Frozen

Directed by Adam Green (Anchor Bay)

Frozen is a great example of survival horror. Instead of being pitted against a psycho killer or supernatural force, the leads have to deal with mother nature herself. Three college kids (Emma Bell, Shawn Ashmore, Kevin Zegers) go skiing and try to make it up the mountain for one last run. Through a series of coincidences they end up stranded on the chair lift and must figure out a way down before hypothermia sets in. Frozen uses practical effects instead of green screen (when wolves show up, they are the real things and not warped CGI creations), making the horror all the more tangible.
