Directed by Jeff Renfroe
In an icy post-apocalyptic future, a gang of cannibals attack a group of survivors and put the future of the human race in danger. Laurence Fishburne (THE MATRIX) and Bill Paxton (ALIENS) live in one of the last remaining colonies in the wintery world. But when a distress signal sends them to a nearby colony, they learn they've been lured there for the cannibal gang's supper. Now it's a race against time and the elements to ensure mankind's survival. Jeff Renfroe's gripping sci-fi horror should appeal to fans of the ALIEN films, PITCH BLACK and SNOWPIERCER.

Really enjoyed that, stressful at times due to the ‘will they get away’ moments!!
A solid effort but nothing above average
Eh. Looked like it was building up to something scary, then never fully delivered, especially in the final scenes. A bit disappointed. Characterization is a bit weak as well. Some scenes are very exciting though, and it never really drags. Just kind of average.
Decent little production greatly benefits by the presence of Fishburne and the late lamented Paxton in an uncharacteristic villain role. First two acts are more interesting than the third, which recycles routine post-apocalyptic action tropes in predictable fashion. But overall, it's not a waste of 95 minutes.
I saw it on Sci-Fi last year and it is one of my favorites. 2 of the greatest actors in one film. I loved it.
