Trivia

The iconic line, "Stop eating that banana while you're crying," was actually not originally planned for the movie. The actor had simply been eating a banana on set and another had jokingly yelled at them for eating it. The directors had happened to see this interaction, and decided to incorporate it into the movie. See more »

Carpenter? Not that good.
11 June 2014 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

Blood Glacier is a German movie, thus, the interest is bigger, the expectations lower and the tolerance higher! At least in my case, as a huge horror fan, I take them from where I find them: Hollywood must always prove why they call them self top producers, Asian cinema will have to provide the ghosts and twists, European ones are starting to catch up (especially from North and Spain that offers great thrillers, a step behind horror, but a small one) and South Americans at their beginning!

Now let's talk about this one for instance: the story is good, the acting great, the atmosphere very chilly, the monsters are bad, the kills are usually dumb, the plot becomes quite predictable especially towards the very ending. Would I call it a flop or a step up from your usual "in a deserted place" horror? Neither, as it fits just perfectly in the middle, thus, it got a 6 from me, just so I'll encourage Germans to continue their work. You can clearly see that they put heart in their efforts, they search for the best actors, they try to build up a good tension, but probably cause of the lack of experience, they sometimes forget how to keep things straight.

So all in all, for a cold late night, or one with a nice storm outside, this one will do the trick. You will feel the actors, their pain, despair and fear. Blood Glacier is a good add-on for one horror fan who wants to catch them all.

Cheers!
