We all do it, don’t we? When the chairlift stops we look down and declare whether we would, or wouldn’t, jump from there. And for anybody who has ever seen Frozen, I’m sure an extended chairlift stoppage always turns to discussing it and how un/realistic it is.
Three skiers stranded on a chairlift are forced to make life-or-death choices, which prove more perilous than staying put and freezing to death.
This horror/thriller movie depicts the very worst that could happen if your worst skiing nightmare comes true – the lift stops, you’re still on it, and it doesn’t restart. Oh, and it also happens to be the last chair of the day, on a Friday, at a resort that doesn’t open weekends. Faced with the potential of a weekend sat on a freezing cold chairlift, what would you do?
The movie is laughable, but fun to watch and always good to bring up next time you’re on a lift that stops if you want to scare your companions. Frozen was filmed at Snowbasin near Ogden, Utah, in February 2009.
While playing at Sundance, the film caused quite a stir with numerous faintings reported from audience members that could not handle the tension of the film. One such fainting happened at the Tower Theater in Salt Lake City – Wikipedia
Don’t confuse it with another movie called ‘Frozen’, it’ll probably give your Elsa loving kids nightmares for the rest of their lives. There’s no ‘Let it Go’ here… well, actually there is, just not the song.
Stuck at home with nothing to do and missing skiing? Definitely give this movie a watch.
