Storyline

In the dead of winter, Winona returns to her hometown for a much-needed break from her stressful lifestyle, but the relaxing vacation quickly turns into a frantic fight for survival. After running into some old friends at a local bar, the group returns to Winona's cabin to continue their reunion, but soon find themselves face-to-face with death. Disguised behind an icy mask, a killer is lurking and will not stop until there are no survivors. Blood Runs Cold is a frostbitten slasher that turns the snow red with gore.

A film of two halves
18 June 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

BLOOD RUNS COLD is an ultra low budget Swedish slasher flick, shot in English and made on an apparent budget of just $5000. That it looks as good as films made for ten or even a hundred times the budget is testament to the skill of the director and production team. Still, it's a pity that the quality of the writing doesn't match the quality of the film-making, as this turns out to be a predictable movie in the extreme in terms of its non-existent storyline.

It's also a film of two halves, with the first half by far the worst. Not much happens here, other than setting up an uninteresting heroine and various supporting characters who are little more than fodder for the killer. The good news is that things pick up - considerably - in the second half, which is a straightforward action-packed slasher flick with some remarkably gory death scenes and some fun stalk 'n' slash moments. The gore effects are very well done on the budget and the narrative as a whole is relatively enjoyable if you like slasher films. Just a shame that the first half was so slow.
