Storyline

Based on the novel Winterkill, by William Judson, Cold River is the story of an Adirondack guide who takes his young daughter and step-son on a long camping trip in the fall of 1932. When winter strikes unexpectedly early (a natural phenomenon known as a 'winterkill' - so named because the animals are totally unprepared for a sudden, early winter, and many freeze or starve to death), he suffers a fatal heart attack, leaving his two children to find their own way home without food, or protection from the elements. Rated PG for mild violence and language. Written by John N. Daily

Rare little find
29 December 1999 | by (Selbyside - St. Paul, MN USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was kind of good, ruined by poor acting and the stupid kids. The locations, however, were lovely and well photographed. I don't know what else to say, except for the fact that you'll have to look pretty hard to find this film. I don't believe you can buy it any more, and nearly impossible to rent.
