I usually can find something to like about almost any movie, and enjoy many "so bad it's good" kind of films.
Lee Cushing
Great acting, meaningful dialogue, and unlike most horror movies, the plot has real direction from beginning to end.
Also with this movie being about a car trapped in snow in sub-zero temperatures, she isn't showing any skin at all.

(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 ›

My spotlight reviewer buddy, JP, got me interested in this film and all I can say is thanks for the night of no sleep, JP! :>)

I'm going to keep this review short as JP's Picks, a current Spotlight Review, really got all the details dead on (I couldn't resist the pun), and today I am enjoying my 22nd anniversary with my wife; however, I have a little time here to write this review about this wickedly intense little chiller that is low on gore, sex and violence and high on chills, storyline, and character development. Of course, this may explain the love it or hate reviews you see posted. I'm okay with that as this kind of chiller really isn't for everyone tastes and many small films are like that as they are targeted at a specific audience.

I found the performances by the two leads to be exceptionally believable and layered. Emily Blount is a real standout in her role as "the girl" simply trying to get home from college by bumming a ride off a "guy" (no names in this flick) who may or may not be what he seems. Both characters are extremely well written and the kind of people you'd swear that you've met before in your life. They may even be representative of you yourself.

The story is deliberately slow moving, which will frustrate the action/violence lovers who may stumble upon this film; however, the action does increase, as does the suspense with each unfolding "episode" of terror in this story.

The plot of the story does have a "been there done that" feel, but there are numerous clever twists that play out in this somewhat familiar tale and that's is why I'm really reluctant to get into any details of the plot, but let's just say that this trip home the "girl" makes feels like a bad acid trip in the isolated Yukon with Stephen King at the wheel.

`Nough said. :>)
