Goofs

The operating base for the expedition is on a boat. But the boat is a river ferry, not a sea-going vessel. And Bhutan has four major river systems: the Drangme Chhu; the Puna Tsang Chhu, also called the Sankosh; the Wang Chhu; and the Amo Chhu. However, the vessel is not only a significantly larger ship than the modest sized ferry boats used on the rivers of Bhutan, but it is unlikely that any of the waterways in Bhutan could accommodate the vessel shown. The fittings visible on the ship make it clear that it is equipped for deep water operations (oceans or very large lakes). See more »

Intense High Adventure Epic
5 August 2015 | by Diane RuthSee 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.
