Frozen (2010)

Hey guys! I'm back after a long hiatus, during which I successfully completed my master's degree (thank you, thank you). So, what's to say? I'm back to checking out some fresh horror DVD releases. First post-grad school movie is, officially, Adam Green's Frozen. And I've gotta say, right off the bat, it is much better than Hatchet. (I'll pause for a moment while you boo me and throw various rotted fruits at the screen.) It is much more mature filmmaking and exemplifies Adam Green's ability to do more than mediocre camp (I still eagerly anticipate Hatchet II). One thing is certain about Frozen: Green takes a simple idea that, at first, may seem largely implausible, and delivers a tight film of escalating tension and despair. This horror fan had a blast!
