Stylish hybrid of science-fiction/crime and neo-noir.
28 December 2014 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Dead Mountaineer's Hotel" is an effectively oneiric adaptation of a 1970 science fiction detective novel written by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky.Inspector Peter Glebsky goes to a small resort located in a secluded valley in the Alps to investigate murder case.He meets some bizarre hotel guests in Dead's Mountaineer's Hotel.Soon an avalanche blocks the entrance to the valley and one of the guests named Olaf mysteriously dies.Glebsky realizes that the guests are not who they appear to be.Very interesting and stylish hybrid of crime drama,science-fiction and neo-noir.The mood is very phantasmagorical and there is some impressive use of colors in the vein of "Suspiria".I enjoyed electro soundtrack of "Dead Mountaineer's Hotel" too.Often written comparisons to "Blade Runner" are quite thruthful.8 dead mountaineers out of 10.
