Blood Glacier (2013)

Written by: Benjamin Hessler

Directed by: Marvin Kren

I don’t want to lead anyone astray on what this film is about. Just from reading the plot before I watched it, I gathered that it could be labeled as eco horror, which for the most part, I guess it is. Here we go though, putting labels on stuff, when all the old classic throwback horror from the 1950’s of mutated whatevers caused by radiation or some other ecological sin man created was just a scary movie. That’s how I prefer to look at it.

This is an Austrian film, and it takes place at a remote mountain research station in the Swiss Alps. There’s »

New Blood Glacier Poster Is Suitably Bloody

7 May 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This past Friday marked the VOD release of Rammbock director Marvin Kren's Blood Glacier (review), and on tap for you today is a brand new poster for the flick, which is covered in the red stuff.

Check it out, courtesy of our friends over on Badass Digest!

Kren's new film stars Michael Fuith, Edita Malovcic, and Brigitte Kren.

Synopsis

Janek is a technician on a climate observation station high up in the Alps. He is a loner; the regularly changing scientists who share the rocky idyll with him are just tolerated by him. Making things more difficult is the approaching visit of the environment minister, which brings rivalries at the station to the boil.

So everyone involved is grateful when their barren routine is interrupted by a strange discovery. A red liquid pours from a nearby glacier, melted free from the ice crust shrinking with climate change. This “glacier »

New Trailer for Blood Glacier

3 April 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following The Station‘s screening at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, IFC Midnight acquired the movie and is bringing it to theaters in May under the title “Blood Glacier.”

“At a remote weather research station in the German Alps, three scientists and a technician monitor and study the climate and the ramifications of rapid weather changes on our world. On the eve of a visit by an important government minister, they discover that a rapidly retreating glacier has begun to leak a strange red liquid. The mysterious compound seems to be affecting local wildlife at a genetic level, and soon it will be up to reclusive technician Janek (Gerhard Liebmann) to defend the group from the biological monstrosities growing just beyond the walls of their tiny outpost.”

Directed by Marvin Kren, Blood Glacier stars Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Hille Beseler, Peter Knaack, Felix Römer, and Brigitte Kren. It »

Review: Blood Glacier

8 February 2014 7:20 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Ever wondered what would happen if you crossed a wasp with a crow? No, I hadn’t either until Blood Glacier drifted onto my radar, but I’m glad I found out as this is one entertaining little movie. Pitched as a kind of spiritual successor to John Carpenter’s The Thing, the movie formally known as The Station doesn’t quite step into those very large shoes, but it more than holds its own in the horror film stakes.

There are some similarities to Carpenter’s movie, with Blood Glacier being set in a remote outpost of the German Alps, and scientists discovering something in the ice that induces all kinds of weird and wonderful mutations in the local wildlife, and inevitably the humans too, but it’s more of a second cousin than an heir, and an overseas one at that, with the dialogue being in German.

Blood Glacier DVD Review

19 January 2014 3:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Marvin Kren.

Starring: Gerhard LiebmannEdita MalovcicBrigitte KrenHille Beseler and Peter Knaack.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 98 minutes

Synopsis: Scientists working in the German Alps discover that a glacier is leaking a liquid that appears to be affecting local wildlife.

While the cover art of Marvin Kren’s sci-fi horror pricked up my ears with the claim that it’s reminiscent to John Carpenter’s paranoia-fuelled masterpiece The Thing, I feel it’s probably a genre film closer in tone and plot of Peter Hyams’ unmitigated disaster A Sound Of Thunder (which was based on the classic short story by Ray Bradbury). That’s not say Blood Glacier (or The Station as it is known in its German homeland) should be put in the same woeful bracket. Hell, no! Kren’s film is tense, taut and at times terrifically acted. Liebmann especially excels as the self-destructive Janek, unable to »

‘Blood Glacier’ DVD Review

13 January 2014 6:21 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Hille Beseler, Brigitte Kren, Peter Knaac | Written by Benjamin Hessler | Directed by Marvin Kren

[Nb: I originally saw this movie under its original title The Station at the Frightfest 2013 All-Nighter. Worried that my original review was clouded by my somnambulic state I thought I'd give the film another go in the comfort of my own living room. Turns out my thoughts hadn't changed one iota. So with that in mind her's a reposting of my review of what has now been retitled Blood Glacier]

Rammbock director Marvin Kren turns his hand to an ecological themed monster-movie that sees a group of technicians and scientists at an alpine research station discover a glacier of blood high in the mountains. Testing the red liquid oozing from the ice, they discover a new alien organism with the astonishing capability of transforming the local wildlife into horrific hybrids and monster mutations. With the Minister of the Environment hiking to the station for an official visit, many frightening questions must be answered if the bickering team are to survive and cope with the giant wood lice, the beetle-foxes, crossbred flying predators and much, much worse.

It’s hard to believe that Blood Glacier is actually Kren’s feature-film debut. 2010′s Rammbock was such a cause-celebre that it can be easy »
