quietearth [Film Festival 12.22.09] movie trailer news thriller drama

"Three skiers are stranded on a chairlift and forced to make life-or-death choices that prove more perilous than staying put and freezing to death." That's the lean premise of Adam Green's (Spiral, Hatchet)new chiller (excuse the bad pun please) premiering at this year's Sundance.

When I first heard about this I thought "boring!" and after watching the trailer, I'm still not convinced. But I liked Spiral, so I'll definitely watch it.

On a chilly winter night, three skiers huddle together on a chairlift, confused as to why their ride to the summit suddenly stops. The sting of the icy wind worsens when the floodlights power down, leaving them stranded in the dark. As they wait for help, the reality of the nightmare hits them.

The ski resort has just closed, abandoning the group stranded high above the mountain slopes in an oncoming snow storm. With ominous howls echoing through the surrounding woods, they will need to make some tough decisions in order to survive. Writer/director Adam Green skillfully guides this real-world thriller, pushing three college students to confront their natural fears of the dark, cold, heights, and beyond, to see how far a human is willing to go to survive.

Looks like it would make a good short film. But 90 minutes? I hope this works - at least it's original.

Hard to say if the film will be any good, but the trailer was really well done. Built the situation and suspense up nicely.
