The idea is very interesting, but the pacing of the movie is so fucking slow it put me to sleep several times.
It's like they didn't know what they wanted to do with this movie. Bad writing, and bad directing. Don't waste your time.
I've watched this movie twice now, and I just can't understand why it got so little buzz and such a bland rating. It is scary, the scenery is beautiful and the acting and writing are honestly top-notch. It has a real The Thing vibe without being derivative, and they don't show too much of the monster (which is my usual complaint about low-budget horror). It has a spooky, original premise that I found really interesting, and the characters are fleshed out enough that their deaths really hit home. Not to be missed, a real hidden gem.
Decent movie, but often felt like a rip-off of The Thing. Depressing and bleak. And I'd like to see someone walk 90 miles through snow in a day and a half. A few of the characters I really liked.
surprisingly bad. it has parts that could show promise, but i came for cosmic horror and/or possible isolated what-is-in-the-woods/what-did-unearth-in-the-ruins type horror and left with forgettable actors and disappointment.
