Young couple Mike and Emma (Brit Morgan, Seth David Mitchell) find themselves trapped in the middle of the forest during a camping trip as a result of a snowmobile crash. With freezing temperatures and a mysterious figure hovering near their campsite, their grip on reality slowly descends into madness.
Twenty minutes into the film, there’s no reason not to think that it will be just as thrilling and scary as they promote it to be. The tension builds well throughout the first half and creatively sets us up for what appears to be a very entertaining flick. Nothing major happens in terms of plot movement, but we do get the feeling that something sinister is hiding nearby.
Soon after they realize that they’re trapped in the middle of the forest with a broken snowmobile, panic sets in. Then when Emma finds Mike dead outside their tent, things take a much more frightening turn. From that point on, a lot of things happen that really don’t make sense, and clearly aren’t supposed to. But some of it seems unnecessarily emphasized as if to enforce the fact that we shouldn’t understand what’s happening. It becomes a little frustrating at times.
The ending is pretty twisted, but it does has a hint of familiarity which makes it less shocking than perhaps it should have been.
The Frozen is a pretty good mystery, thriller, horror. Brit Morgan carries most of the film on her shoulders and does so extremely well.
