On a chilly winter night, three skiers huddle together on a chairlift, confused as to why their ride to the summit suddenly stops. The sting of the icy wind worsens when the floodlights power down, leaving them stranded in the dark. As they wait for help, the reality of the nightmare hits them. The ski resort has just closed, abandoning the group stranded high above the mountain slopes in an oncoming snow storm. With ominous howls echoing through the surrounding woods, they will need to make some tough decisions in order to survive.
Writer/director Adam Green skillfully guides this real-world thriller, pushing three college students to confront their natural fears of the dark, cold , heights, and beyond, to see how far a human is willing to go to survive. With bone-chilling performances by Kevin Zegers, Shawn Ashmore, and Emma Bell, Frozen continues horror’s time-honored tradition of scaring audiences away from their favorite recreational activities. —Sundance Film Festival

Extremely disturbing concept for someone afraid of heights like myself. Although there are some nice work put in the cinematography here to truly make you feel at unease, I found the characters to be so remarkably unbelivable/stupid, and the actors to do such a miserable job in portraying them that I stopped the film just 10 minutes before the end. I couldn't bother to sit through, and that is very rare to me.
Winter wears on, and again, most of the more interesting openings of the week are local, beginning, almost inevitably, New York. Michael
