As clunky as it is emotionally unconvincing.

Promising elements never quite bind.

Though the oblique and confused storytelling saps the heat out of Wind Chill, the picture still boasts a game performance from Emily Blunt

The passage to ex-rental DVD bins will be swift for this lethally pretentious bit of low-rent schlock.

All surface and no depth, with an incongruous ending that makes for an unsatisfying ending to an indecisive movie.

Wind Chill suffers from an underdeveloped screenplay, which feels like a first draft, erroneously deemed ready for production.

Obviously meant to chill us to the bone, but it barely registers on the cinematic thermometer.

Wind Chill blows into increasingly nightmarish and ludicrous territory, introducing frostbitten ghouls, priestly apparitions, a nasty cop, and a cycle of hallucinations.

Despite its failings, Wind Chill represents a road rarely taken by 21st-century American horror films: Original (in the non-remake sense of the term), subtle and restrained.

Well before day breaks, it's the movie's plot (which would have made for an outstanding Outer Limits episode) that has come to seem stuck in an endless loop.

Ropey, derivative and very, very boring horror-thriller.

After a great set-up, we're left stranded by the side of the road, wishing the filmmakers had come up with a conclusion at least somewhere close to as good.

At the very least, it's an old-fashioned ghost story with half a brain -- and that's got to be worth more than a casual glance.

Imagine a campfire story told by Jack London after downing a bottle of Jack Daniels. The chilly atmosphere would be in full force but the plotting might be a bit punch drunk.

Wind Chill deserves a merit badge for even trying to tell a horror story without resorting to tired and amateurish shock value. The picture's puzzle might not piece together properly, but the effort is appreciated.

Almost always, you can expect the worst when a studio dumps a film without advance screenings. But the well-crafted thriller Wind Chill, with rising star Emily Blunt, is the very rare case where somebody (in this case, Sony) goofed.

...a refreshingly adult horror effort that boasts a pair of phenomenal lead performances.
