Annika (Petra Nielsen) and her daughter Saga (Grete Hayneskold) had just moved into a snow-laden town somewhere in Sweden. Annika had accepted a position at a local hospital led by an enigmatic Doctor Beckert (Carl-Ake Eriksson). The area is currently experiencing a month-long lack of sunlight and abundance of polar weather. Meanwhile, a young cocky medical assistant named Sebastian (Jonas Carlstrom) steals a batch of red pills from Beckert's office, either out of curiosity or for a "party favor" for his friend Vega (Emma Aberg) isn't really clear. After Sebastian takes a red pill, he begins to feel a little sick and very odd; his senses become enhanced, he even begins to hear dogs talk and has gained an intolerance to normal food. Sebastian also finds that he is slowly developing a lust for blood...
Let's see, "Frostbitten" isn't going to make my list of favorite vampire films but I have to admit the movie does have its charm. I guess the best way to describe the movie would be a collision of quirky comedy and blood-soaked adrenaline, it bounces around jump scares and comedy while maintaining a feeling of tension. The movie's plot is full of gaps and characterization is kept at a bare minimum.Read more ›
Yes, there IS a talking dog in it with no other purpose than to be funny. Guess what?
Frostbite is MEANT to be funny, and is fully deserving of a place alongside Sean of the Dead, Galaxy Quest and American Werewolf in London. Pay no attention to those who miss the point - this is a great, vastly-underrated, and FUNNY horror film.
The story begins during the German's ill-fated assault on the Soviet Union in WWII. Now, the first thing i thought was "What if a localized vampiric plague was what really stopped the Third Reich's advance and won the war for the Allies? A great idea!" However, this is merely the genesis of the story. SS troops encounter an abandoned cabin to hole up in and find that they weren't the only evil bastards to have that idea. Slaughter follows. Fast forward six decades to modern Sweden, where cute new girl in town Saga meets adorably quirky goth goddess Vega, who is eager to befriend the fresh meat. There's a familiar-looking geneticist with a strange interest in a comatose girl (never a good thing) and a lot of mysterious pills at the hospital where Saga'a mother works, and all of the teens in town are attending a party. The perfect prescription for a vampire infection. And just in time for the region's own 30 Days of Night too.
Emma Aberg is beyond charming as Vega in this film.Read more ›
I'm not hugely into vampires, but this is a really great entree into the genre, both enormously funny and quite scary. The story is unconventional, the look is glossy and overall well done with the exception of a sudden and oddly inexeplicable ending. Part "Salem's Lot", part "Scream", this is a winner and a great little film.
