Snow-sport enthusiasts, take note: Adam Green's unsettling thriller Frozen suggests that abiding by the rules and regulations of your local ski resort might not only be polite, but essential to your health. Green's hapless heroes--nice guy Dan (Kevin Zegers, Transamerica), his best pal Lynch (Shawn Ashmore, the X-Men franchise), and Dan's new girlfriend Parker (newcomer Emma Bell)--decided to cut a few corners in pursuit of more time on the slopes. Miscommunication with the staff results in the trio getting stuck on a lift some 60 feet in the air just moments before the resort closes for a three-day weekend. The hope for rescue soon dwindles, and the trio faces the decision to either endure the elements or somehow make their way to the ground without injury. All of the gruesome possibilities inherent to the situation--from frostbite and broken limbs to a pack of voracious wolves--are explored in unpleasant detail, but what sets Frozen apart from a simple splatterfest is the quality of the performances, especially Bell, who rises above her character's initial superficiality to present a wholly sympathetic character. Fans of Green's first film, the abysmal slasher tribute Hatchet, might find the pacing glacial (ahem), but those who admired his sophomore effort, the psychological thriller Spiral, will appreciate his attention to pacing and suspense, which puts Frozen on par with the very similar Open Water. The DVD includes commentary by Green and his stars, along with deleted scenes and a wealth of behind-the-scenes featurettes focusing on conception of the project, as well as the crew's struggles with the genuinely contentious weather at the Utah filming location. --Paul Gaita

So i must say, i was very surprised that this movie slipped under the radar but browsing through a store, i came upon the new release section and noticed "Frozen", read the back and was pretty impressed by the storyline.
One thing i wasn't impressed by was the director who directed this movie, he was the same guy who make that aweful movie "Hachet" but i must say, i was very curious to see how this movie would play out from the story from the back of a dvd box to the screen.
Long story short, it was even better than i thought it would be, the characters were very convincing and who would of thought, that getting stuck on a ski lift would be scarier and more stressful than a Freddy/jason/Myers film all put together.
The suspense was there throughout the whole film, the pain and agony they went through was so real, props to the no-name actors in this one.
It just goes to show that you dont need to be chased by a monster, killer or zombie to be scared or grossed out...a simple film like "Frozen" will do the same and even more.
Do not pass on this film, one of my favorites horror/thriller films of 2010!!
All the special features are very insightful and worth watching.
'Frozen' is highly recommended and one of the best releases of 2010.
