Product Description

Christmas break. A young woman catches a ride home from a stranger she meets through a college ride board. Racing to beat a severe winter storm, the two young travelers take a shortcut down a remote country road, only to find themselves forced into a snow bank by a mysterious vehicle that engages them in a dangerous game of chicken. Over the long night that ensues, an intense relationship develops between the pair as they must brave the elements and confront the road's sinister legacy that dates back to the terrible events that occurred there in the 1950s.

Amazon.com

Good start to this discreet horror film, as one of those nightmare-fantasy road-movie ideas gets a tryout: What if the rideshare lift you got from a classmate over winter break turned really, really bad? Recently jilted college co-ed Emily Blunt finds herself catching a ride with a fellow student (Ashton Holmes) who seems to know much more about her than he should. It's a snowy night, and a turn-off from the main highway becomes just as crazy as any idiot could've told you it would be. Much of the remainder of the film seems to be a variation on the kind of urban legend (well, rural legend) that gets turned into a baleful country song. That's where it gets, literally, bogged down: the early scares and red herrings are well-managed, but when it comes time to actually supply an explanation for its apparitions, Wind Chill flops. The movie is produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh's company, and directed by one of their protégés, Gregory Jacobs. The most effective thing about it (other than some half-formed allusions to Nietzsche, which might explain the central mystery) is the abrasive relationship between the two riders. Blunt (following her success in My Summer of Love and The Devil Wears Prada) creates that rarity, a young woman who does not seem to want to be loved by the audience. This nurtures some believable tension, after which the drifts begin to get thick. --Robert Horton

Customer Reviews

I had to wait until the last 15 minutes of the movie for this to happen.
Bartok Kinski
Great acting, meaningful dialogue, and unlike most horror movies, the plot has real direction from beginning to end.
beck
I usually can find something to like about almost any movie, and enjoy many "so bad it's good" kind of films.

(3 1/2 *'s) George Clooney and Stephen Soderbergh have teamed up once again to produce `Wind Chill,' a horror movie that's more and less than one expects from a horror film. First of all, it's equally a survivor story and a stalker/romance as well as ghost story with a colorful history. Don't get me wrong, there are some scary moments in the movie, but the film admirably relies more on suspense and ambiguity in its presentation. All of it comes together in a way that's as invigorating as a cold, arctic blast from Canada.

The movie starts with some familiar on-the-road setup, complete with the car that breaks down and everything goes wrong. From there the developments are often different, however. Mysterious without names, the "Gal" (Emily Blunt) foregoes the plane ride from college exams before holiday break and decides to take the Greyhound bus. That is until she gets a text message during an exam inviting her to hook up with a ride from the posted message board. She finds someone who's headed to Delaware, so on a lark she calls to make the connection.

The "Guy" (Ashton Holmes) seems wholly accommodating, except they both are in many ways a mismatch. She finds him asleep at the wheel, waiting in the parking lot. She doesn't have much room to put her stuff, but has less room to complain when she shows up late in the first place. He shows a keen interest in her, even imposing on her cell phone calls and demanding her to engage in conversation as "her part of the deal".

Things aren't as they seem, and, ambiguity is a cornerstone to the movie's development. It turns out that he knows a great deal more about her than she would expect, and his interest becomes more than practical, especially when he refuses to let her pay her share of the gas money.

Honestly, I thought this movie was fantastic. I have been excited to see this since I read about it in Fangoria a few months back. The only other film I had seen Emily Blunt in was Devil Wears Prada, which was not my cup of tea, but she was best part of that film. And there aren't a lot of people that 'do' creepy as good as Martin Donovan's cop; and he does not dissapoint in this either. Emily's co-star, Ashton Holmes, from History of Violence, was perfect as the shy, slightly stalkerish 'guy'. The non- use of character names for Blunt and Holmes' characters just adds to the erieness (?) of this film. However, the story is so friggin good that you don't notice these two don't have names! And the fact that these two are, for the most part, the only two faces on the screen for 90% of the film, is a statement to their acting ability that they can hold the audience. I felt kind of sad as I read some of the other reviews of this film, as I relaized that no one gets scared, or better, creeped out anymore by something as simple as a blurred figure walking by a wrecked car, with a girl inside, in the middle of a snowbank. Think about it, you're alone in a car that just crashed, on a desolate road mind you, into a snowbank. The driver leaves to find help, leaving you to attempt to tape up the gap in the window. Your breath has fogged the windows to the point that you cannot clearly see outside. There isn't a soul insight. Or so you think. Suddenly there is movement outside the window. You can't see who it is; assume it's your friend...except this figure keeps shuffling by the car...oblivious to it and the person inside. It's pitch black, snow is falling and you need help. What do you do? Obviously you have to see this scene to really get the idea of what these characters went through.Read more ›

I have read several reviews of this movie (1 - 3 star reviews). The one thing I think they have missed watching this film is that you can't compare it to the Saw movies or other slasher films or Rosemary's Baby or apocalyptic movies. I think in their rush to find a niche in which to put this movie, they forget there is one that doesn't need lots of CGI and blood and demons to be scary.

Wind Chill (inaptly named) is simply a good old fashioned ghost story full of supernatural happenings and claustrophobic scenes. I have seen it five times and there are still scenes I still jump from.

A pair of college kids, a beautiful but unreachable young woman (wonderfully played by Emily Blunt) and a sketchy, odd young man (played surprisingly well by Ashton Holmes) with an old questionable car end up pairing up to ride home from College for a vacation break. The creepiness begins here as the guy has packed a bunch of foods more likely for a romantic picnic than sustenance for a road trip. Unfortunately, one of them forgets to put the food back in the car as they leave the dorm parking lots.

We know the guy is up to no good from the beginning. The self-involved girl waited too long to plan her trip home and he was the only seemingly decent way she could find at the last minute that wasn't going to cost her a lot of money. They ride for a while and we get the sense that she is foolishly disconnected from the choices she has made. She puts on the music she likes, she makes phone calls thus ignoring the guy altogether. It is obvious this is not exactly what he had planned.

They finally hit the interstate in Pennsylvania headed home. The guy stops for gas at a slightly run down but serviceable station on the side of the road. This is where the story really begins.
