Director Adam Green (Hatchet, Spiral) takes the helm for this relentlessly tense tale of three snowboarders who must fight for their lives in the freezing cold after getting stranded on a ski lift. As the trio rides up the mountain in preparation for their final run of the day, the night lights suddenly go dark, and the lift chairs grind to a sudden halt. Realizing that the resort will be closed until the following weekend, the three friends decide to take their fate into their own hands, and find their way down to terra firma. Once they do, they realize that hypothermia isn't the only thing they have to fear. Shawn Ashmore, Kevin Zegers, and Emma Bell star in the film. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I was running out of movies to watch and decided to give this a shot. This movie isn't your typical horror flick since everything in this movie could actually happen. Starts off normal for the first 30 minutes and then for the next hour, 3 friends attempt to survive after getting stuck on a ski lift. Needless to say, things do not end well for all of them and don't eat pizza while watching. Some might find the movie slow and boring, however if you give it a chance and make it past the gross parts, you may never again get on a ski lift. I can't say much more without ruining the movie for you.
This movie had a lot of potential to be great but failed to achieve so. I dont know why they always make the characters incredibly dumb with no common sense. There were numerous situations in the movie that just made you angry on how stupid these characters handled themselves. Worth renting but not buying.
