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

Did You Know?


The first time anyone ever saw Frozen was at Ain't It Cool News' Buttnumbathon event in Austin, TX in December of 2009. It was a surprise screening where Frozen played alongside Shutter Island, The Lovely Bones, and Avatar. One woman in the audience fainted and was carried out after watching Kevin Zegers' character jump from the lift to the ice fifty feet below. See more »


Ski resorts send "liftees" to inspect the lifts at the end of every shift to prevent this very scenario from happening. See more »


[first lines]
Joe Lynch: I don't see her.
Dan Walker: The shift changes. Just give it a couple of minutes.
Parker O'Neil: Are you sure about this?
Dan Walker: Yeah yeah, works all the time. Besides, this lady loves Lynch. Loves him.

User Reviews

enjoyable with a real sense of terror
24 March 2011 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The director (whom I didn't know before this movie) gets to generate an authentic tension from a real suspense story: the panic gripping the trio is absolutely palpable, although the strong implausibility of no one having a cellphone is not that believable. The terror due to their predicament mounts minute by minute and is made genuine by showing a harsh environment and by imposing tension on each of the characters. The cast is not famous at all but the way the story is set and the three personalities are described keeps attention and tension high and strong. I recommend it also for the wonderful location (movie shot in Utah's Rockies).
