang it!


  3. Wow this movie looks awful the trailer so stupid,even the part were the guy jumbe down and you see fake legs going to hit the floor how can u make a horror film out of people being stuck on a lift. The director should take his fist and punch himself. The movie is crap

  4. I’m going to give it a chance. Movies like this, if done right, can make for a great time at the movies.

  5. There’s nothing scarier in my mind than being forced into a catch twenty two. Either freeze in the lift or be eaten by wolves in the dark. I think it could do well.

  6. @Mario

    Maybe you should wait to see the movie to see HOW they mange to make a film out if that story.


  7. Hmmm… As soon as the lift stops, they make the reverse ladder, then one person goes for help. If they all try jumping down, odds are at least one of them won’t be injured. I couldn’t watch this movie without thinking how stupid the characters are. Skiing at night is never a good idea.

  8. At first this plot seems a bit silly but I do like the “what if” scenerios. Thinking more about it, that would suck to be stranded on a lift. Could they make a good movie out of that idea…maybe too soon to tell. I’ll rent it, probably not worth the price of a movie ticket.

  9. Am i the only one that finds it ironic that shawn ashmore played iceman in the xmen movies LOL

  10. Hey Vic–
    Relay to your buddy Paul that jumping from a ski lift is a bad idea. True story here…

    Once when I was 15 my dad and I were on a chair lift at Alyeska Ski Resort in Alaska. There was a scheduled power shut-off, that was listed on both ends of the lift that day, slated to be about 30 minutes long. Dad and I went for it thinking we could beat the clock. We made it about 60 feet from the top, and the lift crapped out. We were roughly 70 feet off the ground. The genius in front of us decided he didn’t want to wait, kicked off both his skis, and jumped. When he hit the ground, I watched both of his legs break. His left one compound fractured, and poked through his snow pants. He also broke his pelvis, his back, and his ankle. We watched the ski patrol come out of the shack and scoop him up. They were just taking off down the mountain with him strapped to the sled when the lift came back on. My dad turned to me, and said, “I wonder if it was worth it?” Assuming that guy was crippled for life, my answer was a resounding “NO”.

    If there would have been nobody out there that guy would’ve been dead in half an hour.

    Anyway…movie looks cool. I’ll check it out.

  11. @joe

    Wow, thanks for sharing that story.


  12. I wouldn’t have been on the lift after closing and neither would any of you. (Been stranded on one in a storm and that wasn’t fun)

  13. Ok, even though it doesn’t seem that realistic, the trailer was still made really well! The music and editing was pretty creepy! I would definitely see this, there are much worse horror movies out there. It’s nice to see a movie that is more psychological horror and less blood and guts.

  14. Wow this looked so cool at first but then i realized that 90 percent of the movie is them sitting on a ski lift bitching about what they are gonna do, it sorta turned me off. BUT if something like this were to happen dang that would be bad. Honestly I would just wait it out if it was too high to jump. Like what ten hours until morning when they turn it back on. I know it would be tough but that is your best option if you can’t make the jump.

    It would make it cooler if there was something on the mountain trying to get them instead of just the wilderness. not my cup of tea

  15. Fenix, the girl said it was Sunday, and nobody was coming back until Friday. You couldn’t stay there for 5 days! This looks like an interesting premise – but based on the trailer, I’ll probably wait for TV/DVD release.
