4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly eerie film... May 1, 2008
By Dillon
Format:DVD
I had heard about this movie on a couple of my favorite movie websites and I decided to check it out when I noticed it was going to be showing at a small theater near my college campus. I wasn't expecting much; in all honesty I was hoping it wasn't going to be so cheesy I was going to have to leave half way through. But "The Last Winter" was a very, very cool little film with a couple of very eerie and creepy scenes that really come out of nowhere. The story revolves around an oil drilling crew stationed in Alaska who experience supernatural feelings and visions before a horrendous series of grisly incidents begins to take place. The movie has a fairly strong message about global warming and though I'm not one who worries about this because I really feel it's pushed on us so much to get political leaders elected more than anything, the movie still works. Fissenden is the director of the horror film "Wendigo" and this film deals with the ancient beasts, as well as the darkness of the human psyche. If you like bizarre horror and Ron Perlman from "Hellboy," then check this little gem out!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Indie Thriller! June 26, 2008
By Jsyn
Format:DVD
Don't let a few negative opinions dissuade you from discovering this chilling and intelligent indie gem.

If you are a fan of moody, thought-provoking thillers drenched in melancholia (very close in tone to something like John Carpenter's The Thing) then this film is for you.

If you gravitate towards the more popular, mainstream horror fare or just the gory stuff, try watching this with an open mind and hopefully expand your horizons!

A truly excellent genre film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of frightening... July 6, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not the best film I've ever seen, but a damn good one and definitely worth seeing, especially if you're in the right frame of mind. The story is creepy, the atmosphere even more so, and the acting is good for an independent film. If nothing else, this movie is a refreshing change of pace from the same old hollywood "blockbuster" sequels, tired "super hero" remakes, or yet another Will Smith retread... Just how many times can an actor play the same role in different films before audiences get bored?

Give it a shot. You may be surprised.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gets Under Your Skin August 13, 2008
Format:DVD
Somewhat problematic, but I enjoyed it. Before I get into what I liked or didn't like about this film, I wanted to comment on the negative reviews. I found it ironic that so many of them seemed to direct the majority of their anger at the environmental themes found in the film, as opposed to the camera work, storytelling, and acting.

It's a work of fantasy, people. If you don't happen to subscribe to current global-warming theories, this movie isn't attempting to change your mind. I mean, tying global warming to vengeful supernatural entities that may or may not exist outside of the minds of the protagonists? Do any of these reviewers really think Larry Fessenden is trying to suggest that this is what's really going on with the environment?

It struck me more as a "what if" film. If I watch a film about a young girl possessed by demonic entities, I don't base my enjoyment of it on whether or not I believe in god, the devil, or the minions of either.

I can enjoy The Exorcist, whether or not I believe that the events it depicts could happen in real life..

(puts soapbox away)

The Last Winter is slow, but very atmospheric. Comparisons to the John Carpenter version of The Thing are pretty apt, with regards to setting and tone, although The Last Winter is far less bleak and paranoid, and the characters are more appealing.

It certainly takes its time developing and the effects are modest, but fairly effective. Or maybe I just have a soft-spot in my heart for daemonic elk? Some very nice performances, as well, although Ron Pearlman's character is perhaps a bit overdone. The swooping camera movement that mimics the viewpoint of the crows (ravens?) that appear in the film as they fly over the survey camp was a very nice touch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Downright creepy movie. December 8, 2008
Format:DVD
Truth be told, I can understand why someone WOULDN'T like this film.

It has a slow burn. It leaves a lot to the imagination..and the ending doesn't tie up things
in a little bow. If you want literal by-the-numbers "scariness" then DON'T check out this movie.
Don't get me wrong, I love a good slasher film myself. This movie is not that kind of horror film.

Personally, I found THE LAST WINTER to be a truly original story, with tight and restrained writing..
balanced out with great character actors and a moral that doesn't end up being overly preachy.
I thought it was very smart. LeGros' character, Hoffman was my favorite character..and as much as I love Ron Perlman, I found his character to be the most stereotypical and "stock"-oriented.

However, I think that the best character in the movie is the landscape and the overall
"personality" of the scenery. The cinematography in this film is just beautiful.

Thematically and stylistically this film brings to mind John Carpenter's THE THING,
THE BIRDS by Hitchcock, and even ALIEN and SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES.
You can tell that Fessenden is a huge fan of Kubrick and Kurosawa as well. He does
A LOT with very little. That's masterful film making to me.

I really love horror flicks and I dig the entire spectrum; from B-movie splatter-fests to
atmospheric haunting psychological thrillers. THE LAST WINTER really fits into this
latter category with style, dread, and a seriously frightening message.

I liked this film quite a bit...I watched twice back to back and found some
beautifully subtle characterizations and gems of scriptwriting that you won't find in a first viewing.

Again, I understand why someone wouldn't dig it.

I hope I made it clear why I DO!

Not scary, just boring, disconnected and anticlimactic. If you liked The Thaw and either The Thing, then this movie is essentially the same, although slower and more nonsensical.
