AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


The premise was quite imaginative and provides a great backdrop for the suspense that ensues.  Kudos to the filmmakers for being forward thinking enough to plug most, if not quite all the holes that are typically associated with films like these.

Writing / Production:         

A very admirable effort considering that this film must have been shot on a very modest budget.  The suspense is quite captivating and the pace is perfect most of the time which made "Frozen" quite entertaining.


From the beginning it is obvious that the performances in the film would be second rate at best.  I will however admit that as the film progresses the chemistry and quality of the acting gets considerably better though it never reaches excellence. 


A lot of this movie's appeal stems from the hard work of the filmmakers to come up with a scenario for their thriller that hadn't been used.


I admit that a few minutes into "Frozen" I was ready to write it off as another B movie that could not deliver on the promise of its plot.  Fortunately the film progressively improved until I was on the edge of my seat with suspense.  Check it out and if the bad acting makes you hate the characters you can always cheer for the wolves.
