Storyline

At Mount Holliston, snowboarders Dan Walker, his girlfriend Parker O'Neil and his best friend Joe Lynch don't have enough money to buy lift tickets. Parker bribes Jason, a lift-worker, with one hundred dollars. When the system is nearing closure, they force Jason to let them have one last pass. However, Jason needs to resolve a problem and his colleague misunderstands his instructions and stops the lift. The trio of skier and snowboarders gets stranded on the chairlift near the top of the mountain. When they see that the lights of the ski resort had been turned off, they need to make a choice: leave the chairlift or freeze to death. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

There is a giant "Newbury Comics" billboard at the base of the mountain to help sell that the film takes place in New England. It is also a reference to Adam Green's first film Hatchet (2006) which featured the comic/DVD/music store's "tooth face" logo on lead actor 'Joel David Moore''s T-shirt. See more »

Goofs

The snowstorm during the first night on the lift is depicted as being heavy enough to bury the equipment the protagonists threw down to the ground, but subsequent establishing shots of the ski resort show the mountain covered in tracks in the snow left behind by skiers and boarders previously.

Brutal, but Terrific
10 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, brutal, like a lost Stephen King short story from the seventies, one of those with a small cast of characters that keeps getting smaller. You cross your fingers and just hope the ones you're rooting for survive to the end.

And terrific. The cast totally sells a script that could have either gone over the top into "Cliffhanger" territory or become sentimental, and ditto for the sparse direction. Nothing is wasted, everything works, and you are on the edge of your seat the whole time despite the almost non-existent plot. The script is a textbook example of taking a compelling hook and playing it out to its conclusion no matter the cost.

The perfect film to watch in the dead of winter, with all the lights on and - most importantly - a fire in the fireplace. Even then... you still may not be all that glad your character made it to the last page.
