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), a disastrous turn of events leaves the 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

Good storyline but...
19 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Could really use a remake...Original needed more effort..I agree with a earlier review of exceedingly dull cinematography for such a beautiful and dramatic place( a winter shot of the Seward range near Cold River would have been nice!)..pretty dull writing as well ...I will say in the age of email, Wiki and Google a producer and director can easily find and add better and more accurate detail (i.e. the canoe is actually an Adirondack Guide Boat ..a beautiful boat, and native to that region of the Adirondacks) ..Could have integrated some the of more colorful hermits and guides of the Adirondacks too but I did enjoy it was shot on location in an area I know well!
