Alaska Trooper Jack Holcombe believes Robert Hansen is a serial killer who abducts young girls, tortures and sexually assaults them, then kills them. But Holcombe doesn't have enough evidence to get a search warrant for Hansen's premises. Holcombe knows that one victim, Cyndy Paulsen, somehow survived, so he decides to seek her help, but he finds that she's now a junkie with trust issues. Holcombe has to earn her trust; meanwhile, Hansen is still hunting and killing girls. Written by

We'll look these over, get back to you in a few days.
You know, he stalks them like his next trophy animal, he rapes them and kills them. He is probably doing it right now. We don't have a few days!

'Frozen Ground' undeniably has promising storyline because of it's based on true story factor. It makes audience (who doesn't know the tragedy) curious of what happens next although from the start we already know who's the killer. Scott Parker as director has succeeded to pack this low-budget movie into something's still enjoyable to watch. Also some familiar actors seems helpful to lift this movie. Cage and Cusack act convincingly as a cop and a calm mental disorder killer. Unfortunately, 'Frozen Ground' feels repeatable from other serial killer movie that could bored fans of this kind of genre. Overall, 'Frozen Ground' is a satisfying movie and above average of crime thriller. The recognizable cast somehow increases tense in this movie. I think it's too good for DVD's direct though.
