Product Description

Product Description

The gates of hell are made of ice in this tense horror thriller paying homage to The Thing and Assault on Precinct 13.

Four technicians and scientists at an alpine research station discover a glacier of blood high in the mountains. Testing the red liquid oozing from the ice, they discover a new alien organism with the astonishing capability of transforming the local wildlife into horrific hybrids and monster mutations. With the Minister of the Environment hiking to the station for an official visit, many frightening questions must be answered if the confrontational team are to survive and cope with the giant wood lice, the beetle-foxes, crossbred flying predators and much, much worse...

‘A slice of horror reminiscent of John Carpenter's 'The Thing'"--Loaded

A smart, inventive and fun creature feature.'--Jonathan Hatfull, SciFi Now

‘A good, gruesome eco-horror movie with properly monstrous monsters and many nasty turns'.--Kim Newman, Empire

"A creature feature with plenty of guts"--Horror Channel

"A cracking shocker with bucket loads of blood"--Horror Channel

Also known as ‘The Station’, Blood Glacier is set in the Alps where we meet a group of beardy, scientists (except the lady one) who are monitoring the glaciers to inform us more about global warming etc. We have one who has stayed there for too long after a relationship went south as indeed did she. This is Janek who likes a drink and his companion dog – ‘Tinnie’ which I think is short for tinnitus – well if the cap fits and all that.

Anyway one day the glacier has turned rather red and seems to be oozing some sort of ‘stuff’. After examination the scientist boffins proclaim that it is definitely organic, but in true ‘don’t go back to the dangerous place’ fashion, they need more samples and so will have to return – mwah!!

Then we have a ‘worse for wear’ Janek spying a mutant fox – and he is taken less than seriously. There is also a visit from the environment Minister the following day and she is being accompanied by Janek’s lost love Tanja. The thing is should they ward off the Minister because of a potential danger from a rabid fox thing or let them come to secure future funding? Well of course they won’t put them off and then things start to get strange as not only animals but birds and insects start to appear that have never been seen before and they are all rather violent too; cue the gore and drills and guns and spikes etc

Before you can say mutant infectious freaks, things go very bad indeed. Now some horror fans did not like this but I loved the fact that they are proper made up mutant things and none of the CGI cop out that we are becoming so used to. There is a bit of CGI but only when needed for SFX. The acting is actually extremely good and so is the cinematography. It has been compared to ‘The Thing’, but if you view this with no preconceptions then I hope, like me, you will be very pleasantly surprised – only not too pleasant as it turns out.

There's something special about horror set in sub-zero conditions that just adds another dimension to such stories for me: 30 Days of Night and The Shining are excellent examples of tales that have been greatly enhanced by the characters having to deal not only with their respective antagonists but also to contend with the adverse weather conditions and the isolation thrust upon them by the harsh climate. Boldly, Blood Glacier quotes a review as "reminiscent of John Carpenter's The Thing", which is for me, one of my all-time favourite horror films...

I was a little sceptical about watching this film at first since the title isn't exactly inspiring but the comparison to The Thing and learning that the man behind this Austrian flick is Marvin Kren, who was responsible for 2010's Rammbock (AKA Siege of the Dead and Berlin Undead) instilled some hope in me.

The film starts out with a bit of an eco-message which could easily have consumed the rest of the movie but simply sets the scene with some passing references throughout the film thereafter. We are introduced to the main characters and fairly quickly, things start to go wrong for all involved at the remote alpine research station.

Blood Glacier employs both practical and CGI effects appropriately but it is with the former that I found the film to be particularly impressive. This film marks a welcome return to quality practical effects that are lacking in many modern genre films and for many viewers, will leave their stomachs roiling at times. The monstrous hybrid creatures mentioned in the film's synopsis may, in writing, appear preposterous; however, the set up and explanation for their "evolution" is well thought out and an expository moment later in the film adds considerable depth to this aspect of the film.

Here's a fun game... watch `Blood Glacier' and give yourself ten points every time someone mentions rabid foxes. I would say drink an alcoholic drink, but you'd probably need hospital treatment if you did that.

In `Blood Glacier' we join an assortment of bearded geologists studying a glacier somewhere in the natural wilderness. Then, one fateful day, their glacier looks like it's made up of blood. Although it's quite pretty it does have the drawback of produces rabid foxes. Okay, so the `rabid foxes' turn out to be an assortment of monsters, but the geologists still seem to refer to them as `rabid foxes' for much of the film (even when Santa Clause arrives with his butt-kicking wife).

What you have here is a homage to John Carpenter's classic, `The Thing.' I don't say `rip-off' because that would be running Blood Glacier down and, despite its reliance on rabid foxes and baldy-beardy men, it's actually pretty fun. Yes, it has subtitles, so be prepared for that, but the effects are cool, the monsters well thought out and not that much (if any?) CGI effects which ruin so many films. The cast does as well as any cast in these situations. Of course there are always going to be a few daft moments where people do that thing Ripley does in Alien where they sacrifice humans to save animals, but, apart from that, if you're a fan of foreign horror, or liked The Thing, I'd give this one a go.

It also includes the rather surreal line, `Stop eating that banana while you're crying!' I don't know why that amused me so, but it did.
