Editorial Reviews

Based on H.P. Lovecraft's "Cool Air," Sam Jackson, an aspiring writer, gets a job as a clerk in an inner city grocery owened by a mysterious Dr. Munoz, a former scientist who claims to have a rare skin condition that forces him to live in sub-freezing temperatures. However, as Sam is later horrified to learn, Munoz died some time ago, but has kept himself alive through occult measures and the flesh harvested from his victims. Now facing death at Munoz's hands, Sam must decide whether he will join Munoz's unholy ranks to save his own hide - literally...

1.0 out of 5 stars It MIGHT have worked if... November 25, 2008
Format:DVD
The ENTIRE cast had been replaced.

We've all seen similar stories before. Some things about the cinematography were strong, while other scenes were so contrived that I wound up adding my own lines after a bit; a habit picked up from years of Mystery Science Theater and Monty Python: the only way of making it through a brutally ridiculous movie. I'm a Lovecraft fan, too, but I've never read this story.

If this idea had been handed to a competent group of actors, it'd probably be decent, but Dr. Munoz and his performance were the most transparent I've seen in a long time. If this one's in your local rental kiosk, and you like to toss a few lines into a bad movie during supposed ultra-dramatic moments, grab it!

As far as I can tell, the cover is the most frightening thing with this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bleak But Intriguing Spin On A Lovecraft Story August 30, 2009
Format:DVD
An unusual H.P. Lovecraft adaptation set in modern times, Chill is a bleak and unsettling horror tale about a man, Sam (Thomas Calabro) who goes to work at a convenience store in a gritty, run-down section of the city, and ends up forming a bond with the store's strange owner, a recluse (Shaun Kurtz) who supposedly has a rare disease that renders him able to live only in cold envirornments, such as the permanently refridgerated rooms in the back of the store's building. In reality (and this isn't a spoiler at all, it's apparant very early in the movie), the recluse suffers from no conventional 'disease' at all, he's a practioner of the dark arts whose use of the book Necronomicon (I don't recall if it was ever referred to by name, but it's obvious that's what it is) has allowed him to come back from death. In his current state he's prone to rot at normal temperatures, and needs to (with help from his circle of acolytes, which he seems to be subtly trying to recruit the movie's protagonist into) regularly replace both skin and organs that wear out with fresh replacements, while he combs the Necronomicon for a method of perfecting his reanimated state. Meanwhile, Sam begins a relationship with Maria (Ashley Laurence of Hellraiser fame), who runs a shop on the same street, which is complicated by the fact that she's being harassed by her ex, a corrupt cop (James Russo).

Come to think of it, it's ironic that Hellraiser alumni Laurence is in this, because it was in a write-up for the movie Hellraiser - Deader (not featuring Laurence, but she Was in four of the other chapters) that I noted that 'bleak' was perhaps the hardest mood to get right in a movie.

H.P. Lovecraft would roll over in his grave and laugh to death...and then maybe cry a little.
