Movie Info

Robert Saunders (Dylan McDermott), a New York City mechanic is knocked unconscious at his birthday dinner and wakes up to find himself locked inside the restaurant's walk-in freezer. But why he's there - and how he'll survive - will reveal a chilling nightmare of mistaken identity, the Russian mob, a missing $8 million, and a wounded cop (Peter Facinelli) who may hold the key it all. The temperature is dropping. The fear is growing. And for a man caught between frozen death and vicious thugs, what happens next may lead to the most cold-blooded twist of all.(c) Anchor Bay

Critic Reviews for Freezer

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

A mediocre work built on a flimsy, nonsensical premise that squanders its modest potential with a cornucopia of bad plot twists.

Top Critic

An economical yet expansive thriller.

January 16, 2014 | Full Review…

McDermott does his best to make Robert a fearless, wisecracking smart-ass in the early Bruce Willis mold, but he's defeated by a script so dopey that its best stab at a witticism is "Baby, I wouldn't give you the ice off my eyebrows."

January 30, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Pardon the obvious pun, but as a thriller, Freezer left me cold.

January 18, 2014 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

No one involved with the making of this movie should be allowed to work again.

January 16, 2014 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

McDermott having a grand old time here as a Willis-style wiseass, while the production organizes levels of punishment for the leading man, creating a passably entertaining B-movie.

Audience Reviews for Freezer


I used to work in freezers much colder than this for much longer periods of time and came out fine. Clearly our protagonist is a bit of a softy. That said, I found Freezer surprisingly enjoyable. To be fair, the past few movies in a row I've seen have all been unequivocally horrendous, so maybe it was just "less bad" as opposed to "good". But I did find myself entertained this mostly-predictable mystery and its wise-crackin' lead. It managed to be more interesting in a fifteen foot fridge than a lot of films I've seen recently managed to be across the whole bloody planet..

A fresh, smart and engaging first-rate thriller. It's chilling a chilling and wickedly cool thrill-ride. An intense and sharply crafted film that has some twisted turns, suspense, humor and solid performances. It keeps the story fast-paced and held within a solid running time. It's atmosphere is cold, mysterious, surprisingly funny and keeps you interested and compelled. A hard-edged and exciting edge of your seat thrill to watch with a chilling twist or two you wont see coming. Dylan McDermott is excellent, he has fun with his characters humor, sharp wit and punishment. Peter Facinelli is terrific. A surprise of a film that is thrilling and very entertaining.
