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.
