Overall, it's a one note premise, where the characters, stuck up on a lift, have nowhere to go and quite fittingly the movie in turn, goes nowhere.

You'll definitely recall this freezing flick the next time you go skiing. For the next 15 years or so.

Reinterpretation of The Snow Queen, Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairytale as an animated, female empowerment musical.

Green avoids Hatchet's corny clichés and totally redeems himself with a harrowing portrait of humans at the mercy of the great outdoors.

Characters possess serious lack of thinking ability and survival skills. Even when it comes to stuff like zipping up their coats all the way.

Adam Green's fun 2006 horror film Hatchet revelled in the art of self-aware pastiche, but it is in his second major work that he has found a legitimately great concept out of which to wring more nuanced thrills.

The parts of the film that work are flat-out fantastic. There just aren't enough of them.

Like Jack London's 'To Build a Fire,' this is an exercise in extracting suspense from the circumstances of a harsh wintry environment and a bad situation rather than imposing danger in the form of an outside (and potentially vanquishable) foe.

Lessons of Darkness

Green?s nifty framing, dawning-dread pacing, and fixation on corporeal deterioration proves sturdy.

The characters, situation, and dialogue are stretched a bit thin.

While making the occasional narrative misstep, this is effective low-budget filmmaking, and undoubtedly a notch better than what usually passes as suspense these days.

Combustible Celluloid
October 1, 2010
The movie has a good flow, and it understands how to generate thrills, but the characters, situation and dialogue are stretched a bit thin.

Green orchestrates all this with some skill but not too much gore. A minor tour de force.
| Original Score: 3/5

However much fun it is to watch, it's a lot more fun to pull it apart afterwards.

Daily Express (UK)
September 27, 2010
Sustains interest and tension with some inventive plotting and gratuitous misfortune, aided by a cast convincingly scared witless, even if their characters left me, well, rather cold.

Armed with an appealingly pared-down premise, Frozen effectively establishes itself as one of the best horror films of its kind to come around since Open Water.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
Matthew Turner

Impressively directed and genuinely suspenseful, this is a hugely entertaining thriller with a superb script and terrific performances from its three leads.

This minimalist thriller offers the same endurance-test nightmare as Open Water, only here the imperilled characters are marooned on a mountain, and wolves substitute for the sharks.

Little White Lies

Fiendish, sweaty and tense as hell. One to watch through the fingers.
