Frost left me cold
16 August 2014 | by russjohnson-1See all my reviews

Was bored and surfing Netflix, saw this film, put it on and, by the end, really wished i hadn't. Not psychologically scary, no plot to speak of and the 'story' (such as it is) moves slower than the earth's tectonic plates. Which is a shame because, given the sheer majesty and beauty of the place they were filming in, it's a opportunity to create something truly thrilling that's been lost. The production values are very good unlike most 'found footage' stories i've seen but nothing can really rescue it from becoming a re-hash of the same idea and a poorly executed editing/pacing. I can only assume that the director had overdosed on Zanex.
