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 »
This flick, I ALMOST rented from iTunes, but something told me: "Wait..." I'm glad I listened to my inner critic...so even though I slated this baby for a Saturday Night B thriller, it did itself in two ways: It Excelled and it Bombed at the same time.
The set-up for the 'horror drama' is so predictable and derivative of 'The Thing' that it made me gag. Nevermind the side complaint that considering it about a 'Glacier' I didn't see all that much snow...nor did anyone even give the impression that it was cold at any time during the movie.
Next-- they dubbed this movie. They really, REALLY should have gone with subtitles. But because they went with dubbing, by the time I heard "Don't eat bananas while you're crying!" I could only double over with hysterics. For the life of me, I don't know WHERE that line came from or what the script writer was thinking...but that line is Immortal in my view now.
The Characters...they were just doomed. They were all going to die. They all DESERVED to die. And their Deaths had nothing to do with the Plot. They just deserved death on principle. And then the Director and the Script Writers deserved to spill blood on the rocks alongside them for good measure.
The only person who I liked and who was spared was the Minister: She was a battle-axe of a woman. And evidently most Austrian women are battle-axes, because all the men were wimps or alcoholics in this movie.
The screaming was good. It's ironic, because there was no tension or suspense by this point. It was just non-stop screaming and mayhem and I couldn't STOP LAUGHING...because this was NOT the intent of the Movie!!! Oh...and the Monsters were done pretty well. That's what the 4 stars are for.
Good Monsters. Many Screams. Hysterical Dubbing.
Watch this mess with Friends, Beer and Sarcasm on a Saturday Night.
