Janek is a technician on a climate observation station high up in the German Alps, one of a team of scientists preparing their outpost for visit from the Environment Minister. Their routine is interrupted by a strange discovery; a red liquid pouring from a nearby glacier, melted free from the ice crust that is shrinking with climate change. When the 'glacier blood' comes in contact with the local wildlife, it causes changes that are at first curious, then horrifying. Soon Janek and his team have

May 2, 2014:Critics Consensus: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Weaves a Tangled Web
This week at the movies, we've got only one wide release: the hotly-anticipated The Amazing...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Yes, this is gruesome Euro-horror about the climate apocalypse and the possible end of life on earth as we know it, but it's also fun for the whole family.
Sometimes genre-based filmmakers don't know how to make their material fun without making fun of their material, but that's not a failing of Mr. Kren's.
As if climate change weren't worrying enough, studies show it's leading to an uptick in the production of cheesy German-language monster flicks.
The attempts made to flesh out Janek and Tanja's rocky relationship, especially, are pure Screenwriting 101 contrivance.
The monsters are a scream, squishing crossbreeds that are all fur and teeth and exposed, pulsing, ready-to-burst viscera. And the screamers are a bit monstrous ...
This is one of those endeavors that will no doubt endure the test of time on viewing lists of very ambitious bad movies.
Doesn't have a rich imagination, and while its locations are gorgeous, nearly saving the viewing experience, the mayhem contained within is lukewarm at best.
Decent gore, fun creatures and its high-concept premise make Blood Glacier an enjoyable night out
Blood Glacier is exactly why English dubbing should be abolished for foreign movies. It destroys what could have been a fun creature flick with emotionless, bland voice work that does nothing but distract.
When it comes to low budget horror movies, sometimes the less you see ends up being the most effective...Kern should have applied this...to the unconvincing, Ed Wood-worthy monsters, and Blood Glacier would have been a much more successful film.
An old-school creature feature that seeks only to peel your nerves back and gross you out -- and does its job.
"Blood Glacier" is too sleepy to do anything with its guano-stirring premise.
For all its familiar genre elements, Blood Glacier is pretty entertaining, assuming a basic predisposition to like monster movies.
Now and then, Blood Glacier seems so damn goofy that it's tempting to view it as a stealth comedy.
The film straddles a very awkward line between creature feature, conspiracy thriller, and domestic drama, all without novelty or suspense.
Though essentially a familiar monster movie / survival horror story, Blood Glacier is so well put together that it feels fresh and punches well above its weight.
a smart, contemporary creature feature that addresses, through genre, the radical environmental changes that we're all dooming ourselves to fight, flee or adopt.
