Suspended Animation (2003)


Critic Consensus: Suspended Animation offers some gory good fun for genre fans, even if the end results don't quite transcend their cheerfully shallow roots.

Movie Info

Hollywood animator Tom Kempton gets lost during a trip in the hills of Northern Michigan, but finds shelter in an isolated cabin owned by a pair of sisters who have a penchant for cannibalism. What started out as a relaxing getaway, becomes a waking nightmare when Tom finds himself at the hands the two psychotic sisters who plan to make him their next victim. A last minute rescue leaves both sisters presumably dead and Tom narrowly escaping with his life. Upon his return to Hollywood, however, Tom develops an unhealthy obsession with one of his captors that ultimately threatens the life and welfare of his family.

Critic Reviews for Suspended Animation

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (8)

Since the movie's sensibility ranges from the preposterous to the absurd, there are few genuine frights.

Nov 1, 2003 | Rating: 2/4

A sturdy, well-made piece that never quite overcomes its structural flaws.

Oct 30, 2003 | Rating: 3/5

The devil -- and the delight -- here is in the detours.

Oct 30, 2003 | Full Review…

It has pace and variety and, best of all, it consistently has the courage of its imaginative and daring screenplay.

Oct 30, 2003 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Feels a lot like two different Hancock jobs stitched together.

Oct 30, 2003 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Describing what's bad about this movie is like describing what's orange about an orange, but suffice it to say that the best performance is given by a crucified raccoon.
