Storyline

The American oil company North Corporation is building an ice road to explore the remote Northern Arctic National Wildlife Refuge seeking oil. The independent environmentalists together with the base leader, Ed Pollack, reach an agreement with the government, approving procedures and reports of the operation. When a team member is found dead naked on the snow, the environmentalist James Hoffman suspects that gases may have been accidentally released from the drill site provoking hallucinations and insanity in the group. After a second fatal incident, he convinces Ed to travel with the team to a hospital for examination, however, people continue to die. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Marketing Video: Alaska. Vast wilderness of the north. Land of great natural beauty and diversity. This is rugged county, land of black gold. Alaska's North Slope has been producing oil out of Prudhoe Bay since 1968, delivering to refineries and ports 800 miles to the south through the great Trans-Alaskan pipeline. But another northern region known as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge has remained untapped. Only once have prospectors gained access to this barren landscape. In 1986, KIK ...

Coolly different horror. . .Spooky.
2 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

The setting is bleak, white and, of course, isolated. A remote drilling station with company employees waiting things out. Then something starts happening.

Another reviewer pegged it nicely as a mix of "The Shining" with a little bit of 'The Thing" and you have a flavor of what this movie is like.

What's nice is that there isn't the usual pot boiler about some secret military base, or some evil corporate shenanigans. The characters are the normal sorts of people who actually would work in this kind of remote, exploratory/drilling outpost. And I especially like the music/camera work they did in one segment. . .visually lyrical.

And the 'Whatever it is"? I still don't have the darnedest idea!! That's what makes this movie a nice horror treat. Yes, there's a global warming message in there-- but this isn't an environmentalist groupie movie trying to hit you over the head. Global warming is just one of the ingredients.

But overall. . .spooky.
