User Reviews

Unnecessarily confusing
6 April 2011 | by BakuryuuTyrannoSee all my reviews

Early on, one of the regular crewmen of the drilling facility comments on how surprisingly young the recently-arrived workers are.

One replies that the worker isn't that young himself. As opposed to being "that old" himself which would make sense in the context of the previous sentence. Great coherency there.

Later, after disregarding the possibility of killer trilobites on the station, that same girl suggests some DNA sample was from "a pre- millipede or a trilobite or something". Perhaps there was no script, at least not a script containing actual dialogue, and the actors ad-libbed but couldn't hear each other clearly.

The lead man meanwhile has history in oil drilling. This trait is so poorly established it seems he's getting into the spirit of oil drilling (his work colleagues consist of older men)and nothing more.

Everything that happens gives the feel the story happens over a few days minimum, yet supposedly happened within hours. The main characters, newly arrived on a long flight, at no point even appear tired. Yeah, "Deep Freeze" shouldn't be watched by those who value coherency...

Not much gore either because when attacked, victims' lives apparently flash before their eyes although no new footage was shot meaning it consists of flashes of previous scenes.

The scariest part? Most horror films focusing on oil workers are actually worse!
