Goofs

After the helicopter pilot drops off the rescue climbers at the Advance Base Camp (listed at 20,500 feet), he is then supposed to lighten his load, refuel, and start searching above the rescue climbers. When the lead climber radios the pilot, the pilot says he is at 15,000 feet - well below the rescue climbers and the base camp. See more »

Intense High Adventure Epic
5 August 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Stunning visual effects and scenes of intense adventure highlight Sheldon Wilson's Killer Mountain. An exciting saga of mountain climbing and brutal survival, this is horror film with strong characters and a magnificent story to tell. Among the stunning vistas of mighty mountains stand a group of individuals called upon to meet the greatest challenges any group of intrepid explorers may have ever faced. Their skills and character are truly put to the test, especially when it becomes quite clear that it is not the mountain alone they are confronting. Haunting scenes of an icy hell, veiled in mystery and a dark terror, will keep audiences spellbound in this sterling adventure. Fine performances from a terrific cast add to the cinematic quality and give us people we really care about as they struggle to conquer the unknown. The influence of Everest and Howard Hawks' original The Thing are clearly seen throughout and the director's reverence for these sources is well integrated in the experience.
