Critics Consensus

The Last Winter creatively and effectively uses horror tactics -- fear, tension, anticipation, and just enough gore -- to shock, but never repulse, its audience.

  • 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.

    Fessenden has crafted a horror film that relies on the setting and atmosphere to create all the tension. The film is quite intent on playing it out slowly and not providing much in the way of a explanation. The cast is great and the horror elements are unsettling but the pacing is way too slow. The film has that open ended conclusion that is quite over the top and never gives you any closure which is a shame. The film works best when it is at the station and once they move away the tension falls apart. 31-03-2018.

    A strange, yet suspenseful flick.

    Supernatural horror with an in-your-face environmental message at its heart. It's all about a crew of oil workers camped in the snowy Alaskan landscape who start to experience odd occurances linked to an oil well. Really quite disappointed with this overall, it didn't turn out to be as creepy or scary as it could have been and it's too damn slow. It does develop a good atmosphere and has one good scare, but the film doesn't really come to life until the 50 minute mark. It had the potential to be a lot better but it was still ok.
