Product Description

Psychological horror. During Christmas break, a young college student (Emily Blunt) who has just broken up with her boyfriend is seeking a lift home for the holidays. Upon checking the student 'ride board' she sees that there is a boy (Ashton Holmes) offering a ride in her direction and she decides to take it. Racing to beat a severe winter storm, the two young travellers take a shortcut down a remote country road, only to find themselves forced into a snow bank by a mysterious oncoming vehicle that seems to be playing a game of chicken. Over the long, cold night that ensues, an intense relationship develops between the pair as they slowly realise that there is more to fear than just freezing to death...

4.0 out of 5 stars BULLSEYE! No gore, lots of scares. 12 July 2008
Format:DVD
Wind Chill is a surprise gem; I picked it up cheap, expecting it to be yet another low budget, pretentious horror movie with a female model thrown in for sex appeal... but, like many it appears, I was pleasantly surprised.

Wind Chill has accomplished what many others have failed. It's taken the worn-out 'never-ending road' genre, and turned it into a really good little fright flick.

For a few years now, the film industry has seemed to believe that blood and gore is the way forward. Wind Chill perfectly proves that blood and gore is not what makes a good, scary film.

Wind Chill is a lot more frightening than things like Halloween in my opinion. The jumps are well timed, the scares are properly thought through, the acting is passable and the direction seems competent enough. All this tied together with a provocative circular plot: and you've got yourself a great little thriller.

This is one of the most brooding and atmospheric films I've seen, and a total breath of fresh air for horror fans. Make sure you see Wind Chill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made me Jump out of My Seat 22 July 2009
Format:DVD
Although this seemed to start off a little slowly, it did pick up pace and became a bit of a nailbiter. There was one part though that really made me jump, but I'm not going to say in case I spoil it for someone else. The ending also made me feel a little sad. It isn't full of gore and girls screaming and running up the stairs, it does have a lot more going for it than that. An enjoyable plot with some scary moments in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a great little hidden gem! 8 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
I say this is a great hidden gem as I'm not sure how well known it is. I'm usually in the know about any film along these lines, but alas I only found out it existed last week.

I'm glad I invested my time and watched it because it really is a good film. I'll be honest, I wasn't sure about the exchange between the two leads in the opening part of the movie, but I quickly got over that and really started to believe in the characters.

The film itself is really atmospheric and is best watched at night to sustain the tension. It's great that films like this are still getting made, it manages to stay clear of the usual cliches you tend to find in modern movies of this sort. You perhaps could argue some elements of the story are not entirely original, however I feel the film's different elements linked together very well and it made great use of it's location. I won't spoil the plot, suffice to say, I think it's better for anyone who hasn't seen the synopsis to forego reading it and just watch the film. All in all a 4/5 for me.

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Ah, yes, the old "who needs a ride?" trick to spend some quality time with a hot coed - why didn't I think of that when I was in college? You get your chance to wow and impress the girl, and she gets the ride home she needs without having to worry about riding a bus - everyone's happy, right? Not in this case - and that's putting it mildly. It makes for one terrific movie, though. I know some people won't embrace this story, but I loved it. Sure, it has a few rough edges, but it's a surprisingly intelligent, atmospheric, gripping little gem of a film. And, while it's more of a psychological thriller than a horror film per se, Wind Chill has its creepy moments. I don't know if I was just off my guard or tired or what, but this thing even elicited a small cry of surprise from my throat at one point - and that almost never, ever happens.

The best thing about Wind Chill - well, actually the best thing about it is Emily Blunt - but the next best thing is the film's ability to move in different directions at just the right time. Just when you think you have it all figured out, the story squirts right out of your arms like a greased pig. This makes the film a little more convoluted than some viewers might like, resulting in some confusion - despite the fact that I believe it spoon feeds you almost too much in the end. We're so used to the almost complete lack of creative ideas coming out Hollywood that your first instinct is to compare what you are seeing with other movies. The filmmakers in this case actually use that to the film's advantage, however. When you're wondering whether this is another Wrong Turn, The Hitcher, Jeepers Creepers, The Hills Have Eyes, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly effective 11 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I originally caught this because of the fabulous Emily Blunt, but it turned out to be a nicely appropriate flick when home alone on a snowy night... And as I have a ridiculously short attention span, I was pleasantly surprised when I realised I'd sat there for 90mins completely hooked.

The basic plot is 'road trip goes wrong' but the characters are well written and well-played (you're never quite sure who to trust for a long time), the twists and turns play out well and the ending made sure it stuck with me.

The relationship between the characters is nicely drawn, there are some simple ideas used to very good effect and I can't say much more without dropping spoilers... Definitely recommended.
