Based on Nebraska Couple
29 November 2008 | by (Dallas Texas) – See all my reviews

I believe this movie is based on the Nebraska couple, Mike Wamsley and Janelle Hornickel. I first saw their story on Dateline or 48 Hourse, one of those shows. Then I rented this movie, titled as Dead of Winter, and started to realize it was following the same storyline of that real life Nebraska couple. I can't guarantee this is the story that McNamara based his film on but it sure seems to be. Anyway, really unfortunate situation those two kids got themselves into.

Overall I think the movie pretty good. Some of the interior shots, especially the scene where Kevin talks to Tiffany's father, were pretty hot and washed out. The night stuff was done well and the snow backdrop at night was effective. I think the pacing is good and with so many bad horror or thriller indies out there, this one is above those no question. If nothing else, it's worth watching for the story and what happened to these kids.
