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 »

Birdemic and a bucket of frozen feces,
4 May 2014 | by dontaskerSee all my reviews

Apparently starting with global warming gives you free reign to rewrite all logic and science.

It is understandable that some mention the similarities between Blood Glacier and John Carpenter's The Thing, but other than an organism being released as ice melts and it forming "hybrids," there is little in common.

The Thing was a monster horror coupled with suspense and paranoia. Blood Glacier attempts to draw it's terror from a sudden loud noise and a GoPro camera in a blender.

The only saving grace is that Gerhard Liebmann seems to have potential as an actor. Unfortunately, even this becomes a moot point due to the laughable writing. His character's alcoholism was probably probably an improvisation given the fact that you'd have to be falling-down drunk to agree to be a part of the production.

Perhaps we should all take a more serious stance on global warming. The Day After Tomorrow, Birdemic, Blood Glacier... all would have never been made if only we had cut back on CO2 emissions.
