Poster for Adam Green's Stuck-on-a-Ski-Lift Thriller 'Frozen'
If you scanned the Sundance 2010 line-up you may have noticed this thriller which is premiering in the Park City at Midnight section next January. I first found out about Frozen in the comments of the last one-room thrillers we featured a trailer for - Exam. Instead of being stuck in one room, though, this time three people are stuck on a chairlift. If you've ever been skiing and been on a chairlift, well, you know that you can't really move or do anything at all. It's the perfect place to set a horror movie like this. And according to some early reviews, Frozen is actually pretty damn good. ShockTillYouDrop has debuted the official poster for Frozen.
The three people trapped (I don't know why they only show two on the poster?) are played by Kevin Zegers ("Gossip Girl"), Shawn Ashmore (X-Men Trilogy) and Emma Bell (Gracie). Frozen was written and directed by Adam Green, a Massachusetts-born filmmaker who also directed Hatchet and Spiral. A month ago, no one had even heard about this movie. Then it made it into Sundance, they screened it at BNAT, and now it's the next big thing (or at least I think it has the potential to be). Harry Knowles says it received the "second best Audience reaction of BNAT." And Peter from SlashFilm called and told me he actually loved it as well.
