So I've been bored the past few nights and decided to check out some of 2010's horror flicks that I skipped over. I've managed to watch four of them in the past two days, so I figured I'd write about my initial reactions to the movies.
Frozen: Adam Green paints a story of three friends who venture to the snowy terrain of Mount Holliston for a snowboarding trip. In an unfortunate, last-minute decision, the friends persuade the ski lift operator to let them ride up for one last run down the slope. He warns them that bad weather is rolling in, and the resort needs to close, but he ends up giving into their demands, and the friends start the ride that will change their lives. To sum things up, the trio gets stranded on the ski lift and must make what I think would be an incredibly disturbing decision: to either freeze to death or attempt to leave the chairlift, despite the perils that await them below. This movie will stir up memories of Open Water, but I found Frozen to be much more disturbing and unsettling. Perhaps this is because I felt a connection to the couple in it, but it also didn't help that there were a few key, brutal scenes that left me unable to sleep. True, much of the scenarios in the movie aren't realistic, but if you're looking for a quick, entertaining movie (the run time is only 93 minutes), then I recommend checking this out.
