Fessenden, who directed, produced, cowrote, edited and even has a part in the film rightly values mood at least as much as he does delivering more abominable snow monsters.

The problem is that the ghostly culprit, some sort of nature spirit, isn't nearly as terrifying as the arguments that Pollack makes, or the fact that the ice in such places really is weakening.

Die-hard greenies may find this as unsettling as it's meant to be. For everyone else, it's closer to an atmospheric act of recycling.

The film isn't very interesting because it isn't well made.

The Last Winter's heart is in the right place, but it isn't pumping any blood.

It works eerily well.

It's the imaginative background, and Fessenden's talent at insinuating it into the action, that counts -- and unnerves -- in this most chilling of global-warming movies.

Even if this is no red-blooded shocker, its unsettling mood lingers long past the final fade-out, hinting at all sorts of retribution just lying in wait for polluters.

Larry Fessenden has fashioned a different kind of horror movie here, one that moves at glacial speed, offers few scares and provides the viewer virtually no satisfaction.

[It] accomplishes with a modest budget and a talented cast what bigger, slicker, gorier contemporary horror movies rarely do. It taps into a collective dread compounded by the guilt of our complicity.

Gruesome things happen in The Last Winter, but there's no gratuitous gore or torture, and the film's real power comes from its building sense that something really, really bad is about to happen.

Call it the first green horror picture, punctuated by ample doses of red. Oh, and it's also scary as f--k.

The acting's good, the camera work is haunting and [director] Fessenden continues to build his image as the thinking person's creepmeister.

Being adept at maintaining unease will take you only so far if your dialogue sounds as if it's been pilfered from pulp paperbacks and your actors' performances range from slightly wooden to downright oaken.

Something wicked this way comes in the nifty horror film The Last Winter, crawling through the hallways and howling into the dread night.

...the film should please Fessenden's loyal followers and win him new ones.

The Last Winter was shot in northern Iceland and Alaska, and despite some too-explicit imagery in the final moments, the claustrophobia-to-psychosis continuum is harrowingly fluid.
