Guide Review - 'The Frozen' DVD Review
Not to be confused with the trapped-on-a-ski lift thriller Frozen, The Frozen similarly strands people in the snowy wild, but this time around, there's a supernatural element that makes for some genuinely creepy moments, particularly when playing around with sound and shadows and the paranoia of being stuck inside a tent without being able to see outside. It's atmospheric and yet still manages to convey real human emotions in the couple's crumbling yet still loving relationship. On the downside, the simple storyline is unoriginal and builds to a groan-worthy twist ending, exacerbated by the fact that the film drags for stretches with no dialogue and repetitive scenes that don't further the plot. Still, The Frozen is an attractive, well-acted debut from writer-director Andrew Hyatt that's a cut above the average direct-to-video fare.
