Goofs

The protagonist, a Brit, uses a Russian Mosin-Nagant military rifle he would have been unable to obtain at the time. It may have been used as a stand-in for the similarly looking British Lee-Metford rifle, a likely choice to equip someone in his position. See more »

Beautiful!
11 February 2018 | by FlowSee all my reviews

Wow! Have I been waiting for long to see something like this. Something different, better, something to entertain and not in that Hollywood style. And I got plenty of just that!

There is no point in trying to explain for too long, trust me when I say, this is one of the best horror movies out there, that don't rely on scares, on violence, but on beauty! From the great surroundings, to the creatures, the fort, everything falls in great. It was one of the best experiences I had in years.

Therefore of course I will highly recommend Cold Skin, because it does nothing more than to intrigue and deliver. And by the end of it, you will even feel the cold!

Cheers!
