5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S A BOSH! 3 Jun 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Jack (Edward Furlong) has writer's block. His agent suggests he lock himself up in a freezer for 5 days. In northern rural America, he meets Penny (Kristin Booth) who has just the place. Penny is very likeable. She has the "Fargo" accent and laughs at her own jokes with a snort. She is single and says things like, "You can make anything good with ketchup, just not a marriage." She aspires to be an actress or a screenwriter, while she cares for her mute son.

Once Jack is locked up in a room in a meat processing factory. The movie then becomes the account of his writing. But don't let this deter you from watching this film. Michael Berryman, the face of "These Hills Have Eyes" and an underrated actor becomes an unsavory character in the script. The film bounces back and forth from the script to Jack's imprisonment which is becoming more unbearable as the plot twists. Jack incorporates his surroundings and characters he meets into the story.

At some point you have to ask yourself, "Is there a limit on plot twists before the movie becomes a BOSH?" This one approaches that number. In some ways this film reminded me of "Misery" i.e. a writer being tortured to write.

I enjoyed the ending...at least I think that was the ending. Good indie thriller, for those who like twists. Most of the horror is generated in what we know to be a fictional story.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, no sex, no nudity (woman bra/panties) 4 1/2 stars

1.0 out of 5 stars "The End" Didn't Come Soon Enough.. 19 April 2013
By WILLIAM WOOD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I see this movie is highly rated by other reviewers but Below Zero is a complete dud in my own opinion. It took much effort to sit through this film to the very end. There are only five characters throughout the entire movie with only four of them having major roles. Supposedly based on a true story, Jack is a screenwriter who suffers from writer's block. The story begins with "Jack the Hack" being picked up beside the road by a young lady, and her young boy who never utters a word in the whole movie. She has been paid by Jacks agent to lock him inside a meat cooler for five days as a way to inspire him to finish his latest book.

The annoyingly lame humor at the beginning of the story was a good indicator for what the rest of it turned out to be. In the end, I wish I'd followed my initial instinct and turned this one off. Jacks imagination runs wild while he's locked up but he does eventually leave. This horror film wasn't horrific at all, aside from the fact that I wasted an hour and a half of my life watching it. Hopefully you'll find more enjoyment in this movie than I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Indie Thriller 27 Aug 2012
By Chris Coffel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
You're a writer, but you can't write. You've hit a wall. You have writer's block. So what do you do? Jack, a successful screenwriter has an interesting idea - method writing. It works for actors, so why wouldn't it work with writers?

To give this a try, Jack arranges to have himself locked in a remote meat cooler with just his imagination to inspire. The line between fiction and reality, however, quickly blur in the new thriller, Below Zero.

Edward Furlong plays Jack, the young, hot shot writer riding off the success of his one previous film, which we learn wasn't even very good in the first place. Jack's agent is the one that sets it up to have Jack locked in a meat cooler for five days to finish his script, if he doesn't, the agency will drop him.

Immediately, Jack regrets this decision.

From there the story takes on a multitude of twists and turns as Jack tries to write his script while facing his own demons. The setup is all I will give you, as anything more will take away from the enjoyment and spoil the film for you.

I have to point out I saw this film two times and I walked away from the second viewing appreciating the film much more. My first viewing was at the Phoenix Film Festival in which it was my seventh movie of the day. At that point I was pretty out of it and it was hard for me to follow. My second viewing was at the Arizona International Film Festival and it was my first film of the day and I think that made a world of difference.

The pacing worked better, the switching from what was real and what wasn't, it was all made clearer on that second viewing. I think this was more a result of seeing the film fresh rather than just seeing it a second time.

The script was written by Signe Olynyk, who actually did lock herself in the very meat cooler used in the film to write the script, did a terrific job of having the story weave in and out of fiction and reality. She left the audience guessing while never letting it get confusing. Plus she tosses in jokes and references that writers everywhere will be able to relate with.

Below Zero is a fantastic, dark and eerie thriller. Furlong turns in what I consider to be the performance of his career and horror favorite Michael Berryman is creepy as always in a great supporting role. If you want a horror film that makes you think with a cold and harsh feel, Below Zero is the film for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original horror with plenty of twists and turns! 23 Aug 2012
By horrorfan84 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a very smart and original horror film that keeps you at the edge of your seat. The fractured narrative works really well, ensuring that your brain is engaged throughout. Fans of intelligent horror will appreciate this film, and there is also plenty of great visual gore and unexpected scares. As a horror writer I found the film inspiring as well as entertaining. Also great to see Edward Furlong shine in this - the role suits him perfectly - very smart casting. Definitely one to watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tense, smart, and frightening 24 Aug 2012
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie has no wasted lines or scenes - each moment is crafted to move the plot forward and to up the creepiness factor. Michael Berryman kicks butt in a role that has amazing breadth and depth. Long after watching the movie, I have not yet found a flaw in its internal logic (how many movies can you say that about?), and am looking forward to getting my copy in the mail. A must-see.
