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

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.

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.

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.
| Original Score: 3/4

A tidy little ghost story, with interesting characters, a captivating performance by up-and-comer Emily Blunt.

Wind Chill, for all its flaws, is an often spooky and imaginative ghost story that contains a genuine creepiness.

A moody, spooky tale, rendered with laudable economy.

Elevates familiar fright motifs to levels of shivery dismay.

Wind Chill doesn't advance the mechanics of the horror genre, but it gives audiences fed up with the Michael Bay School of Horror something of a breather.

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.

As clunky as it is emotionally unconvincing.

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

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

Promising elements never quite bind.

Could have worked, if only I had given a damn.

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

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.
