This movie is about a group of people who are on the way to a resort in a van when all of a sudden they crash as a result of a mysterious woman on the road. They are helped by a local named Jack (Ving Rhames) and taken to his house before a storm sets in. 100 years ago there was a family killed in the same house. After they get there, Bill McCormick (Val Kilmer) dies mysteriously and they all start seeing things that can only be described as ghosts. Then things take a turn for the worst. Written by

Well it's title certainly has nothing to do with the temperature.
First of all I read the cast listing with Val Kilmer, Ving Rhames & Luke Goss I got very interested & had a certain expectation to what I was about to see in this film. I can't understand how they managed to wrangle these guys into this boring thriller, I just don't get it. As the movie goes there really isn't very much to say, the plot is as thin as the paper the screenplay was written on. It begins with all of our cast(minus Ving) rolling down the highway in what seems to be a trip for college students, with Val Kilmer appearing as a professor of some sort seaming to be the leader of the group accompanied by his wife, it's not made clear what the whole trip was about probably due to the fact that it all means nothing due to the van crashing into a tree after a shadow of a girl appears. Then they build up that a MASSIVE storm is approaching & they wind up stranded at Ving's place.Everything that happens next was to me kind of boring, not very exciting and overall not that entertaining. They had such talent to work with & they wasted the potential of that with a bad script & limited character development. Rhames character was by far the best, without him the film would sink faster than the titanic, he holds that certain kind of unsettling conviction that worked well in his character, but even he cannot save the film. When the twist was revealed it was somewhat surprising, but nothing to write home about or text your friends about. 5/10
I don't recommending paying to see this film in any form whatsoever.
